Your Gateway to
Exclusive Online Video Content
Via The All-New
The exciting CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club is your NEW gateway to enriched, one-of-a-kind learning from some of the very best craft experts/tutors in the business! Every month, via DOWNLOADABLE VIDEO CONTENT, a different CraftyMonkies expert tutor will guide you through their unique creative process, delivering EXCLUSIVE and DOWNLOADABLE content, including new Projects and Techniques!
If that’s not enough, you’re also invited to a VIP Club: Members Only live Webinar with the Tutor of the Month where you will be able to join in and ask any questions about that month's content!
Let’s be honest, with so many other craft clubs out there offering you regular monthly sewing content, it’s a challenge to stand out from the crowd! We have to entice you in but also make you a happy, satisfied CraftyMonkie who feels they're getting excellent value for money!
Wanting to build upon our incredibly well received Take 3 Private Member Club (which ran between June 2020-May 2021), we were keen to take on your feedback, make improvements, and offer you an incredibly unique experience. The number one request on your feedback list was:-
To paraphrase Rachel's favourite character, Monica, from Friends: "Well, OK then, YES!!!"
In the all-NEW CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club you're able to watch AND download our monthly content to keep as long as you like!...
So how did we design the format for the new CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club? What we love most about the many 'CraftyMonkies' who join us in our regular Online Interactive Workshops via Zoom (and in our previous Take 3 Private Member Club) is their commitment to a challenge! It's clear that you absolutely WANT to learn new things, push yourselves and be introduced to new ways of working.
In our eyes we see that as 'enrichment' and that was very much the ethos behind the new CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club.
To this end we can now offer you a whole year of challenges from a different tutor each & every month, bringing you exclusive Patterns, Makes and Content all of which will be DOWNLOADABLE (content that you can’t find anywhere else!) Not only that, but we'll also deliver a live Q&A session via a monthly Webinar with the tutor!
What’s more, every single month will be a totally different learning experience, like a fantastic box of chocolates with a whole variety of flavours… but much better, you get to eat AND keep this fabulous box of goodies! What an incredibly exciting adventure lays ahead of you, we hope you'll agree!...
For just £14.99 each calendar month (we also have an Annual Membership for £149.99 which sees you get TWO MONTHS content for FREE!!!) the CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club provides access to at least two hours worth of exclusive, filmed, DOWNLOADABLE content EVERY MONTH - plus all the benefits listed above!
In addition you’ll also get access to the CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club Private Facebook Group, where you can swap your makes, perhaps gain new friends and drop in for a chat whenever you like!
Win a Place on an Online Interactive Workshop
As if all the content mentioned above & below in our new CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club is not enough, we are offering ONE lucky person a place on one of our CraftyMonkies Online Interactive Workshops up to the value of £30.00! Wherever possible we will accommodate the winner on a class of their choice within a reasonable timeframe, subject to demand from paying customers for upcoming classes. The winner will be chosen from our list of CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club participants using a number-generator system and the person will be notified not later than the fourth day of each month.
'What exactly will I learn?' we hear you cry!
To launch proceedings, we get an incredible, unique, never-seen-before ‘deep dive’ Inside The Design Process with renowned Moda Fabrics designer, Janet Clare. In her beautifully filmed and cosy approach (see the Trailer video, above), Janet will teach you how to gather materials, create a colour palette, plan & establish moodboards, demystify sketchbooks, bring your ideas together, release creative blocks, and find your very own creative process! This is all leading up to the second part of Janet's VIP Member Club monthly content (planned for release in October 2021) where you will create your own Fabric Collage-style Quilt! You can come up with your own theme for that using the techniques you learn with Janet in Part One of her VIP Member Club offering, or follow Janet's 'Garden' theme.
As we mentioned every single month is different and so month two is with Judith Hollies making a Messenger Bag Constructed from Re-Purposed Fabrics (see the Trailer video, above). Judith talks about which textiles to use, how to sew and work with them correctly, intricate details of the bag, and offers you many sewing tips along the way, including how to bring out the design elements of the recycled denim you are using. In this age of ever-increasing awareness about the fragility of our planet and our individual responsibility to do as much as we can to monitor our carbon footprint, a class focused on working with recyclable materials is a winner - we hope you agree!
Next into the VIP Member Club spotlight comes Gary Mills with his unique viewpoint and many different techniques to help you learn his coastal textile piece of art Land Coast And Creatures plus TWO other projects to practice on and learn the skills during this month. Gary will teach you three key ways to gather ideas, how to use Mixed Media with Free-Motion Embroidery and Hand Embroidery, and how to plan and develop your own end-piece!
After Gary's fabulous mixed-media offering, we head 'across the pond' to the good old United States of America for some Traditional Quilting with a wonderful new talent, Jennie Picket. In her opening session for us, Jennie take us through the many techniques of a stunning medallion quilt in baby-size, (making it an achievable project), but with lots of solid piecing skills, tips and techniques to learn and then apply to bigger makes.
The lovely Janet Clare returns with Part Two of her first year's VIP Member Club offer which will see you create your own Fabric Collage-style Quilt! You can come up with your own theme for this project using the techniques you will learn with Janet in Part One of her VIP Member Club offering (taking place in June 2021), or follow Janet's 'Garden' theme being taught in this session.
CraftyMonkies regular Sarah Payne demystifies Free-Motion Quilting! Using four quilt blocks, Sarah teaches you specific free motion motifs including: pebbles, meander, flowers, feathers and many more! She also talks about the power of negative space, quilt as you go and how to plan your designs.
As the festive season approaches, we enter the world of Dressmaking with a Japanese inspired jacket from Gary Mills, but as always Gary takes it a step further. He’s bringing textile art into a garment using mixed media techniques, plus teaching you how to create your very own pattern for the jacket.
The wonderfully creative Lucy Brennan continues the mixed media theme, with a twist! She’s teaching us how to create a Wall-Hanging Vision Board to get you set for the New Year! It features embroidery, buttons, mini blocks and much more, plus we have more tutors lined up for you in this first year - unlike the Take 3 Private Member Club which only ran for one year, the CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club journey has no end date - there’s so much more in store to unveil in the coming weeks & months and we very much hope you'll join us!!!...
