With so many people asking “what do I do while my spouse is deployed” most answers are “stay busy, get a hobby, take up a craft“. I thought this was a perfect time to introduce Craftsy to you. I personally, took up crafts the 1st deployment, making hair bows, clips and head bands. Also crocheting a camo blanket for my husband.
Craftsy is the fastest growing online community for Crafters – with over 500,000 monthly unique visitors, having just launched in May 2011.
This rapid growth results from two primary offerings which Craftsy users love:
1) Terrific online classes from amazing instructors for beginning, intermediate and advanced quilters, knitters, crocheters, sewists, jewelry makers, and other crafters.
2) Astonishingly good deals on crafting supplies: organic yarn, lovely fabrics and fat quarters from top designers, high quality needles, etc…
The Craftsy Block of the Month is a completely free, year-long online class instructed by expert quilter, Amy Gibson. There are 12 installments, each one posted on the first day of every month. The first 10 months/installments teach our students two new exciting blocks (brand new designs or funky spins on traditional blocks). The last two months are dedicated to finishing the quilt. At the end of the class, our students will have full-size and one-of-a-kind quilts. Like all of our classes, students can view it whenever it’s convenient for them, and can watch them however many times they’d like. It’s filmed in high-definition, and it’s fully interactive—students can ask Amy questions as they go.
