Statler Days 2018 

Good Afternoon!

I hope you are having a great summer and finding some time for yourself. I know that’s never an easy thing to do! As for us, we’ve been busy planning Statler Days 2018 and I personally believe this will be our best and most informative year yet! We are very excited about everything we have to offer this year. We always strive to put on 3 great days of classes with industry leading instructors that really help us understand Creative Studio. For our new attendees, the opportunity to network with other Statler owners always proves invaluable.

Statler Days 2018 will be held October 4th, 5th, and 6st. Classes will run Thursday & Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Show and Tell and our Challenge will be on Saturday again this year, so be ready. It's always a blast to see the creativity and work that you all put into your projects! Click here to learn a little more about our challenge this year!


Meet the teachers! 

Joan Knight

Joan Knight is a fixture of Statler Days and it's safe to say that it wouldnt be the same without her! If you have taken a class with Joan, then you know why! Check out her Barn Buddies videos if you havent by clicking here!

Corey Pearson

Corey is sometimes called a rising star, we call him a super star! He's got a natural teaching ability and has been a part of this world his entire life. Corey has an amazing understanding of CS that he articulates in a way that everyone can understand. Check out his videos by clicking here! 

Joyce Lundrigan

We're very excited to have Joyce here for her first Statler Days ever! Shes an amazing teacher and we can't wait to watch her teach! Check out her videos here! 

Special guest Matt Sherman

This year we will also be hosting a very special guess, Matt Sherman Senior Programmer at
Statler Stitcher. It could be said that he knows more about Creative Studio then anyone on the planet! He will be here to help anyway he can and maybe bring us some insight as to where Creative Studio is going from here.


This year, we will have a total of 30 sessions that we’ve developed so that you can follow along with your laptops. The power supply will be somewhat limited so have those laptops charged and ready to go! These aren’t stand-alone mode classes, but the classes are structured for you to be able to follow along on your own laptop. With over 100 students, we won’t be able to hold up the sessions for laptop issues. So, for our students brand new to CS7, trying to follow along on your laptop could prove to be a challenge.

For those of you that don’t have CS7 set up on your laptop, Matt Sherman, Doug, and our teachers will be here on Wednesday from 5pm-8pm to provide assistance in setting up the program.

The price for Statler Days this year will be $300 plus tax, totaling $321.75 Per Student. You can register at the link below. All users and non-users will have the same fee this year. If you are a non-taxed business, please bring a copy of your tax exemption!

We’re going to have an open house and meet and greet on Wednesday evening at 5pm-8pm. This is a great time to mingle with teachers and make new friendships! Snacks and refreshments will be available as well as your registration packet. You’ll be welcome to come in any time after 12 pm on Wednesday to pick up your class information. We’ll also be at the visitor’s center at 8:30 Thursday morning to finish registration before classes start if you can't make it in on Wednesday.
