Getting to Know: Christine Schinagl

This week in our “Getting to Know” series, I’m thrilled to present Christine Schinagl of Cutting for Business. Christine brings a unique perspective to the Silhouette world. Not only is she a crafter but she has also built a successful business helping other Silhouette and Cricut users launch and grow their own crafting businesses.

Christine lives in Florida, just outside of Disney World, with her husband and four young children. She is a presenter for various business-related classes at the All Things Silhouette conferences and is one of the few instructors who has taught at all five ATS events held since November 2015. When I first met Christine at the registration table during the April 2016 conference, building a Silhouette-related business was the last thing on my mind. Boy, how quickly things have changed!
