I am so excited to team up with Craftsy to giveaway a Craftsy class on my blog! Have you taken a class at Craftsy? You need to explore all the classes that they offer. I’ve talked about a few classes I’ve taken in the past. There are some free classes and for fee classes. I am signed up for the Coutoure Dress class and the Pant Fitting Techniques class. I am in progress in the Pant class and I love it. Not only can you take it at your own pace but you can replay portions as necessary.

My mom did not sew yet I loved to sew as a child. I sewed by hand using any materials I could get my hands on. Sometimes my dolls were clothed in wallpaper dresses!  I received my first sewing machine as a gift from my husband when my oldest son was born. Sewing was, then, such a creative outlet. I enjoyed sewing during naptimes and evenings. (That seems like a lifetime ago….life with four teens does not have nice little pockets of sewing time. But, boy, do I need my sewing for my sanity now!)

Everything I learned about sewing was learned from books or classes. I always loved school and being in a sewing class gives me the same kind of thrill that going to school did. Summer is a great time to learn a new skill and would be a perfect time to take a quilting class at Craftsy! Even better, it is a great time to WIN a quilting class from Craftsy!

Have you heard about the Quilt-As-You-Go method? It is really fun. The class starts with how to make a potholder so you can get familiar with the technique. And then you move on to the construction of the adorable bag shown above! There is such a lovely, meditative rhythm when you quilt. (If you have teens, you definitely need meditation!) It’s also a great way to use up some of your fabric stash!

It’s easy to enter the contest. Hope over to Craftsy using this link and enter your information. Even if you already have a Craftsy account, you can still enter by using your existing login information. (If you have any trouble seeing the giveaway page, using Firefox should help.)
