Craftsy is an online platform based in Denver, Colorado that delivers crafts education, from quilting and knitting to cake decorating and paper craft, via high-definition interactive video tutorials and downloadable workshops. It also offers community project forums and craft supplies, including independent designer patterns. It was launched by the company Sympoz Inc in July 2011, and within a year Craftsy had attracted over half a million enrollments. On May 10, 2017, NBCUniversal announced that it had acquired Craftsy.
Craftsy exists to empower self-expression and create joy. We're a growth company with the heart of a startup that knits together content and eCommerce with innovative technology. Located in sunny, stunning Denver, we're five years into being and there’s still no shortage of impactful problems to solve as we endeavor to upend the craft, education, publishing and retail industries all at once.
It has raised over $50 million in its fourth round of funding, led by Stripes Group. Current investors, which include Foundry Group, Tiger Global, Adams St. Partners, Access Venture Partners and Silicon Valley Bank, also participated in the round, which is earmarked to fund strategic growth.
Craftsy is a wonderful company for helping those to learn how to do something new or to give continuing instructions on something to build further expertise. The classes are reasonably priced on special sales. The instructors are very good at teaching and demonstrating their craft. The programs can be seen at any convenient time and stopped or gone back to see a demonstration. I love how the instructors smile and sometimes laugh when teaching. They make the learning process easier and more fun, like a friend teaching you something. Craftsy is my favourite to work with and I mainly am learning to quilt and a little bit of watercolor.
