    I have had my Silhouette Cameo for 3 years. It sat in the box for 2 yrs because there were no instruction book! A friend finally showed me how to do a basic cut, but that was all she was able to show me. I purchased the Silhouette in order to cut material for applique's for embroidery. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and there are days using scissors just won't happen, but I enjoy my computerized embroidery machine. I can be creative without having to really manipulate my hands that much! So basically, the Silhouette has been just sitting there collecting dust until I found your great website school! I love you ebook and your school! Like everyone else I am finally able to have fun with my Silhouette machine, thanks to you and your great basic instructions! I give everyone I know your website. Your my hero and this has allowed me to be even more creative with a new grandchild. Thank you so much. Keep up the great work and know that your greatly appreciated.

  10. Hi Melissa, I was wondering if you aren't sending blogs via e-mail daily as you did in the past? I see your posts on Facebook, but not receiving them daily. Has that changed and I overlooked that? LOVE your blog and save all of them. I also love your e-book! Thank you for all that you do!

  14. Update - to all my crafty friends! I wouldn't get the Silhouette Curio right now. My husband bought me one for my Birthday and I was super excited! But, After trying and trying to get Customer Service to help me get it to work..I then had to ask for a supervisor, when I spoke to a supervisor he assured me he would converse with me himself to help me solve the problems. I sent him an email 5 days ago and still haven't gotten a reply. My 240.00 Birthday present has been sitting in the corner of my craft room unused for 10 days!!!! . So very dissapointed! :o( ‪#‎silhouetteamerica‬

  18. Love all your great tutorials and information, you take the scariness out of using my machine.

  19. Someone has to do something about the ease (or UNease) at being able to move the rollers. There is just NO space for your fingers to hold the bar AND grip the wheel to turn. More so when you have aching joints! I've tried now for 30 minutes with no luck

  20. My red cutting lines are jagged. Please help. It's on everything I try.

  21. Hi Melissa...Thank you so much for all the lessons. I am new to all of this. I have purchased your EBook and love it...but was wondering how I could get your daily/weekly lessons in a form I could download? don't know if that is possible. But unless they are on paper, I won't remember them. thank you so much for all you do! I have learned so much from your blogs

  22. I was given my silhouette cameo Nov 2012. I have now just gotten to becoming "involved," and it's Dec. 2015. Thanks to my discovery of your tutorials and "plain-speaking," I feel I can now tackle it. I'm actually pretty excited about it. Please keep up the good work. I, for one, truly appreciate it and believe you should get a HUGE commission from Silhouette. Thank you again.

  24. I cut a lot of fabric with my silhouette, would you recommend this blade for that? I go through blades like crazy!

  25. Hey, Melissa!I've tried to subscribe for a couple of days and have had no response. I was also interested in buying the Ultimate Silhouette Guide, but the lack of response makes me a little wary about sending money to a site which doesn't seem to be interested in subscribers. I hope this is just a temporary issue as it looks like there is a lot of information in the book and on this site.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi Melissa I bought your book five beginner silhouette tutorials and I can't find the file cut for the projects the link I have (http://bit.do/SilhouetteNewbies ) is there another link to use because that one is not working. thank you very much.

  28. My Silhouette Cameo is still waiting for me to plug in and start up AFTER more than a YEAR. Partly because the loss of 2 family members, but also because I've just been too wimpy, lol...and intimidated by the software alone! But, alas, I've discovered this school and blog and I'm about ready to begin. Fortunately, my ex is a "sign guy" who makes vinyl signs and I had the opportunity to peel and weed the vinyl for him, and watch him apply his signs many, many times so, I bring some rudimentary knowledge and experience with me. Also, (lucky for me), I've got drawers throughout my house with vinyl squeegees and may even have an old roll of vinyl to practice with! Nonetheless, had I not stumbled upon this source, my SilCam may have sat gathering dust for yet another year. I also purchased the book written specifically for the Cameo and beginners and I think it's a fantastic book. Worth every penny! I really look forward to using this site frequently and as much as possible since I've yet to find another that even comes close to all that's offered from Silhouette School Blog! Thanks for mountain of help and for creating such a comprehensive and dynamic place to go for us beginners!

  51. I actually use mine as a hobby to relax from my jewelry design business. I also like to make items for non- profit causes. My next project is for the IWK (children's hospital in Nova Svotia Canada) Make a Wish annual telethon. My childhood best friend has a son that just beat leukemia and were able to visit Paris with the foundations help.

  54. What's your favorite way to use your Silhouette machine? My favorite way to use my Silhouette machine is to create anything and everything and sell it. Make it make money for me so I can "retire"(that means stay home and create even more).

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is a difficult thing to answer. I use my Silhouette primarily for scrapbooking my family memories. However, recently, I've been using it to decorate my house (vinyl), gives and more! I LOVE my silhouette and can't wait to see what other uses will come.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I bought my silhouette to cut fabric but I use it to make bulletin boards at work, stencils, labels, photo frames, gift cards, coffee mugs, you name it!

Thanks for leaving a comment! We get several hundred comments a day. While we appreciate every single one of them it's nearly impossible to respond back to all of them, all the time. So... if you could help me by treating these comments like a forum where readers help readers.

In addition, don't forget to look for specific answers by using the Search Box on the blog. If you're still not having any luck, feel free to email me with your question.
