Ever wanted to go away for a weekend without the kids and spend it crafting with a few hundred new friends that are interested in their Silhouette, too?
You are in luck, the All Things Silhouette Conference is a one-of-a-kind experience that allows you to take off for the weekend and learn all kinds of new things about the Silhouette Cameo, Portrait, Alta, Mint, heat presses, project tutorials, and so much more.
Before the pandemic, I presented on craft businesses, trademarks, and ethical crafting at the All Things Silhouette Conference. I no longer participate in the virtual All Things Silhouette Conference, but still recommend it to crafty friends.
Here is more information about the event.
