everyone say “hi kim”!
do you craftsy? if you don’t know what craftsy is, click on the link and be prepared to spend considerable time. online classes, patterns, fabric, kits, yarn…it’s all there. i’m here to publicly admit that i have accumulated an extensive craftsy class library and haven’t completed a single one. i am a craftsy class hoarder.
i have used bits and pieces of nearly all the 150 classes in my class library (yep, 150!), but i’ve never followed a class from beginning to end. it all began several years ago, when craftsy was brand new. meg, of sew liberated, signed me up for 2 classes as a gift. i think they were the sassy librarian blouse and a tailored blazer. i took a look and was a bit dismayed to see that one of them required an 80 page print out for the pattern and quite an extensive list of materials. i watched a bit of the video and decided i’d do that “some day”.
“some day” hasn’t happened…yet. over time i’ve added to my classes whenever there was a “free class weekend”, and somehow ended up with 150 classes in that library. i believe i’ve only fully paid for 2. that 150 doesn’t include the “pattern library” which i have also been rapidly filling with free patterns (there are lots of free patterns to be had). i HAVE made several of the free patterns…does that redeem me a bit or am i just making excuses?
i have a class for everything, from photography to knife skills….sewing, knitting, bread baking, a guide to shears, a guide to zipper installation….quite a range of knowledge at my fingertips.
the beauty of the online class is it’s there whenever you need it. serger trouble? click on your serger class and troubleshoot. bread not rising properly? the answer is waiting in your bread class.
i may never view every single class in it’s entirety, but having those resources at my fingertips is awesome. go check it out…and don’t blame me if I’ve enabled you to be a class hoarder too!!
if there’s a 12 step program available, keep it to yourself. i’m having too much fun!
ps-new pattern release date is 11/20…keep an eye here on the blog or on instagram for news, pictures and a sale (just in time for holiday making)!!
