Crossover II Review. Learn the pros and cons of this fabric and paper cutting system from Crafter’s Edge. Affiliate links included.
I was flattered to be given the opportunity to review the Crossover II, a fabric and paper cutting machine made by Crafter’s Edge. It was a blast trying out this fabulous machine, and I made a short video to show you how it performs.
I tested out the Crossover II using paper dies, fabric dies, and steel dies. The textiles I used for my review were paper, thin cotton fabric, canvas fabric, fabric with fusible webbing, and felt in my Crossover II review. I also included some finished projects to give you an idea of what you can do with the machine.
Pros and Cons of the Crossover II
- Small footprint. The cutting system is easy to open and close so it won’t take up a lot of storage space.
- It’s in my favorite color! I love that it’s not a boring neutral hue.
- Handle for ease of movement. Tote it from one area to another or to workshops and classes.
- No more shims! Adjust the pressure by simply spinning a dial!
- Larger cutting mat than other machines.
- Cuts fabric cleanly, even with paper dies.
- Can accommodate multiple dies, from paper dies to steel rule dies, thanks to the adjustable rollers.
- Cuts multiple pieces of fabric at one time.
- Handle turns smoothly and easily.
- Heavy machine (equivalent to other die cutting machines)
- Need to rely on the instruction manual heavily at first until you learn all the different pressure settings for various textiles.
Overall, I am extremely impressed with the Crossover II, and it’s going to be my “go to” die cutting machine. I love that it stores so easily and has a small footprint so it won’t take up a lot of my limited counter space. I’m thrilled that I won’t ever have to mess around with shims again, trying to figure out how to make a die work with my machine. The dial system is very easy to learn and to use. I highly recommend the Crossover II from Crafter’s Edge!
I was sent the Crossover II at no cost in exchange for my honest review and have not been compensated monetarily for this review.
