Winter is a great time to learn a new hobby, start a new DIY project or learn a new skill. Unleash your creativity, perfect your technique and make something meaningful with all sorts of online classes and craft projects from Craftsy.

I took the Craftsy Knitting for Beginners Class a while back and found it helpful and really easy to follow. Love being able to watch the instructional videos as many times as I want and at my own pace and schedule. Much less intimidating than an in-person class, too. I think I’m going to do a couple of their pet photography classes next!

Online classes are accessible from just about any internet-connected device including PC, Smartphones and iPad. In addition to working in all the major browsers, Craftsy apps are also available for both iOS and Android.

Until now, Craftsy has only offered classes for purchase on an individual basis, but we got some exciting news about a new membership that lets you watch all the classes you want! It’s like Netflix, but with unlimited interactive online classes in Photography, Cooking, Knitting, Cake Decorating, Weaving…even a whole course in Cinnamon Rolls from Classic to Contemporary. Pretty much anything you’d like to learn to do, Craftsy offers classes.

While you can still purchase individual a la carte classes if you prefer, the advantage of the unlimited subscription is that you can binge-watch hours of instructional video before deciding which supplies to buy to start a new project, craft or hobby. Is binge-crafting a thing? I think it should be. Anyway, a month of Unlimited costs about the same as buying one class a la carte.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s the perfect time to create some handmade gifts for those close to your heart. Learn to make Cake Pops or create some Handmade Greeting Cards. A Craftsy subscription also makes a GREAT Valentine’s Day gift idea if your special someone is the creative type or wants to be.

Right now you can try a FREE 7-Day Trial of Craftsy Unlimited. If you can imagine it, you can create it with the help of Craftsy’s online instruction.
