I saw this mentioned on a blog and don’t remember which one – I have so many on my Google Reader it is pitiful! but thought I would share another savings with you all. I am not really interested in the Accu Quilt Go Baby but did you know you can buy them on Amazon.com for about half of what you pay at some shops? Listed in shops for $139.99 on Amazon $67.99 limited number available I’m sure. I know some places run them on sale so maybe some of the on-line shops and quilt shops (plus JoAnne’s) have them for the same prices? If I had a JoAnne’s here I would know but I don’t and I do know they have coupons too so maybe some of you have bought at a discounted price.
Of course you still have to pay for the dies. They have some of those available also at various prices. They also have the large cutter available at a lower price – list price $349.00 – Amazon’s price $214.95
Because I do so much of my work by hand I wouldn’t be interested in getting either one of these unless it was a present or if I happened to win one. Between the machine and the dies it cost a lot and I am too cheap to spend the money for it – I would rather get fabric! I think purchasing the dies really adds up in cost after awhile. I just don’t crank quilts out fast enough to make it worth while and I don’t mind cutting out applique pieces while I sit and watch tv or whatever. Strips and blocks to me are easy to cut with the rotary cutter and the matt.
But I know a lot of you out there might be interested so I thought I would pass this savings on to you
