Re: The Sewing & Stitchery Expo is Just One Month Away

I'm afraid I won't be going to the Expo, but an evening suit I sewed for the Midnight Magic sewing contest will be walking down the runway without me. If you're going to the Expo, be sure to attend the Midnight Magic fashion show on Sunday. And remember to vote for your favorite garment -- the garments will be on display throughout the weekend so you can cast your vote even if you don't attend the fashion show. The outfit I made includes a silver lurex jacket and was made using a Connie Crawford pattern.

Re: Last day to enter the Threads Ultimate Sewing Challenge

Vicky, the computer system refuses to save any text I've entered in the "Full Text" box or in the "Photo Caption" box -- I have, however saved photos and other sections as a draft. Whenever I hit the "Publish and Preview" key, I get two error messages: "Please enter Summary information." and "Please enter a Short Description."

I haven't used the Threads Magazine part of the website before, but last night I successfully posted a quick entry to the gallery of Taunton's Craft Stylish website, which is set up in a similar way.

I don't know whether there's a glitch on the Threads Magazine website or whether I'm doing something wrong, but I wouldappreciate any help you or anyone else can provide. Thanks.
