Give a Sewing Class This Christmas

(Sponsored Post*)

There is nothing as inspiring as attending a class or sewing guild with a group of local sewers where you can chat with people who are as passionate as you are about your craft! For this reason I make an effort each month to attend our local Modern Quilt Friendship Group! But I know that in some stages of life, it’s harder to get away from the house (like for instance, when you have small kids without readily available childcare, or you work full time and need to be home for the family on the weekends). Maybe there’s a skill you’d like to learn that you can’t find locally. That’s when I’m thankful for sites like Craftsy.



If there’s a skill you’d like to learn or a class you think a family member would love, you’ll want to take advantage of the sale they have now through 12/25! The great thing about buying a class from Craftsy is once you buy it, it’s yours forever to watch whenever you have time!

Free Quilting Class

Well, yesterday was my last full day at my outside-the-home job. I’ll be finishing up a project for them in the weeks to come, but I won’t be there full time anymore. It was a wonderful day of kind words, hugs, pretty cards, staff lunch & a tear or two. I will miss it there, but I’m so thrilled to be able to be home.

I find myself dreaming about “all the time” I’ll have now, but before you laugh too loud at me, you should know I have at least one foot in reality & I’m sure I’ll meet some more along the way. 😉

One thing I do hope I can find time for again is my sewing. Upon opening my email this morning, I saw this!


Yes – A FREE Block of the month class from Craftsy. Here’s an excerpt from the class description (Click the picture above to read the whole thing):

Learn fun quilting techniques, make new friends and create a one-of-a-kind quilt with the FREE Craftsy Block of the Month! Each month, Amy Gibson will guide you through a specific quilting technique – half- and quarter-square triangles, appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more. Then she’ll teach you two nifty 12-inch blocks using what you’ve learned. Some are brand-new designs, others fresh twists on traditional favorites. Along the way, you’ll make 20 blocks from fat quarters, then assemble them into a throw-sized quilt.

So while this goes against my destash plans, I may sign up just to have it for future reference. I’ve not taken an online Craftsy class before, but from what I’ve seen, the topics are relevant & pertain to all types of sewing/knitting/crocheting/paper crafting so if this one doesn’t float your boat, be sure to check out their other classes (no affiliate credit or any payment to me, just passing on a good thing when I see it!).

I would love to hear from you if you’ve taken a Craftsy class, considered it or never heard of them!

Have a great Super Bowl Weekend!
