I review Craftsy sewing classes in the comfort of my own home. Some of the classes changed the way I sew and helped me learn new techniques!
I love finding ways to keep up my sewing education in an accessible and affordable way. Craftsy is back and all of their fantastic classes are available to take again! They create really high quality videos with so much information from experts in their field.
Obviously, my favorites are all of their sewing classes, but they have so many different hobbies in their classes that there is something for everyone. Everyone in the family could take a class and learn from Craftsy!

Why I Love Craftsy for Sewing (And as a Mom!)
I remember hearing about Craftsy many years ago when I was early in my sewing journey. I didn’t have a large sewing budget so I had to pay attention to what I paid for.
Back then I bought a couple of sewing classes to watch at home, and it opened up a whole new world for me. I could afford a class or two when they were on sale, and I could continue my sewing education and learning while having babies and toddlers crawled around me. It was so uplifting, and I was happy to review all the classes I took and loved.
Craftsy was sold and became something else, but then it was shut down. I was devastated since I felt like Craftsy really added to the online sewing community. I was so ecstatic to hear that another company bought Craftsy and would be returning it to it’s original glory. I couldn’t wait to take my beloved classes again while trying new classes.
If you are a beginner sewist, or a sewist trying to find ways to improve without spending too much money, this is a great website to use, learn, and improve. You can pay a yearly fee to have access to all of their classes or you can buy each class individually. It depends on what you are looking for.
I love that Craftsy gives access to high quality online classes for a really great price!
I love Craftsy as a mom because anytime my kids are interested in something, we can go on and find a class for them to watch. Baking, embroidery, crochet, photography, drawing, painting, etc.: Craftsy has it all!
If your kids are bored this summer or you homeschool your kids this is a great way to give them access to learn from experts from home. It would be fun to take a class with each kid so they can learn with you and give them some one on one time!
We are a Celiac/gluten free family, and there are even gluten free baking classes that we can take!
