Since many of you write now and then asking about class sale prices for the hand embroidery classes available on Craftsy, I thought I better give you a Big Heads Up about this weekend’s class sale!
It’s a good one, and if you’ve been contemplating signing up, now’s a good time to do it!
With the Craftsy summer class sale, you’ll find all their classes discounted to at least 50%.
But more to the point for us, there are eight hand embroidery classes available, and they’re all $19.99 each.
I’ve reviewed quite a few of the hand embroidery classes that are available on Craftsy. My absolute favorites are Goldwork Embroidery by Lucy Barter and Stumpwork Raised Embroidery Essentials by Celeste Chalasani. Those are links to my reviews, where I’ve explored the classes in depth for you, in case you want to know more about them.
Why Online Classes?
There are many good reasons for taking online classes, but three in particular stand out:
1. They’re super affordable.
2. You have access to world-class teachers sharing their knowledge and skills with you.
3. You can work at your own pace, returning as often as you want to watch and re-watch the instruction.
You really can’t go wrong with them. Think about it: for less than the price of a book, you’ve got quality video instruction right at your fingertips whenever you want it.
For those of you who have been inquiring about goldwork and stumpwork especially, I highly recommend the goldwork and the stumpwork classes. In both of them, you get the essentials, plus a whole lot more. If you want to expand your stitching skills to goldwork and stumpwork, these classes are great way to get you started.
So, if you’ve been thinking about taking some online embroidery classes this summer, here’s your chance to get the ones you want at a great price! Once you have ’em, they’re yours forever, so do it. Take the plunge! You won’t be sorry!
The links to Craftsy classes are affiliate links, which means I get a small kickback if you sign up for them through Needle ‘n Thread. Every little bit counts!
Coming Up on Needle ‘n Thread
Did I or did I not finish Late Harvest? Well, as of this very moment, writing this article, I have not. But we aren’t at mid-month yet (which was the deadline) and I only have some bead work left. If the weekend goes as planned, next week, you’ll see the Big Finish!
I have a couple designer kits to review for you. I’ll also be unfolding my next follow-along needlework adventures with you soon.
I’m dabbling with possibly the weirdest embroidery project I’ve ever worked. It’s rather…psychedelic, for lack of a better word. I can’t wait to show it to you!
And next week, I’ll have a helper for a few days. Guess what I’m going to do? Yes! I’m organizing! I’ll be out in my workroom, organizing bookshelves and supplies. I plan to take before and after pictures – only because I like to embarrass myself.
For those who are waiting for a personal update, I promise one by the end of the month. I won’t have anything significant to share with you until after June 21st, so look for it then! In the meantime, I’m doing quite well, thanks to all your kindness, solicitude, encouragement, prayers, and support!
I hope you have a terrific weekend!
