Summer Time Madness…FREE Classes!

posted on May 20, 2015 by  |  posted under Uncategorized  |  36 Comments

Now that the kiddos are out of  school, is it possible you might a little more “free time”. No early morning drop offs, PTO meetings or concerts!
Keep learning this summer!

We know how much our HDS readers love crafts in all forms! Your talent is amazing. This is why we got so excited when we discovered Craftsy! We really think it’s the greatest idea and resource for so many of our addictions….ehhhh….hobbies! 😉

Craftsy offers video-based, interactive online classes for quilting, knitting, sewing, cake decorating, jewelry making, food, photography, gardening, and other passions. With over 500,000 class enrollments, Craftsy is the leading source for online education for crafters worldwide.

In informal terms, they’re classes about crafty things which you can do from the comforts of your own home! My husband works random hours and I can’t always commit to a structured class. Craftsy gives me the freedom to continue my education in a variety of topics without having to leave my babies with a babysitter. If that isn’t convincing enough, check out what kind of opportunities they have!

Want to learn how to create fondant frills for your daughter’s 3rd birthday cake? They’ll teach you in this class.


How about sewing? Here’s a basic class for those like me, who are new to the art of sewing a straight line ;). Learn how to make a basic A-line skirt. Wouldn’t this a great one for your teenager?


There are even some kid-friendly classes you can do WITH your kiddos!
Wouldn’t it be to fun to take this FREE course, then host a homemade pizza party?


Did we mention it’s FREE?

HERE are a list of all the other FREE classes!

Like this one.


They honestly have a TON to choose from, so take a minute and check it out.

Which class do YOU want to be a part of?

Wouldn’t this make a unique, fun gift for someone who has “everything”?

Classes range from free-$50.00, so totally an economical choice – especially since you don’t have to pay for gas now! Yes, there are even FREE patterns, classes and recipes.

(I was serious. Best site ever.)
You have to see these gorgeous fabrics.

We know you will love Craftsy as much as we do, so get on over there, enroll in a few classes and be sure to let us know how it went!

We can’t wait to see what you create!
