If you’re looking to improve your craft or learn a new one, be it sewing, knitting, quilting, cake decorating, paper crafting, woodworking, gardening, painting, jewelry making etc., then you need to check out Craftsy.com.
What or who is Craftsy you ask? Craftsy is an online crafts education company offering free and paid video and downloadable courses and workshops on a whole range of craft categories. The courses/workshops range from $20 to $50, and there’s some free ones as well. I recently purchased a free video course on Bag-Making Basics, because I wanted to improve my purse/bag making skills. I learned a few new techniques, which made me very happy! What else is nice is that the classes never expire.
In addition to the courses/workshops, they also offer community project forums, craft supplies and kits.
Craftsy also allows you to sell your own patterns for free. I’ve purchased a few sewing patterns…there’s tons of them at very reasonable prices, including free ones!
Here’s the patterns I have in my Craftsy shop so far.
My Expandable Travel Trash Bag Pattern – $3.50
My DIY Paper Craft Templates – $2.50
My POCKET Golf Ball Cleaner Pattern – $4.00
My FEED ME Monster Pillow Pattern – $5.00
My Angry Bird Seatbelt Pillow Pattern…this one’s Free!
Check out Craftsy. I just know you’ll find lots of interesting things to make and learn!
