I really want to start working on increasing my sewing skills. I feel like my sewing has improved a lot since I started, but I would really like for my clothing to have a more professional look. I’ve tried checking out books from the library, but just reading about sewing techniques isn’t always helpful. When it comes to learning about sewing I find it more helpful if I can watch a video of someone doing the technique that I’m trying to learn about rather than just reading about how to do it.

When I first started sewing I purchased an online sewing class from Craftsy that is geared towards beginners, 40 Sewing Techniques Every Sewer Should Know. I learned a lot from the class and I have referenced it while working on different sewing projects since it covers a variety of subjects like pressing seams, sewing sleeves and curves, adding bindings, interfacing, zippers, and buttonholes, and so much more. This class is definitely a great beginner course.
I’ve also “purchased” a few of the FREE classes on Craftsy. I said purchased because even though the class is free you still have to add it to your cart and “purchase” it before it’s added to your account. But don’t worry it’s 100% FREE. The free classes change so be sure to check out the FREE classes often to see what’s available.
Last year I was able to “purchase” a free zippers class that I’ve often referenced when inserting invisible zippers. I’ve sewn quite a few projects with invisible zippers now, but it took me a while to get used to the process. And being able to reference that free zippers class from Craftsy was so helpful.
Since I learned so much from 40 Sewing Techniques Every Sewer Should Know and the free classes that I’ve purchased. I want to take more online sewing classes from Craftsy. I’ve been thinking about which class I would like to purchase. But I’ve been having a hard time deciding on just one. I’ve seen so many sewing classes about items that I’m interested in like sewing.
I really want to learn how to sew bras and other lingerie. I would also like to get better at sewing pants (my first attempt at making jeans was ok, but I want to be better than ok). And I’m also interested in learning how to achieve a better fit when using sewing patterns. There are several classes on each of these subjects.
Because there are so many classes that interest me. I’m thinking about signing up for Craftsy Unlimited. Well, they actually just changed the name from Craftsy Unlimited to Bluprint. With Blueprint, you can stream any class in the Craftsy catalog for just $10 a month. With most classes on Craftsy costing between $20 to $40 and Bluprint only costing $10 a month. I think it would be cheaper to sign-up for Bluprint and pay $10 a month vs. buying one class a month.
Before, I make the leap of paying $10 a month for Bleprint. I’m going to try the FREE 7-day trial and test out of few of the classes that I’m interested in. I’ll post another blog post next week letting you know what I think about Bluprint. But if you want to sign up for the FREE 7-day trial just click on the link below.
In addition to sewing, Bluprint also offers Knitting, Quilting, Cooking, Baking, Photography, Art, Jewelry, and more craft-related classes.
