Hi, I am purchasing an Accuquilt Go with a friend. We will each buy our own mats and share the dies. Are there any little hot tips that you have learned from experience with using the GO cutter that would help me before I order? Any information would be appreciated. Such as ....

Visit the AccuQuilt website's AccuQuilt U for tips and tricks.

I have the cutter but hardly ever use it. It's great for cutting scraps into squares and triangles or short strips. I find when using the longer strip dies the fabric gets pushed along making for less accurate cuts. Their remedy is to put paper between the fabric and the cutting mat. Not a great solution for me.

Hope you and your friend enjoy it more than I do.

I just got one for a gift from my spouse! I love it. I found dies on sale at  quilters warehouse .com.  They are having a 30% off sale on all dies. I also got a few from Amazon. I compared all prices. These are the cheapest and best selection. I love the dies with curves, because they are so difficult to get them correct when using templates and rotary cutter. Like drunkards path, another one that is great is the Rob Peter to pay Paul. I also like the shapes for applique. The snow flakes are beautiful!  I did not get the strip dies, These are easy to cut, and the dies are expensive. If you have carpal tunnel or arthritis in your hands and fingers, this machine is great. I love it, and it's fun. Just another fun tool in my arsenal. By the way they have the cutter on sale there too for 182.    This is the go.   Good price.   Let us know how you like it!

HI, thanks so much for the hot tip, but I just went to the website and I can't find a single accuquilt item? Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place? The site has all the different names of companies down the left hand side? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Venessa
