    It appears that quite a few of us received requests for selvages.
    I was trying to relocate that in my PMs, but have been unable to find it.

    I was wondering if this person may have been conducting some kind of experiment with us as the guinea pigs?

    That person sent identical PM by doing copy/paste to 227 people. So I locked her account.

    I also got a request for selveges and like you, it has disappeared from my PM box. When she was blocked, it must have deleted all messages to/from her.

    How do you figure that out?

    I checked the database, and then checked the web server logs.
    She would open a thread, and then keep going to a user profile after profile sending PMs. Then she would move on to another thread and PM everyone there. And so on.

    Wonder if anyone responded.

    I have two baggies full of boring selvages that I was thinking about sending to her, but these don't have the cute little circles on them.

    Admin, I think this bears notation from you on the main so all memebers will be advised without having to 'chance upon' one of the posts discussing it.
    Maybe you would lock it at the top for awhile. It might deter abuse which deprives our members in need.
    Regards, Dorothy

    I also got that & ignored it since I didn't know the person & it sounded weird. I keep mine & zigzag them together to make pin cushions for friends. The woven pieces off layer cakes & jelly rolls, etc. are great (prob 12 inches or more) & they look very cute when zz'd together.

    Craftbear, I'm out right now, but next time I make some I'll post them. Thanks for asking me to share them. Also, I see your links to different sites for all kinds of tips. How do you connect those links to this site? I'd like to do that too. Thanks.

    I was wondering. I saved some of my salvages and then was wondering why she wanted them. Glad that Adm is keeping a close eye on things. Geez, just makes you wonder about some folks.
