Craftsy was apparently bought by NBC Universal and became Bluprint. I own a great many classes that I mostly bought, a few were free, and since the change some of those classes have been 'retired', which means they no longer sell them, but more importantly, there is no longer any instructor to ask questions of. I also found out that instructors weren't ever even required to reply to questions...
“I can't say enough good things about craftsy and their customer support”
• Previous review
I've got many craftsy classes, and I bought virtually all of them on sale at the lowest prices they ever offer them. Just a short time of observing how they do things, such as having regular sales, I could see that if I waited for a bit I could get a class I wanted at the lowest price they ever do. Over all, I really love this company. I joined this website just over 2 years ago. It's true that some of the newer classes are getting shorter and with less content, but it's also true that some of the older classes should really have been edited when an instructor droned on and on about things that weren't relevant like their personal life. I've bought some lovely fabric from this website, most recently some that it's my understanding that they have made in Japan exclusively for themselves, and it's stunning, very beautiful, and feels very good quality as well. The customer support people have fallen over backwards to respond quickly and generously to the slightest query I've had. It's a refreshing change from other companies who don't seem to give a monkey's once they've got your money. In my experience, they have really seemed to care and wanted to make me happy. Just as one example, they've given me refunds when I haven't even asked for them. Some of the American instructors are extremely slow to respond, if they ever do, which is highly frustrating when you are stuck and want to proceed and don't know how, some of them are quick to respond, and I think perhaps it's the ones who really want to teach other people who respond more quickly and are more committed to doing that. Some of the instructors I think may be doing this more to promote their own websites that sell things than to teach the subjects. Sometimes it seems that way, and some of their prices are extremely high..The British instructors have always been extremely quick to respond, not that I'm prejudiced or anything. lol I really can't say enough good things about this company and their customer support. I just hope they stay around until I die. That's the only thing that's concerned me - you have lifetime access to your classes, but what if they cease trading before then?
