    I am very confused by this product. One of their websites say you can use it for quilting and another says you should only use it for paper. If anyone has any info on this product I sure would like to know.

    I saw the info commercial too. The new Cricut Expession is supposed to be able to cut fabric and vinyl. The machine runs in the $300+ range (I think), comes with 2 style cartridges. I can't remember how much the extra cartridges are. Here is the link to thier website:

    A friend has the Cricut Expressions machine. It will cut fabric but the fabric has to be stabilized. She uses freezer paper or fusible. It will cut one layer of fabric. She uses it for fabric letters and applique shapes. It's a really nice machine.

    Quilter's Newsletter Magazine recommends the machine for applique. I read the review of the machine written there a few months ago.

    I saw the infomercial too. It looked intriguing but is it worth the price. Til I hear from someone who has one I don't think I will buy one.
