TGIF at the Shoppe!


Gypsy for the Cricut - Sunday, Dec. 11th - 12:30-3:30pm with Diane $15
Come and learn how to use your Gypsy! You'll learn the basics as well as advanced features of this wonderful accessory for your Cricut. The Gypsy is a powerful design tool that will help you make the most of all your cartridges.

What to Bring to Class: Your Gypsy and its power cord, cartridge link cable, link cable to Cricut, your Cricut machine, its power cord, mat and paper (any will do). Also, if you have never linked a cartridge to your Gypsy, bring one or two cartridges to link.

Prior to class, perform the following steps at home:
1) Check the version of your Gypsy software. Power on your Gypsy and then select the Wrench Icon (tool/settings). On the bottom left of the screen you should see Version 1.4 (0211:0231).

2) If this is not the version you see, then you must go to and download the Cricutsynch software to your computer. After its installed, link your Gypsy to your computer via the USB, turn the Gypsy on and from your computer, run the cricutsynch software, follow the on-screen instructions. Warning, this may take awhile, it may even feel like the synch stopped. Be patient, you don't have to watch it, just check on it every 15-30 minutes. If your synch goes quickly, don't fear, it just means you had less to update.

3) Link your Gypsy to your Cricut. You should have a cord like a USB that fits into the back of your Cricut and to the top of your Gypsy. Power both devices on your Cricut, may pull updates from your Gypsy, if this happens, just follow the instructions and be patient. If no updates occur, don't worry, your Cricut didn't need them!
