A tip: you might want to press a fusible to the back of your fabric before arriving at the meeting in case you want to have your letters ready to be ironed onto your project once they have been cut!  The second die in the set contains the second half of the alphabet (N-Z). To learn about the rest of the Go! Baby dies our guild owns, in the SEARCH box at the top of the Library Home Page, type in Go!  Letters are 3" tall, and the widest is 4-1/2" wide.

Go! Baby Accuquilt Cutting Machine - Accuquilt, Go! Baby

6" cutting width (as compared to the larger Go! cutter's 10" cutting width) Many, many thanks to Mary Reder for donating this Go! Baby by Accuquilt magical cutting machine to our guild, along with a few dies. This new "toy" has opened up a world of fun for our members. This machine will cut fabric 90% faster than using rotary cutters or scissors, and is absolutely accurate.  It can cut up to six layers of cotton, satin, or silk at one time.  It will cut up to four layers of cotton with fusible ironed to it.  Cut two layers of wool at a time. Cut one to two layers at a time of flannel, fleece, batting, or felt.  Cut one layer of leather or denim at a time.  One-quarter inch seam allowance is included in geometric shapes.  Dog-eared corners are already cut.  8.5 pounds.  This little machine does not work with the 10 x 10" or 10 x 24" dies, but there are a few guild members (including Patti Bassignani and Karen Lavender - email them ahead of time to see if it is convenient for them to bring in a machine) who have the larger machines -- so I recommend cultivating their friendships and offering to wash windows for them in exhange for their schlepping their machines in to guild meetings for you to use the larger dies (including the alphabet that the guild owns).  Hint: to conserve fabric, cover only the shape you want to cut, not the entire die (such as particular letters, or a certain flower).  Hint: for asymmetrical shapes, such as a cat facing a certain way, place fabric-pattern-side-up if you want the shape to look exactly like the shape of the die.  To face the cat in the opposite direction, place the fabric pattern-side-down for the shape to be cut as a mirror image. The machine is very easy to use, but you must be given a short lesson before checking it out.  Our Go! Baby experts are Jan Westerman, Caroline Pope, Patti Bassignani, and Karen Lavender.  If you are also an Accuquilt expert and would like to be listed here, please let Sharon 'the Librarian' Fry know.  We have many dies in our library.  If you own dies and would like to be on a list to loan your dies to fellow guild members, please inform Sharon Fry.  If you see a die that you would like for our library to own, please give all information to Sharon Fry.  The machine may be used at the meetings or reserved to take home. Hint: have your fabric cut and pressed before arrival.  Another Hint: if you are cutting irregular shapes that you are going to "applique" onto your surface, you might want to press a fusible to the back of the fabric before arriving at a meeting to cut (for instance: alphabet, cat, dog, flowers, snowflakes).   The machine and/or dies may be checked out of the library and absolutely MUST be returned to the very next meeting.  If you break or lose the machine or dies, you are responsible for reimbursing the library for the item(s).  Jan Westerman has put together a binder of hints and instructions that should be read.  Also, Jan W. has printed out an entire binder of patterns to be checked out with the 8" Cube set.  When on our Guild's website, on the Library page, type in the Search box the word Go! and find a list of Go! Baby dies we own, or are borrowing from members.  Looking forward to seeing your Go! Baby projects!  Welcome to the 21st Century!  Check out for more information.
