I'm not advocating one over the other, but the new Cricut does not require cartridges so is a bit more flexible than it used to be. You can make your own designs or use online "patterns" for free as well.

I agree with Jill Sodt - Silhouette's are way more flexible and cheaper in the long run. We also have some Cricut cartridges, but we are not purchasing new ones to add to our collection at this point.

If you do end up getting a Cricut , you can check out cartridges here at 
Plymouth Library. We have 90 to choose from.
