Craftsy.com Growing by Tapping Community of Crafters by Mark Jaffe of The Denver Post. It’s hard to believe that we’ve grown so fast, as an independent business passionate about crafts. We’re so honored to be able to serve makers, like you, around the world every day.

    Just this week I was surprised to learn about a Home Decor Learning Center, located in Concord, CA. See the San Jose Mercury News story that describes where classes are offered and machines and instructions are available: http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-living/ci_22483417/creative-space-diy-home-decor?IADID=Search-www.mercurynews.com-www.mercurynews.com
    With the elimination of Adult Schools and many Home Economics Classes that used to teach some of these skills, I’m glad someone has seen the need to fill in. I have been recommend Craftsy to people I meet who are looking for craft/sewing instructions.
