What’s up with Sewing World?

Elona_Masson | Posted in The Archives on

Has anyone else had trouble getting into www.sewingworld.com? Since mid-afternoon, all I have gotten is “Connection Refused,” no matter what approach I try. Gee, I hope they’re not down again!

        *I just tried it, and was able to get back in. It was a tad slow and clunky, though, as if there were still some problems.

          *Whoops, back down again!

            *barb c, are you using the url I've got?--http://sewingworld.com/bbcgi/Ultimate.cgi. Mine used to work, though.

            *Ahhhh, I can get back in again! Some ladies at SW say they're still having trouble, but one has a son who works in the internet business, and he says that what's going on is interference from sunspots and flares disrupting satellite transmissions.

            *Good news! Paula S. has started up a "lifeboat" site for those who are shut out of Sewing World when it is down: http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/sewingworldlifeboat
