Just a note to let everyone know that the class website - www.thistle-threads.com - is hosted on servers in Florida in the path of Irma. I expect that over the weekend and early next week that the site will likely go down for some period of time. Hopefully just short - which would mean things aren't bad for the people local to the site.
My 'system' is hosted by several different providers around the country- so the NING site is separate from the blog, the teaching site and the shop site. As far as I know - the teaching site is the only one in jeopardy and we are taking steps to back it all up right now in case of the worst. Our server farm provider has already alerted us to their plans for the hurricane.
So if you haven't downloaded your lessons this month and you have time tomorrow - take advantage of it and grab a few pages to enjoy. If things go down - it might take a bit for it to come up again or for me to get the site re-hosted and the domain rerouted to new servers.
