I started practicing yoga in a studio as part of my recovery from spine surgery 6yrs ago and it has helped me in so many ways! The last few month have been so hard schedule wise that was just talking with my Husband about switching to practice at home instead so that I can fit it into my day...this would be SO perfect to help with that!!

Glad you liked it! USB #4 is rather new so it might not be in stock everywhere you'd normally find Brother products...but you can look on the Brother site scanncut.com and see where they are sold.

Hi Marcela, Yes, you can add whatever images &/or svg files to your mat and then select them and arrange them however you want to on the mat and then cut them out. I like to use ScanNCutCanvas to do things like that since it's easier to see everything is laid out how you want it. Happy cutting!
