A couple of years ago, I started “dabbling” in using my Silhouette Cameo to cut stencils for painting on fabric. And along that process, I “met” (on the phone & online) Shelly Stokes. Shelly is the owner of Cedar Canyon Textiles – -and she does some absolutely breathtaking things with Fabric, Texture & Paint! Visit her website to take a look at some of the amazing things that she does! At that time, I introduced Shelly to the Silhouette Cameo & she has really taken off with it! I was so impressed that I invited her to be an instructor at the most recent All Things Silhouette Conference — so that she could share her methods with the attendees. While I just couldn’t make it into her class (or any other class, for that matter), I heard such rave reviews about the class & loved seeing the hands on project that the attendees completed. (And of my awesome friends made one for me!)
Shelly’s method for cutting “Renegade” stencils from vinyl is very cool & we are looking forward to having Shelly join us again in June to share her stenciling class, as well as a NEW Design class. But, June is several months away — or maybe you just won’t be able to join us in Peachtree City — so I wanted to share with you her online course – “Silhouette for Fabric Art.”
Silhouette for Fabric Art Begins January 16
So, what makes Shelly’s course unique? Well, let’s just say that she lives in a different world & her course is completely geared for quilters, sewers & art lovers who work with fabric. No paper crafting, no rhinestones, no specialty vinyl — but a deep dive into the Silhouette software & cutting as it applies to the fabric world. (However, just so you know — this does NOT include Machine Embroidery appliqué!) Now, I’ll be totally honest with you. I signed up for Shelly’s course last year and didn’t make it all the way through. So… now that we’re back in our house and things are calming down, I’m joining the January session that starts next week. (And this time, I hope to make it all the way through!) However, the sections I did participate in were great & I’m looking forward to completing the course.
If you’re a quilter, sewer, or want to see how you can use your Silhouette Cameo with fabric, click over to Shelly’s course page for a look. The class starts next week, so you’ll want to get signed up right away. (Don’t worry about starting a few days late. The first lesson is a big overview, and you probably have most of the materials on hand.)
And here’s a special bonus! Use the code TERRIJ20 when you register to save $20 off the regular class. But hurry! That discount goes away on January 16th.
Just a reminder — Registration is open for the June 2017 All Things Silhouette Conference – -and filling up fast! We have so many new classes, instructors & vendors — join us in Peachtree City, GA this summer!
Until next time — Hugs,
