Online Community for Cake Decorators: Are you Craftsy?

My obsession with Craftsy might make me sound like a broken record, but if you've ever wondered what the deal is, here's the answer. Not only have I watched more than a dozen Craftsy online cake decorating classes and read every single cake decorating blog post and tutorial, but I'm also an affiliate. For these reasons, and more, I totally "get it" about what Craftsy is and how it works. But for those of you who may be still in the dark or on the fence, here's the low down.

Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. These are classes that, once purchased, you own for life. They also have a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from cake decorating to photography to cooking to painting to sewing, and more.

Why take a class online? Craftsy courses provide you the convenience of a world-class instructor in your home, whenever you want to learn. Online education, no matter what subject, is a great alternative to in-person classes for a number of reasons.

With many online learning opportunities being on-demand, you are able to learn at your own pace, anytime. Online learning is a fantastic alternative to in-store craft classes for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house. It also allows you to watch a troubling section over-and-over again, so you can see exactly how a technique is carried out, or refer back to your class for relevant concepts before beginning any new projects.  I've watched and rewatched over and over. "Pause and Rewind" is my middle name.  

You'd be hard pressed to find a real life instructor who would back up and repeat, repeat, repeat... But with online classes that you own, this isn't an issue.

If you need more convincing, here's a selection of little "freebie" mini classes for you to check out at no cost! Go ahead! Take a tiny taste, for FREE, of what's waiting for you at Craftsy!

So what do you think? Are you Craftsy?
