Canada Cups Blog Tour for Bras, Corsets and Panties!

The Canada Cups blog tour has come to an end. If you followed the tour you’ll have read a blog or two every day that outlined someone’s experience as they followed an on-line underwear (making bras, panties or corsets) class by mostly Canadian instructors on “Craftsy”; the on-line platform with more creative classes than anywhere else! Some classes have been taken by more than one blogger so you get to read about more than one person’s experience – what a great way to find out about classes you thought you may want to take!

For those involved in creating this amazing blog tour it’s been a huge amount of work as they not only had to write about the classes they took, they also had to learn about so many technical bits for Facebook and Blogging – it scrambled my brain at times and I wasn’t taking a class and having to write about it too!

The blog tour has been an awesome if overwhelming experience, for as challenging as it was it brought so many women together, many of whom have never met! It also got them sharing their challenges behind the scenes and on their blogs.  If you haven’t been a part of the tour or if you missed some of the blogpost stops along the way, there is a list below – check them out, and applaud the effort it took each woman to create the garment and to work to the time line.

And...let's face it, if it weren't for "Craftsy" this blog tour would never have come into being. Craftsy has given millions of us (yes, literally millions of us!) the opportunity to take classes we'd never have access to otherwise. They gave Beverly Johnson and myself, Linda Sparks the opportunity to share our knowledge with all of you via teaching classes on Craftsy - Beverly teaches Bra Classes and I teach one of the Corset Classes. So, if you somehow haven't taken a Craftsy class yet...I think the blog tour will have inspired you to give some a try. Everyone's blogs have had links to discounted classes so check out all the blogs on this tour.

If you're interested in upgrading your corset making skills you can get my corset class "Custom Corsets; Bones, Casings and Busks"
Click on the highlighted link (in the next line) - where you'll also find hundreds of other classes including those used by bloggers on this tour.  The Corset Class and More  Clicking the link lets you preview the class and gets you a discount if you decided to sign up! [As the teacher of this class I am an affiliate of Craftsy and due earn a small commission on sales]
Note: Farthingales is working on creating downloadable patterns identical to those used for the class. The first set have already been posted to the website in the "patterns" section; look for "pattern, waist

Canada Cups - Lingerie Blog Tour

I'd never heard of a "blog tour" but now I'm apart of one, though far from understanding just how it all works - I can tell you the basics.

Several women are blogging about underwear! Not where to buy it, but how to make it....panties, bras, corsets. Some of them are taking classes on Craftsy and going to blog about their experience. It's a great way for anyone reading the blogs to gain a lot of information with little effort. All the effort - and there is a lot of it - is being put in by the bloggers.

You can follow us on FaceBook and Instagram starting in just a few days! Read all the blogs and discover classes you may...or may not, want to take.
