Thanks for running this workshop Carleyy! I had issues getting picture and it was skippy and went into a loop for a bit, but with a few reloads got it to work. On a whole, it was a very cool experience. Thanks again!

you were the ONLY person to be able to get into it then.

No, there were plenty of people commenting and asking questions. People are just more likely to come back here and comment when they couldn't get it to work.

I tried 4 different browsers, with and with out extensions. the event wouldn't let us login.

the giveaway should include those who were unable to login into the event. if it doesn't my wrath will be felt.

I'm sure it did. You didn't have to see the video to enter. It was based on following the two twitter feeds and tweeting the workshop link.

just going from the above instructions, a login event is required. If just following was indeed all that was required, then I have no problem. I soul like some official input on this though.

What channels is this going to be on am very interested. I have no sound so I hope it it not on the

If I already have one of these, can I win another one? It is a fantastic machine, you can even do car graphics with it too.

Is this competition open to people outside of U.S.A.? Would be interesting to watch, especially the robot tutorial! :)

But can everyone win? Apparently Silhouette can only ship to America and Canada...

Any way we can sign up for some sort of reminder, email or otherwise? I LOVE the Silhouette products!

you said "Like both Instructables and Silhouettes twitter page", did you mean Follow ?

Secondly, searching for "Silhouettes" in twitter brings up few Silhouettes pages. Which one to follow ? Please provide a link

Edits made! Thanks for pointing them out!

If you click on the Silhouette link in the text and scroll to the bottom, there is a twitter link to their feed.
