F̶a̶b̶r̶i̶c̶ ̶G̶i̶v̶e̶a̶w̶a̶y̶ ̶F̶r̶i̶d̶a̶y̶ // Craftsy Giveaway!

Due to some scheduling issues on my behalf we are having F̶a̶b̶r̶i̶c̶ ̶G̶i̶v̶e̶a̶w̶a̶y̶ ̶F̶r̶i̶d̶a̶y̶ which really has no fabric, in fact in the future there will be an occasional Fabric Giveaway Friday's with possibly thread giveaways, or notions and tools as well since of a few of my newer sponsors aren't in fabric retail.

Craftsy is an online platform for Crafting Classes, and Workshops. They also have an online shop in which they sell patterns, fabric, and supplies. The cool thing is you can sell your own patterns on Craftsy and you make 100% of the profits. As a web designer and developer I think that Craftsy is really a brilliant idea. The design is beautiful, easy to use, and the classes are really really helpful and very affordable.

Craftsy Patterns

  Craftsy has patterns galore from unique designers all over the world. In fact this weekend I have a little announcement about this for myself :) When buying a pattern from Craftsy you are truly supporting the designer, Craftsy give them 100% of the profit!  

Craftsy Classes

I am personally signed up for 7 classes, that was 6, haha but now 7. But, that is the beauty of Craftsy you can finish your class whenever you feel like it and go at your own pace. You will have access to the classes forever. When most have free time to "Watch TV" I am watching Craftsy! Here are some of the classes I am taking… Creative Quilt Backs with Elizabeth Hartman This class is FREE, which is awesome. I already finished the class and it really changed my quilting. When I would design a quilt back I could never figure out how to get my back to line up with what I wanted on the front. This class shows you how to design awesome backings and how to properly baste them so everything lines up properly. You end up with basically two quilts in one!

Machine Quilting Negative Space with Angela Walters

Brilliant. I absolutely loved this class. I finished it pretty quickly because It was so good. Angela is an awesome teacher and an amazing quilter. She has personally helped me quite a few times when I had some quilting issues. If you want to learn more about FMQ this class is perfect, this isn't just for Long Arm Quilters either, I use a Domestic Machine and it was very helpful.

Designing Modern Quilts with Weeks Ringle

I was so excited when I saw this new class a few weeks ago. Week's and Bill's book Quilting Modern was one of the first books I read when I began quilting. I love their designs and am very excited to be taught how to design from them.

Inspired Modern Quilts by Elizabeth Hartman

I am about halfway through this class and it is fantastic. Elizabeth Hartman is one of my all time favorite designers (I am taking her class at QuiltCon!!), and the quilts you get to make in this class are beautiful. I have not made them, but what I am getting the most out of this class is watching Elizabeth making multiple quilts start to finish. You get to see how she plans, designs, pieces, bastes, quilts, all which I have found very helpful.
