    Question about Craftsy.com

    Because of interesting comments about this site I followed the link and it's a great site. I have started the free BOM class-not to make a quilt-sampler quilts others have done are beautiful, but not my taste for my home. I have wanted to make some new throw pillows for different rooms, including some seasonal ones so I will be making and using the blocks for this project. This also enables me to work out of my stash. My question concerns the Strip Paper Piecing class with Peggy Martin. I have wanted to take a class on this and the projects feature many of the techniques I want to learn. Right now it is on sale for $29. I won't be able to start for a while. So those of you who are Craftsy knowledgable. Is this a best price or will it be marked down again? Don't want to miss the opportunity, but since it will be a couple of months before I have time I'd hate to purchase now and then see it for a lesser price later. Any "knowledge from experience" out there is appreciated!
    Come to Me and I will give you rest--Jesus.

    I think that is what I paid for quilting quickly...often they will have a special where every 3rd person who purchases the class will get it free, but I haven't seen that for the strip paper piecing class yet....

    Thanks, looking at my budget because I definitely don't want to miss out on this class.

    Thanks for the link. I loved looking at the pictures. I find that it takes so long to load some pictures here now that I feel like I am back on dial up.

    I just signed up for their emails this week and had a $25 offer for any class. I signed up for the strip paper piecing class. I am just starting to watch it, but so far i am happy with it. I am just getting to the first project, so wont be able to watch again until the weekend.

    I got in on the $19.99 classes at the end of the year. That was the cheapest I saw anything. I've started one class and the others are "waiting for me." That's a nice feature that you can buy on sale and take it as you get to it! I don't know how often they offer THAT price; $29 is certainly better than full price! I have found the class good so far; I had a few questions and got replies quickly. Go for it! If you like it you can wait for a "better" sale for other classes later. I signed up for three classes and then the free BOM!

    I have signed up for several Craftsy classes. I think the first ones, I paid $29 for. I paid $19.99 for the paper piecing class which I probably will not start for some time. I started the Block of the Month class on the 1st. I am going to make a quilt; but am still trying to decide on fabric. I love the Craftsy classes because I have trouble getting to my LQS for classes. I like the fact that I can go back and see lessons over as often as I like. I am machine quilting a quilt that is 122" x 120". Before I started it, I reviewed a Machine Quilting ​lesson. To me, the classes are well worth the money.

    Just goto craftsy.com and ther is a list of classes that you can preview before purchasing. also like stated before sign up for the newsletter and you maybe get a class for less. worth checking out, especially the bom which is free.

    I think the price will go down. I would hold out for $20 since you're not in a hurry. I paid $20 for the one I'm taking when they were all $20. Then I saw an older post that another member posted that they got $20 and buy one get one free! I'd love to take 2 classes for $20 and that's what I'm waiting on now (although since I'm getting a free one, that I got my wish!!)

    I was able to get the classes for $19.99. I like the fact that I can watch anytime and any number of times. Seems they talk alot in the two I am taking.

    I saw on Facebook that their classes were half price today, so I signed up for a sewing class for $15. In my confirmation email, they said all classes are $25. Different browsers showed different prices (some better than $25 and some worse).

    I have take a few classes there as well and love that I can take them when I have the time to do so; I also love that they have daily deals as well. The best part is you can go back and find a section you may have forgotten and refresh your memory, heaven know I need that a lot!! For what you pay it sure is cheaper than driving to a class and taking everything with you, it fits my schedule!! I paid 29.95 for my first class and thought it was well worth the money.

    Oh I am so glad someone asked about this, I had been thinking of taking one of these classes, and wondered how they were. Its good to hear most of you like them, and I agree its alot easier to just watch it, than have to pack everything up to head to the LQS. I may get some when they go on special again for 20.00.

    I have been happy with all the classes and find their prices reasonable - even when I have to pay full price. However, if you "like" them on FaceBook and/or sign up for emails, you will likely get a special. I have seen several offers on FaceBook - but they ended before Christmas and haven't started again.

    I've signed up over the past several months for 4 classes. Haven't had a lot of time, but I love the fact this is totally geared to "my time". I will sign up for every single one pertaining to quilting, lol

    I bought it for $29.95 and the very next day it went on sale for $19.95 for a few days.

    I missed out and lost $10.00 but I am glad that I got the opportunity to get it at 50% off the original price.

    I am not the really savvy Computer whiz but I am looking forward to these classes.

    I have the machine quilting class and it is wonderful. They did have a special at the end of the year where you bought one class for $29 and got a second one free, so they do have sales sometimes. I think if you wait, they will have another sale and if you are not going to use it for a while, whats the hurry, the class is not going away

    I had been wanting to take a sock knitting course, so I bought it for $29.00 and got a second class free. I took the BOM class. I haven't started the course yet, just downloaded the instructions. It's my understanding that the class is there forever, once you have bought it. I hope I am able to follow the sock course. Knitting socks just seems so complicated to me. I'll see how it goes. I watched the first BOM class and it was very easy to understand. Hope the sock class is, too.

    I have both the quilting quickly, strip piecing and the free motion quilting...I think I paid 30.00 for one and 20.00 for the others...well worth the money..I have learned soooo much...

    I just discoverd that Craftsy has a Strip Paper Piecing segment on You Tube. Maybe you can view it and confirm if you like what you see and want to take the class or if You Tube gives you enough information for now.
    Happy Quilting

    I joined to do the BOM. I did the 2 blocks for Jan. I like learning new techniques. The class seems to be very good. I am using up stash and FQ that I have received on shop hops and other freebees.
