Thank you Giveaway(s)

I want to thank everyone who recently bought Craftsy classes through my affiliate link.  Several of you took advantage of the great sale they were having on their classes.  I did too!  I picked up a few classes about sewing garments since I know absolutely nothing about doing that.

As a thank you, I am hosting a little giveaway!

While on vacation, I got to meet the lovely Jennifer from The Knotted Thread.  Jennifer runs an Etsy shop by the same name and has a bunch of fun items, including a "Pick Any 6 Fat Quarters" from her inventory.


Create your own bundle - Choose 6 FQs or 1.5 yard Equivalent

***This giveaway is now closed***

I am going to give away one of these bundles to TWO winners!  (That's one bundle each to 2 people.)  To win, just leave me a comment about which Craftsy class is your favorite and why. Or if you haven't taken a Craftsy class yet, tell me which one you are most interested in and what technique you hope to learn from it.  That's it, just a comment.  No follow me, like me, join me, just a comment answering the question.  I will draw the winners next Saturday, August 10th.  International friends are welcome to enter too.

Thank you again to everyone who bought classes, you made this giveaway possible.

Tomorrow I am off to the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach.  I have my camera all charged up and ready to take loads of pictures so I can resume my "Inspirational Sunday" posts.  Hooray!

Thanks for reading,

Jen

  20. I have bought loads of Craftsy classes. Love Jacquie Gering's class Improvisational Piecing- Modern Design, Elizabeth Fransson's Inspired Modern Quilts, and Angela Walters FMQ Negative Space. I find them full of useful info and it's just like you are getting a one on one tutorial.

  26. I have not taken any classes on Craftsy, but would love to take a class on free motion quilting. I need to learn how to do it better on my domestic sewing machine.

  27. I am a Craftsy addict I have to confess. I have all the quilting classes except maybe 6. They are on my list. Peggy Martin quick strip paper piecing and Leah Days quilting a sampler are two of my favorit I think. It is so hard to pick. I love to learn and have learned so much from every class that I have taken. I try to do at least one project from each class. I loved the precut piecing and Nancy Smith strip your stash. Ann Pederson is great too. O I just cant pick.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am going through Precision Piecing right now and I am learning so much!

  39. I Love Craftsy, and it is nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite one. I have several quilting and sewing classes. I enjoyed Sarah Fielke's class, Big Techniques from Small Scraps was so very useful and informative. I also am making my own handbag and someday will make jeans, but because it is the height of tomato season, and I have never been successful with tomato growing before my Craftsy class Garden Fresh, for today I will say this is my favorite.

  40. I love Camille Roskelley's Pre-Cut Piecing class. I have just started so I know I am going to learn a lot of good techniques! I so love the Craftsy forum! I have taken advantage of several other classes and love them all!

  41. I have a few of their free classes but I would like to take a quilting class, thanks for the giveaway.

  42. I am really enjoying Crochet Lab... I haven't crocheted in decades and I bought this one during their last sale. So much faster to pick it up again via video than trying read instructions!

  43. I'm doing Carol Doaks mastering paper piecing and it's great. I've also signed up for designing modern quilts but haven't started watching it yet :o)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think I would really like to take the Free Motion Quilting a Sampler by Leah Day. Boy do I need to brush up on those FMQ skills :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have taken several Craftsy classes...some free, some not, but my favorite is still Amy Gibson's 2013 Craftsy BOM. I really enjoyed the pace of the class and checking in each month for a new block/project. With many of the classes I have purchased, I find that I do not finish the course or I don't go back to the course as much as I did with Amy. Thanks for asking and for the giveaway.

  46. I've taken several classes My current favorite is Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine. The 2012 block of the month is the class that got me back into quilting. I love craftsy! The next class I plan to take is Precision Piecing.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
