    Bluprint/craftys is closing ?!

    I have totally missed that blueprint craftsy is closing. I found this letter of Facebook
    It is a answer from blueprint.

    May 28, 2020, 1:35:53 PM MDT

    Hi there, I’m Arnold with Bluprint.

    I apologize for the delay in responding to your message and appreciate your patience as we work through the high volume of messages we have received this week.

    As mentioned in the message from our CEO posted on the Bluprint site (Letter to our Bluprint Customers), Bluprint is unfortunately closing over the next few months. I also want to address your concerns as well as answer your questions.

    First, if you have purchased individual classes, we are looking at various options to allow you to receive a copy of your purchased classes. This includes individual classes purchased with own forever credits. Currently there’s not a way to download those classes directly from your library, but we will provide more information soon on how you can receive a copy of your purchased classes.

    Additionally, we are planning to issue prorated refunds for paid subscribers based on the last day our service will be available. We will also of course let you know once that date is finalized.

    Currently, our supply shop is still open. So, if you need supplies to complete any projects, you can still order as normal, until 11:59pm (MDT) on May 31, 2020. After that time, unfortunately, no further orders for supplies will be accepted.

    Please know that our team is working quickly to finalize details. As we work through this process, we will share additional details. Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.

    If you have further questions that do not pertain to the closure or downloading your content, please write to [email protected]. Have a great rest of your day.

    Regards,

    Arnold

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I know, I just heard. This is crazy. I am concerned about all the classes I own and all my patterns purchased. I hope they will be providing these all to us. Sadly we may not have any way to go after them once they close.

      I received an email, stating that they are trying to work something out about the subscriptions. But I just finished downloading all my patterns, just in case. I mean most were free, but I had a few paid ones. Sad to see them close their business.
      There are no perfect quilts, because I am a imperfect quilter.

      I haven’t bought any classes or patterns on Bluprint, but have several I bought from Craftsy. So I’m guessing that’s why I didn’t get any notification that they were closing down. I’m hoping someone posts here how to download “forever” items once it’s announced or I’m going to lose everything!

        I got an email from them too. At the least I'm going to go to all my classes (all Craftsy) and make sure I have all the reference materials downloaded from classes. It is very disappointing to me because I bought several craftsy classes.

          Usually when you purchase a pattern you can print them, instead of printing I save them as a pdf to my desktop, or a specific folder. Works great on my computer, not a phone or iPad.

            A letter was sent out today via email. Bluprint has a new CEO and you will be able to access all your classes. See Letter below.
            Dear Valued Member of the Bluprint Community:

            We are excited to announce that your access to your subscription services and individually purchased classes will continue. In addition to classes, your access to course materials and course patterns will also continue.

            Our friends at TN Marketing have acquired certain assets of the Bluprint business, and the Bluprint and TN teams are working together to ensure a smooth transition. As part of this transition, TN Marketing has agreed to honor previous customer purchases for classes and subscriptions and will preserve your access to Bluprint content.

            The Craftsy/Bluprint team have spent the last decade working to build the world’s best learning content and community. We are confident that TN Marketing will continue this legacy and feel that their customer centric approach, deep understanding of content and hobbies, and technical acumen make them uniquely positioned to do so.

            I speak for myself and the entire Bluprint staff in saying that it has been a profound honor to be a part of this decade long journey, and that you are in good hands moving forward. With that, I’d like to introduce Cal Franklin, CEO of TN Marketing. Thank you, stay safe, and craft on.

            Sincerely,

            John Levisay
            CEO, Bluprint (Craftsy)

The TN Marketing and Bluprint community combined will now represent over 3.5 million hobbyists with over 17 million crafting classes sold, and will continue on as the leader in the crafts and hobbies education space.

                My team and I have long been connecting passionate crafters with their hobbies and providing online learning and instruction. We understand your passion and are focused on continuing the excitement, enthusiasm and loyalty you have had for Bluprint, and previously, Craftsy.

                There are many exciting things to come and our team is working fast in concert with the Bluprint team. Rest assured that access to your classes, and subscriptions will remain available.

                We understand how important this community is to you and we are honored to be joining it. Stay tuned for more communications coming soon.

                  I still have all my classes downloaded.
                  Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
