Welcome the Craftsy Block of the Month Tour!  It’s a great program and I’m excited to share it with you!

First, do you know about Craftsy?

Craftsy offers online courses about all of your favorite crafty topics – taught by amazing instructors. Craftsy courses are online, so they are available to you anytime you want for as long as you want – they have no scheduled class times, so you can enjoy them entirely on your own schedule. Each course is taught by an acclaimed instructor and consists of several hours of HD-quality video content… but Craftsy courses are much more than just video! While taking a Craftsy course, you can:

  • Ask your instructor questions, upload photos, and get personalized responses
  • Participate in discussions with your classmates
  • Access supporting course materials – including patterns and helpful tips & tricks
  • Bookmark your favorite moments in the video so that you can easily re-watch them and take notes that you can refer back to anytime

I love the interactive nature of Craftsy, and the a quality of product that they provide.  If you haven’t yet, set up an account and start looking around.  There are a number of classes, and occasionally a free one – like this BOM program with Amy Gibson!  The instructions are great, and you can ask questions of Amy, any time you need help.  And there’s a LOT of people making these blocks!

I took a screen shot of another great feature, you can add notes to the video privately, and jump to that spot in the video time and again, if needed.  Each month Amy will have a 30 minute video, walking quilters through two blocks, then toward the end of the year lots of finishing details, so the quilts get finished!

If you aren’t convinced to join in the fun yet, go watch the intro video on Craftsy!  I happened to meet Amy last fall at the Sewing Summit, and she’s super sweet and a lot of fun, you will enjoy working along side her each month!
