Customer Reviews

  • A great way to learn

    by Lotusihyces

    I love this app! The classes are super informative, and the teachers are really great.

  • Best Learning Platform

    by ednna

    I love Craftsy and used to watch the videos from my desktop. The app now has all the features of the desktop version plus portability. I can watch the classes anywhere. I love the ability to make personal notes that only I will see, and the ability to interact with the instructor and others taking the class. It is one of my favorite apps.

  • Great App

    by RustyAvenger

    Love interacting with classes through the app. Very well designed.

  • Good help for beginners

    by Karen Hoppes

    I live in a RV and travel a lot so sometimes I'm not close to a quilt or knit store and can't get help. The videos on Craftsy are very well done, easy to follow, and get me to the next step. I like getting ideas from their patterns too.

  • Easy to use

    by Moonshadowrain

    This app is easy to use and navigate. All controls are initiative.

  • Love this app

    by A coconut

    I've used the app to take 3 sewing classes thus far. No glitches. Classes are divided up into sections for easy viewing. The classes themselves are well thought out, planned, recorded and presented. I am enrolled in 8 sewing classes altogether and I have already learned a great deal. I like to learn on my own, rather than in a group or even with an in-person teacher. This way is perfect. I can go as slow or as fast as I desire and if I need to ask a question I can do that, as well. This is a five-star ap.

  • Love it!

    by courtsport

    Great classes which give you in depth knowledge and skills by expert instructors. Highly recommend you browse the content and give it a try!

  • Craftsy

    by Qltcrzy

    Excellent app. Hours of instructions for the different classes. Like the option of viewing over and over and being able to access classes on my schedule

  • So convenient

    by In Germany

    I've taken classes before. This is so awesome for the choices and convenience of taking the class when and where you want to.

  • Great app

    by Anitamouse

    Love it

  • Great App & Good Instructors

    by JenAustin

    Love this app. Using it for learning to quilt and they pay attention to detail like doing close ups on techniques.

  • Great app

    by adrqr

    Is easier to navigate. Fun and useful.

  • Awesome app to have

    by Pkim5

    I love this APP

  • Very informative

    by Kitten45

    I love crafty! I have learned so much from these classes. I love being able to have access at anytime!

  • Love it

    by Mary Knockwood

    I love the craftsy app and the fact I can use it anywhere at any time

  • Happy user

    by Merrypuzzles

    Very happy with this app it works very well. Craftsy is a good site. I have had no bad issues.

  • Suggestion

    by TEO Bravo

    This app is actually quite good and I appreciate the improvements! **** I would love to be able to save or at least copy & paste some of the discussion text into my notes, however. (Users are able to copy/paste text on a PC but this function is disabled on the mobile apps.) The instructor's answers to questions often contain very useful information I want to be able to keep and it would be so handy to be able to paste it into my notes section. (Or even "Archive" a particular discussion into my notes...) Thanks so much for all your hard work.

  • Love it!

    by HDTV is funky

    I've purchased two classes from Craftsy. I'm waiting for a pattern for one of them to arrive in the mail, the other one I need to print and get started. I've been watching the tutorials to familiarize myself with the projects. Love that I can work on projects any time I want in my own home.

  • Great for Beginners

    by eggMCMuffin

    My first class was Crochet Lab with Vickie Howell and it was fantastic. I primarily use my iPad Mini and had no problem using this app to replay and navigate my course in an easy and intuitive manner. Course materials easily downloaded to iBooks, Evernote App, and Kindle App. The app made it easy for me to immediately enroll in the classes while browsing from the app - unlike Creativebug's new app (huge mistake for them)! Also I love the a la cart approach that Craftsy uses to sell courses rather than the subscription sales model. Would love it if this app could also be used to browse and purchase supplies & materials from this app! I have enrolled in many more Craftsy courses because of my positive experience with my very first course on this app.

  • Best app!

    by NansNuts

    I can't believe how great this app is. If you need help learning all things crafty, this is your one stop for everything!

  • In-App Purchases are too much!

    by TygerPawz 721

    $30 for a series of videos? Seems that I can search for this for much less. Maybe not the same videos, but something very similar. For example... $50 to learn how to sew "couture" dresses? They don't even look couture! The pattern for the dresses can be bought at JoAnn's for less than $5.

