- Holiday hours
Ariane Wed, 12/19/2018 - 12:22
Long time no blog post, hey? We've been mainly working on behind the scenes stuff the last several months, so we haven't really had any news to share on here. But there will be some more news and exciting things afoot in the new year and into the spring, so not to fear!
Holiday hours: of course Textillia is never closed - it will be there for you 24/7 just like always! But we’re actually going to take some proper time off from Textillia admin work for the holidays. (Shocking, I know, I think despite everything this is my first official “vacation” from it since launching the beta site!) Bruno will be off for this coming week and New Years (Dec. 22 - Jan. 1), and because of how my infusion treatment schedule lines up, I’m going to be off a couple extra days on each end, from tomorrow Dec. 20th through to Jan. 4th.
I’ll still have a new set of homepage features up this Friday, but it’ll stay up for two weeks through the holidays, so if you have any special holiday makes, be sure to get them uploaded before I pick the features this Friday!
- Our big software upgrade is nearly complete - we need testers!

Hi everyone, Bruno here!
I wanted to give you all an update on the work I’ve been doing over the last few months, as the big software upgrade is nearly ready to roll out, and we could use your help testing it. I’ll give you a few details on what the upgrade means, and I’ve put together some info on how you can help with this last step of the process.
- Update for community members - taking a little spring "break"

I debated whether this warranted an official blog post, but decided it was the best way to reach those who don't follow us on Instagram. I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be taking a little break from posting on Textillia's social media, and further scaling back my presence here - just temporarily, barring any unforeseen events.
It's for a good reason, as *drum roll* I finally got a diagnosis for the mysterious progressive illness that I’ve been so debilitated by the past several years! I’ll spare you the details here, but the condition is autoimmune so it should be treatable. Not curable, as it is a chronic condition after all, but if I respond half decently to the treatment, I should be able to function quite a bit better. Some people respond quickly, others take from several months to a year, so it’s still going to be a long road, but I finally have a diagnosis and treatment plan, and real hope to get at least somewhat better (or at least stop getting worse)!

Big news: Textillia's homepage, and Patterns + Fabrics sections are now and forevermore PUBLIC!!! This means that if you aren't a member yet or you're not logged in, you can see the homepage (minus the featured projects), and search the patterns and fabrics database! Projects, member profiles, commenting, etc. are still members-only, but now everyone can get a good feel for the site before joining. All part of our "get out of beta" preparations!
And in case you missed it, the Textillia blog now has an RSS feed and we're also on Bloglovin' (both links are also at the bottom of the site) - be sure to subscribe so you don't miss out on any posts! (You can keep an eye on the updates thread in the forums for more detailed announcements of all the new features on Textillia.)
