I have an Epic Six at home, but have bursitis in my right arm and don't want to aggravate it.

I didn't know about the vagabond. It seems like electric Epic six.....

I guess I thought that all the electrical ones were more like the cricut or needed a laptop connected to them.

So, I might ask for one for my Bday next week.

How does the vagabond stack up? What is comparable?

I like the Epic 6 but the mechanical strength needed is difficult with my arm.

Thanks,
Cathy

Similar in functionaliy to my electronic Big Shot which they no longer make.
I love the electronic Big Shot and find myself using my dies so much more that with a manual manchine. HTH

And I got a nice Art box with magnetic pages to store my nestabilties!

It was a Memory Box class. We made 3 cards, using the baby stroller, cloud dies, a circle filigree die, a honey bees, and an old-fashioned bike.

The honey bees were a pain in the neck. The little birds, however were very cute.

I got a vagabond for my birthday last year and I love it, it cuts thicker materials with no problem and it looks cute on my desk too, I have pretty much all Sizzix machines and that one is my favorite, go for it!!

Thanks for the feedback,

I like that it folds up and I only have a small space for my scrapping!
