Free Lessons & Tutorials

Here at Shiny Happy World you’ll find hundreds of free tutorials teaching you how to quilt, sew, crochet, and embroider. Most of these tutorials include videos showing you exactly how to do something – as if you’re sitting right next to me while I show you.

You can work through these tutorials systematically – like a class. Or you can pick any pattern and work through the tutorial links embedded in that pattern. Every pattern has links to all the skills you’ll need – so you can think of every pattern as a little mini workshop. Choose the method that works best for you!

Don’t forget all the free patterns here. They’re a great way to try out a new craft or method to see if you like it.
