Free Class Day at Craftsy (and for a good cause!)


On May 18th, Craftsy is hosting Free Class Day to benefit DonorsChoose. For one day only, new members can choose one free course from a selection of favorite  classes, up to a $39.99 value! If you haven’t taken a class yet, Saturday is your chance to sign up for your first by choosing from classes in quilting, sewing, knitting, cake decorating, and more.

If they meet their goal of giving away 10,000 classes, Craftsy will donate $5,000 to DonorsChoose to fund arts education in public schools across the US. Existing members are not eligible for the free course offer, but will still receive a special treat.

    • Quick question. You said you got a free class. When I click a free class, it tells me to input my credit info and that it’s 39.99
      Does it actually charge me?

    • If you’ve ever taken a class before, it won’t be free (it’s for new “students” only) Also, you have to make sure it’s one of those listed under the free offering subheading ( If you do both of these, it should come up 0.00.

  4. What a wonderful idea! I would love to go to something like this, especially since it benefits others!

  5. Thanks for sharing! Great way to learn.
