Have you ever heard of Craftsy? It’s a great new way to learn a variety of homemaking skills!
What is Craftsy?
Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.
Why should I take a class online?
Online education isn’t just for schools and universities anymore. Craftsy courses provide you the convenience of a world-class instructor in your home, whenever you want to learn. Online education, no matter what subject, is a great alternative to in-person classes for a number of reasons.
With many online learning opportunities being on-demand, you are able to learn at your own pace, anytime. Online learning is a fantastic alternative to in-store craft classes for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house. It also allows you to watch a troubling section over-and-over again, so you can see exactly how a technique is carried out, or refer back to your class for relevant concepts before beginning any new projects.
You can try out Craftsy with Free Craftsy Classes. The class that I’ve started watching is Online Croissants Class. It’s great! I love that it will stay there forever, for whenever I have a chance to get back to it or if I need to re-watch a particular segment. It’s also neat to be able to interact with others taking the class. I have also downloaded a crochet pattern: an adorable Minion hat!
