The Craftsy website is one of the premier online destinations for craft lovers to learn about and make all kinds of fun and creative crafts. Craftsy is most well known for their online classes and workshops, but the website has also recently launched a Craftsy Patterns section where crafters can buy a large variety of patterns. Most of the patterns on the site are creations from the Craftsy community of independent designers and crafters.
One of the missions of Craftsy is to support indie designers, and the Patterns area accomplishes just that. Patterns available for everything from clothing to doll accessories are featured on the Patterns page, making finding the exact pattern you want a breeze. Buying a pattern from Craftsy also ensures that the pattern is original and unique, something that larger corporate pattern makers can’t necessarily guarantee. When you buy a pattern from Craftsy, you are supporting a real person and their small craft business!
Patterns for sale on Craftsy push the limits of creativity and innovation because they are created by craft lovers around the world for use by other like-minded crafters. Before buying a pattern on Craftsy, you can read all about the designer, where they are from, why they create patterns and what they love most about crafting. This level of personal interaction is lacking on many other pattern purchasing sites, but is an integral part of the Craftsy experience.
Buying a pattern from Craftsy also helps to support the many small business owners and independent designers that use sites like Craftsy to build their businesses. Craftsy supports these independent crafters by making it easy for customers to find and buy the great products listed on the site. When you buy a pattern from Craftsy, you can have the peace of mind to know that your money is going to a real person who is dedicated to providing quality products, and not just some huge, faceless company.
The pattern categories on Craftsy include Crocheting, Embroidery, Felting, Jewelry, Knitting, Paper Crafts, Quilting and Sewing Patterns. Visitors can choose a category to browse, search for a specific type of pattern, or glance over the Featured Patterns sidebar for inspiration. Within each section, the top 20 patterns for each category are also displayed so that visitors can see what is trendy and hip. Patterns are very affordably priced, with most patterns selling for under US $10.
Sell Your Own Patterns
If you’re an independent designer and want to sell your own patterns on Craftsy, the process is simple and free. Craftsy does not charge any fees for listing or selling patterns, and buyers pay directly through PayPal after a purchase is made. Buyers are also able to download the patterns right from the pattern sales page, so sellers don’t have to worry about emailing patterns or getting in touch with buyers.
The Craftsy Pattern page is also a great place for buyers and sellers to come together. Once a buyer buys a pattern from a designer, they are notified each time the designer posts a new pattern. This creates customer loyalty and a real sense of community among all Craftsy users.
