Have you heard.....

Have you heard about Craftsy?

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 (and there are LOTS of adorable patterns! some are even free!); 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 crochet, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, quilting, sewing, 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.  Everything you need is at your fingertips no matter the time of day or day of the week.

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.  And if you still don't get it, the instructors are often willing to troubleshoot with you via email to ensure you have a great experience.

With Christmas just around the corner this is the perfect time to learn a new technique and make some homemade presents, and Craftsy is here to help you with that. I'm going to be learning how to make brilliant knit beads in this online knitting class.  What class interest you the most?

Until next time,
