All Things Silhouette Conference: Silhouette School Announced as Keynote Speaker

I promised you all big news and I’m gonna deliver! At least I think it’s pretty exciting and I certainly hope you all do too…especially since I have been keeping this secret for months and I’m seriously about.to.burst. I can barely contain my excitement over the first of its kind Silhouette Conference!
All Things Silhouette Conference 2015, Melissa Viscount, Silhouette School
AND AND AND yours truly has been invited as the keynote speaker.   What does that mean? That means I get to meet all of you and I’ll be doing four hour-long live teaching sessions, signing books, answering your questions and giving all of you great big hugs!

Since I know you’re dying for details on the conference, I have them too…

First of all you have to know the All Things Silhouette Conference is being organized by Terri Johnson of Terri Johnson Creates.  Terri is a master Silhouette user and teacher with a specialization in fabric and sewing. She’s been has holding smaller (top notch) Silhouette retreats around the country for years. (She just got back from the Silhouette Symposium in Hawaii and immediately turned around and traveled to Buffalo for a Silhouette retreat). I told you she’s Ms. All Things Silhouette. 

That’s why when Terri approached me several months ago with the idea of putting on a large scale Silhouette conference I instantly said YES! What could be better than bringing 400 Silhouette enthusiasts together for a weekend-long conference about everything Silhouette?  Not much, I know!

The All Thing Silhouette Conference will be held at the Wyndham Peachtree City Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia the weekend of November 7 and 8, 2015.  They have a wonderful auditorium-style room where I’ll be teaching interactively with all of you!  There will also be smaller workshops set up and put on by experts in the field.  Topics include:
  • Heat Transfer Vinyl
  • Rhinestones
  • Embroidery
  • Glass Etching
  • In's and Outs of Silhouette Studio
  • Designer Edition
  • Tracing
And there's more! There will also be a vendor shopping hall where you can shop from and meet with some of your favorite retailers.  Silhouette America (squealing yet???), Expressions Vinyl (I can’t love them more!), blank suppliers (yes, please!) and more will be there!  Plus, I'll be selling and signing books (Already have one? Bring it!!).   I can keep name dropping but I think that’s enough to peak your interest for now. More vendors and workshop teachers and the jam-packed class schedule will be announced in the coming month.

I should also point out - the first group of sponsors being announcing for the All Things Silhouette Conference are Silhouette America, Expressions Vinyl, and All About Blanks!  Yup, we go big! 

Due to the size of the conference space we have to limit attendance to 400 Silhouette enthusiasts and for those who are as excited as I am - you can buy your ticket starting today! The early bird price is $199 for the two-day conference which includes breakfast, lunch, and all-day snacks and drinks plus an amazing swag bag and a hug from me!  A block of discounted rooms is also being held, but hasn't been released yet - so keep an eye out.  The price will go up after July 18 so if you know you want to secure a spot - be sure to grab your ticket asap!!!
