Thank you so much for making it easier to keep track of all the jewels that we find in the blog posts; it’s very much appreciated. However, not to be too picky, it would really be nice if there was a subcategory stack in which we can organize those favorites. Currently I have 7 pages of favorites that include projects, patterns to purchase, recipes and online classes. And in order to find what I’m looking for I still have to page through all of those 7 pages to locate something. So obviously this issue becomes more daunting in the future as I add more favorites, especially the jewels out of the blogs. It would be so helpful if I could search my favorites by type in the future.

What is missing on Craftsy since “The Change” is being able to click on and save (favorite , if you wish) the names of crafters whose work I like best. I had a whole library of people whose work I used to love to see. If I can once again save people by name and then to see all of their projects and something about them, then I will once again be a happy camper and crafter at Craftsy. I realize that i can save individual projects, but that’s not what I’m talking about.

I agree. I had the same type of library and I’d love to have it back. Is there any way to do this , Craftsy?

Is this only for Craftsy blogs or any blog that I follow? Great idea!

Great Idea. Is there any way to sub group them in favorites…quilt blogs, knitting blogs?

Thank you this will be great! However I do agree with another Craftsy reader who states, “It would really be nice if there was a subcategory stack in which we can organize those favorites”. It would be nice to be able to organize patterns in different catergories as well ie. Quilting, sewing, etc.

I agree with Sheryl. A way to put our favorites into categories would be most helpful.
Thanks for giving us this file.
If, in the future, you do add
the ability to sort by category ( or artist) please allow us to resort all of our favorites into the new categories.

This could be a great feature, but I have to agree with Sheryl. If it’s not organized, it doesn’t work for me.

Francine and Sheryl address two of the issues that I have run across. In the past when I found a class I liked, I put it in my wish list. Now the Favorites is a huge mess to fend through when you decide to buy a class. I quit favoriting anything else, so I can maintain a class wish list for myself. This change was a step back in customer service. I won’t be favoriting blog posts, it’s just another thing to add to the mess in the Favorites list.
I also miss the ability to follow people whose work I liked.
Maybe the new people can bring this back.
Happy crafting!
