Skills learned at the feet of our mothers and grandmothers seem to have "skipped" a generation. Quilting, for example. We don't have the kind of time, the room, or the relatives that live close by to come on over and "put a quilt on" like in my grandmother's time.
These days we have virtual quilting bees, we quilt at home and sometimes we quilt with our checkbooks... (I can help with that! :) quiltscapesquilting.com) And with access to interwebs, we can learn from creative people from one end of the globe to another, day or night. I'm continually amazed at what people around the world are creating!
Right now, there's a cool giveaway going on at my favorite place to learn; Craftsy.com. Sign up for Craftsy and click to enter to win a free class today! >> FREE CRAFTSY CLASS << By the way, you can enter if you're already a member, too!
Just in case you haven't heard about Craftsy, it's where you can share pictures of projects you've crafted, sell your patterns online, and take classes on any crafty subject you can think of! I spend a lot of time on my longarm, quilting for clients, and have my computer set up so I can watch/listen and learn as I work, any time of the day or night! I've taken quilting classes, sewing classes, learned about precision piecing, knitting, and even baking artisan bread! Next? Maybe a cake decorating class.
Can't remember where this quote came from, but I like it. My problem (if it is a problem) is that I want to learn to do everything. Well, ok, everything quilty. And, I want to learn it right now, today! So go ahead, live it up, enter the giveaway, and get your little golden ticket to learn something new. The giveaway is open now through August 14th.
