No, you don’t need to have a wordpress account – you can still access my new blog without an account and also see a lot of my content.

Due to recent copyright issues, I have elected to protect my efforts and research by creating a more secure format.

After I took down my blog completely I was contacted by multiple viewers and asked to start blogging again and they proposed a membership system. I liked this idea of posting in a protected environment because it will prevent my content from further copyright issues as well as any further information and tutorials I am going to post in the future.

A membership on my page contributes to the maintenance of my new blog as well as physical materials for examples of technique and different textiles used as example. This also allows me to add content at a faster pace.
