One thing the Internet has in abundance – at least for us crafty-type people – is free patterns. Yes, there are zillions that cost money as well and they are worth every penny. As a quilt designer, I know how much work goes into designing a quilt and writing a pattern. But I still love a freebie 🙂
Today I’m going to concentrate on Craftsy. This is truly a crafters/artists/DIYer’s paradise. Patterns, classes, materials, articles … and many of them free. Yes, classes too.
But I want to give you some numbers first –
My personal numbers –
I’ve downloaded 42 patterns from Craftsy.
I’m enrolled in 32 classes.
There are 107,258 patterns from Indie Designers online, ready to be downloaded.
More than 700 classes.
14,083 FREE patterns from sewing, knitting, painting, cooking etc etc (I did notice a few patterns with prices, but hey – no search engine is perfect)
Yes, I do love Craftsy, it’s one of my favorite places to go online. And because I’ve never had anything but superb service from them I am part of their Affiliate Marketing Program. If you click on the links in this post, I could earn a little bit of money for it, but the price you will pay is never higher than the regular or sale price Craftsy offers to everyone. I will always be upfront about any affiliate marketing programs I’m involved in. Want to know more? Just ask me! 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
