So here's my story:
I am a member on Craftsy.com, the best website (at least IMHO) for taking online quilting/sewing/cooking/baking classes. They have awesome teachers, and once you buy a class you have access to it 24/7 and they never expire. If you have not heard of them, or have not taken any classes from them, I highly recommend them to anybody.
I signed up for quite a few classes and going through them slowly (you know a girl's gotta sew!). I get emails from them from time to time stating when they have sales, or they give out special offers. I got one of those a few days ago, letting me know that 2 of their classes were on sale, if I'm correct they were 50% off, both for $14.99. As I saw the class titles I knew I had signed up to both of them already, so just for fun I wrote back:
"That's a bummer, because I have both of them in the queue already... :)))"
A few hours later I got and email from Patty who thanked me for reaching out to them and being an active member of the community. Talking about making me feel good! :) She explained to me that their goal is to reach out to members with offers that they think the member would be the most interested in. And since I have a ton of classes in my queue already, it's hard for them to offer classes that I don't own already. Ehem :)
She basically extended the offer and asked me which classes I would be interested in. I wrote back to her and named the 3 classes I most wanted to get (didn't want to be pushy and let her know that all of the ones I don't have already, LOL!). And also had a question which I think most of the quilting community would like to see, which is having the option to add friends on Craftsy to be able to see who is taking what classes and what projects they're working on.
Patty put the 3 classes in my cart for the sale price of $14.99 each. I was stunned! Also She'd let me know that She will let the rest of the team know about the request of being able to make friends and they will consider it in the future.
I just wanted to say, thank you so much Craftsy team, you're doing a terrific job!
