I’d be the first to admit that I have learned much of what I do as a crafter online. From researching on Flickr to Pinterest to just feeling lucky and hitting Google, I’ve managed to learn how to work headpins and wire, knit the right way (after learning from our encyclopedia decades ago using plastic chopsticks!) and discovered free-form crochet.
Nowadays, we’re lucky to come across crafting classes that run the gamut of crafts you may already know as an expert, or a new interest you’re looking to learn more about. Below are some of the latest class offerings from Craftsy. Check them out by clicking on the pics below.

No matter how simple a task may be, there are many things we can learn from others who may be as good if not better than us. When you are in the business of creating, whether it be for yourself or for sale to the public, you can never have enough new ideas to toy with or incorporate into your own work. How may times have you had an “Aha!” moment where you suddenly realized there IS a better way than the one you’ve been accustomed to?
I have discovered this from the craft fairs and classes I’ve attended personally and the videos and websites I’ve visited for guidance. You never know! As I always say, I learn something new everyday.
