A short post to let you know that I added four pictures of the siggies from Betsy Nanninga to the gallery of the website.
Until this morning the forms on the website could not be submitted. They all produced an error stating that their content was spam. Nothing could be further from the truth. The cause was an incompatibilty between two plugin apps.
It took me the best part of this morning to figure out what happened and to fix the problem. Half an hour ago I tested the forms myself. All of them now seem to function normally again.
My apologies for any inconvenience this situation may have caused.
Upgrading to a new version of WordPerfect — the engine behind this website — invalidated the translation tool I used. Because we exchange siggies internationally I decided to present the site in English only. That also makes it easier to manage.
Yes! For the beginning of the new year there is also a brand new version of our siggy list. Some new members are waiting eagerly to start exchanging. Make them happy and immediately send them an email to start a siggy exchange. Who are they? The last column of the siggy list contains an appropriate remark in that regard.
Do you have friends that love patchwork? Encourage them to subscribe to the Siggy List. The list always needs enthusiastic new members.
I use MailChimp to send over 200 emails at once. That program doesn’t accept classical appendices. You can only download the new list using the link you received in an email message.
The next version of the siggy list is scheduled for the end of march 2018.
My best wishes for a Happy New Year
Meanwhile you received two emails about the new version of our siggy list. They both are for the same list, but the first message mentioned the wrong date. My appologies for that mistake.
I use MailChimp to send about 200 mails at once. It doesn’t work with classical attachments. You can download the list from the link in one of the emails you received.
The next version of the list is scheduled for the end of december 2017.
Yesterday, after a lot of pasting, cutting, sorting, emailing, adding and updating the new version of the siggy list was finally ready for distribution. Meanwhile, if all went well, you received an email about it.
The MailChimp system that I use to send emails, doesn’t allow for classical attachments. I uploaded the new list to MailChimp. You can download the list from the link in the email you received.
Good morning Wouter,
It is nice that you will manage the siggy list. I am a member since 2010. Yes, I already exchanged a siggy with you. Yours is incorporated in a pillow for which I chose 16 siggies with mainly blue tints. I have another one with colored blocks. Both are lying on my couch. Furthermore a very beautiful quilt with 365 siggies serves as a blanket on our bed. I asked Marga to publish a picture of it but that never happened. Thought it could be an interesting example for others.
Currently I am not actively swapping siggies. I reached my goal! But if someone asks for an exchange I still do that because it is fun.
Now I am busy making cushions in the shape of a heart for women with breast cancer. The corners of those cushions are bigger and fit very well into an armpit to reduce the pressure on the wound. If you are interested you can see it in a blog.
I hope you will keep the list up to date for a long time. I think it is a lot of work. Isn’t it? I wish you success and I’ll see the new list appear when it is published.
