Two words for the new Cricut Maker: Game Changer! After using and loving another cutting machine for years, I was introduced to the new Cricut Maker cutting machine after Fall Quilt Market last October. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
First of all, (vainly speaking) look how beautiful it is next to my Baby Lock Destiny! It was a visual match made in heaven!
But, to speak to the important features that make this the Ultimate Smart Cutting Machine, let me name a few:
- Cricut Maker has the tools to cut hundreds of materials quickly and accurately, from the most delicate fabric and paper to matboard and leather. Though I'm placing the limelight on the Maker's ability to help me sew, it's capacity to cut hundreds of other materials makes its purposes limitless. Fabric does not require a backing material, fusible or otherwise! This sets the Maker apart from and far above the competition. It is equipped with a real rotary blade, featuring a gliding, rolling action that is more accurate than my hands could ever be! And with a large 12" x 24" cutting mat, the capabilities are huge!
- Intelligent controls. Cricut Maker detects the direction of the blade and the cut pressure to match the material – which is essential for using tools like the Rotary Blade. The Adaptive Tool System will continue to be updateable with new products as they become available.
- Washable Fabric Pen. When using this pen, Cricut Maker automatically marks ready-to-make patterns in Design Space so you’ll always know how they fit together.
- Flexibility to use your own designs. You can upload and use your own images and fonts for free, in a variety of standard file formats. I've tried this and found it to be very user friendly. I'm currently working on a sewing project to share with you next week, and I'll be including the cut file for free, so be sure to check back in!
Want a little glimpse of this sweet machine in action? See the video below:
A helpful docking slot holds your tablet or smartphone while you’re busy. You can even charge your device using the USB port, and built-in storage keeps your tools and accessories organized and ready to use. I'll always take some organizational help.
