Scan N Cut Techniques Class



Do you feel intimated by your digital cutter?  You will soon become confident in your ability to use your digital cutter and be ready to experience all it has to offer….cutting fabric, embossing, creating stencils (glass etching), creating your own stamps and even stickers. And let’s not forget the world of vinyl - heat transfer vinyl (T shirts, garden flags, tote bags, pillows), removal vinyl (wall decorations), permanent vinyl (car window decals, signs, ornaments….) And did I mention bling?  Rhinestones!!!

Please be sure you have the latest update loaded on your cutter, when applicable.  Brother Scan N Cut owners, check for updates here.

Alternatively, a student may pre-register to rent a sewing machine (when avail;able) for creative classes at a rental rate of $15 per class session.  Students who experiences great difficulty with their sewing machine during class may need to rent a machine.
