Following this blog by email

Dear all, but especially e-mail subscribers,

I hope this note finds you and your families all well and coping cheerfully with the current trials.

You may have heard that the e-mail feed service associated with Blogger is being retired next month (July 2021).  That means that, in order to continue to offer this sort of reader option, I'm having to look into a new service,  I've got one set up and am trialling it at the moment - the secondary function of this brief post - I should get this by email and see if the format suits.  Assuming it does,  I'm planning to export the present email subscription list to the new service and, if you'd like to remain on the list for any future posts I make here, then you don't need to do anything as I hope to move the entire current, active list over to the new service on or shortly after 1 July 2021.

If, however, you don't want to continue getting email notifications from this blog, then please use whatever unsubscribe function comes with this email (probably at the bottom) before the end of the month (June) if at all possible.  Of course, you should still be able to unsub at any time from the new service, but now would be a good time to opt out if you want to.  I hope you'll stick around, but I know from my own experience that interests change and sometimes one person's work no longer hits to the spot for us and we unfollow.  ;)

If you don't want to be on the new service list, but would like to continue to follow along on a reader service, then please click through to the blog and scroll down to where I have buttons to follow on feedly and bloglovin in the sidebar.  Naturally, you're free to use any other service you like including good old fashioned clicking on the blog from time to time.  Remember that? LOL!

There's also the Instagram option, where you can find me as @sew_in_love_stitch_art

As I mentioned above, I hope to get the new service fully up and running in about a week, but will give that week's time for anyone who doesn't want me messing around with their email address to remove it. 

Best wishes, Elizabeth

I use Feedly, so I'll be fine anyway, unless you want me to subscribe and comment on the process for you..

Dear Elizabeth: I certainly want to enjoy more of your ideas. My concern is does this mean that your older tutorials and articles will disappear? If so ,I must print them out . Thank you for your site and wish you and yours well. Evelynne . an old but enthusiastic senior from Vancouver, Canada.

Please don't worry, Evelynne. The main blog is staying put. It's just the 'posts by email' service that's changing. :)
