How This Event is Different
The bite-sized, daily exercises! The carefully selected and edited content! The 5 expert coaches and 12 exciting giveaways! The '80s ladies in their leotards! And this event is doable for even busy schedules like yours. You can call it good after 20 minutes of "power crafting" each day, but you'll also walk away with hours of ideas and inspiration, if you have the time.

And the videos—or think of them as "mini classes"—are less than $2.50 each. It's a steal!

Returning participants will enjoy the same unique content, easy-to-follow format, and top-quality instruction that's suitable for all levels of crafters. But this year there will also beincreased instructor interaction, live chats, more videos, and NO EXPIRATION on any of the content.
