Dog Days of Summer

craftsy-logoIn the interest of full disclosure, this is a sponsored post from Craftsy. However, I just wanted to let you know about the great summer sale going on right now. The sale runs today August 8 until Monday, August 11 (11:59 pm). You can save up to 50% on  ALL of Craftsy’s 400+ classes. I have taken many of the sewing and quilting classes and recently starting taking some of the photography classes so that I could improve  the product photography for my Etsy shop. There are also many free classes if you just want to try it out first before you commit. The great thing about Craftsy, is that the classes are available to you on demand. They never expire. Just click on link above, the widget in my side bar or the links below to open your account or to sign up for your next class. This is how I do it: I browse the list of classes and add them to my wishlist. When Craftsy has a sale, I browse my wish list and select which classes I would like to add to my library. I love to run these classes while I am sewing, cutting, ironing, etc. Here is a list of some the classes I have taken and I highly recommend these:

I am sure there are many more great classes, these are just the ones that I really, really enjoyed. Not only are there classes on sewing and quilting, but also classes on embroidery, paper crafts, art, photography, gardening, woodworking, knitting, crocheting, weaving, cooking and cake decorating. Craftsy also sells patterns from indie designers and fabric. I am a big believer in life-long learning. My philosophy is this: if I learn one new thing, it is worth the price of the class. I hope you take advantage of this great sale. Let me know what class you signed up for.
