Yeah, the plan was to hit the ground running at my new business location when I got back from Vietnam. In one of my last few days in Vietnam, I came across a job opportunity that was too good to ignore. I applied, I interviewed, and I took the job. I love Craftsy. I love the community, I love the people who work there, and the classes are amazing. I’m mostly self-taught on everything, and while that works, I feel like a newly enlightened (quilting) soul. Unfortunately, working full time and continuing to teach motorcycle riding on the weekends didn’t leave me any time for putting my new skills to work.
I’m back at the shop full time, starting on Tuesday, April 30th. While I’m not at Craftsy full time anymore, I’m still associated in many ways. One of those is as a Craftsy affiliate. I love Craftsy, and I want you to love Craftsy too. If you follow the link on my home page or any of the banners on my website, you can sign up as a member of the community for free. While you’re there, look around for classes of interest or patterns for your next project.
Craftsy isn’t just quilting. Before I worked there, I purchased a workshop to make my own lip balms, salves and body butters and another to make cheese. Perfect Pizza at Home is a free class (there are several great free classes) Craftsy has some amazing cake decorating classes as well. Some are for the home hobbyist; others require steel rods and band saws (yeah, cake decorating).
So please, if you aren’t already a fan of Craftsy, follow the link below and check it out. You’ll love it. I promise.
