Amazing ~ technology is progressing faster and faster. Just think of the appliques that could be made and quilt labels would be so easy. I will have to wait until the price comes down though.

That is really neat, but I'm going to pass. I still have trouble changing the ink cartridge in my printer

Cheaper then most new sewing machines.

DH has access to a 3D printer at his job. I broke the spool pin on my Janome Jem machine and he made me a new one, exactly like the old one for a few pennies it cost for the plastic pellets. In fact he made me two, in case I broke another one.

It really is amazing what they can do these days. It won't take that long until they will be in reach of the average consumer. I can remember when it was prohibitively expensive to have a laser printer for personal use. I've had one for about ten years now. I had to replace the toner cartridge this week and was thinking I really should check the current prices as it is getting to the point where the most expensive part IS the toner cartridge.
