Happy New Year to everyone! Hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas & New Years Day! Our Christmas was celebrated with our daughters & their families — so it was awesome! A little hectic with 6 adults, 6 dogs, and 3 little ones in the house (2 of which are under 6 months old) — but it was the most wonderful kind of hectic! I love every minute of it!
I love New Years – -its a time to start fresh – look forward & plan! (I even ordered a new “Life Planner” to attempt to keep me organized!) As I look forward into 2015, I wanted to share with you some awesome upcoming events from Terri Johnson Creates!
First – -my new Craftsy class – “Embroidering Monograms by Machine” will launch next week! I flew to Denver in September to record this class & had a fabulous time with the folks at Craftsy! So, I’ve been anxiously awaiting this launch & now its here! I will have more details for you next week — along with a chance to win a FREE Class! One of the most exciting things about this class, is that you will receive a FREE download of a full Monogram font — which was digitized from one of Laura Worthington’s fonts – Adorn! You are going to love it! (Its the one in the top picture on the cocktail napkins!!!)
If you aren’t familiar with Craftsy — let me share a few awesome things that I’ve discovered about this online education platform!
- With a Craftsy online class you can take it as many times as you want, whenever you want and access never expires.
- Craftsy’s platform enables you to take virtual notes while watching a class.
- HD quality video and audio make it easy to see exactly how the instructor is creating the craft, with close-ups of the different steps.
- Instructors and other students will answer your questions and give feedback.
So, check out Craftsy for some awesome classes on a huge variety of topics! But my class won’t be available until next week — so stay tuned!
NEXT – New Silhouette 2.0 retreat is scheduled for April 10-12 in Peachtree City, outside Atlanta!
Our February Silhouette 2.0 Retreat in Richmond is full, with now taking a waiting list — and so many of you requested another event – -so you’ve got it! We will repeat this retreat April 10-12 in Georgia — Click here for more information & to register! But don’t delay — we’ve had soooo many sign ups over the last few days — just from my Facebook post!
New Store Silhouette Retreat in Lockport, NY! I have just confirmed dates for a Silhouette retreat at Marie’s Sewing Center in Lockport, NY — for May 15-17. This will be a 3 day event — with the first day as an Overview of Silhouette & the Silhouette Studio software. The next 2 days will be hands on projects – covering cutting vinyl, fabric appliqués, glass etching and so much more! Details (in terms of price and location) are still being worked out – -but if you live in that area, you want to mark your calendar & check it out!
More Silhouette & Embroidery events are in the works! However, details aren’t nailed down yet — so stay tuned for more information for upcoming events & projects in 2015! I’m so excited about 2015 — and what God has in store!!! I’m really looking forward to more opportunities to share with all of you — in a wide variety of formats! I know that many of you aren’t able to travel & attend retreats — so we are working on a way to bring some of these projects to you!
Again — Happy New Year! I’m hoping and praying for God’s richest blessing on all of you — as we enter into a brand new year! Its full of possibilities — so let’s get started creating! I’d like to challenge you to learn at least one new thing this year! I’ve already started to learn crochet! (I’m taking the Craftsy Crochet classes!! Its awesome!) — so when I finish a project, I’ll post one to show you!
Happy New Year! Terri
