I try not to get too smarmy in this blog, but this time it’s for a good cause.
Today through March 13, Craftsy is celebrating National Craft Month in a novel way: anyone who signs up for a class gets entered in a contest to win $1000 towards the craft-based charity of their choice. Knitted Knockers springs to mind. Ditto Halos of Hope… but it’ll be your choice!
Teachers who bring in new students are also given a chance to win. If I win, I promise to give my proceeds to my derby league, the Sick Town Derby Dames, aka Willamette Roller Derby. We’ve been struggling through a rough patch lately, what with the need for expensive repairs to our rink. Any extra cash could really help us complete the repairs, get skating again, and re-start our junior derby program for girls under 18. (Bonus! We’re a 501(c)3 non-profit, so donations are tax-deductible. Contact me if you’re feeling generous!)
So taking a Craftsy class is a win-win for everybody, right? A chance for you to win for your charity, a chance for me to support my derby league. And the classes are awesome! Check out the full list.
Over the next couple weeks, I’ll post highlights of classes I’d like to take, one from each of Craftsy’s 16 categories, to my Facebook page. Who knows? I might tempt you with a class you’d never considered.
