    DJ,

    This is the second time in about a month that the site has been totally unavailable. I have no idea what is wrong. The previous time, I was able to find "windows" of availability and did send an email or two. I also sent an email to the French version of the site. I received NO response from anybody.

    When it did come back earlier, I found it was offering the daily freebie even when down and we ended up missing one because it was down 6 days!

    I don't know hot to contact them. If anybody knows, please do so! I think I have over 1000 free designs from them now.
    There is no such thing as a stupid question!

    The Italian version of the club has not been available for about 1 month.
    The German version was gone about 3 weeks ago, and
    the English one is gone too now.
    As far as I know there has no explanation.

    The French site is still available - but in my case I was cut off after 3½ year membership.
    A couple of weeks later they gave me a new password. That was about 1 year ago.
    I still try - but it doesn't work all the time though.
    I thought maybe they did that to remind me that I had received over 900 free charts,
    and maybe it is time to take a membership?

    I am not complaining, they have been incredibly generous.
    No - I don't have an email address.
    The only one I have is the one I get to cancel the newsletter:

    The French site doesn't have the last 5 days of free designs. It only has one free at a time. I don't like that.

    I keep getting emails from them pressuring me to cough up and join but I'm not gonna do it! Partially - BECAUSE they keep pressuring me!

    Today the French page only has 4 freebies.
    That is not a problem for me, because I check every day.

    It also allowed me to download the last one, which I did not, because I already had it.
    By the way - they gave me the new password - I didn't ask for it.

    Thanks for the information. I didn't realize you could "join" and don't think I've received any pressure to do so. I've used and enjoyed many of the charts, though. I've "purchased" some, too, with points I've earned. I hope they contine to be available.

    It was there one day and gone the next and relieved it is not just me that can't find the site. I have some lovely charts from them so can't complain.
    Take care everyone, Jean

    When looking at one of the freebie links saw the above site link so tried it and it came up BUT the charts showing are not what comes up when you click to download but there is a message stating there is an error so I suppose they are working on trying to get up and running again.
    Take care everyone, Jean

    English and German versions are back today!

    http://cross-stitchers-club.com/?code_avantage=yvdisp

    ... and both show all former freebies.

    By the way - the different language versions do not always have the same freebies.
    Once in a while a freebie will be different...

    The English site is up but it won't let me log in - It just spins it's wheels when I enter the password with a french message about verification. If I enter the WRONG password it comes back fast that it doesn't match but if I enter the right one, it just spins it's wheels!

    You are right. I didn't actually try to download till tonight, so I didn't notice that.

    The German one is the same.
    Tonight the Spanish page is also back up, but I don't have membership there,
    so I don't know if has the same problem.
    The Italian page is still missing.
    I wonder if maybe they had a crash that damaged all the foreign pages.
    It looks like they are working on restoring them...

    I found out that after that verification starts to circle, you can hit refresh and you will be logged in. However, that doesn't help much. You can't download!

    I tried 2 -- one just said an error has occurred and the other says the page doesn't exist!

    They were down more than 5 days and it appears that they continued to add the freebies as if they were up and so we lose out on those over 5 days ago! That's not fair!

    Diane - if you still have your French membership, try to download from there.
    They are still allowing me to download the French charts, even though they cut me off 1 year ago.

    I tried them again last night. I just tried to download without checking if I already had it - as a test. The latest pattern gave me the error that "an error had occurred" and the image displayed with the error was NOT the image of the pattern I tried to download -- nor was it free. That gave the confusing message of a free pattern and a charged pattern.

    This site is useless and they don't answer emails! What good does it do to "offer" free patterns and then not allow them to be downloaded?

    I tried the English version and got the same errors as everyone else.
    Decided to try French version and it let me download and save the 2 I didn't have.
    Of course the name is not English, but I can fix that.
