    Default The most economical way to use Bluprint / Craftsy

    As of today, Craftsy is gone. It has been replaced by Bluprint. I discovered an interesting way to save money using Bluprint, at least for now.

    A couple of times now, I've wanted to buy a Craftsy class. I was given the option to pay $40 or to pay $7.99 for the very same class with a one-month free trial of Bluprint. I took the Bluprint option a couple of days ago.

    Except that description turned out to be backwards--which was a bit frustrating. The class didn't show up in my class list. The email said, " Welcome to Bluprint ... Unlimited viewings ... Yada, yada, yada." It also said that a one-month subscription includes a single forever class (an annual subscription includes 12 forever classes). They gave me a coupon code, and I used it to buy my forever class.

    I then made a calendar entry to cancel my Bluprint subscription in 28 days.

    Bottom line, you can buy one Craftsy class for $7.99 each month that you sign up for a Bluprint subscription. And, in effect, you have unlimited previews to decide which class to buy.

    I can't imagine this business model will be successful (think QNNTV), but for now this is a super good deal!

    After reading from several independent Craftsy shop owners, I'm not impressed with the way Bluprint treated Craftsy folks.

    I think you will also find that you have free shipping with Bluprint, with no limit on little you have to spend. About once a quarter I get a coupon for $10 off. I try to find a notion that rarely goes on sale, like Angela Walters rulers, and use the $10 off coupon on that with the free shipping.

    I frequently get 24 hour hour advance notice of the Bluprint sales (before it goes out to non Bluprint annual subscribers.)

    I'm pretty sure I am at least breaking even with my annual Bluprint subscription.

    I do agree that the independent Craftsy owners were treated very poorly.

    Thank you for these links. I am appalled by the way Craftsy/Bluprint/NBC has treated their instructors and designers. And I'm quite unhappy about the culling of pattern shops. Craftsy was my go-to place for patterns; now Ill have to jump all over the net.

    I recently purchased software called Audials 2019. I find I can capture any video played on my laptop (I couldn't make prior versions of Audials capture Craftsy; might have been my fault). I think I'll be making just-in-case archival copies of my forever classes! Who knows what "improvements" are coming down the pike!
