What Dies work with the Go! Me

The Go! Me is compatible with all AccuQuilt Go! dies that are 6 inches or less in width. AccuQuilt recommends only using AccuQuilt dies with their machines. Dies from other manufacturers are not compatible.

There are over 160 GO! dies that can be used in the Go! Me. These come in the following sizes: 5″ x 10″, 6″ x 12″, 6″ x 6″, 6″ x 24″. Check out the Accuquilt Die Compatibility Chart.

Cutting with the dies is super easy. All you have to do is place your fabric on the die, add the cutting plate, and then crank the handle to push the sandwich out the other side.

What is the difference between the AccuQuilt GO! Baby and GO! Me

You may see the GO! Baby referred to on forums or articles, this cutting machine is discontinued but is essentially the same as the GO! Me. I specifically asked AccuQuilt what the difference was and this was the answer I received.

“The GO! Me and the GO! Baby are essentially the same machine with different branding. Both will use any of our GO! dies that are 5″ or 6″ wide.”

Overall Review

Overall, the AccuQuilt GO! Me Fabric Cutter is a nice, portable machine. Cuts are accurate and can save a lot of time if you are cutting multiple layers of fabric.

One downside to the machine is its limited size. If you are looking for something that is bigger or more versatile, check out other die cut machines for cutting fabric.
