POLL: would you take a scrapbooking class online?

Hello fabulous followers:
It's another wonderful Wednesday and we want to hear from you!

QQ is in the process of possibly branching out into the world of 'live streaming classes via the web.' We want to know:
  • Would you take a scrapbooking class online?
  • Why or why not?
  • Would you prefer to attend a live session where there would be live chat with other participants and the teacher, or would you prefer a recorded episode?
  • What types of classes would you like to see online? (cards, layouts, altered projects)
  • Your feedback is very valuable to us =)

Have you entered the latest QQ Friday Challenge.
('Top 3' bragging rights & a $25 gift certificate are up for grabs!)

If it was free yes. However with money tight can't afford to pay attention at the moment.

Recorded episode so that I can go at my own pace.

All of the above. I enjoy doing cards, layouts and would love to learn altered projects.

I've done a few classes through BPC- only one that I've paid for I believe. Generally, I'm not big on spending money on the classes as I find that I love the idea but have a hard time doing the follow-through. I prefer recorded pieces as chats get difficult to follow and tend to be jumpy and meander. I scrap and make cards so some unique classes around those are nice. I'm very interested in doing some altered items also.

I would take online classes if they were free or very inexpensive (no more than $5). I prefer recorded classes so I can go back and watch as many times as I'd like. Also, I find all the chatter on live presentations distracting and the instructions tend to become disjointed. I like seeing new techniques and different ways to use tools and supplies. I only make cards and scrapbook lo's. I'm not interested in altered items or home decor.

I would like classes if reasonably priced. I like all sorts of things cards, layouts, altered projects and mini books.

I might try it. I usually like working with people, but we could get a group together. Why not!

I would take a class online - if it was free. I agree that money is super tight these days! I would prefer a recorded episode, so I can view at my leisure. I'm on the West Coast, so all of the webisodes and chats are usually on East Coast time and I miss them all. I would love to see classes on all of the above!

I would do a class as well if it was recorded. Right now with my busy household I may not get to craft until late or during nap times. At my own pace would be perfect because of this. Free or reasonably priced classes would make me even more inclined to do them. As far as what kind of class it depends on the crafty mood I'm in, although any you listed would be right up my alley.

I would DEFINITLY like to take classes online if they are free or very reasonable priced. I prefer a class that's recorded due to the fact that often times a live class tends to get off track too easily. I like all kinds of paper crafting preferably stay away from home decor. After being at Private Reserve I will do anything with Quick Quotes!! Thank You!!!

I would definately take some on-line classes from you. I would have like the option of taking a class "live", as well as being able to review the recording at my leisure. By taking the class live, I could "raise" my hand and have the instructor explain exactly how to do it. I think a great idea would be to offer a kit that has everything we need to have at a discount & include the class with it. For those who don't sign up for a kit, they can purchase a recorded class & use their own supplies. I would love to take a "Everything Altered" class if you are only teaching 1 class. I would also enjoy a "Crazy For Cards" class & a "Superb Scrapbook" layout. Since I was fortunate to attend your Private Reserve in Grand Mound, WA (THANK YOU QUICK QUOTES!!!!!!!!) I would take any class you offered. To all you ladies & gentlemen who are thinking about going, you MUST go. You only need to bring yourself, your supplies, some $$$, your camera for photo-ops galore, & some photos...Quick Quotes provides the rest. Kit after kit, paper packs, alphabets, & more. The contests are a kick in the pants, Patsy is an amazing story-teller, the instructor is superb, & Sunny runs a fantastic store. Plus, you get several Make-n-Takes & several Take-n- Makes. Best part of all get a huge amount of room to.spread everything out. My daughter & I had a BLAST!!!

I would take a recorded class, and possibly pay for it depending on how much it is. It would be great if I could order the papers/supplies needed either at a LSS or online, then do it at my leisure. I did the Private Reserve at York, PA and I thought Michelle was a wonderful instructor.

It had the best classes I've been to, and it was run so effieciently even though there were so many people doing the class at the same time.

Yes, I like to see how projects are made and to learn new techniques. I prefer a recorded session, because I usually can't sit down at my computer til late at night---most online classes are during the day when I'm working (I am sure I'm not the only one who feels that way!) I love to learn new techniques, ways to use products. Thanks for asking!

I'm intrigued by the idea but afraid that I would lack the discipline to stay with it. I wouldn't want live for all the same reasons mentioned above. Cost factor would also make a difference.
