It works with Accuquilt dies that I have but I still don't understand the embossing part for fabric.
I didn't view the videos because I'm not interested, but the only time I have embossed fabric was embossing roses on velour. You used a craft stamp and a hot iron. A touch tricky to imprint the rose and not melt the rubber stamp, but it worked. The machine may a have a feature like that.
I have a sizzix machine and tons of dies that I use for scrapbooking and a Cricket that I have used to cut shapes out in fabric for applique so I don't think this is something I would really care to spend that kind of money on. Looks like it would do the same thing as my Sizzix only with electric instead of muscle power..
Thanks for the replies. I have been looking at go and studio cutters, then I saw this. I will wait awhile to see how popluar it becomes.
I watched a demo of this machine on a tv craft show and why they are featuring the embossing part I don't know. If you have trouble manually turning a die cut machine this machine will use the dies for many brands of dies and auto feed the die through the machine. All you need to buy is the dies you want to use with the machine or use what you have. If you want to emboss paper and have a manual embosser this will replace it. For the price it's cheap for die cut self feed machine that will use all brands of dies.
hope this gives a bit more idea on the machine. I think these people have done their homework it appears very easy to use and cut and embossed well.
the US price of $199 is awesome as our price here in New Zealand is $399 and even with the exchange rate that is almost double what you are paying. I wish I could import it for the $129 someone quoted for the wholesale price.
I like that you can use a variety of die brands
