Thank you for doing this!  I plan to attend but cannot guarantee as my time isn't always mine.  I've set up reminders on my computer.

Thank you so much, Jim. I’m in. This is very generous of you and Diane to do this—as usual.

A recurring feature of Reddit, which likely only a few of you know, is the AMA - Ask Me Anything. Reddit AMAs are done with celebrities answering the questions of the live attendees. I don't have access to any celebrities, but I thought we might kick off 2019 with a chat amongst members. If a dozen or more list members voice interest via replies I will put up a chat on January 1, at 3pm CST. Since our group is global I'm thinking that's a time that will be more or less civilized (with the possible exception of Aussies nursing hangovers):
     4pm EST, 2pm MST, 1pm PST, 9pm in London, and 8am on January 2 in Sydney.
There will be no agenda, just questions, answers, and general conversation. Hopefully it will be a fun departure from the norm. If enough people are interested I will post a confirmation. Thanks and Happy New Year!

Same here. I also have Brother machines and find the difference, especially via Acu this and that confusing.

I have created the chat for use tomorrow. It's closed now, which means you cannot join it. I will open it at 3pm CST, January 1,  (US, that's 4pm EST, 2pm MST, and 1pm PST). In London that will be 9pm and Sydney 8am on January 2. Most of our members are in or close to one of those time zones. If you're not you'll have to work out when it is for you.

Joining is very simple. Just click this link: Happy New Year!

If you clicked this link prior to the chat time (Yes, I know some of you could not resist!) you will find no way to join it. When I open the chat it will be entered the same way, but there will be a "Join" button to add yourself to it. Once in, you will see what everyone "says" by a line of text on your screen, preceded by their group member ID. You can type in the box provided. Every time you press ENTER whatever you typed will join the stream in the chat. Whether you want to "speak" or not, I think it would be nice for everyone to enter your first name and city/state (or city/country if not US). That will give us a picture of just how far-flung the group is.

As near as I can tell, the chat function is wide open and uncensored. I don't imagine that will be a problem with this crowd, given that many of you have, like me, experienced having your mouth washed out with soap! You may have even been a wash-er as well as a wash-ee.

I will send out a couple of reminders tomorrow, as special notices. See you there!


Re: Starting off the new year

No, chat will be done online, in a web browser, NOT by email. I've just sent out a short post explaining how to get in. Some of you may not have ever entered the groups.io website due to being transferred here from Yahoo. If you have not yet been to the site, you should do so now so you are familiar with the process. Here's a link to get you started: https://groups.io/g/onlinesewing-janome

The first time you go to the site you will need to log in using the email address where you receive posts or digest. If you have not yet established a password you will be able to do so on your first login. If you have only logged in once and cannot remember your password, now would be the time to go through the lost-password process so you will be primed and ready for tomorrow.
