    Hi Sharon, why am I getting two emails about the same stitch a day apart? It never used to happen. Not sure which one to unsubscribe from as I do not want to miss out all together. What have I done? Please advise.

      I have no idea why Louise – if it continues unsubscribe from one of them as I would say its a glitch of some sort
