The Cricut Maker Is The Ideal Tool for Beginner and Advanced Sewists Alike
If you do a lot of sewing – or maybe you want to do more – you need a
Cricut Maker. Maybe you’re a beginner who is intimidated by the many steps involved in creating a sewing project? Or maybe you’re a seasoned expert who simply can’t find enough time to do the sewing you love? You guessed it. You need a Cricut Maker. This amazing machine, in our opinion, is going to drastically transform the whole sewing process. Forget those time-consuming tedious bits that keep you from getting a sewing project done – with its innovative, modern approach the Cricut Maker is a cutting machine like no other. The Adaptive Tool System, gives the Maker incredible power! It can cut though a wide variety of materials, including fabrics of pretty much all thicknesses (less than 2.4 mm), with ease. It has 10 times the force of the Cricut Explore Cut Smart 2 System – that’s 4 kg of force!!! – and that means it can even cut tricky fabrics like denim and felt easily. They are no problem at all for the Cricut Maker!
Instead, of a dial like on previous machines, you digitally tell the Cricut Design Space to tell the machine what fabric you are cutting. This opens up the possibilities to way more material choices than before – hundreds at your fingertips! But here’s where they have taken it even one step (GIANT step) further. With the Adaptive Tool System and interchangeable cutting blades, the Cricut Maker automatically senses the blade and ensures that you have chosen the right one. If you haven’t, it will let you know. Fool proof!
The rotary blade can be used for other materials, such as paper, but once you use it, you will feel that it has been designed with fabric in mind. It is a dream when it comes to cutting fabric! On top of that, the machine is designed to adapt and control both the blade direction and the cut force according to the fabric selected. This not only means that it can cut many more materials than ever before but that the cuts that it makes are much cleaner and more precise as well.
As if all of those factors aren’t enough on their own, the Cricut Maker’s value to sewists isn’t simply as a cutting machine. Cricut has teamed up with Simplicity and Riley Blake Designs to provide over 200 patterns and quilting kits that can be used with the Cricut Design Space. Or if you have your own pattern, you can simply upload it into the design space and use it instead. This machine will take your patterns and divide them up on the cutting mats as efficiently as possible for far less wasting of fabric. Easy!
And finally, you can even purchase an optional washable fabric pen made for use with this system. Add it to your Cricut Maker and it will draw on just the right seam allowances for you. It can even number your pattern pieces!
That’s a pretty incredible addition to any sewing room, don’t you think? How would the Cricut Maker make your crafting life better?
