Have you all seen this? There are lots of other videos on the Brother site.

This looks awesome. I saw a demo a few weeks ago at a shop, and it cuts fabric and paper perfectly. draws on your seam allowances too. I see this as a cool tool for applique, and quilting.

Tonight I was cutting out pattern pieces for a little girl’s dress and a lot of them are small enough that I could have used this machine to do it for me.

I am intrigued.
I hope I linked these correctly.

I've read about the Scan n' Cut, and watched some of the You Tube videos. I'm hoping my local dealer brings one into the shop soon. Pacific International Quilt Festival comes into our San Francisco bay area in Oct. I'm hoping to go, and maybe Brother will have a vendor booth with this product.

I'm intrigued by the fact that it is so self contained and that it could be used for cutting your own drawn out designs, and especially fabric appliqués.

I would not buy one however until it has been out on the market for awhile.

Wow this sure looks interesting and easy for do it yourself applique patterns. I could put this to good use. I don't like the accucuts cos everyone is using the same shapes. But not so with this. I imagine it will be rather $$$ though.

It is not $180.00 That is the value of the extra stuff that one gets with the 550 model (blue)

I know my dealer will be selling the dealer only model (The 550) for $499.00.

The Amazon for sale model will be $399.00. No "extras package".

HI, I am going crazy! My dealer is having a demo for $10 which can be used in the price of the machine if I decide to buy the cut and scan at that time. I know the price and it sounds good. My problem is that I don't know if the Silhouette cameo is just as good for about $100 less. I like to make applique baby quilts and some in the hoop embroidery appliques, and I thought these machines would be a good idea. If I don't buy the Brother cut and scan I will be out $10 dollars, but then I have no idea if the other machine is just as good. The Brother machine has some nice quilting designs if I go that route. Also, if I buy at my dealer's store, I am sure if I have any questions, somebody there will be able to help me. Harriet

I know that $10is not a huge amount but 10 dollars to demo a product whose whole purpose to a retailer is to be in the store to sell - ticks me off a bit. You would think with a new and moderately expensive product demoing it is to be expected. If she was organizing an event ok. But just to demo a product she would carry as a retail item - I'd buy elsewhere.

Have you been to the website that is out there?

www.scanncut.com

There are at least a dozen videos that show how this is used. Also Crafty Gemini.com has a great video up too. That may help you decide.

Remember, this is a scanner too. You can scan photos and documents too even and save the data on a USB stick for use in your computer.

I would think you could get a demo at a dealer without having to pay.
