Spent this morning with a friend helping her set up her "Big Kick". She is a fabric crafter and bought it so she could use it to make felted wool applique flowers. I helped her experiment how to arrange the sandwich to get the dies to work.
My friend is HUGE into grunge so she bought almost all of the Tim Holz dies. I was surprised to see that the Tim Holz "magnetic dies" don't work in her BK (I mean I did get it to run through but only after jamming a school phone list to shim it up. Why do you suppose he made his dies like that? The Time Holz dies sponsored by Sizzix work fine. Is it a deliberate attempt to get people to buy his "vagabond?" I gotta say, I don't think I'd buy any of his magnetic dies after this morning.
I can't wait to see the quilt that she makes with her Sizzix machine.
