Tonight's talk (6th October) and workshop (7th October) with Paisley Patchers has been cancelled by the group, not by me. It seems that the group did not receive the booking forms I sent back earlier in the year, but didn't tell me about this until after I'd sent an e mail on 29th September, checking details for the booking. Despite sending me a friendly e mail on 30th September confirming that all was going ahead and giving me details of my overnight accommodation (an e mail that wasn't flagged as high priority or apparently needing a very rapid reply), by 2nd October they had decided to cancel, before I had a reasonable chance to reply to their e mail (due to the start of my Loch Lomond sashiko course), citing my non reply to their e mail of 30th September as the reason. It seems the group are sticking with this cancellation, although I e mailed them about it immediately. I'm sorry that some quilters will be disappointed about the workshop - I met some of the group at the Scottish Quilt Championships - but the decision to cancel was made by your group, not me!
(BTW, I have no idea why the formatting for this post has ended up all over the place - Blogger doesn't want to let me alter it either).
Re contacting me, sometimes I can't access my e mail because I'm away teaching or simply not at the keyboard. I know it may seem like I've got internet access all the time, but I don't use a smartphone and can only access my e mails when I've got my laptop. Also, even if there's wifi available, I don't use my laptop while I'm teaching other groups, or (as on Wednesday evening) attending a class myself. I might need to gather some further information or check other details before replying too. Please bear this in mind if I don't reply immediately (or in the early hours of the morning, as someone else seemed to expect me to do recently too).
