I love learning new techniques or methods of making quilts. That is one of the reasons I am such a fan of Craftsy. So I am very happy to tell you that there are some new classes that are now being offered.
Jacquie Gering is teaching Improvisational Piecing, Modern Design. This is the only new Quilting Class.One of the methods that is intriguing to me is called "Slice and Insert" Another lesson is "Stitch and Flip Improv." After watching the preview video, I know I would love to take this class.
However, there are other new classes too. Terry White is the instructor for Free-Motion Machine Embroidery. I had to borrow this picture to show you.
There is a new class by Kenneth King called The Carefree Fly-Front Coat. Since it is a ladies jacket, I am not really interested, but the picture on Craftsy looks very stylish. So if you want to make your own coat, this may be right for you.
Finally, there is a class by Marsha Winbeckler on cake decorating called Ruffles and Draping: Fabric Techniques in Fondant. Let this picture say what I can't even find words for:
There is always something fun and exciting to learn on Craftsy.
Have I told you about the FREE mini classes on Craftsy? Here are a couple that I have taken and enjoyed.
Sewing Machine 911: Give your sewing machine some TLC with the help of this free course. Learn to clean and maintain your sewing machine with tips and tricks taught in this class.
This is a great class for a new machine owner - and maybe for a seasoned sewist also. I know it refreshed me on some things I had "forgotten."
QuiltCon Lecture Series 2013: Not able to make it to Austin for the Modern Quilt Guild's inaugural QuiltCon? Watch some of our favorite lectures from the event, given by Heather Jones, Angela Walters, David and Amy Butler, Jacquie Gering, and Mary Fons.
I didn't go to QuiltCon, but this brought me up to speed on what it was about. I also learned about some of the Craftsy teachers like Angela Walters and Jacquie Gering. Having watched Fons and Porter on public television, I also really enjoyed hearing Mary Fons talk about her time on the show and how she is carrying on the tradition but with a big twist.
Try one of the free mini classes. While it is not the same as a full class, it will give you a taste of the Craftsy platform with no obligation. You can check out all of the other free Craftsy mini-courses by clicking here.
