Memorial Day weekend is traditionally the kick-off to summer – a great time to gear up for fun times ahead and a chance to start on some summer sewing.
But of course it’s so much more than that. It’s really a time to honor our veterans and remember those brave men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces and supported the cause of freedom.
You can honor our veterans and kick off your summer by signing up for a Craftsy class this weekend. From now through Monday, when you sign up for an online class, Craftsy will donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit a veterans’ organization. Select classes will be on sale up to 60% off!
I took a quick look to see which quilting classes were on sale and there was quite a good selection to choose from. Here are a few that look interesting:
Pictorial Techniques by Wendy Butler Burns. I met her at Road to California 2 years ago and she was full of energy! This one’s on my to-do list at 25% off.
Design It, Quilt It by Cindy Needham – 25% off. I signed up for this class the last time it was on sale and it’s one of my favorites. It includes an excellent basting tutorial, too!
Big Techniques From Small Scraps by Sarah Fielke combines traditional techniques with fresh design. Fun – and 50% off!
Stupendous Stitching by Carol Ann Waugh explores of embroidery designs, decorative sewing machine stitches, couching and binding. It’s 33% off.
Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine – I can’t get enough domestic machine quilting classes! It’s 38% off through Monday.
The Machine Embroidered Quilt with Eilleen Roche looks like another fun class where you add embroidery elements to embellish your quilt. It’s 38% off, too
Civil War Blocks by Kaye England – learn precise piecing methods and make 12 traditional blocks, inspired by the stories of strong women of the Civil War era – 50% off!
Quick-Strip Paper Piecing with Peggy Martin – now that sounds like something I could use! Another one at 38% off. That’s kind of a weird discount amount but it’s better than paying full price. 🙂
I make it a point to only sign up for Crafsty classes when they are on sale and so far I’ve been impressed with how often that happens. Click here to see the rest of the classes that are on sale this weekend. Happy sewing!
