Spark Lab Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do we have a Cricut? We have a Cricut Maker 3 for use in the Spark Lab and a Cricuit Air available to check out through the Spark Lab Library of Things. You can check the availability here. Never used a Cricut before? There are great tutorials on YouTube to learn.