  • I Love Craftsy, hate the app

    by Peanuts crafty mom

    I love looking for new project ideas and inspiration on Craftsy, between it and Pinterest they're my "go to's", but the app bites. I can't find my patterns on the app. The only thing I CAN access is my classes. That's helpful. It seems to not load the same data in a search as going to the mobile website. Sorry guys, I'll just make a app-icon on my homepage and access it that way.

  • Purchased

    by Preston, CT

    I purchased this ap and purchased a class for quilting and it will not open. I'm glad I didn't have to pay anything!

  • Update removed important feature

    by pinkgrrl33

    What happened to 'My Pattern Library'? I had purchased a few patterns but now that I updated the app, the feature is gone. You also can't explore for any patterns either. Please bring this feature back and restore our purchases!!!

  • I would give it 50 stars!

    by Penny puppy

    I love Craftsy, I have been self-taught making quilts, art quilts, etc. I love the quality of the classes I have learned so much. It's opening doors for me that weren't possible since I have a demanding work schedule. The videos, class materials and teachers have been top notch. I only wish I could just buy and all access pass there are so many classes I want.

  • Fabulosity

    by JoeEddie

    If you love Craftsy, you will love this app. Whatever features they add will only make it better. Looking forward to years of using this app!

  • Works great

    by Superwidget

    Learning a ton app works great wonderful teachers love the painting classes

  • Fabulous content, app has a couple problems

    by Smuddpie

    Craftsy classes are the bomb, but a few issues I am having with the app. When I use the 30 sec back button, every time the video gets back to the point where I tapped the button, it loops back 30 seconds again endlessly. Scrubbing is the only way I have been able to get out of it without closing the app and starting again, but it is extremely difficult to scrub only small amounts. I would also like to be able to edit or delete notes, but I can't find a way.

  • New app version

    by Doorsgirl100

    This app makes watching my Craftsy classes so easy. Everything works great from video quality to buffering. Some who want to use it to look at patterns or buy supplies may be disappointed but you can still go through your web search and access those features with a bookmark.

  • Classes only

    by Weetiepie

    If you're looking for patterns, this app is NOT for you! This app only allows you to look at classes that you have to pay for! I have already paid for patterns and I thought I could just use this app to access them. Wrong!

  • Able to access 1/10 th of the site with this app

    by Liztes22

    If you only want to watch classes this app works fine. If you want to shop for supplies, see others projects, see patterns and explore all the classes, this app doesn't work. You can't shop at all, can't access patterns and can only see a few of the available classes. Time to delete.

  • Can not access my patterns

    by Betsy182

    The app sure looks great...too back it doesn't do a single thing! (. Not only can I don't access my already purchased patterns but there doesn't seem to be any FAQ section either so now I have to wait for tech support or just buy a new pattern to use today and waste my money. I really hope this is an anomaly !

  • I've learned so much

    by GeorgeneH

    Quality instruction from quality instructors. I love "attending class" in my loungewear while eating breakfast and enjoying my coffee. Thanks to my iPad and Craftsy.

  • Exactly what I need when I need it!

    by Namaste.ons

    Outstanding platform! Being disabled, I can't commit to getting out to take classes, now I don't have to! I can't thank you enough Craftsy! The quality of the videos is fabulous. The quality and knowledge of the instructors is exceptional. One word description would be EXCELLENCE!

  • Wonderful App

    by jbstagg

    Used to use this app on my iPhone, then I got an iPad...This app makes it so much more easy to either learn a new craft, or even improve on crafts I've already learned. It's convenient, which I love (especially since my work schedule doesn't allow for me to enroll in off-line classes). Love, LovE, LOVE this app!!!

  • Amazing App!

    by Sweetkay 21

    This app is amazing and very helpful when I am sewing. I love I can view my purchased videos on the go in great quality. Awesome app!

  • Love it

    by Dreamer0201

    I love, love, love this site. I only do the painting classes, but recommend it.

  • Love the accessibility!

    by PersnicketyPeer

    With this app I can use it on my iPhone or iPad and take it wherever I go!

  • Great App

    by Poab67

    Awesome learning love the mini pizza dough lesson.

