Quilt With Us

I have been contacted by a friend who is thinking about getting the AccuQuilt Go! system for her mother.  Her mother has arthritis in her hands, making cutting pieces difficult.  As I know nothing about the system, this seemed to be the best place to get some information.  Would this be a good purchase or would there be a better one?  What are your feelings on this system?  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I have one and have used it a few times.  The pieces cut well and do remain consistent.  Lining up the fabric so the pattern matches can be tricky.  Parts are expensive, so watch for sales.

Annie, if you send your friend to Amazon.com you guys can read a lot reviews on it there. They have several reviews of people with Arthritis that swears this product has allowed them to keep quilting. Plus Amazon is pretty good with returns. I would think if it was to hard for her to use Amazon would take it back.

I love my AccuQuilt Go.  I've bought tons of dies, and have plans for each one.  It makes cutting much faster, easier, and accurate.  HOWEVER, I think it depends on how your friend's arthritis affects her hands.  You have to hold onto the handle pretty tightly, and depending on how many layers of fabric you use, it can take quite a bit of effort to turn the crank.  You can do fewer layers, but the dies work best and cut more completely with more layers (3-4??).  I've heard that a lot of people with arthritis love their AccuQuilt, so maybe she could try it out (they have demos at Jo-Anns from time to time).

Hi, Annie! How's the new sewing room?  Have heard people like the AccuQuilt, one lady swears by the larger one.  I guess which model depends on how much sewing you do.

Annie:  I dont own one but I have 2 friends that do and they love it.  Let;s hope you get more help on this one.
