ScanNCut Fabric Cutting Workshop

Bring your ScanNCut SDX125, SDX225 or Disney ScanNCut DX Innov-is to this hands-on workshop to learn the basics of cutting fabric on your machine. Skills to be included will be mat preparation (attaching a High Tack Adhesive Support Sheet), cutting fabric with fusible backing, (such as Steam a Seam or Heat and Bond light), and with no adhesive backing. Bring a standard cutting mat and other machine accessories and fabric (prepare 2 to 3 fabrics with fusible backing prior to workshop) to be cut. It would be beneficial if you know the basics of your machine, have it registered and running latest version. Use of the Canvas Workspace to expand your creative possibilities will also be covered. Another session will be held at a later date for any other version of the ScanNCut.
