I’m SEW Craftsy!

Thanks to Sew Cal Gal and the Golden Quilter Awards Giveaway, I WON a free class from Craftsy…an online Crafting Class! 

Now I have often wondered about these classes…How do they work?? 

SEW.. off I went to their ‘school’…Talk about class choices!!  They offer over 50 different craft classes…YIKES!!  Thank goodness you can see a snippet of each class, which helps to narrow down the one for you!  I finally went with the free motion class,  ‘Beyond Basic Machine Quilting’…even though I haven’t mastered the basics..:o)


These classes are great…there are about 10 –15 different sessions…you can pick-up or re-watch any episode, at any time and this particular class will be available to me FOREVER!!  I can watch it a million times…if I chose to do sew!!   Ann Petersen is a great teacher…she goes slow and makes it look VERY easy!  Also if I ever  have a question or a concern, I just raise my hand and Ann will be there to answer it! (actually I have to email her…just seeing if you are paying attention….)  Looks like Ann Petersen will NEVER retire!

Check out their Crafty Site…you may see a class that you are interested in!!  As for me, I have some sandwiches to make…some fabric sandwiches!  I’m thinking that if I keep a stack of sandwiches beside my sewing machine, Ann and I can spend a little quilty time together…whenever the urge hits!!

Thanks SEW CAL GAL!!  I’m loving this win!!

Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. I too have taken a class through Craftsy and love it. I took the Free Motion with Wendy Butler Burns and she as well teaches a great class. I'm going to check out this site as well. Congrats on your win.

  2. Congratulations, that will be a fun prize to use.
    You will have to let us know how you like it.


  3. I, too, won a Craftsy class and have been wondering what to sign up for. I was thinking about free-motion class, since I really want to learn how to do that.

  7. I've taken two of Craftsy's classes. I took Machine Quilting and Quickly Quilting 2. I was very happy with both. I'm also following the free BOM classes through Craftsy.
