Online learning

The Wall Street Journal ran a long feature article yesterday on, a site that offers online crafting courses.   “Craftsy has found tens of thousands of people are happy to pay $20 to $50 per class to learn and perfect their skills in a range of domestic arts and crafts.” says the Journal.

A quick browse of the site finds classes in Cake Decorating, Crocheting, Knitting, Food Crafts, Gardening, Jewelry, Paper Crafts, Quilting, Sewing, Spinning and Weaving.

But nothing on embroidery, cross stitch or other needle arts.  I wonder why?  It would seem that specilaty stitches, finishing techniques and design ideas would be good topics for online classes.

A link to the full article is here:
