I think we will be ordering his Maker soon. HA! No, in all seriousness, I do not know how I lived without this machine before today.
I love having the ability to cut fabrics without having to back them with heat and bond or some other stabilizer. The cutting of felt is also a HUGE selling factor. Since we don't have access to the wood cutting blade, I cannot attest to it's wood cutting ability but if it is like the rest of the Cricut line-up, I am sure it will live up to the hype.
It is a bit heavier than the Explore series but that doesn't bother me. It is still light enough that you can take it with you on the road if you wish. It will also fit nicely in the existing hard side Cricut bags made for the Explore series. Sweet! If you are familiar with the new sewing patterns that Cricut offers though, you will want to invest in a 12x24 mat right away as many of the patterns require the longer mat. Other than that, I am super pleased with this machine, the accessories and the Cricut brand. Well, all except their no-coupon policy. THAT could change and I would be a customer for life.
I might add too, that you can purchase your Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) from other vendors besides Cricut and they work just as well, if not better. Especially for UV protected auto/marine Vinyl products.
To start, I am a novice and knew nothing about how to use this machine or what they cut. I just heard people love the Cricut and it looked fun but I had no idea the Maker would be this amazing. I looked at older models and saw that in order to cut fabric, you had to apply heat and bond. Honestly, if I had to do that to cut any fabric, I never would have cut fabric. It would be an absolute pain. The Cricut Maker cuts fabric, felt, leather and denim like butter. And how do you cut it? Just slap it on the sticky mat! What?! So easy!
Figuring out the Cricut Design space was so insanely easy too. I had a couple images I wanted to use and uploading them to the site and placing it wherever I want it to be cut is so awesome. That rotary blade is so precise, I was so impressed. It cuts lace and delicate material perfectly. And then really thick synthetic leather, not a problem!
My favorite thing so far has been cutting felt. It's SO EASY!!! In a few hours I made several dozen flowers and bows---oh my goodness! Do you know that I have been making felt bows and flowers by hand for years for fun and not only were they poorly shaped, they took me a MILLION YEARS!
I am so excited about the neat things to do with the Cricut Maker and I will definitely be trying heat transfer vinyl soon. We make matching Disney shirts and either pay t-shirt companies a ton of money or do that crappy printer paper iron on stuff but now I can do HTV with the Cricut Maker and I am so excited to play!!!
Seriously, if you are a novice or an expert and are wondering if you need this--YES YOU NEED THIS!!!!! It is 100% worth every single penny. I am in loooooove! Here are a few of the flowers I made in seriously a couple hours in the photo below.
I've been learning how to use the Design Space over the last couple of days and it's really great online software.
I'll update my review when I've had a chance to mess around with it a bit more.
I'm really loving this machine. The cuts are SO good! I didn't think it'd be able to cut things so small and precise, but it can. I'm having lots of fun and I'm just at the tip of the iceberg as far as what this machine can do. I can't wait for the knife blade to come out in a month or so. I want to make some leather jewelry and other accessories.
