Anytime. Anywhere. Always.
Online quilting classes may be the perfect solution for you, especially if you can answer 'yes' to any of the following questions...
How did you do?
I know I answered 'yes' to several of them.
As a quilt teacher, I'm always on the lookout for new techniques and ideas to share with my students. I found Craftsy a couple of years ago and have purchased and taken several (35 as of May 1, 2017 - with 'Wild Quilting' being my most recent) of their online classes.

Based on my experiences, I am happy give them my double 'thumbs up'.
I am also an affiliate for Craftsy.com which means that for every purchase of an online class or product that you make from them by clicking through to their site from a link on mine, I receive a small commission that helps me keep this website running.
All of the online classes you subscribe to are hosted on the Craftsy site.
Fabric.com is one of my go-to sources when I've got yardage to buy...check out their discounts on multiple yards when you sign up for their giveaway—click the image below. Winners will be selected and notified via the email address provided on 6/1.
That means no matter where you are or what computer you're on—there's even an app for it so you can watch on mobile devices. (Personally the best time I find is on my iPad in the bathtub behind a locked door!).
As long as you have access to the Internet, you have access to your online class.
You don't need to take up your own disk space on your computer to store these video classes.
And if your computer crashes—mine has three times in the past several years—you simply log back onto Craftsy. Voila! Your online class(es) is still there.
It doesn't expire.
Everything is found on your account page. When you sign in, it is where you start.
Class materials and supply lists, as well as, 'Class Questions'--the place to interact with your instructor--are all found under the individual classes you've signed up for.
If you'd like, you can share your projects by uploading photos of them. Other members of the class can then comment and ask questions.
It is a really nice, well thought out system.
Craftsy has done a couple of really sweet things for their customers, in my humble opinion.
First, they have a 100% happiness guarantee with their online quilting classes. (At this point, December/2017, I have not returned a single class.)
What this boils down to is you have the option to get a refund within 30 days from the date of your enrollment in the class. (Click here to read about it on their blog.)
Unlike a standard quilting DVD, where you watch it and then you're on your own, with Craftsy you can post questions directly to the class, INCLUDING to the instructor.
And the instructors respond!
How cool is that?!!
It's the next best thing to being in an actual quilting class.
