Feb 22, 2005 Kaye Wood's Quilting Newsletter.Kaye Wood Quilting and Sewing Online Newsletter
Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a great start to your week! Ours began with a bang, to the tune of about 10 to 12 inches of snow! Just when you think that winter is over---yeah right! But I'm trying not to complain. From the looks of the US weather map, there are a lot of people getting hit with stuff I'm sure they'd rather not have. It's just more incentive to stay in, check out Kaye's Quilting Friends and be inspired to start or finish some of your projects.
Our pictures in this weeks letter feature one of my favorite things, babies! I know, I know, what do they have to do with quilting? Well, not much but when I see their cute little faces, it just makes me smile. The more I smile, the better my day is, so take a look, give a little grin and enjoy!

What Do You Think?
Lately, we've found an increase in the number of newsletters that are bounced back to us. These are refused by mail servers that think it is spam. Some of the reasons spam filters may pick up vary. It may be that headings are capitalized, or graphics are included in the letter or just certain words getting picked up. As more internet providers and readers install these spam filters, it's harder and harder for our newsletter to get through.
So, we'd like your opinion. We can keep it as is and send it to your e-mail box or start publishing the newsletter online. We would have a link on our site and all you would do is click on it and it would take you to the newsletter page. This is not something that is going to happen today and it may not happen at all. We only want what's best for our readers, so let us know what you think. Click the link below to respond.
