craftsy
have y'all ever heard of craftsy?
if yes, aren't they dreamy?
if not, sit back and let me tell you a bit about them.

craftsy is an online community for all crafters.
for people that love everything from quilting to cake decorating.

they offer a wide selection of classes from all sorts of peeps across the world.
people like vanessa christenson, camille roskelley & elizabeth hartman.
just to name a few.

my favorite thing about craftsy, is that you can watch your classes from anywhere, from any device with an internet connection.
you can take them anytime you want, as many times as you want.
and your access never, ever expires.

pre cut piecing made simple
after receiving my free voucher at fall market, i couldn't decide which quilting class to take.
it took me forever to make up my mind.
but i finally chose camille's precut piecing made simple class.
it was such fun to have camille in my house.
she didn't even care about the dirty dishes in the sink. ;)
(hi, camille. xoxo)

since then, i've taken a few other classes as well.
i really like being able to take the classes at my leisure.
let's face it, miss lindsey takes most of my attention during the day.
so, when i have a few extra minutes after bedtime, it's nice to settle in with a lesson or two.

precision piecing
the good folks over at craftsy, want to give a lucky ps i quilt reader a precision piecing class.
you'll learn how to step up your piecing skills and tackle more complex patchwork.
this class is taught by norah mcmeeking.

to enter : click HERE to sign up for craftsy. (it's free!!!)
don't worry, if you already have a craftsy account, just follow this link and sign in.
one entry per person.
please note: you have to follow the link in order to enter the giveaway.

also, come back and tell me which craftsy class you really, really want to take.
i think my next class will be angela walters' free motion quilting with feathers.
i could use a good feather lesson.

winner will be announced saturday.

xo, rachel

Oh how cool is this place?! I hadn't heard about it before. I have a feeling I'm gonna go broke here in no time! Hrmm...I think my choice for classes would be a toss up between Re-piecing the past (i love civil war quilts) and Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist. It sounds intriguing.

Becky said...

I love craftsy and have taken many classes. The next class on my list is Angela Walter's quilting with feathers. I learned so much in her previous class

Kelly O. said...

I love craftsy! I just took Vanessa's class and now I want to do Camille's!

Ramanda said...

Huge fan of Craftsy! Their pattern library is a fantastic resource. I want to take the Big Projects On a Small machine or the Design It, Quilt It class. I am too darn cheap to send my quilts off to be professionally quilted. Thanks for the giveaway, pal!

Jantine said...

I love craftsy and have my mind set on one of Leah Days free motion quilting classes, I am not sure which one though.

Gill said...

So many great classes! I like the look of 'precision piecing' and 'big techniques for small scraps'!!

Stephanie said...

What a fun giveaway! I used my Sewing Summit voucher for a toe up sock knitting class. I'd love to take the modern quilt design class. :)

Pippa Parsons said...

Im signed up to 3 courses, camilles included, love craftsy

Tricia said...

I would love to take a sock knitting class ---just haven't picked one yet!

Alana said...

I've taken several Craftsy classes and it was a blast. The piecing class in your giveaway is one I would like to take next.

Katie Ellis said...

I just discovered craftsy like a week ago, and I love it. I want to take ALL the free motion classes!!

Mic said...

I want to take Camille's class!! Hopefully this summer I have some time to take a couple classes!

Liz G said...

Never heard of this site before but it looks so fun! I love the idea of online classes! So many fun ones, but I think the first on my list is Designing Modern Quilts.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Thank you Rachel. I think I would take either the Precision Piecing (I've made one of Norah's patterns) or Angela's free motion quilting.

QuiltLaughLove said...

Oh boy could I ever use some help with precision! Just started quilting in December and need all the help I can get. Lol!

Elaine said...

I really want to take Camille's Pre-cuts piecing class!

Sarah_L_N said...

Oh I like the look of the precut one you picked! I also like the look of Machine-Finished Hand Appliqué or anything to do with FMQ. I've not tried it before, it looks more complicated than it is, I'm sure!

Debra Graham said...

I really enjoy Craftsy. I understand that Allie Aller is going to be teaching a class on crazy quilting. I think I would like to try that.

giddy99 said...

I need to take a beginning Free Motion quilting class! But which one!?!? aaauuuggghhhh!

Ali said...

I've really wanted to take the Couture Dress class, but I can't say I don't want to take Angela Walter's FMQ class just as much, thanks for the giveaway!

Kitty said...

I've taken a few Craftsy classes. Next I'd like to take Sarah Fielke's Big Techniques from Small Scraps. She has lots of good tips for quilters.

CJ said...

I want to take Camille's class. :)

Janet McNamara Houck said...

I can't decide. I have the Linear Landscape, Insert & Applique circles by machine, Quilting Feathers and Design it Quilt it. I have taken several of the Craftsy classes and found them just wonderful.

scottylover said...

I love Craftsy! I am doing the BOM and have several other classes purchased. Besides the precision piecing class, I want to take the Machine Finished Applique class.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Brenda said...

I would like to take Sarah Fielke's Big Techniques from Small Scraps or Camille's class.Really I'd love to take any class.

pennydog said...

