      *AACCK! I had been reading earlier today in the Loes Hinse II folder about a designer fabric web site that was selling all stock. I had planned to come back tonight to get the link and I fear I may be out of luck! If anyone knows what I am talking about please post the link or send it to me at [email protected] hope Sewing World isn't down yet....

            *Does anyone know how long Sewing World will be down, and why it is down? I couldn't get on, and I suddenly remembered someone saying a while ago it was going to go down for a bit...Guess I'll just use the time to sew now :o)....--Audrey

            *Thank you for the link suggestion! It was the second one. Still, I am nervous about SW! Tried the URL this morning and got some LA photography site! Let's hope we don't lose it for good. Why don't the site owners ever communicate with the site users?Linda McPhail

            *RE: Site owners communicating with users. I've been told that the owners are kind enough to let us use their server free of charge and that in the past, the server has failed while they were out of town - vacation, I believe. I will cheerfully tolerate a week or two of no Sewing World in exchange for the many weeks of expert help and camaraderie. Well, okay - maybe "cheerfully" is a bit of a stretch....but I will try to remain patient. I will try to remain patient. I will try to remain patient. I will try..... -Karla

            *As regards communication, Scott and Krista have had a message on the homepage of SW that a new and improved version of SW is on its way so may be there is work in progress as we speak. Meanwhile life isn't quite the same -- I am keeping check on my withdrawal symptoms by trying to get on with some actual sewing. Jan.

            *just a word on emmaonesock -- I ordered the fabric on Monday and got it on Wednesday. Wow!! and the olive ribbon fabric is as cool as everyone says.

            *It's 11:20 pm on Thursday. Sewing World comes up but there are no current topics. Last postings were on July 29th.Ginna

          7. BH | | #11

            *It seems like it's up, but no msgs. again today. ?? In the interim, I signed up for internet/cable and have to re-register on all my lists because the cable company messed up my email addy. :-( But I'm still . . . Bettina. Have a great day!

            *Initial screen is up but no one has been able to post yet. Sorry about any confusion.Ginna

          9. Noreen_Huber | | #13

            *I sent Krista an E Mail about inability to post. Has anyone heard anything? Noreen

            *Attention Sewing World Members:Is there any spot other than this one where SW members are "gathering" ('scuse the pun!).....?I feel Threads is pretty wonderful to let us keep contact during this annual hiatus. Thanks.

            *a while back, someone suggested http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/europeansmcircle But I think they want far too much personal info, so I haven't registered there.

            *I'm getting concerned. I don't remember Sewing World ever being down this looong. Anybody hear anything from Krista?Ginna

          14. judi_dean | | #18

            *message at the site today says it's down for maintenance & back up Thursday.

          15. lucyk | | #19

            *i'm just wondering, if since it's been over a week since the last post on this subject, if everyone else is able to connect to sewingworld? i still get the message about the administrator supposing to have fixed everything yesterday? of course the day i decide i want a new machine and everyone is telling me to go to sewingworld, and i can't get through. i hope it's not always like this!

          16. judi_dean | | #20

            *no, I still get the same message too. My advice is hang in there, I'm sure it will be up soon and it's such a great place for researching everything about sewing.

          17. Ginna | | #21

            *lucyk - Sewing World has been very reliable for the almost 3 years that I have been loggin on. The two summers prior to this the site went down each year for about a week around July 4th when Krista & Scott went on vacation and were not there to monitor it and keep it up. This past month has been the only real problem and I can't being to tell you how many people have been having withdrawal systems? We can't wait for it to be back up.Ginna

          18. Jerris_Lane | | #22

            *Sewing World is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          19. Amo_ | | #23

            *THREADS: A big thanks from all of us, above, I'm sure. It's been nice to have a place air our worries about Sewing World Commons.And, of course, we will always come to Gathering to discuss the unique problems there. Again, thanks.
