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.
I have been very impressed with my experiences with Craftsy – if you are interested in reading more about Craftsy’s online classes and how they work, you may like my two articles: Online Class Review: Shoot It!

Craftsy offers many different online classes and projects in a variety of crafting genres and price ranges – and if you’d like to try one before you buy, there many free mini-courses available! I tried the free 2012 Quilt Block of the Month Club and it was very well done. Craftsy also offers a money-back guarantee.
