We now have new details and prices for the LOKLiK Crafter electronic cutting machine.
The Kickstarter campaign is currently underway, plus there’s another product coming for Cricut – the Siser Juliet!
I’ll be going LIVE tonight at 7PM ET to break down the LOKLiK crafter and other electronic cutting machine options available to consumers.
11/30 Update: PR rep with LOKLiK/HTVRONT emailed me an explanation for what happened with the initial Kickstarter campaign:
“As we understand from the Kickstarter Trust & Safety Team, an unknown third party has made multiple fraudulent purchases under the same IP with different accounts, triggering Kickstarter’s action to immediately cancel the project. We have no knowledge of the third party, and we have no way to reverse Kickstarter’s decision to take precautionary measures and protect their platform.”
I was asked to change the title of this video / post and remove the word “suspended” to which I declined.
LOKLiK also made this request: “I would like to kindly ask you to make a clarifying video explaining why our campaign was suspended on Kickstarter and we will try to provide you with any answers or other supports.”
However, I would like to point out that I did reach out over a month ago to ask what happened with the Kickstarter and got crickets for over one month. The only reason they provided this information now, is because one of their clients saw this video and questioned the validity of the crowdfunding project.
UPDATE: Tuesday night, the LOKLik Crafter Kickstarter was suspended and all pledges have been canceled. I had pledged $99 earlier in the day and received this email:
“To protect our community, we may suspend projects when they demonstrate one or more of the following:
• Pledging activity from several suspicious or unauthorized backer sources Pledges on Kickstarter must be made in good faith. We work to protect both backers and creators by investigating any pledges that appear to violate this principle, and are dedicated to acting quickly in response.”
I’ll be sharing further developments here at the Sewing Report…
