I am a part of the Craftsy* affiliate program and I will be reviewing two of their sewing classes in the next few weeks. Craftsy is a website with a ton of classes for all sorts of crafts, from sewing to crochet to cake decorating. They offer some classes for free and the more in-depth classes vary in price from the $20-$60 range. The first class I am reviewing is free for anyone with a Craftsy account! It is a bag making basics class and in it I learned to make a reversible tote bag and a zipper pouch found here: Free Online Sewing Class.*
The format of the class is awesome. It is a series of videos divided up into lessons and chapters. As the video plays, you can take your own video notes, leave questions for others taking the class, and see questions or comments others have left. You can pause and replay the video in a variety of ways, and the instruction is clear and easy to follow. You also get printable instructions that go along with the projects you are working on.
While in the free classes you do not get to ask questions of the instructor, you can read through all questions asked by those who have taken the class, post new questions, and read through a ton of answers from others in the class. This format was great for me, it was easy to follow along and having the video to help show me some of the more challenging parts of the bag construction was awesome. I am looking forward to taking more class with Craftsy and cannot wait to see what the next class is like.
