I know, I’m sure you’re thinking oh great, she’s reviewing a sewing video class, big deal, I’ll just skip this in my reader today and move onto a more exciting post. Stop!! Really, I think you’d be surprised about the class just like I was.
Shelly asked me to hop on the blog tour for her Kids Romper Revamp class on Craftsy. What’s this’s Craftsy? and who’s Shelly you ask? Well, Craftsy seems like the next big thing. There are a couple similar based companies, but I think this concept is incredible for sewing!!! Hold on and I’ll tell you more in a sec.
This Shelly lady is none other than the owner of Figgy’s Patterns. Seriously love Shelly. Even if she hadn’t asked me to do this I would have purchased the class anyway. She’s that cool, and her style is even cooler. I absolutely love her patterns. And the thing is, she knows a ton about sewing for kids, a ton.
Okay, now onto the Kids Romper Revamp class review. I’ve never taken an online class before, although my friend Vanessa also has a class offered, so I’ve heard of Craftsy. Signing up was quick and painless, and looking around at all the other classes was really amazing, there are a lot of great ones, plus more coming all the time, so that’s exciting.
This is what I think is the best part of an online class, the incredible amount of detail they put into every step/lesson. Not only do you get the pattern (which itself is worth the cost of the class) by the way you can purchase the class for 50% off with this link: Kids Romper Revamp Discount
but you can watch the videos anytime, at any pace. Plus there’s really great features like being able to ask a specific question and have Shelly answer it for you. Perfect. The one thing that I thought of as I watched the videos was that this is an amazing opportunity for anyone who is new to garment sewing. Or even sewing in general. Shelly gives some amazing tips and tricks that you can only learn from someone who’s as experienced as she is (there’s a great one using a bobby pin, and you’ll just have to take the class to find out about it! I’m such a tease). I learned a bunch of great tricks and I wasn’t expecting that! So if you didn’t learn to sew from your mom or grandma or dad or whoever, and you got the sewing bug and want to devour as much information as you can, I think you have to take this class. Really.
So you get a free pattern, two actually, it includes a dress version of the romper, unlimited access to all the lessons, answers to any questions you have, and the class feels like you’re sitting right there with Shelly just absorbing all her knowledge. Great deal. So here’s the discount code link again: Kids Romper Revamp Discount
Thanks Shelly, I was super super impressed by this and plan to take more classes!!
