Signing Off

When I started this Blog almost 2 years ago...I envisioned postings followed by questions asked and answered...which would lead to more information about the history of print and dye technology developments. It has not quite worked out that way.

I think for now...I will suspend Cottonopia. Margo Krager

  1. Sigh ... I am sorry you are stopping. I've loved it. Sorry I'd didn't have questions.
    P.S. I love that Dargate page, too. Those effervescent pinks. The swatches meke me think of opals.

  2. I am so sorry too that you are stopping ~ I've been a loyal reader and absorb every posting and appreciate very much your time and effort. I've loved it as well. I've been reluctant to ask questions because I've felt that you have committments and didn't want to burden you further. When I've asked questions via your website/email, they've gone unanswered...

  3. Margo, i am sorry that you have decided to give up this blog but it is one of the regular blogs that i visit. i have enjoyed learning more about fabrics from the past. I do hope that you will continue to show pictures from the dargate books. it makes me appreciate and value antique style fabrics. will be visiting repro fabrics tho

  4. I am sorry to hear we missed your email query. My staff and I spend time each day answering email and phone questions. Sometimes the question gets moved to my email box...for a more detailed answer and maybe I missed the one that was yours.
    Last week I spent 34 minutes with a potential re enacting customer discussing appropriate fabrics...socia-economic status, geographical location...dye and printing technology availablity. Margo

  5. I'm sorry to hear you're stopping Cottonopia; I shall miss checking in to see what topic you're discussing. I have enjoyed all the fabric and dye history you've freely shared; it's been helpful when I think about what fabrics to select to represent a particular time period. Thank you.

  7. So many apologies above.........obviously, I am not the only person who sees the great value in your work, to our benefit. I have been a loyal reader and appreciate the historical details that have been added to my notes from the wonderful class I took from you in VT. Not being real comfortable at the computer, I haven't posted any comments but that doesn't mean it hasn't been a great blog!!

  8. I'm sorry to see this blog go also. Obviously I don't read it very often since the news of you suspending it was posted several weeks ago. The problem I have was I had to remember to go and check for a new posting as I haven't been able to get it to set up on Google Reader where I keep up with most of the blogs I follow. Also, I have sent in comments on this blog which have never been posted? Its been long enough ago that I don't remember if they were questions or just comments. I will miss the info you have provided and hope that you find another way to share knowledge!

  10. Margo,
    Hope you start back up again soon. I've really enjoyed reading and looking at your great fabrics.
    I've also had problems with your blog not showing up in the google reader and with your blog address. Be not dismayed.

  12. I hope you do start the blog up again. I have learned so much from your posts. I agree with Sandra -- it is our loss.

  13. I'm sorry to read that you aren't posting to this blog anymore. I was so excited when I just found it again after losing my blog roll. I wish I knew enough to ask questions. I'm going to put it back on my blog roll just in case you start posting again.
