Craftsy Chaos from Atlantis BOGO vs VIP

This is an email that was sent to all subscribers on Jan 12th, 2019.

Hey Everyone...


It's my LAST DAY of enjoying my first cruise. It's been a great time! I've met amazing people here and the education has been amazing. You'll see lots of cool features rolled out on from what we learned here!


I'm writing to you from an observation deck aboard the beautiful new ship - Norwegian Bliss. Here's my last "office view" for this trip... Atlantis in Nassau...

So let's get you all caught up with the last 24 hours...


In our previous episode... lol... you may have learned that Craftsy closed their Marketplace to thousands of us (sellers) and then had the wild idea that we designers should leave our patterns behind (but be locked out from them) so they could continue to distribute - without any controls or security in place - our work as they see fit. Well... $&@#. no. to that. So I got our best programmers on the job and we CREATED A SOLUTION!


On Dec 28th, we launched a way to let people connect the dots to their patterns from Craftsy on our site. All you have to do is log in or register on and the site will help you make your way to accessing your patterns from us that you bought on Craftsy with us in the future. You'll be in the loop for future freebies and all modifications that will happen - we could not offer this going forward with Craftsy. So how it works:


If you already own any products on our site, our system will now give you access to your Craftsy patterns with us, too. If you are new to us, a purchase is mandatory in order for the site to give you permission to access our PDF and workshop areas - it has always been set up that way. So to help the Craftsy folks meet that requirement, we made a little 88c item that will give you permanent access to your patterns.


While we are still migrating THOUSANDS more that are still making their way to us, we ask that you be a little patient with our emails. We are working on a better email system so we can "onboard" the new members without sending emails to everyone - possibly like yourself. We're not quite there, yet, with this process (and it doesn’t help that I’m traveling right now)... so PLEASE, if you are getting more emails than usual from us, just know that we're working to make this better SOON - hopefully within the next week or so. Please bear with us. :)


So to our newbies!!! WELCOME!


BONZA on the water


My BONZA! and Mojo are packed with the materials I need with me for this business cruise I'm on. I snapped this pic while in St Thomas yesterday.


When I get back, I can't WAIT to get these Mastery Workshops going! If you don't know much about what we do, please join our facebook groups... and


For today, let me just throw our current specials your way. Because there are so many people all coming in right now, we tweaked expiration dates a little so our newest members don't miss out.


It's GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR!!!! BONZA! and MOJO Mastery Workshops ... check 'em out!


We do our best to make sure you enjoy your time with us!


With much love,


Sally (floating her way to Miami in the morning - and then back to Colorado!) and her Rock Star Team







Let me tell you about these, first, as they are the most time critical for you to consider.


The image above is of the actual new colors we are receiving this month! Yummy, aren't they?


These are colors and sizes that are not available anywhere else!!


Our sister store, is run by my son and his wife. MORE ZIPPERS CAME YESTERDAY!


Almost all of the new zipper colors (in all 4 sizes we carry!!!) Have rolled in! These are beautiful, custom colors that were chosen carefully to coordinate beautifully with Free Spirit’s Tula Pink “Zuma” fabric line that is crazy popular right now. Joel and Stacy are busy getting everything inventoried and into the shop... then we're gonna set it loose! Expect that to happen about Jan 20th or so... (that's my best guess.. you just have to stay tuned to the news in the shop FB group:



THE RELEASE of the new zipper stock - HOW IT WORKS:



• We will first announce in all of our groups that the items are live on the shop site when all of the THOUSANDS of them have been loaded into the store. Again, that's coming up soon!


Next, plan on the VIPs flying into action! lol.


• Remember, immediately, VIPs get a head start of at least 24 hours because they already have 60% off buying power on zippers - all of the time! Many of our VIPs say that the zippers are one of the best perks of being in our VIP membership program.


VIP Membership Information


If you’re thinking this might be a good thing for you, and you want to learn more, please know the COUPON CODE of VIP50 takes $50 off the yearly subscription of the VIP program! This one expires on Jan 15th. It’s wise to get it before you order zippers!


Annual VIP Membership


• For everyone else - you will get a 30% off coupon code for remaining zippers on the 2nd or 3rd day after release! Just know that those VIPs are crazy about zippers! So when zippers are released, there are two ways to buy them...


VIPs - 60% off


Everyone Else for the first 2-3 days - full price

Then, on the 2nd or 3rd day - everyone else gets a 30% coupon code to be able to buy anything else that is still left in stock.




When we launch these in a week or so, we will make it easier (just hit one button instead of 160 of them! lol) and add these new colors to your stash by ordering “bundles”.


THERE WILL BE A LIMITED NUMBER OF BUNDLES. - and wow, do they go fast!!! The VIPs cleaned out the bundles from the last shipment within about 4 hours of release.


Remember, these are new amazing colors - THAT NOBODY ELSE OFFERS!


Now that I’ve given Joel his dose of shameless promotion… lol…. The new colors coordinate beautifully with Tula Pink’s Zuma …I really enjoyed the happy colors! It was a joy to sew the new BONZA! Bionic Gear Bag from Zuma.






These will begin shortly after JAN 22 - Which is when we were given our “build” date by the cable modem company for our studio!


VIPs: Remember, your subscription covers all workshops and recordings!


Keep these in mind as you prepare your shopping lists at
