Your Gateway to
Exclusive Online Video Content
Via The All-New

 

Our exciting CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club replaced what was the former Take 3 Private Member Club!

The CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club is your gateway to enriched, one-of-a-kind learning from some of the very best craft experts and tutors in the business! Every month, via EXCLUSIVE & DOWNLOADABLE VIDEO content, a different CraftyMonkies expert tutor will guide you through their unique creative process via a series of specially curated Projects and Techniques.

 

If that’s not enough, towards each month you’re also invited to an hour-long VIP Club: Members Only live Zoom Chat with our Tutor of the Month, where you will be able to join in and ask any questions about that month's content!

Excited? We most certainly are! Following the excellent 'Inside the Design Process' collection of videos by Janet Clare which kicked things off in June 2021, we've delivered over 50 hours of fabulous downloadable content from Judith Hollies, Gary Mills, Jennie Pickett, Janet Clare, Lucy Brennan, Sarah Ashford and Sarah Payne. When we say we want to offer you incredible content you won't find anywhere else and films that will inspire you to try something new, we're not joking; Creating a Baby Medallion Quilt, Making a Japanese Inspired Garment, a Deep Dive into Free Motion Quilting, QAYG, Denim Bag Making, Textile Art and Appliqué have all been under the spotlight!

 

On this page you'll find some short video teasers about the VIP Member Club, including an intro by CraftyMonkies founder & CEO Rachel Pierman (see above), and a teaser promo from our Guest Tutor in April 2022 Sarah Ashford. If you scroll down further, you will find content coming up in 2022!

The best news is, we've only just begun!

 

We'll be bringing you lots of EXCITING, EXCLUSIVE and DOWNLOADABLE video content, month after month after month after - you get the idea!...

CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club - Exclusive Downloadable Video 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:-

“Is there any way we can watch, download & keep the content forever?” 

 

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!...

CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club - Exclusive Video Content!
 

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!...

CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club Daisy Aschehoug Bojagi inspired Flat-Felled Seams

'What exactly will I learn?we hear you cry!

 

New content coming on 01 May 2022!

As May dawns it means we've been running our VIP club for a full year! What a tremendous year it's been, so many guest tutors from around the world bringing us their own individual takes on sewing and mixed media via hours and hours of wonderful filmed content..

 

BRAND NEW tutor to CraftyMonkiesDaisy Aschehoug, takes the reins in May as she talks about her Bojagi-inspired sewing. See Daisy's taster-video for her May 2022 VIP Member Club content below - the beautiful, meditative art that comes from tackling Flat Felled Seams - The Bojagi Way!

"For years I tried to incorporate a hand sewing hobby into my quilting, but nothing felt like the right fit. I never got into EPP, embroidery or regular hand-piecing. But, something about stitching a flat-felled seam in a Bojagi–inspired way was perfect. The seam is double sided, with no raw edges exposed. It's a joy to make the stitches, and the scene ends up being super strong!"

Before moving on, a huge word of thanks to last month's VIP Host Tutor, Sarah Ashford for her fabulous April 2022 content, which saw you explore Walking Foot techniques and creating a small plaque inspired by graffiti! It proved to be a hugely popular month so "Well done, Sarah - once again, absolutely wonderful content!!!"

CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club Sarah Payne Make Your Own Appliqué Art!

Coming in June 2022!...

In June 2022, the wonderful Sarah Payne joins us and will be giving us her take on Appliqué - Sarah loves to take tricky topics and make them simple and will be doing it again! Sarah will take you through the process of picking a design, using it as a basis for creating your appliqué, and then how to make that design come alive as your very own appliqué project. Sarah will take you by the hand with tips on sources, how to choose your image and then drafting it into a usable design, go through the planning, and then the execution of your project. Sarah will give you tips on fabrics, colours and supplies, as well as show you the options for sewing your unique design.

Coming in July 2022 and beyond!...

 

We love mixing it up in the VIP Member Club and so in July Rachel Hill (aka Barefoot Crafter) will be talking about Scrapbooking but with a strong eye on design skills in general talking about the use of thirds, negative space, composition of photos, layouts, plus including some great tips on improving your photo taking skills to really make the entire thing pop.

 

August sees the arrival of another new VIP Member Club tutor, Alison Carpenter-Hughes. When it comes to threads and colour, there is nothing Alison doesn't know and she is going to take you on an incredible journey in which she aims to give you a better understanding of colour.

 

September sees the return of Gary Mills and his wealth of dressmaking skills and design knowledge. This time he makes a Jersey Stretch-Top inspired by Urban Architecture. Gary has picked urban architecture as a starting point to the design process. From making small sketches or taking and collaging photographs you will learn how to isolate details, which then can be applied to the design of your top. You will create mood boards and garment design templates to work through your ideas.

 

You will explore blocking sections in your garment, creating flattering design lines in the top that are reflected from the inspiration of buildings. WOW! We have more tutors lined up for you as the year progresses - unlike the Take 3 Private Member Club which only ran for one year,  the CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club journey has no set end date - it's set to run & run and there’s so much more in store to unveil in the coming weeks & months and we very much hope you'll join us!!!...

Remember, ALL this wonderful video content is EXCLUSIVE to the CraftyMonkies VIP Member Club - you will not see it anywhere else! And, it's all totally DOWNLOADABLE for you to save & keep forever and re-visit whenever you feel the urge! Believe us when we say that it’s going to be an absolutely wonderful journey to follow...
