When I was in TNNA last summer I met Stefanie Japel for the first time and we had so much fun chatting. I have such admiration for her work it was overwhelming to actually meet her in person! She was telling me about a new website that she worked for called Craftsy. Of course I promptly forgot all about it and only rediscovered it recently. If you are a multi-crafter this site will be heaven for you. It crosses over many different crafting lines (knitting, crochet, embroidery, quilting, sewing, jewelry, felting and paper crafts to name a few). It started out as a place to show your project as well as doing online classes and workshops. In the last few weeks they’ve opened up a new pattern section. I was hesitating about whether I wanted to take the many, many hours to list my patterns in a new venue but after exploring for a while I really wanted to be part of the site. I like the multidisciplinary approach and I think the way the patterns are listed are really clean and slick. So I’ve started the uploading job, it’s not totally finished yet but hopefully by the end of the week I’ll be there! Some take a look at my page.
(BTW – thanks to DH I just figured out how to ‘snip’ from a webpage to get the above screen capture!)
My class in May at This Is Knit (seamless knitting – moving beyond the raglan) has sold out in record time. I know there is a waiting list if you want to be added. There are still spaces at my Hedgehog Fibres Short Row class, scroll down this page to book your spot.
