I’m delighted to tell you that my second Craftsy.com class has launched! I’ve known the date for weeks, but was sworn to secrecy until the launch was official. You can watch the trailer for the class here and the link below will bring you right to the class page on Craftsy where you can purchase the class with a 50% discount – my thanks to you for following my blog and/or web site.

50% Class Discount

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the folks at Craftsy. They are professionals who are committed to producing the very best on-line learning experiences. It’s a lot of work – to be sure! – but the end results are so well worth it. You’ll feel like you are sitting right next to me at the machine because there won’t be anybody else blocking your view or asking all the questions. You might be wearing your pajamas and it might even be 3:00 AM, but I won’t mind a bit! That is the beauty of on-line learning! If you have questions, just click and type and I’ll get right back to you…..though probably not until my day begins.

While the first class was aimed at new (or returning) machine knitters (almost 4,000 of them so far!), the new class is focused on three very specific areas: using the garter bar, knitting intarsia and working entrelac with holding position. They are all skills that will help move you forward with your machine and instill new confidence in what it – and YOU – can do!

Over the weekend I drew the names of five lucky blog subscribers who have each won a free class. (One from the U.K., 1 from Scandinavia, 1 Canadian and 2 from the U.S. Quite the diverse group of machine knitters!)

I plan to do more drawings this year as a thank you to those of you who have subscribed to my blog. In fact, on May 30th I will be drawing three more names. Those winners will each receive a free copy of my book, Handmade for the Garden. So, if you haven’t actually subscribed to this blog, make sure you subscribe (over on the right where it says “subscribe”) before the next drawing so you will be eligible to win!I won’t share your information with anyone else, but you will get an email telling you whenever I post a new video or blog.

Hope you all enjoy the new class!

    This does look intriguing. I may have to start machine knitting again.

    I have enjoyed the first part of your new Craftsy Class. I have been waiting patiently since you announced it. Thank you for such a clear explanation of the Garter Bar. I relish each section and practice that session before moving on to the next. I truly appreciate all the work it must require to put together a class like this, I just can’t tell you how much inspiration you have provided.

      Wow! What a great endorsement, Nancy! Thanks so much – it means a lot to me to know that the material is really helping you!

    Can’t wait.

    I also took the first craftsy class and loved it. Will be looking forward to doing this class as well. Thanks so much for doing a second class. Now I just need to splurge and buy the machine. I cant decide on which one to buy.
    Thanks again,
    Melody Adams

      Start with an LK150 – it is inexpensive and will take you a long way and help educate you to what you want in a machine later on.

    Looking forward to watch the new class.
