To all Etsy WEAVEteam members:

I have really had it and I want to apologize to all the weavers on
this wonderful group.

I am resigning from this group because I feel that my actions will
only hurt all of you.

This is very upsetting to me because I enjoy so much meeting you all
and discussing so much with you.

I was gone for an hour, I came back and saw a wonderful post regarding
tatting in a weave structure.
I went to post a comment about what a good question and the thread was
closed by Michelle.

I have been working so hard trying to build a group of people who are
interested in weaving.
I am physically ill right now because of this and I am very sorry
that my emotions got the better of me.

I will delete my group membership. So that there will be no
association with me to harm any of your shops on Etsy.

I am very sorry for this.

--------------------------------------

First off I want to be sure that everyone knows that I have resigned from any and all connection to the Etsy WEAVEteam. I really said some nasty stuff and I do not want it to effect any WEAVEteam member's business with Etsy, and/or regarding the member's sales on Etsy.

But I want to distance myself from those with shops on Etsy, because I feel my remarks where a disservice to the Team and more importantly to the members of the Etsy WEAVEteam.

Now, that said, I am focusing my efforts and energy for my business of selling my handwoven jewelry on Artfire only.

I will still be guild master of the Weavers Guild on Artfire, and I sure will not give up on the http://weavemeet.com site, which is not a sales site or business site.
