Today is my stop on the fabulous Craftsy Instructor Blog Hop. If you’ve been following along on the stops you may notice that I’m a bit different. I’m a crochet instructor while all my fellow Blog Hop hostesses are sewers and quilters. One of the fabulous things about Craftsy is that it gives you the ability to dive deeply into your favorite craft or skill while exploring new and exciting things you can learn in other areas. I want to share a little about my Craftsy class with you, tell you about my crafty resolutions for 2016, and share details on a special offer.
Seaming Crochet shares my secrets for fantastic finishing. By the time you get to seaming, you’ve already put a ton of work and energy into your crochet project. It’s the finishing, and particularly the seaming, that can make your project look fabulous…or like a disaster. I will teach you the techniques you need to achieve great results with basic pieces, colorwork, lace, specialty stitch patterns and more.
You’ll learn my connect-and-weave method for seaming crochet lace, as well as my tricks for seaming crochet colorwork. Besides teaching you over 7 different seaming techniques with variations, I also show you how to figure out the best seaming technique for each project. I had a lot of fun filming this class, and my students are having a great time and thrilled with their great seaming results.
So what are my crafting plans for 2016? This is what I’m hoping to accomplish:
- Learn rigid headle weaving and make a scarf.
- Finish my first quilt top and maybe actually turn it into a quilt. I’m not sure yet whether I’ll hand quilt it or quilt it with my sewing machine.
- English paper piece a matza cover with some decorative bead embroidery.
- Knit my daughter a sweater for her bat mitzvah. I’ll be using the Seaming Handknits class tips to get fab results.
- And maybe, just maybe, this will be the year I make paneer cheese from scratch.
