    the link worked for me fine

  2. Linda Walmer

    2/15 and these get the pattern links go to places like etsy that are charging for the pattern. Please take this down until you have links that work for us paid members.

  3. Nancy Comins

    STILL the "get the pattern" doesn't work. Do you want members to keep their subscription?

  4. Julia Leonard

    Why are you advertising scrap quilts to bust your stash when the links to "get the pattern" still don't work as of Jan. 4?

  5. Julia Leonard

    As of Jan. 4, 2021, why do you still advertise with links to "get the pattern" when the IT team still hasn't fixed the problem?

  6. Anne

    The links still don’t take me to “the pattern” - it’s now almost a month later! How disappointing, Craftsy!

  7. Michelle Coburn

    Still no pattern links as of December 7. Disappointing Craftsy!!

  9. Graziela Fortes

    Where can I find those projects?

  10. Darlene Wright

    I get so frustrated reading about ideas on projects I would like to do, only to find that the links are not available to me. UGH!!
