Help Us Determine Which DonorsChoose.org Projects to Fund!

Posted by on Jun 6, 2013 in Cake Decorating, Knitting, Quilting, Sewing | Comments


We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated in Craftsy Free Class Day in May for people who had never taken a Craftsy class before. If you didn’t get a chance to take advantage of Craftsy Free Class Day, click here to browse our always free mini-classes in quilting, sewing, knitting, cake decorating and more!


Our goal was to sign up 10,000 new students in their first Craftsy class to make a $5,000 donation to DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose is an online charity which helps teachers request donations for school projects where school funding falls short. Thanks to you, we were able to double our goal! We’re excited to donate $5,000 to help fund arts and craft projects for classrooms across the U.S. You helped make this donation possible, and now we need your help to decide which projects to fund!

How can you vote? Follow the links below to visit the corresponding Facebook Page for each craft category and click “Share” on Facebook to log your vote and help spread the word about DonorsChoose.org! We’ll fund projects in the most-shared craft categories until all $5,000 is donated!
