I watched this awhile back and haven't had a chance to try it. It doesn't talk about thicker fabric, but I'm pretty sure it tells you what you need on the back. I haven't seen it in awhile and I didn't want to watch all 9 minutes of it again. I hope this answers at least some of your questions. Happy cutting!

I was able to cut fabric with my regular blades. I just used heat and bond lite for a stabilizer. It would cut fine, just use some scraps though to play with your pressure and speed and blade depth.

ETA: you may want to try 3/3/3...I think that's what mine was set at. Usually kiss cuts are ok because you can punch out the paper. But fabric you want to cut all the way through, but not scarring your mat. HTH
