Get on their mailing list. Sometimes they offer free weekends or even weeks so you can try the classes out, but you have to be on the mailing list to be notified.

Thanks for the information; I will do that right now.

I really love watching Christina Cameli's classes on free motion quilting because she has a very calming manner and she's very clear in her instructions. I especially love how she teaches you to quilt a design around a corner. I can't remember which class it was from (one where she's having you quilt inside strips and wedges to learn designs?) but she shows you how to space out the design and then plan where to make the turn. It was really helpful!

Thanks to all who chimed in.
I have all of Christina Cameli's classes. I love her calm manner.
I have some others mentioned but not all. Lots to think about, thanks!

The one on borders sounds good and others.

For art quilters, Renegade Thread Play with Melinda Bula is excellent. She's clear, entertaining and an excellent instructor.

I couldn't find Renegade Thread Play by Melinda Bula on Bluprint. But I did find her on youtube. And I agree...she's very good!

I have 3 coupons to use too. I've watched all of the suggestions above, and they are all very good. And yes, I spend way too much time online. I've also watched lots of drawing/painting, sewing, serging, baking and cooking videos. All after 10pm too.

You can watch all those classes and more without using your coupons, and save the coupons for the classes you want to keep forever. Ones you want to keep referring back to.

I guess it depends on where your interests are. There are some really good videos on decorative stitching, embroidery, fabric dyeing, serging and sewing techniques....
and also some great cooking, cake decorating, painting & drawing classes too. And photography & woodworking etc. they even have dancing classes.

What would you like to learn?

I'm looking for something new. I really don't see anything that hasn't been there since it was Craftsy. Almost all of them are for beginners. I don't see many that go very far beyond that. Even the classes listed as 'intermediate' level classes are geared more toward beginners.

It does seem that they don't get much new stuff these days, doesn't it?
I'm going to look around and see what I think I'll want to keep.

Hello. So glad to see your post. I keep seeing bluprint ads pop up on me. Is the cost of the service worth it? There’s so much free content on YouTube.
Thanks

Mazo- I got an "offer I couldn't refuse" A year of Bluprint for $69.00 plus 12 free forever classes and a quilt kit. So I get to keep all those classes no matter what. And a percentage off each order and free ship.
I don't ever pay full price for Bluprint. I wait for a sale like the above.
I have to say I'm not crazy about their fabrics though. I like their thread and other notions. They do have good sales. I got a Supreme Slider for a song! Also yarn for knitting.
