Craftsy Celebrations National Craft Month - Sponsored Giveaway

Get Crafty and Be Cre8tive this month.  Create something new.  Learn a new technique.  Take a class.

As a Craftsy affiliate, I’ve been invited to host a giveaway for a Craftsy class. Read on to learn how to enter.  I also want to let you know that as an affiliate I receive a little bit of money when you click thru my site and register for a class at Craftsy, or buy something from their online store.  I signed up to be an affiliate at Craftsy for two reasons: 1) I thoroughly enjoyed taking classes with Craftsy and was recommending them to everyone on my own, 2) I needed to find a way to supplement postage expenses for when I ship prizes for giveaways and contests.  So far, my Craftsy Affiliate doesn't cover  all of my blog expenses, but it is helping to cover costs for US postal fees and periodically international postage fees.  So, I want to thank those that do click thru my site to sign up for classes at Craftsy or purchase items from their online store.


EXPERT TEACHERS:  Carol Doak, Cindy Needham, Nora McMeeking, Joan Wolfrom, Camile Roskelley, Kimberly Einmo, Leah Day, Angela Walters and many more talented experts.
FREE CLASSES: Craftsy offers free classes for a variety of topics (e.g. quilting, sewing, embroidery, gardening, cooking, photography, etc) and they are continually adding more classes.  
FLEXIBILITY:  Once you sign up for a class at Craftsy you can complete the lessons when it is convenient for you and repeat them as often as you like.  You can even view a class on your tablet, or smartphone. 
VALUE: While I still enjoy hands on classes with an instructor at my local quilt shop and quilt shows,  there is an amazing value by taking online classes at Craftsy.  

And don't forget Worldwide Quilting Day is Saturday, March 15th.

Consider taking a class at Craftsy on Worldwide Quilting Day.

Did I Mention A Giveaway?  Craftsy is sponsoring a free class to a follower of SewCalGal.  To enter, all you need to do is click the link below and if you don't already have a Craftsy account, you'll need to sign up for a FREE account.  And, while you are at Craftsy be sure to check out all the free classes at Craftsy.  

This giveaway is open through Sunday, March 30th.  Craftsy will randomly select one lucky winner and send them an email.  SewCalGal will work with Craftsy to be able to update this post to share insights on who that lucky winner is.

Update:  Craftsy randomly selected the lucky winner out of 170 entries and they have sent an email to the winner, with info on how to redeem their prize for a free class at Craftsy.  Congratulations to Mary T.
