JULY CLASS EVENT to July 4, 2017

I've been pre-celebrating Canada Day on my blog for the past several months, so maybe a Craftsy sale is in order to complete the occasion. This is actually the Independence Day Go Fourth and Save sale, but let's not be picky! You can get every Craftsy class for under $20 USD this weekend, so if you have a wish list to fulfill, now might be the time.

While you're there, did you know that Craftsy has put some of their most popular classes on DVD? If you have a family member who doesn't have easy access to the internet (yes, there are still some of those) or just someone who prefers to be able to see classes on a TV screen in a sewing room, this could be your ticket!

If you're interesting in checking them out, click here. (And yes, I know, it would be nice if there was a "deal" for those who already bought a specific class to upgrade to a DVD...) Prices vary, but seem to start at $20 USD.


This weekend only, pick up what Craftsy is calling its "members' favourites" classes for under $20 USD. To be totally up front, I can't tell you by what criteria they've established these favourites, but there you go — maybe yours is among them.

Check out the sale here and happy crafting!

CELEBRATE MOM'S DAY to May 14, 2017

I haven't been covering all of Craftsy's promotions on a regular basis (quite simply because they tend to have them too often, in my humble opinion) but this weekend's offers are worth a shout-out.

Admittedly, Craftsy holds a lot of sales, but some do stand out for offering great value. This one, for instance! Through Sunday, all regular classes (they do have some exceptions) are priced at a very reasonable and affordable $20 or less!

Of course, those of us who do not live in the US have to make up for the currency difference, but still, there are bargains to be had. Consider these:

Craftsy took the opportunity to gather up a bunch of project kits (pattern & fabric) that are good for rainy day (or any day) crafting and put them on sale. Take a look through these and see what you can make and enjoy in a day! These are great to have if you're planning a holiday and need a new look or if someone's birthday is coming up and you want a "quick sew".

And since the reason for this annual tradition is to start shopping for gifts for Christmas and other holiday seasons, how about using Craftsy as a "one stop shop" this year? A class in crafting that allows the recipient to create something for him/herself is actually way cool and doesn't take up space in a closet. Gift a class today!

400+ CLASSES ON SALE! Aug 7-9, 2015

Craftsy has put out a lot of new course offerings over the past year and they are now on sale! We are talking deep discounts, so if you've had some of the newer classes on your wishlist, maybe now is the time for some wish fulfillment. Think of it as a mid-summer holiday gift for yourself.

Suggestions? Back in May, I saw these, which are currently both half off...

Sewing with Oilcloth class from Craftsy.com

Sewing with Oilcloth is new. Kathy McGee takes you through the process of making a market (tote) bag and a great looking sewing basket using oilcloth! (Check out similar projects that I've made with waxcloth by clicking on the "working with waxcloth" tag on the left sidebar.) This is a beginner level sewing class in seven lessons and sure to take the apprehension out of using oilcloth and similar laminated fabrics.

Sew Sturdy Home Organizers class from Craftsy.com
Image courtesy of Craftsy.com...

If you are beyond the beginner level, Annie Unrein is back with a new class: Sewing Sturdy Home Organizers. Follow along and make a set of professional-looking stacking band boxes as well as a "catch-all" caddy for whatever you please. Having seen Annie's other class for travel organizers, I will offer this caveat: there is quilting involved and these will be expensive projects to make. On the other hand, the results are worth it if you're a crafter who likes to make quality items for gift giving or personal use.

Check out these and more this weekend; sale ends Sunday night.
