Fabric Cutting Machines

I fell on an icy sidewalk and broke my wrist this winter! Finally looking into a fabric cutting machine since I cannot cut myself. Anyone have thoughts or suggestions? Anything bad to go with the good of my options?

I do not own one. I know somebody who bought one and she has problems with it cutting all the way through. Don't remember the brand.

You can use either hand for turning the crank just turn it around, it will feed from both sides. I have the regular GO and have used it a lot. Love the accurate cuts.

I am new to this site but I wanted to contribute my experience for what it's worth. I broke my right arm a while ago and although it has healed, it's still weak. I bought the Sizzix Fabi at an outlet store for a ridiculously low price, and I tried it. Now I really want an AccuQuilt Go Big (the electric one) because I've seen it work with Eleanor Burns' demonstrations in the Block Party videos so I know it works, and it's big enough to accommodate all of the Accuquilt dies. The Fabi cuts ok if you're just cutting a couple of layers of cotton fabric. I think it's designed to work better with paper backed fabric, which would mean I would have to iron freezer paper onto my fabric to get a good cut from it... It's also limited as to size. It will only take the smaller dies, I think no more than 6" wide. As soon as it goes on sale I'm getting the Go Big! :)
