Over the next few weeks, and for a while after that too, you’re going to hear me talking a lot about Craftsy. Maybe you haven’t heard about Craftsy before, or it sounds vaguely familiar but you didn’t really look into it.
What’s a Craftsy?
Craftsy is the fastest growing crafty community on the web with over 5 million members in over 200 countries worldwide. Craftsy offers online classes across many creative fields—quilting, knitting, sewing, crochet, jewelry making, fine art, cooking, photography and more. With a Craftsy online class you can take it as many times as you want, whenever you want and access never expires. Plus the instructors and other students will answer your questions and give feedback. Craftsy also has craft supplies and kits as well as a pattern shop.
I’m a Craftsy student.
I’ve taken a variety of classes on Craftsy. The first Craftsy class I ever signed up for was Edie Eckman’s, How to Say It: Pattern Writing for Knitters. I actually took a version of this class in person years ago. It might seem odd to sign up for a class online that I already took in person, but I actually find having the online version of the class very helpful. I can “refresh” myself on the material whenever I want.
I’ve also been trying to expand my crafty (or should I say Craftsy) horizons outside the world of yarn. I signed up for the Hand Quilting class recently. I binge watched almost the whole class in two evenings, and I’m currently practicing the techniques by trying to hand quilt a pot holder. It’s been really neat to explore something brand new.
Now, I’m a Craftsy instructor.
I’m thrilled to announce that I’m teaching a Craftsy class! My Craftsy class on crochet seaming techniques will be launching at the end of this month. I can’t wait to be able to show you all everything I’ve been working on. To celebrate, you can enter this giveaway to win my class.
Stay tuned over the next week or so for sneak peak photos from the class. Make sure to sign up for the newsletter or join my Ravelry group so that you’ll be able to find out as soon as the class is available.
