Craft Month

So it’s National Craft month, there are a lot of celebrations throughout the year but I think craft is well worth celebrating! Craft for me is primarily about knitting (due to the fact that there’s only 24 hours in the day!) but I do love to learn new skills. Living in the country in Ireland with several children in school I’ve found online classes the easiest way to learn. I can drop in and out and take notes in the spots where I know I’ll want to go back to.

crafty monthAs many of you know I teach several classes for Craftsy which have got a really nice format for learning (and teaching on). The classes are professionally recorded and edited, and the layout makes it easy to ask and answer questions. If you haven’t tried one out I’d suggest giving it a go!

If you’d like to try one of my classes here are some links for 50% off:

Essential Short Row Techniques
Sweater Surgery
Celtic Cables

Anyone who buys classes over the first 2 weeks of March will be in with a chance to donate $1000 to an craft based charity of their choice. (Plus I’ll be in with a chance to win a surprise as well :-))

I know a lot of you out there are very skilled knitters and may not want any knitting classes. There is however a whole range of crafts covered; from jewelry making and gardening to drawing and some fantastic cooking classes.

This one in particular has my mouth watering; all the boys love Mexican food so I wouldn’t mind upping my game a little!

Although I think that this might make a wonderful birthday present for my oldest boy, as he’s rather anime crazy!

So any new crafty or skill you’d like to build during crafty month? Have fun learning!
