I apologize for popping in unannounced on a Sunday afternoon, but this particular information is time sensitive, so I wanted to let you know today, so you can be ready tomorrow.
How would you like to have free access to all of Craftsy’s online hand embroidery classes for one day?
Tomorrow, September 4th, is All You Can Watch Day on Craftsy, which means you can access any of their online classes for free all day long, from your computer or from the browser on your tablet.
Now, I know you probably won’t spend the Whole Day streaming online embroidery classes, but it’s a great way to explore thoroughly any particular Craftsy classes that interest you.
Read on, and I’ll tell you what you have to do today, to get in on it tomorrow!

However, if you’re not registered, read the information, and then register on Craftsy today. It just requires basic information – no payment information or anything like that.

3. Registered users will get an email from Craftsy by 12:01 am Eastern Time on Monday morning, and you’ll have access to all their classes for the next 24 hours.

There are some restrictions (explained on the information page), including that it’s view-only (you can’t download class materials, PDFs, and the like).
But hey, it’s a great way to explore full classes for free!
