Craftsy Class Giveaway

Crayon Roll-up Bag @ponderthepath

My first memory of sewing was when I was probably 6 or 7 and my mom let me make a pot holder on the sewing machine. I don’t know how well the pot holder turned out, but I do know that I have always loved to sew.

In high school I took home economics and learned to read patterns and sew garments. I didn’t particularly enjoy sewing with patterns because I always felt they were quite tedious and tended to do things the hard way. Really, it was most likely that I was impatient and wanted to be done with the project.

Last year I was able to take a couple of classes from Craftsy. Craftsy offers all sorts of classes (sewing, quilting, baking, knitting, crocheting, cake decorating), but the 2 classes I have taken both had to do with sewing garments.

Tiered Skirts @ponderthepath

The A-line skirt class teaches you how to create skirts from scratch, meaning you make the pattern as well. Once I took this class, I felt like I really understood the process of making skirts so much better. I thought this might stifle my creativity, but it actually allowed me to become more creative. Now that I understand the basic structure of creating a skirt from scratch, I am able to modify the process and create the skirts I want.

I am also in the process of taking the Couture Dress class that teaches you how to create a dress muslin and then modify it for the perfect fitting. It is much more of a challenge, but I have really learned so much from this class. The lady that teaches the class, Susan Khalje, is one of the most talented seamstresses in the country. Not only that, she has a great gift for teaching so that you don’t feel overwhelmed. In other words, she makes it look easy!

Firecracker Quilt @ponderthepath

I love sharing projects that I have made here on my blog, but I realize that many of you would love to make similar projects but don’t know how to sew. I would love to sit with each of you and teach you the things I have learned over the years, but it just isn’t possible. I figured the next best thing would be a class from Craftsy!

In order to enter, visit Craftsy, take a look at the classes they offer and tell me which one you would like to take. Leave a comment letting me know which one.

You can also share this giveaway {pretty please} with everyone you know or follow me for additional entries.

    I bought some knit fabric that I really liked and it has been sitting on a shelf for quite some time now. So not only would I like to take the class “Sewing Fashion Knits”, I need to take the class.

    I’d love to take serging for beginners. Thank you for the giveaway!

    I’m a bit of a Craftsy junkie. It’s so hard to decide what class. I’ve enrolled in some quilting and serger classes already so I’d have to pick Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing since I don’t know much about paper piecing.

    I would go for the couture class with Susan Khalje as well! I’ve only heard good things about it. About just about anything that came from her.
