I love Sew Retro's blog (http://sewretro.blogspot.com/) It's been on my daily visit list since I found it a few months ago.

But as of today I can't get to it. I'm getting a message page from Blogger saying I now have to sign in with a Google account to view.? Anyone else have this happening? I don't really want to create an account. Another thing to remember. But I guess might have to.

Thoughts/ideas you can share?

Even signed in, I get the message it's now invitation-only to even read.

Oh no! This is so sad! I loved seeing what all the creative ladies had made. I knew I should have bookmarked some of the individual blog sites. The only one I can remember off the top of my head is Handmade Jane (she makes lovely things!). Maybe I can find others thru her blog.

Thanks for posting and letting me know it's become an invite-only.

This is so sad, I love reading that blog! I hope that it's just a mistake. :]

ETA: The email for the blog is sewretro@hotmail.com if anyone wants to try to contact them. I may shoot an email later if I have a chance.

I faced the same situation this morning and even after I signed in, I couldn't access it. When I came home, I tried from my home computer. Same problem. I figure something is quite wrong!

Same here. Glad to see it's not just me!
Presumably it's a glitch with blogger that will be rectified... I've been visiting that site daily for years now and would really miss it were I no longer able to access it!

I am also unable to access the site today. I last checked the blog on Saturday and it was fine and there was no mention they were altering the acess or limiting it. I really hope they fix it up so we can all access it again. I love the site!

Must have been a glitch. I can access it this morning.

Doesn't appear to be a glitch for me. I still can't access this morning. Really a bummer.

Subject: Yay! I just got in thru a link from Date: 7/12/11 10:29 AM

http://blog.caseybrowndesigns.com/
That's Casey's Elegant Musings blog. I'm not sure what is going on. Could not get in from direct typing the blog addy or Googling. Perhaps it is a big 'ol glitch afterall. Just glad I can access again. Off to read and bookmark.
