Farthingales believes in the importance of classes - "Why spend time reinventing the wheel, if you can be taught how to make one?". Canceling the "in store" classes was a hard decision to make, but classes can't be run with only 1 or 2 students...unless, it's an on-line class! Farthingales is now offering some Craftsy Classes (now on the "Blueprint" site. When you click on a class link you'll be redirected to the Craftsy website where you can preview the class and opt to purchase the class. You will be purchasing directly from Craftsy.
