New product sneak peek!

Would you believe me if I told you I made this patchwork pillow without using any rulers or a rotary cutter?! Well, it’s true! Precision cut patchwork pieces = perfectly matching points! All done with a new {amazing} machine that’s about to hit the market.

Brother International Corporation™ is introducing the first home and hobby cutting machine with a built-in scanner!  It’s called the ScanNCut. 

I’ve been playing around with the ScanNCut for a bit and I have to say I am very impressed with what it can do. I mean, really, it cut out every single patchwork piece I used to create this pillow to the perfect size. No rulers. No rotary cutter. No Scissors. Impressive.

What are your initial reactions to this machine? Curious about it?

    How cool is that! When we think there is nothing new in sewing something like this comes along. Thanks for the info, sounds like a great present to ask Santa for!

    hmm…. for me personally , no , I don’t think I’d be interested in owning that.

    sounds nice for patchwork products with a lot of small or smaller pieces. But the cost will be the key issue. So far, this type of machine have been priced too high for me. But if I owned one, I think I would do more pieced projects with the cutting step done more easily. So I’ll watch the price.

    I love it and your pillow, but price with dictate whether I love it that much. What is the fabric you used on the pillow?

    So if I am understanding you correctly this machine will cut the fabric without the Dies that the other machines use and make you invest in? If that’s correct it would be worth taking a deeper look at…..way to go Brother!

    How much different than the Slice is it?

    sounds good. Hope it does not require purchase of dies or cartridges or other technical term for costly pieces.

    Don’t think it is something I would use. I enjoy every aspect of making a quilt, even though sometimes I do use pre-cuts.

    It seems very similar to a cricket. Do you know what the approximate price is and if it will cut paper?
