  • @MichaelaH Right at the moment Tom Bancroft (!!!!) started critiquing my work, my appointment started and I had to sign off 😵 😲

    I didn’t get the email either. New ideas rarely survive the first attempt. Hopefully next month the problems will be fewer. I would be interested to know how many people actually joined the live event.


  • SVS OG

    I haven’t been able to log in the the forums for a few days due to a family emergency. But, SVS told me “congrats” on Instagram today? What am I missing? I didn’t see an announcement and I haven’t gotten any emails...



  • @Pamela-Fraley

    You are one of the winners!!!
    Nicely done 🙂



  • Is there a way to watch the crits if we weren't able to log onto the live event?


  • SVS OG

    @SusanMiller unfortunately I wasn’t able to watch continually. Had to step away for other things during the hour. Hoping they will post video.


  • SVS OG

    @Heather-Boyd thank you! Hopefully they will post the video! ☺


  • SVS OG

    I couldn't attend either. I was at work. And when I got home I had missed the first 45 minutes. I wanted to watch the last bit live, but the link didn't work for me either unfortunately. I hope a recording will be made available. Even if I didn't join in the competition, I would really like to see who won and why.



  • I never got a link for the live event. I asked for it once, but when I still didn’t get one I thought I’d just see the recording afterwards... So now I really hope it will be made available as a video.

    The possibility of attending classes and discussing with classmates whenever you have the time, and wherever you live in the world, is one of the very best things about SVS 🙂



  • Congrats to the winners!
    I couldn't attend the live crits either but I'd love to watch it if there's a possibility to get a link to the recording. Any new infos on that?


  • SVS OG

    I would like to confirm that I didn't receive the email as well. I did check the spam/junk folder as well 🙂 Nonetheless, you are doing a great job @LisaF !



  • maybe the link for the recording can be made available for a short time after if it's not part of the svs classes. Tho I think it would be another fun addition the classes like the one Lee did for April . I think everyone who can show up for the live event still will. Timing worked out for me yesterday so I was able to watch and it was fun 🙂

    @lmrush I checked my email, I didn't receive notification or a link, I will check and make sure mine aren't going to spam


  • SVS Team SVS OG

    Hi everyone! Thanks for your patience! We haven’t done a big live event in a while, so we are still working out the glitches 😅

    So to answer your question YES, we’ll be posting the video from the live crit in the subscription next week, we’ll send out notification when it’s out 😁

    As for subscribers who didn’t receive the email with the live link, there were a variety of reasons why you may not have received the email:

    •if you have opted out of our email newsletter, you will not receive any emails (except for progress notifications, these are auto generated by a different system)

    •if you have a yahoo address, our email platform is experiencing issues sending email to yahoo, and many of these are bouncing

    •if you cancelled your monthly subscription and moved to an annual subscription, our system may not have recognized the switch

    •if you subscribed very recently, our system may not have caught up yet

    •if you cancelled recently, our system sees you as cancelled even though you may still access through the end of the month

    •various individual scenarios like expired credit cards and such

    Our apologies if you did not get the email! Anyone who contacted me via email before the event, I was able to resend a link to.

    Just fyi, Will, Lee and Jake want to do more of these kinds of events for our subscribers, so we are gonna try doing live crits on the first Thursday of the month for a while to see if there’s interest. What do you guys think?


  • SVS OG

    Thank you @LisaF for your response! Much appreciated!


  • Pro SVS OG

    Thank you Lisa, You are the best! That is awesome and tell W,L & J crit Thursday would be amazing! Thanks again



  • Nice! Thank you so much for the update @LisaF 🙂

    Crits are awesome to watch, I would definitely like more of that kind of content! It would be nice if the events could be recorded and posted as videos so you don’t have to watch them live though. Because of jobs and life and timezones, it’s just not possible for everyone to watch live sessions. It doesn’t have to be available for ever, could be for a week or until the next session for example 🙂
