Sharon Schamber Network

Sharon Schamber Network

Postby QuilterLynn » Fri Jan 21, 2011 10:43 am

Anyone know anything about Sharon Schamber Network? I can't get it to come up........Makes me glad I downloaded all her stuff to my hard drive and didn't depend on watching them online. They seem to have frequent technical problems.

Her lessons are so thorough......although sometimes I want to mutter, "Just get on with it!" :oops:

My attempts to log on are unsuccessful. The site has been shut down, and there is no answer if you call, no response if you email. Total irresponsibility, and fraud, actually. Hundreds of people signed up (moi included) and paid a lot of money. If there is an illness or extenuating circumstance, a short note or explanation would be quite appropriate. Yet I see she is touring around teaching. I hope she is well, but, color me MAD. :evil:

:roll: Yeah, I could be encouraged to be angry too. I'll let it slide for awhile and see what happens. Perhaps we'll get an explanation. If not, well.........we'll see.

I had an email from Scharon saying they had a big problem with their website and may have to set up a new one.They are trying to retrieve files. Notices should be forthcoming to others. She will let you know when things are up and working. Nan in cold Massena NY

Thanks Nan. Good to know. Wonder why the rest of us didn't get the same email. Or maybe you are a personal friend of Sharon's.

I just got the e-mail, too, and I'm not even a paying member of her site. I've just used the free things there.

Interesting. Nothing here, and I'm a paying member. Hmm. Well, let's wait and see. Goodness knows we all know how frustrating a technical problem can be!

Lynn, just checked my emails and I got one from Neil also:

As some of our members have noticed our website is down at the
moment. We have experienced a server crash and we are doing our
very best to recover the data and get the site back up as soon as
possible. We are not sure as to how long this might take but we
will be back up and running as quickly as possible.

If for some reason we are unable to bring the site back online in
the next two days I will be building another server just for our
premium members to access the classes.

We are very sorry for this inconvenience.

Hopefully it doesn't take long but it is what it is and they'll do what they can. I had been wondering if there was a problem as the forum had dissappeared and there hadn't been anything new in months. I wanted to try her method for the cording and I think I remember from watching it, but as that one video apparently didn't get saved I hope I remember right.

thanks Cher. Now we know! And it's not anything to be upset about. As I said, technical glitches seem to be a part of a normal life these days.

Yes, we all just received the information. Very glad Sharon is O.K., of course. There have, however, been no new videos, classes, or any information for some months. I guess I am just so spoiled by TQS. The only surprises here are always good ones! :D

I wanted to try her basting method and was unhappy that I wasn't able to log on. Where there's a will there's a way and I finally came up with the thought to try to access that video through You Tube. It worked! Betty D Delaware OH

Sharon Shambers sent a newletter saying they had a computer server crash and they are working at getting up again.
