Online Courses coming soon!

I can’t believe it’s actually happening.  Thanks to everyones support and encouragement I have taken a giant leap.  (OK, it’s giant for me)  As many of you may know I’m not exactly what you would call a “techy”.  As a matter of fact I really struggle with this aspect of sharing my content with everyone.  You see I don’t come from a technology background and sometime I feel totally out of it.   There are times when I listen to people speaking about their sites and use terms like SEO traffic optimization, shopping-cart,  updates,  SSL, etc… to me it might as well be Greek.   I must admit that technology has always kinda scared me.

I don’t know if it’s part of getting older and being used to old school methods.  For example I still actually mail people letters.  Seriously, I love getting a letter in the mail.  Greeting cards are even better.  So, when technology has been a difficult transition.  However, you know what they say innovate or die.  I don’t want to die…… so I have done it.   I have joined the platform called “New Kajabi”    This has been a huge investment for me.   So far it seem easy enough for even me to use it.  What it will allow me to do is something that I have been working on for a very long time.  Create courses that are more detailed, better organized and easily accessible.  I have been searching for a platform that would allow me to do this and reach more people.  This is something that I am really excited about.   This is how it will work:  (OK, this is how I want it to work, fingers crossed.)   I create courses and projects you have requested and upload them to the platform.   I can organize them as single projects of complete courses with several modules.   The modules can include written patterns,  video tutorials,  user feedback, and tons of other great features such as subscriptions/memberships.

There will freebies as well as paid courses.   I know some people complain about having to pay for content but I would like to remind everyone that I put in a lot of work to create great content.  I need to be able to cover expenses and get paid for my work.  I hope you understand.  After all how many people go to their everyday jobs and do it for free.  I know there are people who volunteer but overall most of us need to be paid for our time and work.  It’s no different with people in the creative jobs.  We need to pay our mortgages, car loans, food bills,  electricity, etc.   That is just the reality of my life.  Those bills keep coming.

One of the benefits of this platform will be that I will be able to offer a variety of services at different price points.   At this time I am not ready for a membership/subscription club but that is something I want to do in the future.   At this time I have prepared 3 courses and I will be launching them within the next couple of weeks.  The first course is an introduction to crochet.  It will cover things that I haven’t been able to cover in my youtube channel.  What I especially like is that it will be very organized and easy to follow along.  All courses include the step-by-step video tutorial (different that what is on my channel now.)  It will also include the written patterns.

Courses will include:   Crochet,  Knitting and Sewing/Quilting 

The courses will be launching soon and I will be giving a Introductory Discount price to all blog members for the first week the course is live.  After that the prices will go up to their regular price.  The prices will still be a lot better than many other sites that offer similar courses.  Plus, you already know my teaching style and as always my goal will be to breakdown the difficult and complex into easy to manage and complete tasks.  This will allow you to have success and actually enjoy your crafting time.

If you would like to be notified of the product launch be sure to become a member of this blog.  It is free and your info will never be sold.   Become a member simply by clicking on the top right hand side box and fill in the information.   This is going to be a great experience and something I have been working on a long time.   I hope you will join me in this new endeavor.  Thank you for all your love and support.

    Fantastic! I can tell this is going to be an exciting time for you. I would like to improve my knitting skills. I know just a bit. I’m just hesitant, but really wish I could knit beautiful things. I’m pretty good at crocheting, sewing, hand embroidery and so on. Thanks!

      The knitting classes will include novice, beginners and some more advanced courses. You will be completing a project in each course to reinforce the skills just learned in the lessons.
