I am new to the blog. Scanned through a few and found them very interesting. I’ll go back and check some out.

Patti Pearl

My favorite blog was the one about making the Christmas Tree Collage. I haven’t made one yet, but it is on my to do list.

Vicki Smith

My favorite is the continuous binding. Every time I go to make cut my binding I need a refresher

Kim Cierpik-Gold

I think my favorite blog is How to Make Printable Fabric. Such a great idea especially for making fabric for kids’ items. I also love the How To’s.

Kim Eagan

The Little Miss Muffet is Making a Square Tuffet was one of my favorites. I had seen many round Tuffets, but not a square one. Would make a great gift for my great nieces.

Judy Marketos

I really appreciate your blogs with tutorials and info on the scan n cut. There are so few classes, especially at the Littleton store, and it is hard to find clear, usable information and guidance. I also enjoy your “how to make” blogs, such as the oil cloth placemats. Thanks so much!!!

Birdie Cade

Christmas tree word collage was my favorite blog. Very nice Christmas gift!


The continuous was my favorite. I also enjoyed the Scan n Cut since I now have the DX.

Jackie Noe

For me any blog that mentions Scan and Cut is my favorite. Every year, I focus on one thing to learn. Last year it was my Pfaff Icon, this year it is my Scan and Cut. I have really enjoyed reading your blogs about what this machine can do and I don’t have the new one. I have the 650W and it sat in the case for three years before I could be comfortable with it. Thank you for doing this for us.
