Announcing………….. Silhouette Instructor Licensing!!!!

I could not be more excited to announce my brand new Silhouette Instructor Licensing event!!**   Each week, I receive requests from all over the country to come to different areas to teach people how to use their Silhouette machines.   Silhouette users across the country want hands on instruction with their machines!  Every retreat or Conference that I have held has been sold out, usually with a waiting list.   But, it is virtually impossible for me to visit all of those areas — so the idea of Silhouette Instructor Licensing** was born!    This is an opportunity for you to improve your Silhouette skills & then learn how you can share that with others in a fun & profitable environment!  This is being held right here in my back yard — Woodbridge, VA — just outside of Washington DC – in a brand new Hilton Garden Inn.

Teacher Licensing

What is Instructor Licensing?  This is a 3 day retreat style event, where you come together with a limited group of other passionate Silhouette users.  During these 3 days, you will increase your Silhouette skills, through hands on, classroom instruction — and then learn how you can effectively share that knowledge with others!  You will receive tips and tools about how to host Silhouette Clubs and Retreats.   These are things that I have learned through years of hosting events — what worked & what didn’t; best type of venue; how to set up your classroom; how to advertise & promote your events; resources for purchasing supplies & so much more!  This Licensing will show you how you can turn your enthusiasm & love for Silhouette into a profitable event business!

What will I receive when I enroll?  Each licensing retreat features 12 Silhouette projects.  Attendees will receive the a complete kit of materials to complete these projects, along with the instructions – not only on how to complete the project, but how to teach it as well!   (While you probably won’t complete all of the projects in the weekend, you will have everything you need to do so at home!)  These projects are the perfect class samples to use for your events!  You will also receive a CD with cut files, forms, class supply lists & the handouts for the class.   As a Terri Johnson Licensee,  you will have the license to reproduce these handouts & class instructions for any class that you might teach!  This licensing also gives you permission to create these projects & sell them, if you would like!   Only students with this license can sell or teach these projects.

Your Licensing includes membership in a private Facebook group, where I will be active — and you can share ideas with other instructors, ask questions & post your projects.  I will also be offering a referral service – when people contact me about teaching – I will give them your contact information if they are in your area!  And each Licensee will receive a special logo to be used for your website, business cards, or any advertising you might do.   In the future, there will be opportunities to add additional projects to your portfolio – both online & in person.    We also are putting together a fabulous “goodie bag” of products from our recommended vendors!   Most of your meals for the 3 days are included –  breakfast*, lunch and snacks each day — and one fabulous dinner!  (*Breakfast is included if you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn).   And above all — Fun & new Friends!  Spending 3 days with people who share the same passion that you do!!  What could be better?

This event is limited  so that you can receive personal attention – so don’t delay in registering!!  Click on this link to be taken to the registration page!   I anticipate this event will sell out quickly!  September is a beautiful time in Washington, DC — so you could even add on a few days for sightseeing, if you were so inclined!  This event is sold out as of 3/31/16.  Please subscribe to the blog to receive notification of future events – -as we are in the process of planning more!  

Hotel rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn are available at a discounted rate for this event — Book your room here!


I am really excited about this event & hope that you can join me for 3 fun filled days of learning, creating, & fellowship and fun!  And I’m looking forward to seeing how these Licensees will go forward & begin or enhance their own business!!   If you have any questions, email me at!!   If you are all in — register today!


**This Licensing is an independent retreat presented by Terri Johnson Creates, and is not officially affiliated with Silhouette America.

  1. Hello Terri,

    How much experience do you need to attend the retreat?

    • Beth — You certainly don’t need to be an “expert” — but it is helpful to be at least comfortable with the basic operations of the machine & software. We will have training time to help everyone with whatever areas they feel lacking. That’s a big part of the event — so you have confidence! Hope you can join us! Terri

  2. Terri is there any possible payment plan for this?

  3. Lisa Romans says
