Further news regarding Craftsy/Bluprint from the TN Marketing CEO and President, Cal Franklin:
(Sent on behalf of TN Marketing)
Dear Valued Member of the Bluprint/Craftsy Community:
This is Cal Franklin checking in again with great news! You, the Bluprint/Craftsy community, have spoken and we are listening. You want a return to Craftsy, so let’s bring back the Craftsy brand!
We at TN Marketing believe in great customer service and I need to ask for your patience as we transition to a new Craftsy website over the next several weeks. I know that you will love it! In addition to all the great video and content that you are used to, we are adding exciting new benefits including Live Events, hobby related travel programs, and additional content to enjoy. This will be a seamless process as you will continue to have access to all the great content on the Bluprint website during this transition. Your subscription services, course materials, and individually purchased classes will continue through www.mybluprint.com until we transition to the new Craftsy website.
Craftsy will launch on or around September 1st. At the Craftsy launch, you will have the ability to once again purchase individual classes and subscriptions on the new Craftsy website. We believe in communication and will keep you posted via email and newsletters. Watch for announcements and special events happening on the launch date.
Bluprint will continue to receive and process subscription payments on behalf of Craftsy, LLC, a subsidiary of TN Marketing, and we will let you know when that will change. Craftsy LLC will act as the data controller of any information acquired from Bluprint that relates to you and/or constitutes “personal data” under applicable laws. This will enable your continued access to your account and the courses you have come to enjoy over the years.
Should you have any customer service issues during the transition, between now and when we launch on or around September 1st, please continue to contact Bluprint with any questions about your account. We will notify you as the transition to Craftsy is completed, and any customer service issues you might have regarding content, your membership, or your account can be addressed to the customer service team before and after the new Craftsy launch. Customer service is important to us and we will listen to you! Please see our FAQs.
We understand how important the Craftsy community is to all of you and we are sure that you will continue to enjoy our services and classes for many years to come. Welcome back Craftsy!
CEO and President
Good news from Craftsy/Bluprint! We received this message from Bluprint's CEO on Wednesday, July 1, 2020:
At the end of May, we shared that Bluprint would be closing its doors. The outpouring of support we received was amazing to see. So many of our instructors and customers wrote in with stories sharing how much Bluprint and our online classes mean to them.
Today I am happy to share that Bluprint classes will live on!
Our friends at TN Marketing will provide a seamless transition for current Bluprint customers and subscribers by preserving their access to Craftsy and Bluprint content. TN Marketing will honor previous customer purchases for classes, subscriptions and instructor agreements. This means your content will continue to be available to Craftsy and Bluprint customers, as well as a whole new audience through TN’s communities.
TN Marketing, is a Minneapolis-based global online video subscription and streaming business. You may be familiar with some of their brands such as National Quilters Circle, National Sewing Circle, Outdoor Photography Guide and Woodworkers Guild of America. TN Marketing has more than 20 years of experience creating content and communities that help engage people with their passions.
The TN Marketing team will be in touch later today or tomorrow to officially welcome you to the TN Marketing family and share more information about next steps.
On behalf of myself and the entire Bluprint team, we want to thank you for your support over the years. This journey has been the highlight of my professional career and we have all loved working with you. We wish you all the best as you continue your journey with TN Marketing.
As we learn more about what this means, we will keep you informed.
The news of the closure of Bluprint was a huge surprise and disappointment to me. This is the email that instructors received from the CEO of Bluprint/Craftsy on Friday, May 22, 2020:
It is with profound sadness and disappointment that I write you this email. When we started the business in 2010, our goal was to provide passionate enthusiasts access to the best teachers in the world. Your classes have made people's lives better across the globe.
After 10 years and virtually millions of customers served, NBCU has made the decision to close the Bluprint business over the next few months.
On behalf of all the Craftsy/Bluprint employees, I want to express our gratitude and appreciation to you for being with us on this journey. The remarkable work you have all done is unforgettable and has made a difference; however, our business is not sustainable in the current economic climate.
We also understand that you may have questions for us, and we will share additional details as they are available in the coming weeks.
Unfortunately, I have absolutely no control over the decision or the classes. All of the classes which I taught are the property of NBCU (NBC Universal) who purchased Bluprint/Craftsy about three years ago. While I'd love to get the classes and host them on my site, I think that option is highly unlikely. I cannot imagine a huge company like NBCU giving up all that content.
It is my sincere hope that they will figure out an easy way for customers to continue to access their classes. My guess is that it will take them a while to figure it all out, so I hope everyone will be patient.
Again, we have no control over this so will only be able to pass along info that we receive. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions that you have. They will definitely be the best source of information.
I have been in contact with several friends who still work at Bluprint and, from what I can tell, they were as surprised by the news as we were. I feel so much sadness for all of them. Losing a job in these tough economic times has to be very scary.
I will always be grateful to Craftsy/Bluprint for the wonderful opportunity they gave me. Being able to reach so many sewists around the world and having the Craftsy platform to teach classes definitely changed my life.
Please know that we are working hard to provide quality classes on our own website, ByAnnie.com. From technique tutorials to Add-on Videos to support patterns, our online class library is growing every day. You can find them at these links:
Again, thank you so much for your support and for your interest in my classes. I am hopeful that Bluprint/Craftsy will share a good solution with all of us soon!
