Free Online Classes Available Through Craftsy

Free Online Classes Available Through Craftsy

I shared with you last week that I purchased and began my first Craftsy class, Shuttle Tatting.  However, did you know that Craftsy also offers several classes that are 100% free?  All you need to do is create an account (if you don't already have a Craftsy account) and enroll!

 If you are looking for a new hobby taking a few of these free courses would be a great way to explore some new areas and find out what you like.  Personally, I have always wanted to take a course in cake decorating! 

Below is a link to each course and the short description provided by Craftsy.
