Problems with my newsletter, With My Needle and Pen

Many of you are familiar with my internet newsletter, With My Needle and Pen, that I started 13 years ago. This was before I ever thought about designing. The newsletters are sampler-related, versus being specifically related to my design business, With My Needle.

About once a month I send out a newsletter notice through Yahoo. My subscription list of over 2000 is maintained at Yahoo.

Now comes THE problem!! I got ready to send out my newsletter today, and the yahoo group has disappeared!!! Please share this information with any you know who are on my subscription list as well as with any groups that you think might be interested.

I have written Yahoo in hopes of discovering what has happened. Please keep your fingers crossed that they can find the group before I pull my hair out! Hopefully the problem will be resolved SOON!!

Please feel free to leave me a comment here--I could use a boost to lift my spirits!

OMG... I'm so sorry to read about your Yahoo group troubles. I hope someone at Yahoo can resolve this for you Ellen.

Oh No!
I've been a recipient of your newsletter since the beginning -I think the bellpull was the first project? I have printed out and saved nearly all the ones related to the Newburyport Sampler. While I don't stitch much anymore, I still really enjoy opening each one of your monthly mailings. Hope Yahoo has an easy solution for you.

What is this world coming to? I know your Newsletter is looked forward to by many stitchers, especially sampler lovers. I hope Yahoo gets the problem settled quickly. If not a lot of us will experience withdrawal symptoms. JoAnn

Ellen, when I go and look at my groups it's there and I have no problem getting to it. I hope by now the issue has been resolved for you.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of the info at yahoo. I'm new to 'following blogs'. How can I get on the new list for the newsletter. Any inspriration helps keep me motivated to keep my needle moving. I have twins that aren't 2 yet and they keep me moving in other directions that my needle wants to go. ;-) I would love to get the newsletter. Thanks
