Hello Everyone,

Wow... it has been a month since I posted last.  This move and getting settled is taking me forever.  But I think I am now getting into some sort of groove... I hope!!!

(My view as I sit writing this blog post)

We have been enjoying being closer to family and we ended up taking some time for ourselves over the last weekend and visited Las Vegas!  It was my first time and it was a blast!  I will share more on that in another blog post.  There was fabric involved too!


(New York, New York in Vegas)

But, I bet you are wondering why I said Happy Birthday??  Well, one year ago this week, Craftsy launched my very first class with them!  It was an exciting time and still continues to be.  It was so much fun coordinating with Quiltworx/Judy Niemeyer and Craftsy to plan and come up with this fantastic exclusive online class!  

It still amazes me... every day I have new students in the class and we are getting set to cross the 3,000 mark of students enrolled.  SOOOOOOO excited about that!  The class brings you through all the techniques that you need to learn and use to make this beautiful block and turn it into a quilt, pillow, bag, runner, or whatever you choose.


Many of the students in the class that have wanted to make a Judy Niemeyer quilt have used this class as a stepping stone to make some of her more difficult patterns that they have fallen in love with.  It also serves as a spring board to take a class with any of the Certified Instructors!  


So in celebration of this one year "Birthday", I would like to giveaway 1 FREE Class!!!  How do you enter, you ask???

1.  Just comment below with which Judy Niemeyer quilt you would like to make first or next. (Make sure you leave an e-mail address to contact you, if not, another winner will be chosen) You can see her patterns here.  That is if you don't already have a few lined up already... 😉😉

That is it!!!

BUT to continue the celebration, I would also like to give you the opportunity to join the class at 50% off!!!  Just click here to get the class for half off and see a little video of what the class is all about before you join in on the fun!


The giveaway CLOSES on August 31, 2016.  I will draw a winner on September 1, 2016!

Best of luck!

Until Next Time...
