  • Accuquilt Go Big Fabric Cutter Review After 9 Years of Use
Go Big Fabric Cutter


We all love bigger and better, especially when it turns something manual into something electric-powered or when it means access to even bigger dies.  I know I wanted it the minute I first saw it.

But, that can be a rather personal decision because it truly is an investment in your sewing – whether as a hobby or a home-based business.  Let’s look at some of the times when this investment makes good sense.

  • You are really busy and it would be a lifesaver to speed up your fabric cutting
  • You have a home-based sewing business and it makes sense in terms of speed and efficiency to harness electricity to help
  • It is getting harder to cut fabric due to arthritis in your hands
  • You have other health issues that a power-based cutter would save you pain or discomfort, such as
    • Arm muscle weakness
    • Hand muscle weakness
    • Trembling fingers or hands
    • Hand or arm nerve damage
    • Back problems
  • You have a home-based sewing business and you would like to add some of the Go Big dies to help with the creation of some of your offerings like bowl cozies
  • You would like to make some of the bigger block-on-board quilt blocks like the 12-inch churn dash or 12-inch crazy quilt blocks
  • And maybe the most important one - You just love the speed and convenience of a large electric cutter

I admit the last reason was why I bought it, and I have never regretted it.  Sewing and quilting are my one indulgence, and so I indulge. 

With its motorized functionality, you can say goodbye to manual cutting efforts and let the machine do the work for you. The Go Big cutter is a game-changer, enabling you to easily tackle ambitious quilting projects while ensuring precise and accurate cuts every time.

When folded up to slip into your closet, this machine measures 19x6x11 inches, and when open for business, it is 19x18.5x6 inches.  The major size difference from the other machines is its weight.  Because it is motorized it weighs in at 23 pounds, which makes it harder to take with you somewhere else.

The Go Big cutter in these photos was purchased in 2014 and it has seen a LOT of use and a few moves.  Take a look – it still looks like new even though it has been moved around and frequently used over the last NINE years.  It appears to be a well-built product, and I have never had any issues with it.
