Crafter Review:

We sent the fabulous Fabmatic to the lovely Louise Dunbar to have a play with, and here’s what she had to say about it…

“The Fabmatic machine is a die cutting essential.  With its large mouth and A4 plates, I’ve not found a die in my stash it won’t cut!

I’ve cut a range of materials with it, including grey board, card, paper, fabric, and cardboard with just 1 pass through the machine.

The easy-to-follow instructions show you exactly what plate combinations you need for each type of die or embossing folder you have, but don’t worry if you get it wrong, the machine will reject the plates if not right, meaning that you are never going to damage the machine by forcing something through.

It’s so easy to get started, simply unpack the box, plug in and go!!

The possibilities are as endless as your imagination – in a word, the Fabmatic machine is FAB!!”
