Classes

I don't know if you have ever taken an online class but it is a lot of fun.
I have taken several classes from Craftsy.  I have learned a lot of very fun techniques. One of my favorite classes was Stupendous Stitching with Carol Ann Waugh.
Online Stupendous Stitching Class

You may remember these little art quilts that I made using what I learned in the class:



The simple fact is, YOU can learn to make amazing work like this too.  And you don't have to travel to attend a class.  You can sit at your computer and take the class. Or if you have an iPad, there is an App for that!  You get answers to your questions from both the instructor and other students.  Who knows, you may make some new friends. 

Craftsy has all kinds of creative classes.  I am enrolled in some classes on cooking, sewing and of course quilting arts.  There are some free classes you can take to just get started trying it.
I like the platform so much that I have become an affiliate. So if you click through a link in this post OR my affiliate link at the top left sidebar and take a class, I get a few pennies. These will go toward giveaways and if there is enough, more classes.  Just in case you want to go RIGHT NOW and check it out, here is another picture link:

Sounds like fun. I have taken a couple of classes maybe after this baby is born and my hubby retires from the navy in a couple months I can take some night classes.
