Two Silhouette Retreats This Fall

Happy Monday — and I hope that everyone had an awesome Father’s Day — no matter how you celebrated!  My Dad lives in Florida (and I’m in Virginia) — so I had the pleasure of chatting with him on the phone!  It always makes me miss him!  And last night, one of my daughters, son in laws & grandson came over & we made steak dinner on the grill for the “dads” — so it was a nice day!  Hope yours was too.

This morning, I wanted to send out to you that I am holding two retreats this Fall, to learn (or learn more) about your Silhouette Cameo!  One will be in Glen Allen, Virginia (really Richmond), November 15-17 at the picturesque Wyndham Virginia Crossings;  and the other in Peachtree City, GA (really Atlanta), October 25-27 at the beautiful Wyndham Peachtree City Conference Center.   These will be limited in size for that hands on, personal attention.  We will cover a wide variety of techniques on the Silhouette & you will complete all of your projects in class!!  Each retreat will cost $349, which includes your class instruction, all kits needed for projects, ; comprehensive tutorial notebook with CDs;  breakfast & lunch both Saturday & Sunday; afternoon breaks all 3 days; goodie basket & more!!

These retreats are a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself & learn more about your Silhouette Cameo.  The projects will cover all types of media to cut — paper, vinyl, heat transfer vinyl; fabric (with machine embroidery applique), glass etching & more!  Everyone who has attended these retreats previously have loved them & come away feeling so much more confident on their Cameo — Not to mention having a ton of fun & making new friends.

Please don’t delay in registering, as the Virginia retreat only has 10 spaces left, and the Atlanta one is filling up fast.     Let me know if you have any questions!  If you’d like a registration form, email me at  Payments can be made in 3 installments both by PayPal, Credit Card or check!  Hope you can join us!

    I am looking for an in-person class/workshop/seminar/etc in the Houston or even Dallas/Austin/etc.area. I am having trouble learning my cameo and would really appreciate an in-person class! On a personal note, would anyone living in the Houston, Texas(or Dallas, Austin, San Antonio areas) be interested in sitting down with me to help me understand how to work this Cameo? I will pay for your time.
