One Week on....

What a fantastic week!!!!!!

In this one week more than 187 members have registered
52 of those chose to take out a yearly subscription
with 5 members opting for the monthly.

You have raised over £500 so far for the maintenance and future of The Sewing Place

The most members online came yesterday evening at 7.30 pm with 35 ...
but hold on to your hats, we are up to 27 as I write so that stat could soon be history!

You have been a busy, busy bunch with 154  members posting more than 2270 times in 257 threads

We have also had to sadly gladly decline the registration attempts of 5 Viagra salesman from Nigeria and 8 European pornographers...

Sorry Guys...Wrong Forum!

I must be missing something here. Annual subscription is £10, monthly is £1 so equivalent to £12 annually.
Do you prefer annual as it needs less admin? Is that why you said it was an upgrade?
Either way, great figures for the first week! What an excellent response. Apart from the pornographers.....

Wow that's fantastic. What a great start. I think we all love the format, the stats (oh the luvverly stats), the highly responsive admins and finding everyone again. An inspiration. Thank you yet again to Im and MrIm (Im indoors??? :D), Fran and everyone for making this all happen.

It's more that collecting the full £10 in one go guarantees that £10 as a whole. You can pull out of the monthly subscription at any time, so for example in your first month having paid only £1. Therefore having the "guarantee" of the larger amount is good for the coffers   ;)

But really either way is appreciated!

And the Paypal fees mean that £10 in one go is actually marginally better than 12 x £1. However as Fran says all subscriptions and donations are appreciated and will go towards the running and improvement of the forum.

Wow, what a start. Well done to the admins for setting it up and burning the midnight oil and well done to us for getting back together. Can't believe it's only a week. Also great to have updates on what is happening.

I'm so pleased that this forum was set up. The feeling of real dismay i felt on discovering that TSF had disappeared was soon turned to joy! Good old google! Many thanks to all involved. This looks to be a lovely well thought out format. i shall tell my RL sewing friends about it.  <3 <3 <3
Feeling the fear and doing it anyway .... er sometimes!

Golly - almost a stampede !

Has this covered the costs of set up? What will be the running costs?
I'd like to think I was inspired, but maybe sewing is just hard wired

Thanks Fran and Mr. Imi, those explanations make sense.  Good to know that there are funds coming in to keep this going.

Yes Retch, but its also being increasingly targeted by the more undesirable factions of society ...
it seems for every one TSfer or the like that we welcome, I am now researching and rejecting 3 peeps with dubious motives.

We need to advertise, in the right areas, our presence to any lingering Tsfers ...
Does anyone know of any we have not yet seen over here?

There are several on PR but I think they have stated that they are happy to wait for the return of TSF.
