Slice Review

Today I would love to talk about a great die cutting Machine from Slice Crafts..  "Slice". I run a lot of sewing/Quilting classes in my community and prefer to give my honest opinion to my students on machines (As you are aware I have done honest review on several machines in the past too) that could make life easy and speed up the applique/embellishment on the projects. So when I got my "Slice" I thought of giving it a try.



 Few things I like to see in any machine I use and I am sure everyone loves to see is the ease of using the machine quickly by following few steps when you get it out of the box without the hassle of reading through pages and pages. That is a big plus for me however there are instructions provided for someone who loves to read the manual before they use.

 The machine is light weight, portable and sturdy to carry with you to your quilting/sewing classes or on trips with you.

 I love the Hands Free Kit where you do not need to hold the machine while it cuts, embosses or draws.


Another product you may not want to miss to buy is  Invisicut which helps to cuts shapes/design on delicate fabric such silk, tulle, lace etc.
The Design cards have some amazing design  to make and use for appliques for quilts, baby items, home decor.I would love to have all of them they are so cute and have so many ideas and options of using them running in my mind just looking at them.

 The factor that may hold back some of you would be the price for the machine   retail price $149.99 and design cards retail price $49.99,  however I feel it is worth it.

PACKAGE INCLUDES: Slice™ Cordless Fabric Cutter, power cord, 3 replacement blades, blade adjustment wrench, 6” x 6” glass cutting mat, reposition-able adhesive, foam brush, 3 - 6” x 6” fusible web sheets, user manual, quick start guide, Applique Basics SD design card and design card booklet. Most shapes available in 1" to 4" in 1/2" increments.

 Also, if you keep looking on Slice Crafts website for sale here and Facebook page they post deals with great prices on their design cards and if lucky on their machine too.

So all in all I think this is a wonderful die cut machine to add to your craft room..you won't regret it. Also stay tuned we will have a project soon coming up in next few days on our blog here using this great machine.

 Also I am posting a link to video which has introduction to Slice Machine.

I have a Slice and I love it. I use it for embellishments for my greeting cards.

I use it to cut out letters and shapes and then I applique them onto baby onesies. Lot of my friends are having babies right now. And this is a cool, personal, one of a kind gift. I have requests in from expectant moms. They get exactly what they want, and I Feel good I can do something that thrills them. win-win!
