|'Stamped & Sewn Valentine Pouches' with Courtney Cerruti|
For Valentine's Weekend, I'm sharing some of the things I love, so today I wanted to tell you more about Creativebug - many of you will know that I've been a member since I first reviewed their online video classes almost a year ago. Since that time, I'm pleased to note that this blog has gained a lot of new readers, and for anyone who missed my earlier review or posts, I've written a quick overview. This weekend is all about spreading the love so if you haven't used Creativebug yet, you'll also find a special code so that you can try it out for yourself (free) for a whole month.
What is Creativebug?
Creativebug brings its members unlimited access to a fabulous selection of over 600 art and craft videos including knitting, crochet, sewing, painting, jewellery-making, quilting, and more. The classes are taught by leading designers and artists and offer something for all skill levels - from simple pompom crafts (you can even make with children), to more complex projects (such as fabric design) presented in weekly instalments.

Creativebug offers unlimited access to ALL of it's classes for only $4.95 a month, so it's excellent value for money. Classes can be streamed via your internet browser or the dedicated app (available for mobile devices) for use on-the-go. The beauty of this is that I've found myself taking all sorts of classes that I probably wouldn't have tried if I had to purchase them individually - like the 'trace a t-shirt class', the Sailor Top (which I've now made three times), calligraphy and stop-motion video classes.
Each month, members can select an additional class to add to their personal library. Once in your library, these never expire. This means you can tailor your learning experience to your own interests and you will retain lifetime access to these classes.
Tuition is excellent and the instructors are all well known artists such as Amy Butler, Fancy Tiger Crafts, Lisa Congdon, Twinkie Chan, Kaffe Fassett, Gretchen Hirsch, Cal Patch (see my earlier interview with her here) and many many more. Seriously, it's like a who's who in arts and crafts!!
Each month more high-quality content is added and this is a mix of (timeless) skill-enhancing classes, and fun seasonal projects like those pictured. I always find a massive amount of inspiration here (in fact, my current knitting project was influenced by one of the painting classes I watched!)
How Do I Join?
This is the best part - throughout February, Creativebug will extend your trial period to a whole month (it's usually two weeks), and you will also get to add one free class to your personal library (to keep forever) by using the code LOVE - simply click on the image below to start browsing classes now!
