Of course I jumped at the opportunity - what an honor - and the first weekend in November, after months of preparations, logistics and hard work, it all came together with an all star team of presenters (Lori Whitlock, Terri Johnson, Amy Robison, Jeana Goodwin, Cindy Eckhoff, Christine Schinagl, Kendall Ehat of Silhouette America, Lisa Potts from The Rhinestone World, Mandy Beyelor for Expressions Vinyl) plus fabulous vendors, and more than 400 Silhouette users (of all levels and abilities).
I was just truly honored to be among them!
Now let me just say I didn't know this is what 200+ people looked like in a standing-room-only amphitheater. Holy moly!! I presented for a total of 5+ hours (4 sessions, 2 presentations) over the weekend. It was overwhelming at times, but so so fun! And I certainly hope everyone that walked out of that room had something click or learned something new.
I always joke - if only my kids cared this much about what I had to say...that they would pull up a chair to use the edge of the stage as a table. :)

The thing is - I'm happy to do it! I get so much enjoyment out of my Silhouette that I want to share that with everyone I can - I want you all to be successful in making and creating whatever it is that drove you to get the machine in the first place.
Sure Silhouette School is now my business, it's evolved into that quickly over the last 22 months, but it never feels like 'work.' I love what I do so much and I love interacting with my readers on the blog and all my social media platforms and I was thrilled to take it to a new level this weekend and meet 400 of you in person!! So for that - I thank you!
So now the question I keep getting is where will I be speaking next? I can tell you this....I'm honestly not sure what this afternoon will bring so it's hard to give an accurate answer about the months ahead.
