Video Bag of the Month Club is now OPEN!

crafty gemini video bag of the month club


Today is the big day that I open up my NEW Video Bag of the Month Club for EARLY BIRD signups! If you haven’t been following me on YouTube this week then you probably missed out on all the info and FREE tutorials I shared. But no worries, I’ll include them here for ya at the end.

This video-based bag of the month club is an idea I came up with a few years back after seeing how popular handbag making was becoming among my crafty online circles. I also noticed that when I shared a tutorial on some type of tote bag project they were very well received and many of you requested more. So, I started plotting out how I could design a collection of handbag courses that would be broken up by month and instead of just offering them with the pattern and printed instructions I would go all out and film step-by-step video courses for each bag. What a fab idea, right?!

Well, if you’ve ever designed a handbag, created the pattern, produced, filmed and edited hours of video footage for the courses then you know that you can easily spend over 100 hours working on each bag. Multiply that by 5 handbags and here we FINALLY are … a year and a half later with the actual launch date of my new bag club! Phew! It’s been a long time coming but I am very happy with it! All the late nights of testing, tweaking and filming were definitely worth it! So, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Here is how it works:

• I designed 5 totally different handbags. {See image above. Aren’t they cute?!}

• I will teach you how to make one bag each month starting on August 1st and on the first of every month after that until December 2016.

• The classes will include the downloadable PDF patterns & templates and the step-by-step video lessons taught by me!

• Handbags feature all kinds of techniques- recessed zippers, interior zippered pockets, invisible magnetic snap pockets, a variety of zippers and insertion techniques, different handles, adjustable shoulder strap, how to use vinyl or faux leather in handbags, installing grommets, installing rivets, etc.

• We will also be selling finishing kits for each bag. Kits will be available for pre-sale on the 15th of each month for the following month’s class. The August kit is here. 

• I’m offering an Early Bird Sale Price of just $60 (includes all 5 patterns & video courses! Comes out to $12 per course) until Sunday, July 31, 2016 at 11:59pm EDT. After that the price goes up to $70 (still a great value!)

• Once you join the Club your access to the course content NEVER EXPIRES. You can re-watch the videos whenever you want as often as you want, indefinitely. So, if you don’t have time to sew right now, sign up anyway. You’ll always have it there for when you do find the time.

• There are no mysteries. You can see all 5 handbags so you can decide up front whether or not you’d like to make them. If you only want to make 1 or 2 I will be making them available individually on Jan. 1, 2017. At that time they will be available for purchase in my online shop.

      Hi Kathleen. An email went out with all the login information this morning to all club members. I just checked and it looks like you received the email and viewed it already. Are you all set?

      Hi Emilie, I sent an email yesterday morning to all members. Just checked my email system and it shows you received the email at 11:57am but have not opened it. Please look in your spam/junk folder to make sure it didn’t end up there. That email has all the info on accessing your Club content. Thanks!

    I would enjoy a quilt of the month. I can’t figure out how to navigate social media. I don’t even know how to subscribe to youtube. I have you and Jenny saved on my tablet, no printer, but I can draw what I see and disect the pattern. Help! I don’t want bag of the month (my daughter buys one every month!).

  16. Sharon November 7, 2016 at 7:20 am #

    Everyone has such a wonderful imagination! Now all these ideasare spinning in my head. I’m not very good at that. Maybe I’llbwork up the courage.

  17. Cynthia December 30, 2016 at 9:26 am #

    Hi Vanessa
    Not sure if I left my question on the correct site. I was wondering if you would consider opening y
    Up the quilt club to new members ? I am a member of the bag of the month club love your tutorials and would love to be a part of this club as well. Thanks

  18. Janice February 22, 2017 at 1:28 am #

    When I signed up for the 2017 bag class I was told to apply again, well I did 4 times!!! Can you delete 3 of them? I have been trying but can’t seem to do it. Thanks for your help.

    • Mary Ferguson February 22, 2017 at 3:48 am #

      I signed up for your very first set of tutorials but unfortunately I’ve never been able to find them. I had written off the experience until I saw your new tutorials advertised. Is it possible you could advise me on how to find the first tutorials on line?
      Kind regards
      Mary Ferguson
