Craftsy Unlimited

OMG! Craftsy has a new program called “Craftsy Unlimited.” Now you can have access to ALL the classes on their site for only $120 a year. (They also have a monthly subscription for $14.99/month.)

Here’s what you get with the annual subscription:

  • Unlimited access to 3,000 hours of expert videos
  • Exclusive new videos released weekly
  • Experience 17 crafting categories
  • Be a part of a one-of-a-kind creative community
  • 600+ of the world’s leading creative experts
  • Free US shipping on

So I have to admit, I’m thinking about jumping in. I love watching their classes, and now that I have a TV in my sewing studio, it’s so easy to simply start a video and watch while I’m sewing or organizing (yeah, I do a lot of that….how do things get so messy inbetween my sewing sessions?)

A few months back I signed up for an annual subscription for my Cricut Maker, and have been using that quite a bit. I feel good about getting my money’s worth with this sort of thing. I justify all this because I don’t get many magazines any more, so this is just the new magazine subscription I suppose!

If you do sign up, let me know how it works out for you. I’d love to hear about your favorite classes.

Happy crafting!


Free Valentine’s Pattern

How about a fun little free pattern to make for Valentine’s Day?

It’s that time of year when candy dishes are filled with conversation hearts- the perfect candies to show that special someone how you’re feeling and also the perfect inspiration for a fun Valentine’s Day quilt.

This Be Mine quilt is a fun throw size quilt to make, and using Cotton + Steel’s Ombre Pigment fabric is a great way to create an ombre effect with the hearts. This is also the time to break out or build up your stash of black and white quilting cotton. You can also use solid fabric for the background, but the scrappiness of the black and white fabric is a lot of fun.

Have fun! And happy Valentine’s Day!
