This review is from: Cricut Expression 2 Electric Cutting Machine (Misc.)
This is another great Cricut machine. It cuts great. No need for an overlay, you can see it on your LCD. You can also zoom on the images so you can see them even larger. It cuts with all Cricut cartridges.
As far as the other reveiewer, this is not a machine that lets you cut out images that you design on your own. If that is something you wish to do, you need to explore other types of cutting machine. With Cricut, they have cartridges that you insert into your cutting machine. They have over 300 cartridges that you can buy with many different types of images available. There are so many to choose from.
Cricut has great quality products. They even have a Cricut Craft Room where you can purchase and design online and then you can cut it with your Cricut machine.
This is another awesome Cricut machine. You will love it!

I am researching cutting machines because I would like something that can cut out fabric/flannel for quilt squares so it doesn't take so long and also for cutting out felt for Christmas ornaments etc...I wont be cutting out a whole lot of paper as far as I know. Does anyone know which machine would be best for me? I have never owned one.

Try a Silhouette Cameo ! It's like a cricut but no cartridges needed you cut what you design on your computer ! I have both aCricut Imagine and a Cameo and truth be told I used the cameo ONCE ! I love the simplicity of poping in a cartridge picking the size and bam it cuts !! Other systems require learning the software which I have no patience for lol........ I like comparing it to a cell phone ! for instance take any brand cell phone and compare it to an iphone ! BOTH will perform the same tasks BUT the iphone will get you there faster and in 5 steps LESS!! ALSO another cutter to look into is the AccuQuilt Go ! its just for fabric ...... Good luuck in which ever direction you go !!

I've done research on the Brother scan n cut. It's an expensive machine but it appears at a glance to be what I need. I have an expression that I love, but the scan n cut will allow you to draw out a design scan it save the image and then cut it out. It's supposed to work on fabric also. There's a television show on pbs that uses this machine, scrapbook soup.
