Not only can you find great deals on craft supplies like fabric and yarn but you can also take some online classes. They have classes that cover crocheting, food craft, gardening, holidays, home decor, jewelry and more. Most of the classes I have seen are $25. The classes are online and you can access them anytime and however many times you want. Click on the button above to check out Craftsy!
On Craftsy, you can also share your craft project with the Craftsy community. Share pictures of your project, what pattern you used (whether you bought the pattern, learned it in a class or created it yourself – you can share the pattern too) and if you are selling the item, you can share the link to where people can buy it. Another great way to get some traffic to your shop!
Craftsy is the fastest growing online community for Crafters – with over 500,000 monthly unique visitors, having just launched in May 2011. This rapid growth results from two primary offerings which Craftsy users love:
1) Terrific online classes from amazing instructors for beginning, intermediate and advanced quilters, knitters, crocheters, sewists, jewelry makers, and other crafters.
2) Astonishingly good deals on crafting supplies: organic yarn, lovely fabrics and fat quarters from top designers, high quality needles, etc…
For the sewers and quilters out there:
The Craftsy Block of the Month is a completely free, year-long online class instructed by expert quilter, Amy Gibson. There are 12 installments, each one posted on the first day of every month. The first 10 months/installments teach our students two new exciting blocks (brand new designs or funky spins on traditional blocks). The last two months are dedicated to finishing the quilt. At the end of the class, our students will have full-size and one-of-a-kind quilts. Like all of our classes, students can view it whenever it’s convenient for them, and can watch them however many times they’d like. It’s filmed in high-definition, and it’s fully interactive—students can ask Amy questions as they go.
