Problems logging in to Sewing Mamas?

We strongly recommend that use Firefox as your browser while using Sewing Mamas.   If you notice something weird happening, and you are using a different browser, it may be a browser bug.  Try switching to Firefox to see if the issue resolves. 

Can't find the link to register?  Here you go!!

Everything is marked 'private' No you're not banned. 

If you are attempting to log in, and all forums are marked 'private' or you get a message that says you don't have permission to post, don't despair! This means that you changed some setting -- on your computer or on the site.  First, try logging in.

If that doesn't help, check your email.  You have changed your password or email account.  When you do either of these things you are locked out of Sewing Mamas until you go into your email and click on the 'activate' link again.  See below if you didn't get that email.  You can have it sent again by accessing your Control Panel when you log in.
