When I say “This is the place” I’m actually referring to Skillshare. My favourite online site for learning new skills! Seriously. I’ve taken so many Skillshare classes and I love to learn crafts online; I can do it from my couch in my jammies.
Who doesn’t want that as an option?!
There are plenty of Craft tutorials right here on the blog: browse the Crafts section for lots of crafty ideas!
2015 was the year I learned how to knit and I absolutely love it! It’s a very relaxing craft; same as Crochet. I highly recommend trying it for yourself!

“Crochet isn’t just for grannies anymore! Nope, crocheting is a portable, meditative skill that can add a little zen to your life and some hip accessories to your closet. In this class, you’ll create a pair of fingerless mitts for your own two hands with your own two hands.
In the process, you’ll learn how to start any crochet project with a chain, how to do a single crochet stitch, how to customize the size of your crochet project and how to sew finished crochet edges together.
We’ll also discuss different yarns, how to read a yarn label and how to choose the correct hook for a project.
