Have you guys heard of Craftsy yet? It’s an online craft video tutorial site – with hundreds of video “classes” ranging from cake decorating, to patternmaking, jewelrymaking, spinning and weaving, knitting, photography, art, and design. All their classes classes are engaging and well-planned-out, and you can master a new skill easily on your own available time, from the comfort of your own home. I especially love by their sewing classes, which span a range from intro sewing for beginners, to advanced techniques like draping and fitting. You can learn specific techniques (like Beginning Serging), Tips and Tricks to Better Sewing, or even create an entire garment from start to finish (like a pair of Designer Jeans!). And you can also purchase items through Craftsy, like sewing patterns, yarn, or fabrics, which help get your DIY projects underway that much faster.[line]
