    Craftsy quilting classes?

    Has anyone taken the on-line craftsy classes? Were they worth the cost? What did you like/dislike about them? I'm thinking of taking one but don't know much about them.

    They have a free block of the month class right now that you can look at to see if you like the setup.

    I am currently taking 3 classes. They are worth every penny. Well done, easy to follow, very clear and concise. My favorite is Quilting big quilts on a small machine. I can take a class at my leisure, return to an earlier lesson. I would only buy when they are on sale. But yes, I think they are worth it. Try one.

    I also have taken them and do buy when they are on sale and as said previously you can start and stop at your leisure, take notes, ask questions, etc. They are great and taught by very well know knowledgeable teachers. Try one, you will be glad you did..

    I'm following the free block of the month. I really like how it is done. You can also print off the patterns. Each month they have 2 quilt blocks and you learn new techniques. Check it out

    I am also taking 3 classes from www.craftsy.com. I love their classes. I just stated in another thread that you can ask them to lower their price for the class and they will. I asked if they could lower one of their classes to $15.99 and they accepted immediately. They want to teach. Try the free BOM first, if you want. You might love it. I do! I can't wait for April 1st to do blocks 7 and 8.

    I'm also taking 3 classes. I only register for the classes when they are on sale but they are great classes. The instructors make you feel like you're right there with them and you can ask questions. I have learned so much from these classes.

    i signed up for the quilting one, but realized after i started watching that i was ahead of what it showed. i did get a couple of tips from it and the instructer was great. i should have went for the advanced quilting but of course i got the email describing that one after i had already paid and watched part of the first. lol! From the comments i saw, the beginner quilters were VERY happy with the class and I have read other comments on this board about 2 months back that overall people are pleased with them.

    I am taking the free BOM and I purchased the Strip Paper Piecing when it was on sale--LOVE them both. Excellent teaching and being able to go back over things as many times as you need to without being a pain to anyone, picking it up anytime it fits your schedule or your insomnia--they are great! Between Craftsy, the Amazing tutorials here and some awesome bloggers in cyberspace I feel we are so incredibly blest to be quilting now.

    I agree. Start with the free Block of the month to see what it is all about (over 40,000 people can't be wrong!). You will get a newsletter offering various classes at half price. The nice things are that 1) you can watch then any time day or night 2) they never expire so you can go back for a refresher in a year or so and 3) they are just good!

    I, too, have signed up for several courses. I always sign up when the classes are on sale. I have been very pleased with the lessons. I love the fact that I can repeat lessons as often as I'd like. I am, especially, enjoying the free BOM. Since I am new at quilting, I have learned so much!

    I agree with these posts. The classes are great. You can learn things, which is the point. You can interact as much or as little as you want. Post pictures. Ask questions. It's great.
