Amazing Threads: New Stuff, There are Positives to being Hacked & a New TOTAL on donations to CROSS
First, My apology to all who received an email from my personal account indicating I needed to talk with you and needed money. Now I always need money but I have no sister in Turkey. Really no biological sister at all but lots of women I think of as sisters. The hackers went back in my emails 25 years! It's BAD but under control!
There have been positives to being hacked: Calls and notes from people I haven't had the chance to catch up with for years. So now I know that there will be people at my bereavement party! YEAH! However, I can wait for that day for a while!
CROSS called last week to tell us that the TOTAL of cash and checks received during the SHOP HOP from Amazing Threads was $7231 & IT WAS MATCHED $ for $! That is $14,461.00 to our local food shelf!
THANK YOU to our community of Knitters and Crocheters!
