    Title: Crafting quest Create Bolt of Cloth stuck
    Reproduction Rate: 06/30/2019 14:16
    Blocker? Yes
    Details:
    The crafting quest involving Edwin in Soltown can get stuck making it impossible to complete the "Create Bolt of Cloth" step.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    - Craft Spool of Cotton Thread
    - Talk to Edwin
    - Double-click on the crafting station before closing the dialogue window
    - Craft the bolt of cotton cloth with an open dialogue window
    - Take the crafted material
    - The dialogue window is still open - close it
    - Talk to Edwin
    - Edwin responds "Please return when you have a bolt of cotton cloth"...
    - Note that the crafting table is still flashing blue

    No matter what you do it the quest will not be resolved, exiting the town, restarting the game, letting Edwin go to sleep.
    Edwin will remain stuck on "please return when you have a bolt of cotton cloth" no matter how many bolts you create. The crafting table also remains flashing blue throughout. The buy/sell window also appear when attempting to communicate with Edwin.

    Followup: Actually, not closing the dialogue window had nothing to do with it. I loaded an *old* savegame and it's the same issue if you go about it normally.

    I reported this from the quest task list yesterday, but gotta say I like the forums better -- at least here there's some proof that it was reported and you might know if it's being followed up on, rather than the in-game report just going into the void!

    I'm guessing it's related to the changes in the cloth bolts -- not sure exactly what they are, but since the pre-Release 67 bolts are now labeled as Vintage, I'm guessing Edwin is looking for the old bolts and not recognizing the new ones.

    Wouldn't have labeled it critical myself, but it DOES block you from continuing the quest, and although it's not a major storyline quest, it is the teach-newbies-how-to-craft quest.

    Thanks for the report and update! Issue #65177

    I have a couple of questions for you.
    1. Are you having this issue with the offline version of the game? You mentioned "savegame" so I think it probably is, but I need to be sure.
    2. If you've played the live version and done the same quest, have you had the same issue?

    I have the same issue. I am playing online.

    1. Closed dialogue window after handing over the Spool of Cotton Thread.
    2. Crafting table flashing, dbl clicked it to make one bolt of cotton cloth. took all & closed window.
    3. Talked to Edwin and he goes make the cloth, crafting table still flashing.
    4. made 4 more, same (3.)
    5. went to player owned table made cloth, same (3.)
    6. did a few more on player owned tables, even went back to starting area and made one there.

    still same, Edwin only buys & sells. table flashing.

    this all went down during a 4 day period (real life)
    talked to Edwin different times of day (in game)

    Almost all refining skills over 40 before i got to soltown.

    Possible reason could be the game does not ID the item as the correct one ?

    Don't know if this is the same in offline mode.

    Confirmed. I got a hold of some vintage bolts, made sure the new ones weren't in my inventory, and went back to Edwin. This time he recognized the bolts and gave me the next step of the quest.

    The default bolts of cloth were changed to a new item and the quest wasn't updated to pick up the change. I checked in an update that will allow for either "vintage" or new bolts of cloth to be usable for the quest. I think it'll be in with an upcoming update, but worst case scenario the fix will be in for R68.
