Okay, the exclamation point is theirs, not mine. I am honestly not as excited about this as I thought I would be. 😦 Is it easy to use? Absolutely.
*So, why the footnote? I was really not pleased with how uncleanly the cuts were made. With only one layer of fabric, there was less compression through the rollers, and the single layer was not cut through. Trying to remove the cuttings caused threads to snag and run, and there was a lot of trimming out to do. With four fabrics at once, the bottom layer was clean, the second layer was 80% cut, and the third and fourth layers required an awful lot of scissor work to free the shapes. So much for the massive time savings of cutting fabrics, was all I could think. If I had paid the original MSRP of $350, I would be extremely upset. Having paid $100 less than that, I am still quite disappointed. It looks much better on YouTube, I thought. 😉
Other thoughts… Perhaps using another layer, like of cardboard, to really increase the pressure of fabric onto the blades will help. Also, since to date I only have that free “value die” that came with the cutter, maybe the ones you actually buy are a bit more effective. I have hope, and will continue to play. If I can’t find some marked improvement, I fear this baby is Etsy-bound.
