I was wondering what the big difference was. That makes a lot of sense. I thought Silhouette had lost their minds releasing a smaller Silhouette when they had the SD that was only recently retired.
That will be a nice machine for those who go to crops or do not want to store a larger machine. I loved my SD and still be using her. My DH accidentally broke it. I bought the Cameo and I have yet to use anything 12x12. I cut everything at letter size. I was always one of the first who said if Silhouette released a 12x12 I would buy it. They did, I bought it and don't use that size, lol.
