20 Reasons the GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter Will Keep You Quilting

Dec 19, 2016 2:13:25 PM / by AccuQuilt

Imagine not being able to do something you love because of a physical disability. What if you couldn't quilt anymore because your rotary fabric cutter caused you too much pain? Unfortunately, many quilters find that this is exactly what happens to them. Whether it's because of age or accidents, some quilters find they are unable to cut the quilting fabric that they need to make beautiful quilts.

Conditions such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and rotator cuff injuries can severely impact the enjoyment or even the ability to quilt for some people. Impaired eyesight and other illnesses can also really slow down even the most dedicated quiltmaker.




The GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter is the perfect solution to many of these problems. How do we know? Because our customers tell us so! Read some of the reviews and find out why the GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter allows quilters to keep doing what they love!

Saves my wrist!

I have the best daughters in the world, they wanted to purchase the GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter for Christmas but can't keep a secret so I received it early, Christmas came in May. This is a wonderful invention that helps ease arthritis pain caused from gripping and using a rotary cutter.

AccuQuilt GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter takes the pain out of cutting literally!! ;o)

I am very happy with my AccuQuilt Go Big! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Carpal Tunnel that makes cutting fabric painful. Not having to dread the chore of cutting the fabric out before getting started because of the pain has allowed me to just jump right into my project.


My husband surprised me with this for a Christmas present. He knows how I love to quilt but rotary cutting was really hard on my hands and so time consuming. I have made twice as many quilts because of the time saving. Love this product!!

Best gift ever!

My husband and daughter went in together to get me a Go Big Starter Kit for Christmas. I was seriously thinking of giving up quilting due to the arthritis in my hands. It was difficult and slow for me to use a rotary cutter--pretty much took the fun out of quilting. Now--it's so easy and fast! The best gift ever!

Soooo Easy

I purchased this cutter because I am visually impaired. It is getting more difficult to cut fabric and it takes me a long time since I want to make sure that I am cutting the fabric properly. Since purchasing this cutter in December and not using it until a few weeks ago. I Love it. It is quick and easy. I especially like it being electric. I have cut all of my leftover.fabric scraps into strips to make a quilt. You will not be disappointed purchasing this cutter!

The Go Big is Fabulous

I love quilting and try so hard to get perfect points. Getting old and retiring has provided me with more time to quilt but it has also come with age related problems like carpal tunnel and arthritis. It is getting more difficult to stand and cut.I watched Eleanor Burns using the Go Big and decided it was just what I needed. It is the best purchase I have ever made to help me make my quilts.

I wish I knew about this sooner!

I have herniated discs and cutting with a rotary cutter has become difficult and painful to use. My local quilt shop showed me the GO BIG electric fabric cutter. That was it; love at first site. Bought her and brought her home. So easy. Turn on, push a button and the die automatically glides through the machine. Voila, fabric cut, no pain, and I am ready to sew my blocks in no time.

Love, love, love this cutter!

I purchased the Go! Big Electric cutter hoping it would help me cut more with less effort due to having broken my wrist and arm, and having reduced strength after it healed. I couldn't be more pleased! The weekend it arrived, I reduced a 30 gallon bin of scraps to usable strips and squares in just 2 days. I wish I had bought this cutter sooner!

The Go! Big Fabric Cutter Starter Set is really great!

I am so impressed with the Go! Big Fabric Cutter Set. I bought it because I have MS and using a rotary cutter is almost impossible. Using the Go!Big lets me make accurate cuts very quickly. I am so happy that it enables me to continue with my passion: quilting!

Go! Big Electric Cutter

On recommendation from a friend, I checked into the Go! cutters. I went with the GO electric because I have MS and also a bit of arthritis in my hands. I could not be more thrilled with the cutter, the dies and their customer service.

Arthritis in wrist and hands

The fabric cutter Go Big has saved me from having severe pain in both hands and wrist. I know that my husband would help me cut but I like to be independent and play with my fabric. I worked for a long time with my hands and it is hard to ask for help when you want something done without having to wait until someone can help you. This has saved me time and prevented needless hand and wrist pain.

Incredible machine

I have waited a long time for this. This summer my rotary cutter slipped and cut the side of my left pointing finger nearly off. 5 stitches and much discomfort later my Hubby said go buy that machine.  It works flawlessly. Buy this machine!

Excellent fabric cutter!

I bought this fabric cutter for myself for an early Christmas gift. I'm so glad I splurged and got the electric one! I have arthritis in my hands and I KNOW I will appreciate this machine for many years to come. I am very happy with my GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter!!!

Go Fantastic Big!

I received the GO BIG for Christmas. Can easily cut through 6 layers with little ease. Even cuts through felted wool. Saves on the shoulder with the torn rotator cuff! Recommend this to all my quilting friends.

Sanity and Hand Saver

After hand surgery, my Doctor said that quilting was not in my future. I tried to withdraw from the addiction, but it was impossible - even when my hands would hurt so badly after just a few rotary cuts. So I purchased the GO! Big System. What a blessing. Now I can continue to do what I enjoy.


I have nerve damage in some of my fingers from chemo treatments, so cutting is a big problem. My husband gave this to me for Christmas so I can quilt again!!

Where have you been all my life?

I have only one hand, and although I manage pretty well, strip cutting has long been my nemesis. The Accuquilt makes them easy-peasy!  Since there is no handle to crank, I can focus on guiding the tray through properly.

Disabled quilter

I had the crank GO! cutter for several years. I have lupus and fibromyalgia and it was becoming very difficult for me to use my fabric cutter. What a blessing! I'm back to cutting quickly and doing it pain free!

What took me so long?

Oh my goodness! I received my GO BIG! Yesterday in the mail, and cut 4 quilts out in less than 3 hours, even ironing fabric. My arthritis has gotten bad in my hands, shoulders and wrists. This is a lifesaver and so fast.

Love It!

The Go! Big Electric Fabric Cutter is a dream come true. Due to arthritis I had to have both of my shoulders replaced and I had been looking for an easy electric fabric cutter. Thanks to AccuQuilt I now have one!! Every cut is just like I want it. Who could ask for anything more? I couldn't be happier!
