Hello, all, and Happy Friday!
I wanted to let you know that I was recently notified about the "2014 Craftsy Block Of The Month" FREE mini class. This FREE mini class introduces you to color theory with new lessons introduced over 2014. The idea of studying color theory is great for any crafter - including knitters and crocheters - who are looking to spice up their designs without increasing the level of difficulty. If you're interested, sign up today to create a beautiful and colorful sampler quilt and learn more about packing some extra punch.
Not interested in quilting? That's okay, too. Learn something new in 2014 with one of Craftsy's other FREE mini classes! Try your hand at sewing, make a pizza at home, or learn to take beautiful family portraits. Check out what you can learn for free here: Craftsy Free Classes. I've already signed up for the following:
Know Your Wool: I started taking this free mini class awhile go and it's amazing. While I knew that sheep produced wool with different fibers, I had no idea there were that many sheep in the world. It's almost overwhelming to think of how unique your yarn can be - and if you're a spinner, this class really opens up possibilities.
Short Rows: I haven't started this class yet, but I'm looking forward to it. The more projects I explore with my knitting, the more I've needed to use short rows. I don't completely stink at them, but I know there must be ways to make my technique look better, and I plan on this class helping!
Bag-Making Basics: Drawstring Bag & Button Bag and Bag-Making Basics: Reversible Tote & Zipper Pouch: I signed up for these because one of my goals is always to learn how to use my sewing machine. I thought that taking this beginner classes will help me figure out what's going on while also producing something cute. As an added bonus, I may learn how to line one of my crochet or knit bags.
So which free class are you going to take? Let me know if you spot any other classes that pique your interest, as well - I'm always game to try something new and crafty!
