Fabric Cutters and Cutting Machines
I often get questions about Fabric Cutters and Cutting Machines, so I thought it would be interesting to get a discussion started in the Rugmaking Forum to help readers learn about the different options available and how well they work for different applications. Cutting Machines can be expensive, so itís helpful to learn from someoneís personal experience. What do you like or dislike? What kinds of materials are you cutting? If you have used more than one, which one do you prefer? Do you have questions about a specific type or brand of cutter?
To participate in the online discussion, this site has a free community forum all about Rugmaking located here -
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
