I love so many things about quilting: the fabric, the planning, the sewing, the quilting, and the finished creation.  But, I used to dislike two aspects of creating quilts: cutting the fabric and basting the quilts before quilting.  Since I found Accuquilt, I now love everything except the basting.


Welcome to the world of Accuquilt cutting machines, where precision meets convenience in the realm of fabric cutting. Accuquilt Go fabric cutting machines are essential tools for quilters and other sewing enthusiasts, revolutionizing the way fabrics are cut for various projects. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced quilter, these machines offer incredible benefits and streamline the cutting process, allowing you to achieve accurate and consistent results every time.

Benefits of Accuquilt Cutting Machines

Accuquilt cutting machines bring a multitude of benefits to your quilting journey. First and foremost, they provide unmatched precision, ensuring that every fabric piece is cut with accuracy and consistency. This precision saves you time and effort compared to traditional cutting methods, giving you more time to focus on the creative aspects of your projects.

They save you a ton of time!  Need I say more?

Additionally, Accuquilt machines help reduce fabric waste by optimizing the use of each piece, maximizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness. With Accuquilt, you can enjoy the advantages of efficient, precise, and waste-free fabric cutting.

How Accuquilt Cutting Machines Work

Accuquilt cutting machines operate on a simple yet effective cutting system. The heart of the system lies in the use of specialized dies that are placed on the machine's cutting surface. These dies are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, allowing you to cut the fabric into precise shapes for quilting, appliqué, and other sewing projects.

With a turn of the handle or push of a button, the die, loaded with fabric and topped with a special cutting mat, the machine simply rolls the die under a roller that applies pressure to the die.  This pressure then cuts through multiple layers of fabric in one swift motion.

The result is clean, accurate fabric pieces that are ready to be used in your creations.  Accuquilt Go cutting machines are compatible with various types of fabric, making them versatile tools for all your fabric-cutting needs.

Models of Go Cutters

Accuquilt makes three models of Accuquilt Go cutters. 

  • The Original Go Cutter
  • The Go Big Cutter
  • The Go Me Cutter

Accuquilt also makes a Studio cutter and Studio dies designed primarily for stores and organizations.  Since I don’t have a Studio cutter and you cannot use the Studio dies in the Go machines, none of the Studio products are reviewed here.

The newest cutter is the small Go Me cutter.  It can use dies that are 5 or 6 inches wide.  Just because it is small and easy to carry around doesn’t mean you can’t cut a lot of fabric with it.  The biggest die that works with it is an impressive 6x24-inch.  Its small size makes it extremely easy to take with you, store and set up.  If you have more than one cutter, you will be amazed at how often you reach for this little workhorse.  Want to know more about this little cutie?  Check out the Full Review.

Choosing the Right Accuquilt Cutting Machine

When it comes to choosing the right Accuquilt cutting machine for your needs, consider factors such as the size of your quilting projects, portability requirements, and budget constraints.

If you primarily work on small to medium-sized projects or need a portable option, the Go or Go Me fabric cutters are excellent choices. On the other hand, if you tackle larger quilting endeavors and prefer electric-powered convenience, the Go Big electric fabric cutter is worth considering.

Also, consider which dies you are going to most use.  The Go Me uses dies 5 or 6 inches wide, the original Go uses all the dies except for the Go Big dies, and the Go Big can use all the Go and Go Big dies.

Do you have any hand arthritis or arm weakness issues?  If so, you might appreciate the push-button ease of the Go Big machine, even if it is larger and takes up more space.

These days, your budget is also a factor.  Do you feel easing into this type of investment might be best served by starting with the lowest-cost Go Me machine, or are you excited enough to jump into the deep waters with the powerful and versatile Go Big machine?

 Assess your specific requirements to select the Accuquilt cutting machine that best fits your quilting aspirations.
