I also am looking to invest in a cutter and am interested to see what responses are to this question.

I add one question. If one buys an Accuquilt, what would he/she need to have. I would want to buy what would be used most of the time.

You have to purchase dies. Best to do more sleuthing through the ads for this machine to see if the dies are the sizes and shapes you will be using.

ETA: If there is a quilting expo near you, there may be a vendor demoing this product and may let you give it a try.

I don't have one, but I know several people who have them and absolutely love them. I haven't heard any complaints. You sure can't beat the accuracy!

I didn't find it useful at all, as it's not versatile enough and I thought it wasted fabric. I do LOVE my new Quilter's Slide Lock and it is much easier on my hands than trying to hold a regular ruler.

We got the Accuquilt Go for the quilt shop and tried it. It wasn't that great, so we traded up for the Accuquilt Studio, and that WAS GREAT!!!

I also have a Studio at home that we cut 5-6 layers of interlock knit on, and we LOVE it!

Hi Kelly,
I've been curious about the Slide Lock, but I don't see any reviews here on Pattern Review.
I'm wondering how difficult it has been to adjust to the fact that the Slide Lock has no markings? I've watched the video, and it would take me some time to adjust to using a cutting mats lines, and other rulers with lines to determine the cutting line.
I would really like the Slide Lock, but the lack of some sort of line , even if it was just one or two lines embedded in the ruler would be so helpful--
Any thoughts on this? Thanks

I bet for the quilt shop the Studio is great!!! I'd love that for my house, but on the road in the trailer, I'm thinking just the Go (not the BABY) would be good enough. Will have to figure out a way to justify buying 2 of them haha

Good to read that the Studio works so well! *eyeing that one* too
