Our Fiber Frenzy group met this week to play with some cutting equipment. I've seen both of these machines in use previously, but being old school never gave much thought of owning either. But as they say, timing is everything.
In the past I've mentioned my nagging shoulder issue. So after another cortisone injection & a frank discussion with my doc....I can no longer ignore it for much longer if I want to avoid more damage requiring rotary cuff surgery and an unacceptable (to me) recovery period.
So......I need to reduce the stress on my joints.....I'm hoping Santa is reading this.....
Kathie gave an in-depth demo of her Brother Scan 'n cut machine. Here's an overview of the function that would most benefit ME to own one.
Judy shared her Accuquilt die cut machine. In preparation for a largish quilt I'm planning.....and with stacking help my pals, 5 layers each packet were cut into about 300 - 2.5" x 4.5" rectangles.A view of the machine, the carrier that covers the foam die cut plate.
I don't do enough patchwork to justify this tool, so I'm really grateful for the generosity of Judy and my fellow Fiber Frenzy friends. This would have probably taken me two days and way too much stress on my shoulder if cut by hand.
