    Started a Craftsy Class - I think I see more in my future

    I started a free motion quilting class on Craftsy, just had to try it out once I got to thinking about being able to learn here at home, no need to rush home from work, load up my machine and supplies to go someplace across town, or perhaps the town 60 miles away ( saves lots of gas $$ this way) do it at my pace and go back to it as needed to catch what I may have missed the first time. I'm only part way through, but think it will be well worth the $ all things considered! Here's a bit of practice - Anyone else taking these classes?

    I have taken or am taking several Craftsy classes and I really love them. I can learn at my own speed, play it over and over until I get it, and can take the class in my jammies! lol

    I think you've got a great start at becoming really good at this! I haven't tried this much yet...guess I'm chicken. lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I forgot to say that I think you have done a great job! One of the nice things about theses classes are that we can make our boo-boos in private, and practice, practice, practice with no time restraints...and we gain confidence. Keep going, you are doing great!!!

    I've visited their site several times and window shopped their classes, but have yet to commit. Your "practice" piece is wonderful. It looks like your and your Sunshine are going to be a great team! Thanks for sharing.

    Great work! I bought a class before Christmas, but as others have said, haven't had time to sit down and do it. Maybe after this week, I will have the time. I really want to do this and hope I progress as well as yoou did! Keep up the good work!
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    that is beautiful. I just signed up for a class on rag quilts. I have so many strips, etc. that if I don't use them soon they are going to explode out of my stash. Glad to hear you are enjoying your class. I agree with you about the classes I have signed up for, the workshops, I am not a quick learner and I find I am always behind with noone to guide me so I decided to try one of these. The only thing I had to lose was 20$!

    I 'signed up' for the two free classes - the machine maintenance and the blocks classes. Then signed up for the 'Quilting Quickly II' class for new ideas. Am thinking about signing up for the machine quilting class this weekend as the classes are on sale for $19.99. Haven't had the time yet to go through each class, though - family coming this weekend through the 4th. Will probably do next weekend when things quiet down again....great resources!
