GOing, GOing, GOne

Two years ago, AccuQuilt gave me GO! Cutter to review along with three dies.  I tried it..and liked it.

Since then something that I did find hard was “working backwards”.   Typically when we make a quilt, we design around the fabric….with a GO!, we have to design around a shape.  I found myself wanting to work with smaller pieces and they don’t offer many dies that are small.  If you read my blog you know that I am not an applique-er and so many of their items feature applique.

I found myself making projects, so I could do a video, so I could get another die, yet I didn’t use the GO! in between video projects.

I found the storage space in my sewing room diminishing.   After putting on my “Yard Sale” earlier this month, I noticed more room in my cupboards and liked that….I liked it so much that I decided to do a little deeper cleaning.  If I haven’t used it…out it goes.

After careful consideration, I decided that I am going to sell my AccuQuilt GO! and the dies.  I thought I would wait for the “Yard Sales” but that was SO hectic that I don’t want to deal with the GO! goodies then too.   If anyone is interested, feel free to email me rogjok@iowatelecom.net.

I am so glad that I got a chance to try a GO!….all in all, it’s a fine product.  I am just feeling the need to downsize.

  1. Hi Jo,
    I have an accu quilt go and love it. I would be interested in buying some of your dies if you split up your stash! Karen

  2. you know, that is one of the reasons i didn’t purchase the machine to begin with. i drooled over it for a long time, and if i had been given it, i would certainly not have turned it down, but i just couldn’t bring myself to pay what they wanted for it, knowing that it may not be used that much. i think about the fact that you have to cut the pieces before you even put them into the dies, and wonder how much time and energy is really saved. i use my june tailor ruler with the slots for different size strips quite a bit, and couldn’t see the accu quilt saving me much time. maybe if i did more applique’, i would consider it more seriously.

  3. I tried the email address and my computer says invalid address.
    I would like a list with prices. Do you have Drunkard paths, large size and the chisel?

  4. I have a go use it almost every day and would love to have a price list. I do not have many dies yet, so can use almost anything.

  5. I’m interested in your go. Could you let me know what dies you have and also how much you would like to get for the package.

  6. Hi Jo
    I agree using a Go is a different way of thinking. I found that the strip dies I didn’t use but the others I did. I usually find a quilt pattern I want to do and then see which parts I can easily cut with the dies and then cut the rest the regular way. I have done several Bonnie Hunter quilts that way for example. And I like appliqué so if you let me know what dies you have and their prices I would be interested.
    Thanks, Crystal

  7. The question is…do I leave a note or is it sold? I guess I’ll leave a note. I’ve been looking at the Go for a while and the question always comes back to will I really use it otherwise it seems like a lot of money for one more thing to sit in my sewing room. If it isn’t sold, what price are you asking?

  8. I am glad I am not the only one that is shrinking things down and purging! I hope that you get a good price for the go and the die cuts- then you can put the money into fabrics and make more quilts! LOL

  9. Oh how I wish I would have seen your post sooner!!! :/ I want to buy a GO! so much!!! If by some chance you haven’t sold it yet, I’d love to talk to you about it!!! :o)
