Class Sale and Solder Is In!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I am back from Tucson and boy, oh boy, was it fun. (More recap on that later!) After a much needed rest day yesterday, I am up and at 'em and preparing to leave for a blissful quilt retreat weekend with my mom.

But first some news. The long awaited paste solder that I use in my book is finally back in my Etsy shop.
I have a good amount in stock, but if you want it, jump over and grab it as it goes QUICK!

Next, as you may know I have a FREE class on Micro Torch Basics on Since its debut in September 2012 it has almost 23,000 (I KNOW twenty-three THOUSAND!) students enrolled. I am so happy that my class has reached so many students and that everyone is learning to love their butane micro torch.

Along with my FREE class I also have a class on Metalsmithing at Home that includes four all-new projects and techniques that I do not cover in my book.

 I loved filming it and it is full of great tips and techniques and right now it's on sale!!

All classes at are on sale now through February 17 at midnight, so it's the perfect time to sign up! Click right here and check them all out!

Off to pack my 1/4" quilting foot and fat quarters. Have a great weekend all.
