Silhouette Instructor Licensing, June 5-7, 2020

The Silhouette Instructor Licensing is probably the most requested event that we offer.   Each session, we only take 40 attendees, in order to keep the event more personal and have a chance to get to know each individual.   So, needless to say — it fills up fast.    I posted this even online 2 days ago — and we are already 50% full.  So that means only 20 spaces remaining.  This is the only Instructor Licensing that I {Read More}

Organizing & Viewing Your Fonts in Silhouette Studio

With the recent 50% off fonts sale in the Silhouette Design Store, you can believe that I stocked up on fonts!!   I love having all the different options, and the different looks that you can achieve just by using fonts.   But sometimes, it’s hard to sort through them all & decide which one to use.   The Text Style Panel in Studio lists the fonts alphabetically.   It is also difficult to tell what the font will look {Read More}
