Below is a personal message from Josh Scott, Founder and COO at Craftsy, to the members of our passionate community. This week, Craftsy welcomed its 2.000.000th member! On behalf of all of us here on the Craftsy team, we'd like to thank each and every one of our members!
"I'm Josh Scott, one of the Founders of Craftsy, and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the humbling opportunity to work on your behalf.
I'm extremely excited to say, that this week we welcomed the 2,000,000th member into the Craftsy community. It would be seemingly easy, as our community grows, to get lost in the crowd represented by that number — but that is what is so special to me about Craftsy.
In a world which, at times, appears to increasingly gravitate toward the generically mass-produced, I am thankful to have been able to get to know so many talented people who create the one-of-a-kind and special.

I'm often prompted to contemplate the beauty of this, when I receive messages from Craftsy members such as the one below, which recently greeted me in my email inbox:
'I am an old Quilter from way back and Craftsy gives me a lot of comfort, as it lets me stay connected to a wonderful craft. I am totally bedridden and cannot physically sew any more, but I can in my head.'
I hope that you, too, take a moment from time-to-time to pause, step back from the hectic elements of life, and appreciate the positive impact your talent and passion has on your family, friends, and local community."
