How to Choose a Crafting Machine

Crafting is something I never thought I’d be able to get into. However, my kids are getting older and it is something that I really wanted to check out. It took me a while to decide which crafting machine I would choose, but I went ahead with it. I have tried to simplify the process of choosing a crafting machine.

Study the various machines

I can tell you that it’s much easier to choose a crafting machine when you know a little about each machine. Take the time to study up on each one! After I did this, I felt much better about my decision.

Compare the prices

Unless you’re rolling in the dough, money always plays a factor in what kind of crafting machine you will buy. Of course, you want quality, but money does usually rule over all other factors. Do a side by side comparison of the prices of the crafting machines you want.

Make sure your PC is compatible

If you have never bought a crafting machine before, you probably didn’t think about it being compatible with your PC. Some operating systems don’t actually work with all crafting machines. You should be able to tell which operating systems they work with, right on the crafting machine’s website.

Be willing to learn new things

When I got my Cricut in the mail, it was something I had to learn more about. One thing I will say is you have to be willing to learn new things when it comes to a crafting machine. Feeding the material into the machine is an important part of the crafting machine. The Cricut is very quiet in how it cuts. This may be an aspect you consider before purchasing your next crafting machine.

Choosing the right crafting machine, really comes down to your preferences. The Cricuit Explore Machine is a crafting machine that really knows its stuff. It’s quiet, but can cut anything you can imagine. It can use any font that’s on your computer. I thought the design software was pretty easy to understand, it just took me a bit to get it.

Imagine the possibilities when you can cut into things like vinyl and thin wood. The possibilities are endless. I look forward to showing you some of the amazing crafts I made with my Cricut.

Do you have a Cricut? Have you made any cool crafts?
