Craftsy Class Reviews

This page is devoted to reviews of the Craftsy  classes I have taken.  I find reviews helpful before I buy something, and I hope you do too.

Before you read further, I must tell you that I am a Craftsy  affiliate.  What does that mean?  Well, if you click through to Craftsy  using any of the links on this page and you purchase a class, I DO get a small commission on your purchase.  I use these commissions to fund giveaways on my blog.  I enjoy giving things away, but don't have any sponsors to fund it regularly.  So these commissions do the trick.  

While I am an affiliate, I want to assure you that these reviews are wholly my own opinions!  Craftsy does not pay me for reviews or even ask me to review these classes.  I give you my honest opinion.  While I haven't taken a bad class yet, if I do, you can be sure that I will tell you so!  I personally don't like spending my precious fabric budget on bad classes.  It irks me.  So I wouldn't expect you to like it either.

So here we go...these are the quilting classes I have taken:

These are the machine quilting classes I've taken:

Free quilting classes I have taken:
Sewing classes:
  • Sew Little Nursery Design - not finished with the class yet.  This was probably the first sewing class I bought on Craftsy, and I think the instructor covers some great techniques that will be really helpful as I learn to sew things other than quilts.  BUT, she is a little too energetic and fast-talking for me to watch this class at my normal viewing time (bedtime, of course).  
  • Design and Sew an A-line Skirt - I didn't know anything about garment sewing before taking this class, and I learned a lot.  I still haven't made a skirt yet, but I feel pretty confident that if I follow the instructions in this class, I will be able to make one that fits me perfectly.
  • Tailoring Ready to Wear - not finished with the class yet.
  • Pattern Drafting from Ready to Wear - not finished with the class yet.
  • 40 Techniques Every Sewer Should Know - Gail Yellen - not finished with the class yet.
Free Sewing Classes:
Food and Cooking Classes:
  • Artisan Bread Making Class - I'm not finished with this class yet, but it is good so far.  I am hoping to bake some homemade bread over the holidays.  I ran out and bought all the necessary stuff!
  • Classic Croissants at Home - not finished with the class yet.
  • A Modern Take on the Mother Sauces - not finished with the class yet.  My one complaint so far is that some of the ingredients used to make some of his modern versions aren't readily available to the average home cook.
  • Perfect Pizza at Home a Free Pizza Making Class - this one is taught by the same instructor as the Artisan Bread Making Class.  He is excellent.  My most recent homemade pizza experience was rather dismal, but now that I've taken this class I am ready to try again!
Fine Art Classes:
Other Classes:

More to come, no doubt!  I hope these help.

If you have any questions about some of the classes listed above, please let me know.  Just because I haven't finished the entire class, doesn't mean I don't have an opinion about how it is going so far.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