I've taken a few and liked Cindy Needham's quilting class a lot. My next one will be Jacquie Gering's improv one but I've also been looking at precision piecing!

Denise in PA said...

I really want to take Camille's class! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

I think the wax fabric dying class sounds interesting. But I really would like the big quilts on little machines class!

annemarie said...

I want to take Camille's class.

abengel said...

I want to take that Precut Piecing class, because I already have the pieces cut to make a Swoon quilt (okay, TWO Swoon quilts), and I thought that taking the class might make them come out better.

Julie said...

I have so many jelly rolls I think I better sign up for the Magical Jelly Roll Quilts class :)

KStew93 said...

I am so excited about this! I have never heard about anything like it, and I can't wait to browse around on there. The first quilting class that caught my attention was Quilting Quickly by Jenny Doan. Since I am still a beginner, I can use all the tips and tricks I can get! Thanks for this opportunity!

Marilyn said...

I would love to take the quick-strip paper piecing class...

Karen Dobbs said...

Oh, I would LOVE to take the precision piecing class! I'd also like Camille's class. Thank you for the giveaway.

OhioLori said...

This is soooo Awesome!!! To win a Class is sooo exciting! :)

I would really love taking the Class, Machine Quilting Free Motion & More w/ Wendy Butler Burns!! I want to learn FMQ....but am such a chicken to jump in! :( lol

Kristi said...

I've taken a few classes and I'm right there with you Angela Waters Feather class is the next one that I'd like to take!

Nita said...

I love Craftsy :) I would like to take "sewing the perfect fit" for my next class. I want to learn to sew clothing. :)

Vikki B said...

I am thinking about the feathers class by Angela Walters, or the Pre-cut piecing by Camille Roskelley. I love the craftsy classes and am working on some projects from various classes right now!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Hand-Stitched Collage Quilt by Laura Wasiloski looks like fun.

Marieke said...

Craftsy is great. It's nice to have access to a resource that goes a level deeper than books and photo tutorials, especially when you don't live somewhere with access to actual classes.

I think there's always a class on Craftsy that I want to take. Right now the list includes Angela Walters' Feathers class, Camille Roskelley's pre-cuts class, and frmo the sewing section Lynda Maynard's Sew the Perfect fit class.

Lori said...

I would love to take the Pre-cut class with Camille.

Ellen said...

I would love to take Elizabeth Hartman's Inspired Modern Quilts! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Rachelle said...

I already have a lot of classes to watch, but the next one I want is the Heirloom Lace Edgings by Franklin Habit.

Karen said...

I've taken Camille's class too. I would like to take the Machine Quilting: Free-motion and More class (among others).

the girlfriend gap said...

I have taken 2 craftsy classes. I think my next class might be Sarah Fielke's class. Thanks for the giveaway. Janita

tina* said...

Now I have another great site to take me away from quilting/knitting! I think i'll have to take a free motion quilting class.

KatieQ said...

I am interested in Quilting Large Projects on a Small Machine.

Marjorie Nath said...

I would love to take Leah Day's Free Motion Fillers, Vol. 1 & 2

Deb said...

Definitely it would be Camille's class.

Emily said...

I want to take Jacque's Improvisational Piecing class. Thanks for the chance to win!

Ether Bourn said...

I have a long wish list on craftsy. I am in the middle of a Weeks Ringle class and have enjoyed several of the freebies. The serger class is probably my next choice. I love using mine but my skill-set is pretty slim.

Fran said...

I really need to take the Precision Peicing because my blocks are so imprecise that it's not funny! Thanks for the giveaway - I've taken Camiile's class & it's great.

Billy'sgirl said...

I love the classes on Craftsy. I have taken Camille's, Jenny Doan's (2), and Kimberly Einmo's (2), among others. I agree, there is a perfect class for a beginner or a seasoned quilter, and some are even free.

Deb C. said...

I am a cross-crafter. I have been dying to take Fit To Flatter by Amy Herzog and also Free Motion Quilting class by Wendy Butler Burns. Craftsy is such a huge resource.

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

You know, I get craftsy emails but have never really looked at their list of classes. Thanks for the chance to win one!

My favorites would be either the "Quilting Quickly" or "Pattern Free Quilt Making." :)

april said...

I love craftsy and would like to take one of Angela Walters classes. Thanks for a neat giveaway!

I really miss my laptop. The desktop won't go by my sewing machine. I have Angela Walter's Quilting Negative Spaces and her Feathering class is on my wishlist too. ll_gee at hotmail

debbymom said...

I'll take any of Leah Day's classes. She is an inspiration for machine quilting motifs!

Pumlans flitiga fingrar said...

If I win Iwould love to take a class with Sarah Fielke!

Sandra said...

There are so many interesting classes (and so little time!!), but I think one of Leah Day's classes. I need to improve in my FMQ. Thanks for arranging the giveaway!

KMSC said...

I would like to take Norah's precision piecing class.

foodmathquilts said...

I am signed up for several rfee classes, but haven't decided on any of the paid ones yet. I like the look of Elizabeth Harrman's piecing class, since I really liked her free "quilt backing" seminar.

Sarah

MaryT said...
