Day 1 of Craftsy Spirit Week: It’s All About YOU!

That’s right, YOU! After all, you’re the reason Bluprint is here, and we just can’t thank you enough. As a part of our five-million member community (and growing!), you inspire us every day with your creativity, passion and undeniable talent. That’s why Day 1 of Bluprint Spirit Week is Member Appreciation Day — but rest assured, we truly appreciate you all 365 days a year!

Member Appreciation Day

Member Appreciation Day is all about celebrating your many creative successes!

From learning a new technique to finishing a beautiful project, we love seeing all the ways you use Bluprint to bring inspiration to life.

Here are some success stories we’ve heard from members like you:

“Your amazing platform which enables me to learn so much from such delightful tutors! I am on the other side of the world and via technology & Bluprint my world has changed!”  – Bluprint member joani

“Because of you I’ve become a confident crafter. You’ve helped me go from a timid beginning quilter to a daring intermediate. You’ve helped me go from a knitter who was scared of lace to wanting to knit as much complicated lace as I can.” – Bluprint member DeeDeeKnits

“I can’t tell you how much I love Bluprint. I have been knitting for many, many years, and always thought I was a pretty good knitter. But since I’ve taken your courses, I’ve learned more than I thought possible. It has brought real joy in my life, and I and my friends have many Bluprint conversations every week. I have branched into your excellent cooking classes, and now will try my hand at quilting.” – Bluprint member Marynora

Bluprint members have shared nearly 100,000 patterns and 200,000 projects over the past few years –– that’s a LOT of eye candy!
