Have you heard of Craftsy?
If you love to learn and love to make, you will love Craftsy. At its heart, it’s an online community where makers come together to teach and learn about everything handmade, including: sewing, quilting, knitting, crochet, cake decorating, cooking, and more.
Their online classes combine traditional in-person courses with the convenience and flexibility of the internet. They are available to you anytime you want for as long as you want. There is no scheduled class times, so you can enjoy them entirely on your own schedule. Each class has multiple video lessons that are professionally recorded in HD. Some of the classes I’ve enjoyed are Creative Quilt Backs, Designing Modern Quilts, and Thread Art. I just enrolled in Pre Cut Piecing Made Simple and can’t wait to watch it!
Craftsy also offers great deals on craft supplies and patterns from indie designers. There are tons of patterns you can download for purchase or for free. And yes, a couple of my patterns are available on Craftsy! Visit my Craftsy profile 🙂
Since I use and love their online learning platform, I was only too happy to accept when they asked if I would like to offer a class giveaway. I’m giving away the online quilting class: Quilt As You Go Patchwork Bags with Tara Rebman.
Are you familiar with QAYG (quilt as you go)? I’ve been seeing it all over in the online quilting scene. People are using this scrappy technique to make all sorts of things: bags, potholders, pouches, pillows, iPad cases, and of course quilts! I’ve put together a Pinterest inspiration board – check it out!
