UPLOADING A PROFILE PICTURE
If you are experiencing difficulty in uploading a profile Picture I would suggest accessing the sign-up page via Google Chrome.
Ideal size proportions for a profile photo are 72×72 pixels, but just about any image will work as long as it is a GIF, JPG or PNG image that is under 10 MB in size. We recommend square images that are no larger than 183×183 pixels. Photos uploaded to this area that are not square will be cropped to fit in the space provided.
Here are some other tips that might help:
1. Ensure your Flash is up-to-date (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/)

I am in search of "illusion" fabric. I am in the midst of hooking a Snakes and Ladders game board and would like to hook the ladders in silver illusion. I have been told that it is no longer available but perhaps one of the members may have some they would be willing to part with. I certainly hope so. Thanks for posting this request for me.
