I Must Apologize! (Confusion about "Lable")

I am posting this to both clarify and apologize for any misunderstanding that people may have had about pictures I posted recently. For those of you who have seen the green yarn that I spun in lace weight from fiber I purchased years ago from Widdershin Woolworks. When I spun some of this yarn for missalicefaye and then wrapped the belly band around the finished yarn, she posted it as a pretty photograph on her blog. I've also posted pictures of the belly band by itself and with the fiber in it on my blog. I have received a kind message from someone who has seen these photographs and it appears that some people believe I am using this artwork as my own label.

Please Please Please! I had no intention of implying this is my label and had no idea that anyone would think that. I am hoping to contact the original artist in order to apologize for my grave error and am posting this to clarify. In future, I will not be posting labels as I am very concerned about what has happened. If anyone else knows how I might contact the original artist to apologize I would appreciate that help.

I hope I can correct this mistake and I appreciate your patience with me and my errors.

Sigh--I'm so sorry to have caused you this trouble. :(

That is strange- I was not confused at all- and believe that ball band to be a beautiful way to show where it came from, and a wonderful peice of artwork!
Please keep up the great work!

I wasn't confused either. I'm sorry you're having such a problem!

P.S. It is a lovely ball band though!

You are forgiven! Whatever! Don't lose any sleep about it.

Oh for pity's fleegle said, don't lose sleep. "Someone" needs to get over themselves and realize a marketing opportunity when they see one.
The very worst thing you've done is given "WW" some free advertising. One can clearly see the name on the label. And if they've made it this far into blogland, they can google it and get contact information to buys some.

i agree with fleegle. don't sweat it my dear!

Don't worry about it, I am with the rest of the responders.

Jane, could you please email me, I have a question I want to put to you.
MissAliceFaye, would you please do the same,

Jane and missalicefaye,

Sorry for the confusion.
I know now that the label is for the fiber.
Pardon me for any trouble I may have caused.
Happy knitting and spinning.

Jane said...

Dear missalicefaye,

You did not cause me trouble! This was just a misunderstanding and it has been clarified and all is well. Do not let this affect your pleasure in your yarn! Have fun knitting!

Jane said...

Dear shell,

Thank you for your kind response. I think the things are now cleared up and There is no longer a problem with my being able to post the label so long as it is very clear it goes with the fiber. This was just one of those fluke things that happens in the blog word :-)

Jane said...

Dear anon,

Things are cleared up and actually the persons concerned were very very kind. It was just a misunderstanding but I appreciate your comment and the fact that you were not confused.

Jane said...

Dear fleegle,

Thank you. As always, you are direct and kind. Of course, menopause means I get very little sleep and end up blogging in the middle of the night :-)

Jane said...

Dear Valerie,

I have had communication from the artist who is very nice and fine with me displaying the label. It's very old stash fiber so I actually doubt you can get any now since she's a Tibetan Nun, but I do appreciate your support. Thank you for it!

Jane said...

Dear Opal,

I won't sweat it now that things have been cleared up. Thank you for your support!

Jane said...

Dear Kathy,

Thank you for weighing in! I will be happy to contact you.

Jane said...

Dear miyamojo,

I am happy things are cleared up and I will be much more careful in future to be sure there is no confusion as to the label/fiber thing :-) Happy knitting!
