Not sure if this has been posted already but Yoriko will be closing her site by December. May will be the last chance to purchase a membership before her site is shut down. So sad to see another great site going. It costs a lot to keep a website going and these digitizers need all the support they can get in order to keep their sites running and secure for customers to use. They have to sell heaps of designs just to cover costs, before they can even take an income themselves, so please support your favourite sites keep them in business.

If you see this Yoriko, wishing you all the best for the future, whatever comes your way. Thank you for all the freebies and lovely designs you have shared over the years.

Yoriko is simply not taking in as much each month as the website costs to run. I had this from her this morning, "Otherwise, I am okay and traveling to Japan in June, for 2 weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing my family again."

Thank you for letting us know. I am glad she is OK but very sad her website didn't get the financial support to keep it open. It is unfortunate that many websites close due to a lack of paying customers.

So sad to see a great site close. I have liked to keep up with subscriptions to My Garden. I will miss it. Best of luck in the future Yoriko. Hugs

So very sad indeed, I do pray that Yoriko gets lots of orders between now and then. Her FSL designs are really cute. Good luck in her future and with her family. Love Chris

Sad, bummer and darn! I always liked Yoriko and her designs. I hope all Cuties give her a big boost and as much support as possible in the months left. Thanks
