I’m back home from the June 2017 All Things Silhouette Conference and while the fun in Atlanta has ended (for now), spending the weekend with almost 500 fellow Silhouette enthusiasts has only intensified my love for these machines and all they are capable of. I’m already looking forward to the November conference!
As usual, a wide variety of classes were offered. I personally attended classes on getting started with the Curio, etching acrylics, using the Pixscan mat, tracing, rhinestones, heat transfer vinyl, and wood sign painting. And yet there were still so many more that I wanted to take – business classes, intro to sublimation printing, cutting polymer clay, and stenciling fabric just to name a few.
I was so busy both days that I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures but Christine from Cutting for Business put together a wonderful slideshow with images from the weekend, which you can find here. And my friend (and fellow TJC Licensed Instructor) Joyce graciously agreed to let me share her photos with you. Joyce is one of the most energetic and creative people I know – and she always keeps her camera and selfie stick close by! If you’re ever in need of an instructor in the Gallup, NM area don’t hesitate to look her up here or find her on Facebook. You’ll be glad you did!
And, finally, a huge thanks to this lady right here. She is the one who began the All Things Silhouette Conference and she strives to make each one better than the one before. She’s had a difficult year but that hasn’t dimmed her energy and enthusiasm for this event. Her courage, determination, and positive outlook are an encouragement to everyone around her. She doesn’t do it alone of course, but the fact that she has a team of people who are eager and willing to help (most of whom are volunteers) is a testament to how much she is loved and admired.
So if you’re thinking about attending the ATSC in November, don’t wait too long to purchase your ticket because it’s always sold-out at least two months in advance. Hotel rooms will be snatched up quickly as well. Hope to see you there!
