Early this year I started advising my subscribers that I'd be moving the newsletter to a new email provider and that the "from" would change from one of my personal email addresses (comcast) to one associated with the site, lindeegembroidery.com and that it was important to "whitelist" this new email address so as not to miss any new emails.
The result was I received a flurry of replies with "whitelist" or "keep me subscribed." Not terribly beneficial other than to make me feel warm and fuzzy that people still wanted to hear from me!
If you've visited the site between Valentine's Day 2014 and mid-April, you saw the dreaded "site is offline" message.
I'm thrilled to say it's back up now having been totally rebuilt from the ground up. It has been a major investment in time and resources by more than just me.
The site is live but limping and still has a long way to go to be as functional as the previous pre-crash site. At least it's accessible!

I've been bombarded with questions concerning Echidna P.I.E. since writing How to Get Your Own Slice of P.I.E. so to clear those up, I've compiled them into this post. As new questions come up, I'll add them here with their answers.
Uh, in a word, no.
Unless of course you purchased them from my online shop and then I can happily tell you to log into your account and redownload them. Many sites allow you do this, some do not. And of course, you'll need to remember where all you got them. You do remember that, right?

Have questions about the gorgeous FSL Heirloom Angel? Apparently a lot fo you do so here are the answers!
I've been asked this question rather frequently lately. This question is generally followed by, "it's just a digital file. It can't take that long to digitize and besides, digital files don't cost anything." Huh?
Please check this list before contacting me—it might answer your question much more quickly!
Wow! I sure hope I never have to switch email systems again! Here I thought I was being a good guy and offering you a free collection for moving over with me but it has turned into a nightmare!
I have a question about digitizing. Should I do it myself? What's the best software at a low budget price? Is it intuitive and easy? Is there a software that I can used to simply import my logo (.tiff) push a button and have it digitized? Yes, I'm a guy and I need it to be automatic and basically work all by itself.
Since I'm frequently asked questions like yours, I decided answering your email would make a great post. A lot of my topics come from questions I see on forums or the ones people are asking me.
I'm ecstatic about the feedback I've gotten on my ebook, Anatomy of a Design: How to Think Like a Digitizer & Become a Better Embroiderer. I've gotten a few questions concerning the book so maybe this page will help you.
If your question isn't answered here, let me know and I'll update this FAQ.
