About Our Instructors | Sarah Strunk of Simply Sarah

Sarah Strunk

In 2011 Sarah got her first Silhouette and fell in love, so much so she started her business just months later. Her first love, however, is her military husband who she would follow to end of the earth. She had no idea how literal that would be and has learned to adjust to the constant moving and change. But her one constant is her ever growing business.

While Sarah loves nearly any excuse to use her Silhouette her true passion is in hand painted signs. Her love of this led to her eBook which teaches others to how to turn their love of painted signs into painting parties. Sarah hopes to help others discover their passion and grow their own businesses one brush stroke at a time.

Visit ShopSimplySarah.com for more information and join her at our show for Make It, Take It Workshop on creating Quick & Simple Mini-Chalkboard Art! Her products are available at the show in Booth #835 in the Jim Graham Building (across from the Make It, Take It Workshop area).
