No FO?!

Since I'm concentrating on my two October KAL projects, I don't have any FOs to share this week. I can't even think of the last time this has happened! Luckily, I have a consolation prize to offer you: today only, there is a huge flash sale happening over on Craftsy!
From time to time, I blog about Craftsy: the classes I've taken, the yarn I've bought, etc. I usually just assume that everyone knows about Craftsy since I've been obsessed with it since its early days, but for those of you who are just now discovering it, today seems like a good time to give a more formal introduction: in a nutshell, Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a pattern marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supply shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a project section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. They have over two million members, and they aren't just focused on the world of knitting and crochet: categories range from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.

Why do I love their online classes so much? With Craftsy, I have 24/7 access to a host of knowledgeable instructors in the comfort of my own home. I can learn at my own pace, re-watch segments whenever I need a refresher, and if I ever get stuck, I can post questions in the course platform for the instructor or my classmates to answer. It's win-win!

Online learning is a great alternative to on-location craft classes, especially for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house; Craftsy's classes are also much cheaper than the average in-depth workshop. If you still need convincing, you can check out my reviews of Craftsy classes or check out one of their FREE mini-courses!

Thanks for stopping by this week - if you were hoping for some FO Friday inspiration, come back next week or visit the Tami's Amis blog.

Have a crafty weekend!
