Find out how you can benefit from everything Craftsy offers

Few weeks ago I was writing on what Craftsy is and now it is time to tell you why it’s so amazing!

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; 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 quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.

Behind the Scenes: The Making of a Craftsy Class
Before filming even begins, hours and hours are spent determining what content will be covered in each class, and how to best teach specific techniques to the camera. Instructors work with an instructional designer to create an in-depth outline of each lesson, and decide how to best prepare props or “step-outs” that show what your project should like at different steps. Instead of a scripted class, instructors follow their outlines on camera to create an authentic and engaging teaching experience.
Most Craftsy classes are filmed in one of five Craftsy studios in Denver, CO, assuring that every part of the production process goes off without a hitch. They fly in instructors from all over the world to spend several days filming, then spend several weeks turning hours of footage into a two to three-hour class experience that has been watched, rewatched, and reviewed by industry experts. The final result is an HD-quality video that takes you in-depth into specific topics in any given craft category from cooking and fine art to sewing and knitting.

What IS the Craftsy experience?
Craftsy classes are designed to have all the benefits of an in-person class, with none of the drawbacks. Available online and on-demand, you always have world-class instructors at the tip of your fingers. You can retake the class as many times as you want, and the 30-second repeat feature allows you to watch the same section over and over again until you get every technique just right.
Watching a Craftsy class is like having a first-row seat with some of the best instructors in the world. Even better, classes have a 100% money-back guarantee.

  5. What classes have you taken. I’m still haven’t taken one! Not one! I’m afraid it will sit on my hard drive, but I do like that its there whenever you’re ready.

    1. Well… a lot and still a long list to take.
      The latest are: ’40 Techniques Every Sewer Should Know’, ‘The Iconic Tweed Jacket’, ‘The Couture Dress’, ‘Custom Fitting: Back, Neck, and Shoulders’, ‘Underneath It All: Guide to Interfacings, Linings & Facings’…
      I am about to write a review for ‘The Iconic Tweed Jacket’ – one of the newest.
      I like the Craftsy classes are made – high quality, and eve though I am on quite advanced level – it is always nice to know I am doing correct, learn new techniques (new materials, fabrics).
      The fact that you cna watch is whenever you want and repeat over and over again – definitely added value.
