Craftsy Best Sellers Sale (and My Latest Stash Additions)

It's been a while since I posted anything about my sponsors to the right of my blog (especially given the overall feel for sponsored posts in the blogging community lately), but I really wanted to share what I know is a great deal to be had on Craftsy. Before I launch into the actual sale info, I wanted to prove how much I feel it's a good deal by showing you what I recently bought, lol. This is Show and Tell Meg, after all :)

Craftsy can be a fantastic source for great prices on really nice quality crafting supplies. I have made many purchases from their supplies section over the years. About a week ago they had a sale that I just couldn't say no to and I came away with these:

They had this Cascade 220 Superwash Quatro on sale for $3.85 per skein - yes, you read that right! This yarn is up on right now for $6.79 per skein. The yarn has been discontinued by Cascade, so lots of places are running sales on it, but seriously $3.85 each for superwash 100% wool? That's just crazy. I grabbed 6 skeins of the Lupin colorway which has a great purple/fuchsia twist to it.
See? It's about like this photo in real life - a nice bright magenta/purple. I grabbed enough to make the Agatha cardigan with it, plus one extra for good measure. It's so pretty and squishy and soft. I just love it!
I also couldn't resist this fantastic deal - Lion Brand Cotton-Ease for 3.08 per skein! I've always wanted to use this yarn for a white sweater, but I've never felt like paying $6.50 per skein for it from Joann's. Even on sale at Joann's I never see it cheaper than $5.24 each, so $3.08 was an absolute no brainer. I'm not entirely sure what sweater I will make with this, but I grabbed 5 skeins so I should be good for most of the designs I had my eye on.

Just to dispel any thoughts of me telling you all this for my own gain, I paid for all of this out of my own pocket. I'm not being compensated by Craftsy at all for posting it here. It was just such a great deal I wanted to share.

All that being said, I wanted to also let you know about their Best of 2014 Sale. This sale is the "get what you really want for Christmas" sale, lol. All of their classes will be $19.99 or less, as well as some great deals on their supplies (this includes yarn, fabric, kits and more). The sale starts today (12/20/14) and runs until Midnight of Christmas Day (12/25/14). I haven't even seen what the prices are no the supplies, but if they are anything like what you saw I already got, I may need to snag a few deals myself :)

So check out the sale here and see if there is anything you can't live without! (P.S. You can still get express shipping and have it by Christmas if need be! Keep that in mind!) Have fun :)
