Have you ever taken part in a sewing series? A lot of quilters will be familiar with a Block of the Month Club where a new quilt block pattern is released each month until at the end of the year, you have all of your blocks to sew up the large finished quilt. There are a few Bag of the Month Clubs around and one we’ve been following is currently running at Creative Bug.
If you’ve ever taken a video class on Craftsy, then you’ll be a little familiar with the concept of Creative Bug. Except here you don’t buy each class separately, you pay a fixed monthly fee for access to ALL of their classes. At just $4.95 per month or $50 for the whole year, we think it’s excellent value. There are presently more than 600 classes and new ones being released all the time.
For the most part, it’s content is a bit different to the sort of classes you’ll find on Craftsy. It’s more arty, more varied subjects and less concentrated on expert and advanced level skills, more creative and fun-level classes, more smaller projects that won’t take a month to finish and perfect! We think you’ll enjoy the variety there. You can find classes on:
Bag of the Month classes
