Well what a month it was! If you took advantage of the Craftsy All-Access Pass for October, how are you doing? Are your eyes bleeding from watching all those videos? Did you stay up late every night to make sure you didn't miss a thing and then oversleep? How has your sewing knowledge expanded? Did you get to see and watch everything you wanted?
For me it was epic! I had friends staying so didn't get to watch nearly as much as I really wanted, but I made great use of the 1.5x speed feature and was able to preview a lot of the classes I had on my wishlist.
It was such a useful thing to be able to do, because I was then able to shortlist those classes that I really want to give my full attention to when I get the time, and keep them on my wishlist, but at the same time, I was also able to see what wasn't really suitable. So in the end I saved money by not buying classes that weren't right for me.
You know that I sew a lot of clothes and bags, and have only ever done a couple of small quilts, but I really love how quilts look and want to know more. So I had all these quilting classes in my wishlist that look so dreamy. Using the All-Access feature I was able to preview so many of the quilting lessons and quickly determine that many of them were far too advanced for me, I really only know the very basics and need to start with the beginner lessons first even if those amazing complicated quilts are what my heart really desires.
Anyway, if I suddenly got the quilting bug and spent hours sewing tiny pieces of fabric together I would never have the time to write any articles for this site or create any more free sewing patterns – best to leave my quilting dreams for another time… I've been putting together a Pinterest Board of gorgeous Ocean Quilts and will hope to see something at least vaguely like one of these in my sewing future.
So sort out your wishlist, get all the classes in there that you want to have permanent access to. The last day to preview all the classes you are interested in is today and I have heard from my secret inside source at Craftsy that they aren't planning to go to any kind of a subscription service any time soon – this was just a one off. Because guess what's coming up!
Yes BLACK FRIDAY – the traditional day for stampedes and knife-fights in the stores over the latest flat screen TV or phone. The holiday and shopping season will soon be upon us and traditionally Craftsy has their best sale of the year starting on or just before Black Friday – 27th November.
We may be seeing such deals as all classes at $19.99 or less. Or maybe even better? Fingers crossed. So once your all-access pass expires make sure to get all of your favorite classes into your wishlist ready for the best Craftsy Classes sale of the year. At least we know the classes aren't going to sell out. See you there!
