Find a Licensed Silhouette Instructor



What is a Licensed Silhouette Instructor?  

These groups of ladies shown above all attended a Licensing event presented by Terri Johnson Creates.  They are certified to teach a wide variety of my class topics & are excellent resources for you to learn about your Silhouette machines!!  If you are interested in classes. retreats, or even One-on-One tutoring, please contact one of these awesome Instructors!    Please note that while they may not be exactly in your area, many of them are willing to travel – and have websites & blogs!  Instructors are listed Alphabetically, by state — so scroll to find  your state.  

“As the popularity of Silhouette machines continues to grow, more and more people feel the need for ‘hands-on’ help in learning to get the most from their machines. In recognizing and understanding the need for further hands-on training, Terri Johnson has developed the Terri Johnson Creates Instructor Licensing Program. This program provides Instructor Licensees the tools and curriculum needed to return to their home areas and provide lessons & events throughout the country. Terri Johnson Creates Instructor Licensing Program is an independent program not audited by Silhouette America, which is created & taught by Terri Johnson Creates. Silhouette America supports Terri Johnson Creates through sponsorship and products, and encourages her efforts to promote and provide training solutions through her independent Instructor Licensing Program.”
