BIG REVEAL COMING SOON.....
My dear friend & Leader of the Primitive Rug Hooking Group, Betty & I have been working hard on bringing the EBAY PRHG Group into compliance with their guidelines & policies. With the help of Julie, Deirdre & The Queen we have been deleting THOUSANDS of links to outside (of ebay) sites & blogs. These wonderful ladies have spent hours upon hours deleting links/posts & threads that go back to the groups inception back in early 2006.
Just imagine over 150 women posting numerous times daily to each other, asking questions, building friendships, sharpening their Hooking Skills, from all over the United States & Canada.
That should give you an inkling of how many posts they have gone through to clean up the group so as not to have it closed down and to keep these women together.
This time, by the way has been completely VOLUNTEERED. This is the love for the art and the group as a whole that has kept us going to make sure the group does not close.
On top of all that we have been trying to make sure things run smoothly & make it clear that we all were in violation of the policies, and even though it was allowed and not corrected by the previous leader or moderators with all the changes happening on Ebay it needed to be fixed now before people were caught and possibly suspended or removed.
I can not tell you how proud I am of Betty, Julie, Deirdre & The Queen (Sherry) for their dedication & selflessness!
Thank you to Doris who started a list of members information last fall, and to the 40 or 50 members who updated & added their information to that list. We now have a way to contact them should something happen to the group board...
Thank you to all the members who didn't feel they were 'singled' out and willingly removed their links/banners & website information from their signature files!
My friends you will be rewarded for your cooperative spirit.....
For those of you who are not members you can search for ALL the talented pieces by these ladies on ETSY & EBAY, just type PRHG into the search fields of either website. You can even GOOGLE PRHG for some of the members listings/blogs.
Blessings 2 U Friends
