A Gift Of Learning

The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.   --Mortimer Adler

While SewCalGal highly encourages quilters to continue to learn and improve their skills by way of taking classes at their local quilt shop, at quilt shows, through books, as well as various online sources, I'm also passionate about taking classes at Craftsy.  I've found them to be well organized, fun, flexible and priced to offer an exceptional value.  Thus, when I heard that they have a special offer for purchasing Craftsy Gift Certificates, to give as gifts (or to use yourself), of course I wanted to share this information with you.

Right now you can Gift Any Craftsy Class and save big while you're doing it! Want to give someone a Craftsy class, but not sure which one to pick? With the Craftsy "Gift Any Class" cards, you can buy a loved one any Craftsy class of their choosing for $30! It has never been easier to give the gift of crafting fun!

Gift 1 Craftsy class for $30 (save up to $30)
Gift 2 Craftsy classes for $55 (save up to $65)
Gift 3 Craftsy classes for $75 (save up to $105)

• Gifted classes never expire
• Give one, two, or three Craftsy classes
• Deliver on any date (up to three months in advance)

SewCalGal is a big fan of Craftsy. And I became an Affilate of Craftsy as I wanted to be an advocate and encourage quilters and crafters to also enjoy the benefits of Craftsy.  Great classes, great values.
While I do pick up a small percentage kickback (your class fee is the same) for those that sign up by way of clicking through to Craftsy from my site and signing up for a class at Crafty, or purchasing an item from their store, the small fee that I may earn as an Affiliate goes towards helping to offset expenses of SewCalGal shipping prizes.  So, I want to thank those that sign up for Craftsy classes by way of first visiting SewCalGal.  Based on the funds raised I can afford to host giveaways and contests, throughout the year, where I also need to ship directly to the winner (including International winners).  Postage expenses are  high and increasing rapidly, so SewCalGal needed to pursue efforts of becoming an affiliate to continue to host giveaways. While I've had to reduce the number of giveaways I do host, I'm hopeful that your support and the affiilate route will help to better supplement shipping costs in 2014, so I can host more giveaways and contests.

Inspirational Quotes on learning:

The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as youre learning, youre not old.  -- Rosalyn S. Yalow

When your learning is extensive and profound, always feel that the more you learn, the less you know.  -- Unknown

Learning never exhausts the mind.  -- Leonardo da Vinci
