Marly had a special sit down at the Craftsy studios in Denver today with the folks from Craftsy, Josh Scott and John Levisay! And what a fun time! We learned so much about Craftsy, the background, the inspiration, the implementation, and now…the BOOM.
Craftsy has made a huge impression on the crafting world, in a very short period of time. Not only do they offer classes in crochet and knitting, but cake decorating, food crafting, holiday, home and garden, jewelry, paper crafts, quilting, sewing, spinning and weaving! (Whew!) Plus, they have a great shop where you can search for that perfect yarn, or fabric, as well as there is a pattern store for independent designers to sell their patterns.
Josh and John broke Marly’s standing record of prizes given away in one podcast, by giving away not 1, not 3, not 5, but SEVEN free online Craftsy classes to lucky callers!! What on earth to do with all those classes?? (New crafty obsession anyone?)
The even more fun thing is, Josh and John aren’t done yet, and are still giving away two MORE classes! One via Marly’s facebook page (click here), and one right here on MarlyBird.com.
For the giveaway on Marly’s facebook page, leave a comment on her page, and she will be picking that winner on Friday (3/22/13).For the giveaway here on MarlyBird.com, leave a comment here with the keyword from today’s podcast. The winner will be chosen in three weeks.
As we all know, Marly has 3 classes on Craftsy, and they are listed here for you, as well as a library of patterns, and that link is listed below for you as well.
