    I’ve got to agree with Luba- I’m exploring my craftsy membership and I’m finding a lot of cool articles like this and a majority of the links are dead links that take me back to the home page rather than to a tutorial. It’s nice having these compiled articles, but not being able to access the tutorials is kinda…defeating?

    I’m very upset bc i paid for membership and not able to access the classes or tutorials. In tutorials for rings it doesn’t have a link or tutorials itself. What’s the point of getting membership ? Very disappointed.
