Anita M. Geigley - New Instructor to the Stamping Place Crafting has been part of my life forever!   As a child, I watched my mother make creative prizesfor my missionary aunt to use in her Religious Education classes.  I continue dabbling in many art and craft areas.For the past ten years, I have focused on paper crafting.  While managing an independent scrapbook store, I also taught classes.  My favorites are the Elizabeth Craft Glitter Ritz classes and the Silhouette Beginners Class.  Other areas I enjoy are upcycling items, using alcohol inks, making cards, and scapbooking.   I love teaching people how to use the equipment and products they have purchased.My family and I moved to South Carolina from Pennsylvania 17 years ago. We love the warm winters and “southern snows”.  My husband and I live in Spartanburg with our cat, Josie.  Our daughter, Kathleen is a student at Northeastern University in Boston. Beginner's Silhouette Class - Instructor: Anita Saturday, April 23, at 10:30am (COST OF CLASS $20 if also taking afternoon Workshop) This is a "kindergarten level" class to learn the powerful software, Silhouette Studio.  This software is used on the Cameo, Portrait, and Silhouette SD.  When you learn the software, you will be able to proceed to many, many other avenues on the Silhouette digital cutter.  We will unravel the mystery of how to cut several colors by grouping and ungrouping. I developed this class about 5 years ago.  Since that time, I have been teaching the class regularly and have been teaching this course for the past 5 years.  After taking the course, people are ready to use their machine. Student Supplies: Silhouette cutter, laptop, cutting mat, blade, any tools if they have them, and a few sheets of cardstock.  I recommend everyone use a mouse rather than the touchpad.   It is easier to manipulate the shapes with a mouse than the touchpad. Silhouette Workshop - Instructor: Anita Saturday, April 23, at 1:30pm (COST OF CLASS $20 if also taking morning class) In this class the student will work on several projects of their choice.  I recommend working with a shape that has three or more colors, learning to cut and piece the shapes.  If someone has questions on vinyl and heat transfer vinyl.  Students are asked to bring their own materials.  I will help them cut their preferred shapes, discussing pros and cons of various techniques.  This could be an open forum.  When I teach a class, everyone finishes! Pre-requisite for this class (especially if they do not sign up for the Beginner's Class in the morning) - MUST have working knowledge and experience with the following steps:  Grouping and Ungrouping, Welding, Page Format details, Cutting and Depth parameters.  The Workshop will not be at the beginner's level.
