Subscribers have received an email notification from CEO of TN Marketing, Cal Franklin, confirming that the Bluprint brand will be changed back to Craftsy. Whether or not they’ll revert back to the same logo, we’ll have to wait and see.
In a positive move that shows they are already listing to subscribers and their community, the site will relaunch of 1st September under it’s original brand name and include not only the features from Bluprint, but also new content such as live events and hobby related travel programmes.
As previously confirmed, all subscription services, course materials, and individually purchased classes will continue through the Bluprint until the transition to the new website is made.
From 1st September there will be the ability to once again purchase individual classes and subscriptions on the new Craftsy website.
Bluprint have updated their FAQs page at this time too – Bluprint FAQS
I’ll be watching out for further announcements and there are set to be special events happening on the launch date.
Welcome back Craftsy – It’s a big thumbs up and yay from me!
Well, for fans of the online craft education platform Bluprint (formally Craftsy), today’s announcement that TN Marketing have acquired ‘certain assts’ of the ailing business will come as very welcome news indeed.
Having signed up for the annual subscription (albeit at a discounted rate), only to be told soon after that it was the end of Bluprint was disappointing to say the least. Probably not as much however as for those subscribers who have purchased 100s of classes over the last decade (and there’s plenty of them out there!).
The home page on Bluprint has been updated with the latest communication from the CEOs of both companies confirming that all access to subscription services and individually purchased classes, course materials and patterns will continue. Hooray!
A quick look at the TN Marketing website indicates that they seem to be in the same field, although are perhaps a smaller outfit. I feel it’s definitely a positive move – they may even change the name back to Craftsy like so many fans wish!
I’m just thrilled to be able to continue watching Angela Walters’ True Up series whilst quilting and there’s no excuse not to try out the beginners EPP (English Paper Piecing) course now!
