In this episode, Anne recommends some BluPrint classes for those who are trying to cram in as many as they can before the service disappears, as well as some knitting books she has found helpful for the Master Hand Knitter Program. More progress on the program, the Morehouse Virtual Farm Day, and more!
BluPrint is no longer accepting memberships, but all the classes mentioned in the show can still (at the moment this episode launches) be found by searching for the title of the class if you already have a membership.
