    Great Article in Wall Street Journal Today about Craftsy

    A very interesting story in today's WSJ about the origins of Craftsy, their business philosophy and some statistics about who has enrolled in the courses.

    That is an interesting article. I didn't know they had only been in business 18 months. I just happened to have found them by accident. I have three classes I signed up for but haven't started yet.

    I adore Craftsy- might as well send my paycheck directly to them for the number of classes I've taken! I fit their demographic pretty well too, except I'm younger than they mentioned in the article.

    I'm really glad they are doing well- and it was interesting to see that the instructors seem to be compensated well- I always worry if it is really worth their time to be committed to answer questions forever, but the contract must be such that big names are signing it.

    Thank you for the very interesting article,
    I also have joined up for a craftsy class, as I live in New Zealand it will be the nearest I get to some of the wonderful tutors you have in America. I certainly will be signing up for more quilting/knitting classes

    Really interesting, didn't know much about the company. I haven't taken one of their classes only because right now I don't have much time to do so, plan to look at it more closely in a few months when my work slows down. Thank you for sharing with us.