  • Great site for life-long learners

    by Bella1665

    Craftsy is a wonderful app for people like me who are curious and always looking to explore new areas. The teachers are excellent and the handout materials are very helpful. I am hoping that more craft areas will be added to the app, such as ceramics, glass and wood. I have been frustrated that the patterns for the sewing classes take so long to arrive. Perhaps a coupon code could be used at Craftsy's store instead of the current method. The step by step lessons work well in craft areas but do not work as well in fine arts where individual creativity needs to be encouraged.

  • Wonderful App

    by FiberFreak

    I love the Craftsy platform. Clean site that is easily navigated. Great classes with interesting instructors. Lots of variety and they are always adding new courses.

  • Gotta love it!

    by Jtresor

    I have 87 classes and love to watch it on my iPad. It goes with me for all projects and is so easy to follow. The 30 sec button is so handy! Thanks to all the craftsy team!

  • Love It

    by QuiltNoah

    Have over 30 Craftsy classes. Each one is awesome and the instructors really know their craft.


    by Skinchic

    I am learning so much! I need to revisit my classes frequently due to the detailed nature of the work. Where else can you pay for a class and take it over and over as many times as you want? At any time of night or day? This platform is the work of a genius!

  • Love this App!

    by PrincessMommie

    I have learned so many new things via the Crafty website - this app makes it so much easier. Love it!

  • Craftsy

    by Brnsug63

    Sorry, not what I expected. Deleting it

  • Dec 15 Update

    by Cherita Montoney

    I WAS loving the app. Not liking this update at all. I want to watch the videos I have already purchased, but instead they are hidden in a text menu. PLEASE, either give the option to choose which screen you want first or if that isn't in your scope then please have my videos I'm in the middle of watching be on my screen first. In fact it would be great if it opened to the video I was most recently Watching!

  • Love this app but missing patterns!

    by Jolifemme

    I really like this app and it offers a user friendly ease of the video tutorials! It allows you to ask the designer question, take notes, pause, 30 second FF or RW.... The only thing I don't like is the opportunity to purchase sewing patterns on here (unless I can't find it).. Because the web version on my iPad is not a pleasant use either..... If you can add the purchase if patterns it would be a 5 star for me! Other than that I love this app for the video tutorial!

  • Slick as a whistle!

    by HFMadison

    If you are a Craftsy consumer and have an ipad, this is the way to watch Craftsy lessons. Love that each lesson video is broken done so that you can zoom right to a specific topic. Also appreciate the 30 second review. Nice App!

  • Perfect app

    by Cwassco

    I love this app. I bought a class on here with Lisa Niven Kelly and she is super

  • Love this app!

    by KNJ2013

    Love, love, love this app and Craftsy, too! I get such a kick out of these classes. I've learned a lot and always look forward to see what's new!

  • Craftsy classes

    by Alaska Quilter

    Craftsy has been a great way for me to learn new quilting, knitting and baking skills. I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to access the classes at my leisure. I decided to download the app and it made my access to my classes so very easy and fast, so I could get to enjoying my classes!! You will not be disappointed.

  • I wish It would FINISH downloading!

    by Lacemaker 427

    EVERY time I turn my iPad 5 on, this app tries to download...again! It has been trying for 2 weeks! I wish I could write about the app, but I've only ever seen it on this page of the AppStore <> Phooey!

  • Excellent service with the app and through the Craftsy site

    by lveeck

    It is sometimes difficult to input pattern ordering information for classes through the iPad app (otherwise, the app is absolutely terrific). I was lost as to where to specify sizing and delivery information and posted my dilemma on a Craftsy classroom blackboard. Very quickly, and very politely, a Craftsy rep contacted me to provide assistance. My experience has been extremely positive.

  • Craftsy is a great application of modern technology!

    by Laurasews

    Craftsy offers many classes to teach sewing, baking, knitting, etc. I love the platform. Some of the classes are better than others, but for the price (compared to learning from these experts via videos or in person), it is a deal. Plus, you can ask questions and actually get responses. The only thing I would change is that I would like to be able to watch the classes even when I don't have an internet connection. It would be great to watch the classes on the airplane, for example.

  • The best, love it!

    by bettyboopper

    I can't rave enough about it. Beats TV.

  • Thrilled with craftsy

    by Flamingo Sun

    What a wonderful way to learn a new skill, and brush up on old favorites. Each lesson plan is well thought out and entertaining. Every class and instructor make me fell that I can accomplish and be successful at each step. And, I have it feels great. Thank you, I am addicted.
