I came across this info while searching (yes again) the internet.
It is a yahoo group for all interested in Creative Machine. Apparently administered by Threads Magazine many moons ago.
I have enough to do at present to sign up to more groups, just thought some of you may not know of it.
Search Yahoo Groups for Creative Machine:
The description states: The Creative Machine Newsletter has been a fixture of the sewing world for many years. It was founded by Robbie Fanning, and was mailed to sewing enthusiasts until her retirement in 2002. The printed newsletter was supplemented by an online email group.
This Yahoo group continues that tradition in Robbie’s honor, offering an online discussion forum for sewing enthusiasts, free of commercial sponsorship or advertising. Members share their creative energy and encourage other members to explore and expand their creative boundaries.
Once a month, the list welcomes a different Guest Host to lead the conversation. These hosts include luminaries from the sewing and textile world, including pattern designers, specialty retailers, fabric artists, authors and more.
You are welcome to join in the conversation and let your creative side shine!
