There are so many resources out there for to learn sewing skills that can take you from start to finish. But, often times, we have to Google “how to edge stitch” or “how to insert an invisible zipper”. Then we have to comb through dozens of tutorials until we find the one that bests match with our style of learning.
I have been a longtime fan and student of the Craftsy platform. I have learned a ton from these classes. There are so many wonderful things that I love about this platform, such as:
* Qualified instructors
* HD video
* Ability to ask questions to the instructor and class
* Ability to take notes within the class that you can refer to
* Lifetime access
* Detailed list of supplies and recommended resources to continue your practice
* They always have sales!
* New classes are added very often
* 30 day trial period per class
Now, to the list. These are all classes that I have purchased with my own money and have found the most beneficial for the fashion sewer.
