Today I’m finishing off a few things at home and I preparing to get on the road to the All Things Silhouette Conference in Peachtree City, Georgia. I’m presenting this weekend at the All Things Silhouette Conference for the seventh time! Since I’ll be away from the computer all day today, I figured I’d tell you a little bit about the conference so you can join me at the November conference or one of the 2020 conferences.
Here are some common questions and answers about the event.

Past Conference Recap Videos
After several of the conferences, I have created a short video recap. Watch them:
Since 2015, Christine Schinagl has been helping crafters start and run craft businesses through her blog, Cutting for Business. As a Silhouette and Cricut crafter herself, she has a unique take on what works and what doesn’t work in the craft business world. She also teaches a course on creating digital SVG designs, available at How to Design SVGs.

Would certainly be fun. I'm holding out for another All Things Silhouette Conference on the West Coast. Did you know it is super economical to have such an event in Palm Springs in the summer months? There are also several hotel chains in So. Cal. that provide breakfast & dinner, for hotel guests, as well as free meeting rooms that would be perfect too, including one quite close to the San Diego airport (hint, hint).

Hopefully you'll join us sometime! I don't have any say on where the conference is held. If I did, it'd be in Orlando! :)
