Mary and I spent about 5 hours learning this Scan and Cut machine. I found a quilt that has many small pieces to cut and applique and thought that if we conquered that, we’d be well on our way to mastering this machine. I was correct!. And so far, we have learned much, but not conquered the machine. We have to remember all the steps to be able to repeat them. We managed to get a few pieces cut out. The idea is to scan in a pattern or several and the machine will cut them out. Tomorrow, I’ll try and cut a few more out. The instructions had lots of missing bits of knowledge.
