Our First Instructor Licensing

We just completed our very first Terri Johnson Creates Instructor Licensing, September 23-25,  & it was amazing!   There were 40 awesome ladies who assembled from all over — from Virginia & Maryland to California, Florida to Montana, Texas to Massachusetts – & even as far away as Sweden!! – for 3 full days of learning, inspiration & fun.  Each morning, I shared the essentials for starting a business teaching Silhouette classes — both in retail stores, in homes, hotels or a wide variety of venues.


We discussed topics such as the Business of Teaching, “Getting Professional Help”, Teacher Agreements, Hotel Contracts & BEOs, Copyright, and so many more things pertaining to having a Silhouette Instructor business!    The attendees shared tips & tricks that have worked for them in their experiences, as well.  Then after a delicious lunch, we launched right into reviewing the Licensed curriculum, where I shared techniques & teaching tips to help make their classes successful.  The afternoons were rounded out with creating the projects on their Silhouette Cameo & lots of fun & laughter!


Some of the projects that are included in the Licensing Curriculum are Print & Cut Heat Transfer; Screen Printing; Knock Out Technique with Glitter HTV; Printable Vinyl; 3 Layer Monograms; Cutting Fabric, Foil  & so much more!


Saturday evening was a special dinner at the home of one of my dear friends, Toni Rollison — with a beautiful view of the Potomac River!  It was a delightful, relaxing evening that everyone thoroughly enjoyed!


Now, each of these ladies are ready to begin teaching & sharing Silhouette projects and classes — not only in their own area — but many are willing to travel and teach!  Not to mention that each of them left the event with 39 new friends!  It was a wonderful 3 days of learning, sharing & inspiration.  If you are interested in having them one of them conduct a class or retreat in your area, please email me at terrijohnsoncreates@gmail.com      I would be happy to connect you with one of the Licensed Instructors nearest to you!

I also want to give a big shout out to so many of our Sponsors who supported this event!  Expressions Vinyl, Therm-o-Web, Spikers,  All About Blanks and Terial Magic!!  You all helped to make this Licensing weekend even more amazing!

If you have been thinking about teaching Silhouette classes, holding retreats, or even just one-on-one tutorials, then check out the Terri Johnson Creates Instructor Licensing.  Our next 3 day retreat is March 17-19, 2017 — in Peachtree City, GA.  We only have about 10 spaces remaining for this event — so don’t delay!  Here are a few comments from the evaluations — “This class was more than I expected!  The curriculum was jam packed full of information”.  “I loved getting samples of agreements and contact info for supplies.  I took a lot of notes on what content & concepts each project could highlight”  “The Business topics discussed covered everything I had a question about.”

We would love to have you join us at our next Instructor Licensing!  Until next time –

    Fantastic class and WONDERFUL group of ladies, giving us all a strong start to take our love of teaching, combined with a love of crafting (with our Silhouette Cameos of course!) Can’t wait to conduct my first class and share!

  3. This was a weekend filled with much information and we still had fun! We went home with completed class samples, course materials, resource lists, contract samples, and so much more. I made many friends who continue to help me with wonderful suggestions and good advice through the closed Facebook group. I am so grateful to have this terrific opportunity from Terri Johnson. Thanks!
