I recently received an email about Craft Daily, the new site from F+W and Interweave. They call it the Netflix for Crafters.
Here is a little about this website from the news release:
CraftDaily.com, is an experience unlike any before, featuring over 100-hours of full-length, high-quality, fully-vetted instructional videos taught by renowned instructors including:
- Leading Knit/Crochet Designer Kristin Omdahl
- Quilts, Inc. Chief Creative Officer and “Quilting Arts TV” host Pokey Bolton\
- Foremost Mixed Media Artist and Best-Selling Author Pam Carriker
- Top Jewelry-Making Educator and “Beads, Baubles & Jewels” TV host Katie Hacker
- Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Stitch magazine Tricia Waddell
- Master Weaver, Spinner, and Fiber Artist Judith MacKenzie
The best part is that full-monthly access to CraftDaily.com is less than the cost of a single course elsewhere! Access to the site is available through a tiered-subscription program. Subscription options start at as low as $11.99 a month. The only thing needed is internet connection. Different subscription options offer full access or more specialized access to specific content.
The categories of videos include beading, crochet, jewelry, knitting, mixed media, quilting, sewing, spinning, and weaving. You can also search by instructor.
I decided to watch A Fiber Artist’s Guide to Color by Laura Bryant. I had never heard of her, but thought it would be interesting. I really learned a lot even though her medium is yarn. I also watched a great video by Pam Carriker and look forward to finishing that video by Leslie Tucker Jenison. You know, I might even check out the jewelry videos. Just what I need is another obsession!
Even though I own several of the videos on this site, there still were plenty I had never seen. And it was nice being introduced to a couple new-to-me artists.
If you have wanted to watch some of the videos from Interweave and had not yet decided to purchase, this is a great deal. You can watch a lot of videos in a month. They are also adding new ones all of the time. As of today there are 122 videos.
Check it out. It might just be what you need to fuel your next obsession. I’m off to try one of Pam’s techniques.
