Threaded View
I hope that this isn't out of line.

My name is Neil Atkin and I am Sharon's oldest son. Sharon and I are
producing a new website with all digital media. Every thing from
Gammill Longarm patterns and original patterns with video tutorials
all the way to Internet based lessons on her techniques.

Please visit our site and if you are interested sign up for the news
letter and you will receive two FREE patterns from Sharon.

www.SharonSchamberNetwork.com

Again if this is out of line I am sorry but what better way to spread
the word then to tell the ones that have taken her class in the past.

Thank you,
Neil Atkin

Our usual philosophy here, Neil, is that we don't like ads for things
that are for *sale*. Since you're advertising freebies, I can't see why
any of us would be upset. :)

BTW, I'm one who's taken some of your mom's classes in the past, and
I've signed up for the free stuff, too. Her lessons are awfully detailed
and complete -- a joy to use. :) Thanks!

Check your email addy that you used for it..
That's where you confirm it (like they didn't by sending you the email.
Really didn't make sense : | )
 Sure was a diff way of making basket handles. looked much easier that the
way I've been doing it.even with the basting--gets it UP OFF the floor-no
more sore knees or like Miz Sairey would say "It was a 2/3/4 beer job"

Thank you for understand about this.

One of the main things that Sharon wants to do is to have alot of free
info and patterns on the site. Its her opinion that for new quilters
there is a lack of quality information and there is no better way to
start them off then to give it to them free.

Enjoy the site and thank you so much for signing up.

Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
This is a great site. I signed up. There are so many nice lessons on
the site. The binding class is priceless. It sure is going to help me.
If you haven't yet, check this site down.

Yes, the binding PDF instructions are great. I thought binding was
*one* thing
I had pretty well figured out, but I learned a lot from this pdf.
Can't wait to
try it.

Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
hi Neil,
i signed up last week and when i got the link for the 2 free patterns i
found the ginormous size of them would take me 16 to 17 hrs each to download
on dial up. even for those with broadband i'm sure they'd take a fair while.
our broadband here is not as fast as in usa either, of that i'm sure.
how ever did those 'free' ones get soooooooooooooooooo big? maybe they could
be split into smaller sections?
sharon or you did send me an outline drawing of the two patterns but i'm
missing out on all the info that comes with the designs. :((
oh well, i shall have to rely on my own devices and technique on these. they
sure are pretty ones. :))
good luck with the new venture,
jeanne

It was actually my partner-n-crime that sent you the email. His name
is Ricky and he is taking care of all the web design and Internet
marketing. I have to say that thanks to him we have been able to reach
and exceed all out pre-launch goals. But that is another subject.

What you are missing out on is the full PDF tutorial that Sharon
produces for her patterns. Yes they are great to have, as im sure
anyone that has purchased patterns or downloaded the ones we have will
attest to. Ricky and I will be authoring a video tutorial on how to
use a download manager for customers like yourself. What it will be
able to do is manage all your downloads so that if there is an
interruption in your connection you will be able to resume right back
where you started. I would have to recommend this especially for
people with dial-up connections. For now you can download the program
at http://www.flashget.com/en/download.htm . It is a good program but
can be a bit overwhelming at first. I will give you some basic
instructions right now.

Note: This is a free program that I have used for the past few years.
It is perfectly safe and doesn't contain any malicious programs to be
afraid of.

After FlashGet is installed and you have a link to a video you want to
download. You will need to right click on your mouse and bring up the
menu select the flashget option. That will activate the program and
bring it up. After that you can choose where to save your file.

If you are using FireFox (I highly recommend you do use this browser
any how http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ , again totally free and
safe) you can add a program plugin called "FlashGot" virtually
identical to FlashGet but for Firefox.https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US /
firefox/addon/220 again right click choose option "FlashGot Link" and
choose where you want to save the file.

I will have a tutorial video on our YouTube page by the end of next
week to assist you with this.

We do realize that there will be a fair percentage of customers with
dial up access and I will be starting a service shortly after launch
that will address that. But for now we will just have to work
together.

Feel free to email me at natkin(a)gmail com or
sharonschambernetwork(a)gmail com for any help with the downloads.

I hope this helps a bit.

-Neil

P.S.

If you could please help spread the word about our site we would
greatly appreciate it.


Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
I signed up back when the site opened, but I couldn't get
anything to download 'cos the links didn't work.

Maybe it take longer to reach OZ by carrier pigeon
lol.  I will keep trying

Hi all,

I too signed up but I don't think I will be downloading either of the two
free patterns - one is 62Mb and the other is 57Mb unless they are fairly
spectacular.  I have Adobe V8.1 on my computer and all I wanted was the
pattern not the program.  I have broadband as well.

Regards,
Di

Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
I tried to download the patterns as well.  I walked away & did some ironing
& when I came back, they still hadn't downloaded, so I have now deleted the
email with the links in them.  That is just too ridiculous, IMNSHO.  I have
a new computer with DSL connection & there is no way I'm going to tie up my
computer that long to download a pattern that I don't even know what it
looks like.

Just my two cents . . .

Pauline,

I'm with you.  I have high speed internet.  I'm not going to wait and wait
to see a pattern when I don't even know what it is.  Gonna delete the
messge, too!

Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
I have downloaded the two patterns in the original package.  They are very
nice floral patterns that use Sharon's unique piecing techniques.  They also
have wonderful demonstrations and directions.  I got a message today that
the download has been redesigned to be easier to use by those with slower
systems.  Try to give them a  little slack...they were made aware of the
problem and have quickly moved to improve it.  I'm pleased to have these two
new patterns.....if you had purchased as similar one from Sharon, it would
cost about $10.  Thank you!

I agree with you, Kathyl. The patterns are lovely, and the instructions
on how to do them are very detailed and clear. I've taken classes from
Sharon, and her patterns are usually $10 and up for the same thing.
These are free! :)

Sandy,

If I recall corectly,Sharon was selling them for $15 each. I have
about 3 more different ones that we I will have giving out before
launch as a "Thank You". But they will have the great tutorials
downsized to under 20megs for easier download.

Thank you all for your support. And keep an eye out middle of next
week for a great speical offer with two patterns and a video tutorial
as well.

Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
I actually thought they were $15 when I wrote the note....but I thought it
would be better to underestimate than to over state the price.  I know I
bought at least one after taking her class in Paducah this year.  They are
wonderful patterns.  A very nice addition to my pattern library!

Re: Sharon Schamber's new site. Free stuff.
I signed up and got the free files, but can't print them. And a black
and white line drawing just looks like a lot of work for questionable
results.

This may be a free download, but not sure that it is usable. Sigh.

One of the hazards of the industry.

There is a tutorail for it as well. After I resize it tomorrow I will
have it back up on the website and a newsletter will go out to all the
members.

It is a great tutorial that will explain exactly how to construct the
block.

Pati,
