Photography is key to communicating any brand, large or small. David Butler explains how he creates stunning images on a budget.
Find out how Craftsy instructor Angela Walters approaches surface design for contemporary quilts, and get a glimpse of life behind a longarm.
In this lecture, Heather Jones explores her muse, which she finds in surprising places, from the Walmart parking lot to the corrugated sides of a grain silo.

    I can't access any videos on crafts. I have premium membership. Can you advise?

    If I have a subscription for one month and download a quilting video, does the video disappear once the month is finished? I have downloaded a video for a quilt I would like to make. Just wondering how long the download lasts as I am a relatively beginner quilter and have a few projects going.

    Is their a book or a class that would help a new quilter from buying fabric, preparing fabric, cutting fabric. Or any other information that would be helpful to me? thanks😊

    I not an intermediate or advanced quilter. However, I have a project I would love to complete with appropriate instruction: My mother and sister both have passed, would purchase a cloth linen calendar each year for our second home in Ogunquit Maine. I have the collection. I did have a friend who did quilting who advised me on the material colors to use for the border and the backing material. I have that material. As time went by, I could not have applied myself to that project due to life happenings, Presently I am ready to pursue completion of my original dream: to use all that I have to create a few quilts that would cover several beds that are in this house in Ogunquit. It is my hope that I can accomplish this with the guidance of your help.Looking forward to hearing from you Bernadette. Thank you.
