      Hi, Kay — The link I provided includes the discount or any specials Craftsy is having, whichever is the best value. You can go at your own pace, see others’ comments and projects, view new projects of mine, add your own, ask questions and more. It’s similar to a regular classroom, only online, and MUCH more convenient! You can even wear your pajamas to class ;+)
