I have quite a few classes on craftsy, now that it has opened back up, my profile doesn't exist and customer service can't find it either?! Very disappointed! What a waste of money for classes I can't even use.
I have purchased at least a dozen classes, before it changed hands.I was originally leary about not having a dvd copy, but they are always there when needed. The classes are great! Detailed, at a pace you can follow, with downloadable patterns and quick response to class questions. Now that it has changed hands, I will wait to see how long it takes to get my paid for classes back in my library.
I've wasted 3 months now trying to have Craftsy FIX the problem they created with my account when they "fixed" my account to enable the video option. Dozens of calls have not been returned, emails detailing the problem are only answered with the "Please take our survey and tell us how well we addressed your problem" emails and the chats-I've dealt with 5 years that knew more about website issues than Craftsy's support team. RUN from these con artists. DO NOT give thrm any money.
