Learn to Use your Scan n Cut

Were you wowed by a Scan n Cut demo but are a little nervous to get started? Or maybe you just know there is more you could be doing with your Scan n Cut? We’ve got a class for you!

Jennifer has created a five session class covering a range of the Scan n Cut features. Each session will build on previous knowledge so you become an expert on the Scan n Cut and Canvas Workspace. It’s easier to remember what different features do and why you would want to use them when making an actual project, so Jennifer has curated a collection of projects across a range of crafts. You’ll create beautiful things while learning all your machine can do. We hope you’ll love all the projects but if some of them are not your style or interest, please remember you’re learning the techniques! Once you have these valuable skills you’ll be able to apply them to future projects that you dream up.

The materials you need to create each project are included in the kit fee. These classes are your opportunity to try out lots of different techniques and materials to see what you like. No need to buy an entire roll of foil if that’s not your cup of tea. We’ll have a sample for you to use in class. But if you love the fusible web we’re testing out, we can show you how to purchase more.

You will need to bring your Scan n Cut to class each session as well as any Scan n Cut consumables (mats, blades, etc.) and some basic crafting supplies. A supply list will be provided each session so you know what to bring. Some sessions we will be using Canvas Workspace, Brothers free online software for editing and creating cutting files. For these sessions you will need to bring a laptop (recommended) or tablet so you can get hands on practice.

Enrolling in Class
The Scan n Cut class is only open to those with a machine from the DX series (machines with an auto blade). The required kit fee of $175 will include all the materials for each project and a workbook to walk you through each lesson. There is no class fee if your Scan n Cut was purchased at Rae-Bon Sew & Quilt Shop. The class fee is $150 for machines purchased elsewhere (kit purchase also required). Please stop in or give us a call to register for Learn to Use Your Scan n Cut.
