Note: the Curio will be available sometime in July 2015. We will have pre-order information very soon.
This is the DIY machine the crafting world has been waiting for! CraftDirect.com is proud to announce the upcoming release of the New Silhouette Curio system. I recently got back from a conference in Hawai'i that Silhouette America hosted and I gotta say, I am really excited about this product. They answered all my questions and did thorough demos (video coming soon). It's amazing what this machine can do:
- cuts - including deep cuts
- scores - make precise folds in your projects
- embosses - deep embossing potential
- sketches - I saw it draw on wood with a self-sharpening pencil with my own eyes!
- stipples - designs made of tiny dots
- etches - make designs on metal, etc.
It uses Silhouette Studio software and with a membership, you can get projects from their Design Store, just like with the classic Silhouette machines. The Curio is going to revolutionize the way we look at craft machines. We love innovation at CraftDirect, and we can't wait for this original invention.
