Knitting Quilting Sewing Cake Decorating Drawing Painting CookingFor anyone who’s been reading Estate for awhile, you may remember back to my 14 goals by 2014. One of those goals was to finish sewing a maxi dress I started well over three years ago. At this point the straps are seemingly unfixable, and the project has been set aside for a future more-enabled me to deal with. Until then, I’d really like to up my (non-existent) sewing skills and at least sew a small something.

So! Today I signed up for a sewing basics class on Craftsy. Craftsy is super cool because it’s an online community offering both free and premium classes in a huge variety of crafts. The sewing class is totally free and I can follow the instructional videos at my own pace (the course is available forever). I also signed up for a figure drawing class, which is perfect because I’ve always found drawing people the most difficult part of illustration to master.

Would you sign up for an online class? I’d love to hear!
