What to buy with the Bluprint 50% discount

In case you need more convincing that the Bluprint annual subscription with unlimited access to thousands of classes is worth its weight in gold, then Bluprint just came out with a pretty darn convincing offer of 50% off the full price of all Craftsy supplies through the end of the year with any Bluprint annual subscription.

Here are five awesome Craftsy supplies that made my discount shortlist.

1) Craftsy Pima Thread

The Pima Thread collection is Craftsy’s answer to Aurifil thread. And in user testing, many people said that they preferred the Pima 50wt over Aurifil. With your 50% discount through end of year for signing up for a Bluprint annual subscription, you could get 24 spools for about $4.50 per spool.

2) Pathfinder Solids Mojave Quilt Kit by Sarah Ruiz

Sarah was one of my favorite outside designers to work with at Craftsy. She is a NASA engineer! The color palette here is dead-on with trend, and it would look beautiful in both a modern or traditional home. Plus, the kit is made from one fat quarter bundle, so you could save it for your stash plus get the pattern.

3) A fat quarter bundle of Kaffe Fassett Collective Spring 2018 Dark

Every year Kaffe releases curated collections of prints from his collective (designers Kaffe, Brandon Mably, Philip Jacobs) in a beautiful coordinated palette. Craftsy is my secret source for Kaffe Fassett fabrics at a serious bargain.

4) Ultimate Master Chef Junior Bundle

A budding chef in the family? This would make a killer gift for any culinary-minded little one. The bundle comes with six hands-on kits plus the MasterChef Junior Cookbook. Each kit includes kid-safe cooking tools and recipe cards.

5) Rick Bayless Mexican Everyday Cookbook

This is one of my absolute favorite cookbooks that I’ve owned in my personal collection for years. (The Gulf Coast-Style White Rice Pilaf is a game changer.) And now that you have unlimited access to Bluprint/Craftsy classes with your subscription, you can watch Rick’s Craftsy class Essentials of Mexican Cooking. Lessons include Rick’s most popular salsas, taco fillings, guacamole and ceviche, tamales, classic red mole and a bonus: The Perfect Margarita.
