I have read its better to cut the fabric using a hot knife. Is this true?
Can I not just use good scissors, or do I have to do something to the edge of the fabric afterwards?

It is best to cut acrylics (like Sunbrella) with a hotknife. But if the raw edge will be concealed (folded under in a hem) it is acceptable to scissors cut.
