I have made a couple of quilts in my life time before youtube and did the best I knew how without anyone showing me.  Now my passion has grown to the point I think it about while I am eating, sleeping, taking a shower, playing with the dogs, visiting friends, and family.  I can't quit thinking about it.  Too bad I am almost 50 now and have a full time job with retirement not coming for another 17 yrs or so.  By then I will probably hurt so bad, I won't want to quilt. lol But anyway, I am doing the best I can considering.  It's slow going, but it's going.  

I joined up here to make new friends and have access to the How-to videos and get inspired from seeing all of your beautiful quilts.  Every time I click on the "How-to videos", I get an error message.  The error says: "Sorry, there was a problem with your last request!  Either the site is offline or an unhandled error occurred.  We apologize and have logged the error.  Please try your request again or if you know who your site administrator is let them know too".  I think others are having that same problem, I am not sure.  I emailed them and they told me to clear my cookies, cache, and turn off my computer for 5 minutes and to let them know if it didn't help.  Well it didn't help and I let them know and have not heard back from them yet.  I really want to see the How-to Videos.  I am able to see the QNNtv.com videos and have been loving them.  I have learned a ton.  But I am a little disappointed in this one? But I love looking at all your quilts..

Cherie from Texarkana, ARKANSAS, welcome! I'm also from Arkansas just up the road a bit. I look forward to becoming friends. I'm in Hot Springs Village.

Anyway, we are so happy to have you on QCA. Concerning your problem, have you tried another browser? Many are having success with Chrome. I had to use Firefox at first and then my Safari worked so go figure! They are working on the site as we speak and it has shown much improvement. What type of videos are you interested in seeing?

Please be certain to explore the site. We have just started a group called '"A Quilting Resource" where we are trying to post info that everyone needs. It's slow process but if there is a need we are getting it up as soon as possible.

Again, welcome. You will absolutely love the friends you meet here. (And I am so excited to see a fellow Arkansan!)

Hi Roxana, 

It's cool to see some fellow Arkansans..

I have tried using the two browers on my computer which are the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Chrome.  Neither one work and it don't work on my IPad, not my other computer.  :(

Cherie, I installed Firefox on my laptop and have had no problems since. Hope you get your problem settled. I have Arkansas family, live near Little Rock. Have not been there, but it's on my "must do" list.

I just tried Firefox and get the same message.  I even tried Safari using internet app on my samsung Note II phone and I know it is on a different network and everything and still get the same message.  Look below, see what I have circled in blue, that is where I get the following message.  Look below it.. I am going crazy.  Surely someone else is getting this message too?  I have tried it on several different computer, 4 different browsers. 2 different networks.  Still same message.  ugh!!!

Cherie that is what I kept getting until I tried opening the site in Google Chrome and then I was able to see everything.
