Over the last week, the Cricut Crew and Hobbycraft Artisans worked alongside each other at The Festival of Quilts. It was a fun-filled few days demonstrating the Cricut Maker 3 and rotary blade - a must-have for precision cutting fabric.
I love freelancing for Cricut UK at events like this. Although I am predominantly there to demonstrate how easy Cricut machines are to use, it's lovely to hear about what other creatives like to make and see their passion shine through. From Cricut owners to complete newbies, events like The Festival of Quilts allow us to further everybody's knowledge - and have fun at the same time!
Anyway, the reason I am here is to let you know of the show bundle offers that Hobbycraft were running specifically for the show itself. Due to supply chain issues, they are extending their offer and so I thought I'd let you know about it. Christmas is on the horizon, so perhaps you could put in a special request to Father Christmas!
It's important to note that I get NO financial kickback from this! I just love my machines and want to share a good deal when I see one!
Firstly, the Maker 3 (Cricut's top of the range digital cutting machine) currently has £30 off on Hobbycraft's website. Therefore it has gone from £399.00 to £369.00.
If you already have a Maker/Maker 3, then there is an awesome accessory bundle available to get you started with using fabric. I use mine for cutting applique letters and shapes, and for quilting.
Cricut Zen Easy Press Mini - RRP £54.00
Cricut Rotary Blade and Housing - RRP £50.00 (replacement blades are cheaper)
Cricut Pastel Tool Set - RRP £25.00
Cricut Brayer and Remover - RRP £18.00
Cricut Fabric Mat - RRP £8.00
Cricut Washable Fabric Pen - RRP £6.00
TOTAL RRP - £161.00
BUNDLE PRICE - £84.99
TOTAL SAVING - £76.01
See? Crazy reduction!
If you bought the Maker 3 while it is on offer and the (quilting) fabric bundle, then this is the bottom line.
TOTAL RRP - £560.00
BUNDLE PRICE - £453.99
TOTAL SAVING - £106.01
Like I said, I'm just sharing the deal as it's the best one I've seen Cricut offer with regards to fabric bundles. You can purchase the machine now and then use the 'email me when back in stock' link on Hobbycraft's website for the accessory bundle (quick link here - https://qrco.de/bdEi2v).
If you're looking for Cricut inspiration, then I worked alongside the following fabulous people who all know their stuff:

This event was a first for me in terms of working alongside the Hobbycraft Artisans who run Cricut workshops and run demos in store. It was lovely to collaborate with them and I have made new crafty friends for life.
