For my folks that have been solidly loyal since my daughter's death... this blog post is for you!
This is all public record.
If you'd rather listen to this....
JAMMIE CHAT recording is up on our Facebook Group.
Find it by doing a search in the group for "Press Release 2"
THE RECORDING IS A SPECIAL ONE!
It's long... I make no excuses... listen to it while you do dishes, laundry, etc...Or while you're just tidying up your sewing room or perhaps cutting out your next project. Get to know us. This was the first formal update I had done since 2017.
If you have any doubts this is all very real....
For starters... look at the image below. How would YOU deal with having dozens of hateful women storming your staff, family, business and yourself?
They organized to destroy the biz- and to make it difficult for my customers to have access and get my work.
MANY PEOPLE HAVE ASKED QUESTIONS, SO LET ME FILL YOU IN A BIT.
They stole my work... most of you know that.... but did you know they rallied together in a secret group to intensify their hateful efforts?
That proves the conspiracy. "Poke and Retreat and the next one will do the same. Confusion and CONSTANT PRESSURE.... "
Can't make this shit up. Think about it....
"Confusion and Constant Pressure"
Who enjoys doling out that?!?!?! These people did!
Yeah... when you destroy and steal my work - what do you expect in return?
By the way, Julie Vanderhoek (Canada) wrote this AFTER I sent her a Cease and Desist type correspondence as instructed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police back in 2017.
And what the ____ is a "fatal error"? In sewing?!?!?!? Think about the gaslighting going on here. We didn't get access to this until 2018. This was on a Kathy Rees owned venue (to the best of our belief). Julie in Canada may have had admin powers, there, tho.
And think of Julie... she's one of those "do gooder" types that even volunteers for her neighborhood watch program through their local police up there! What is WRONG with people?!?!?! Sheeesh.
KEEP IN MIND:
The malicious attacks continued until we filed suit in December of '18.
Something about being held accountable takes the fun out of being bullies. Even Julie and her buddies removed hundreds of hateful posts she had up on Facebook.
So here's what I threatened.... and yeah... it's slow.... but it's moving forward:
It's public record. If you want the whole thing, you can download it here.
When you read about Parsons... just know that she got her way... lol... all the way into Federal Court now. It's not over for her, either.
In the US, we have conspiracy laws so we could go get a few Americans that enjoyed playing with Julie & Kathy. That's pretty cool.
This is all public record. Our Star Defendant-Julie Crooks.
Want to know what I think is INSANE about all of this? To the best of my knowledge, this chick only ever bought a $5 pattern from me in about 2014. I don't think I ever met her. But yet... she haunted and harassed me since 2014. She alleges I "stalked" her. Hell... She lives about 10 miles away from my studio... but I have never laid eyes on her house. Ever.
We have waited 3.5 years (since filing the case) to move forward. We FINALLY get to do depositions sometime soon. It's looking like this horrible woman is probably related to Sew Together Bag "author" Michelle Tucker. I've taken crap from these rotten people for EIGHT years.
And Sew Together Bag? It seems that was a free pattern on the internet about 3 years before the "genius" Michelle Tucker wrote it into English, slapped it up on Craftsy and claimed it as her own. I digress. But the hate that has rained down on me over Bionic Gear Bag (for being bigger and laying out differently) was outrageous - given that it seems that the STB was nothing but a knock off of something Japanese. (the image of the original Japanese pattern is laid out weird... but I'll post it at the end of this page - some of you will find it familiar)
So to everyone that says "oh, take the high road" ... or... " just ignore it and it will go away".... well... y'all need to go through what I've been through and you wouldn't dare utter those words. Everything I had was destroyed - and all in the wake of my daughter's death. Think of that.
So... poor baby (Crooks) ... she wanted out of this lawsuit. She challenged FIVE CLAIMS that we are making against her and her tribe. This is all public record - here's a summary of the 19 page order.SHE FAILED AT ALL FIVE. How would you like to be this chick's hubby right about now? lol
So as I continue to try to move forward, it's time for this to be known. It's all public record - anybody can get copies online if they'd like some bathroom reading. lol
Claims she lost - the case moves forward!
Lack of jurisdiction - She LOST - she lives in the same county as me! Duh!
Defamation - She LOST. It's not nice to call people names - what a concept. Especially when you're trying to smear someone to TENS of THOUSANDS of people on the internet.
Civil Conspiracy - She LOST. Golly gee... it was so much fun hanging out with hateful people like Kathy Rees, Julie Vanderhoek, Candie Staelens, etc.... and another 177 names we have in a database here that trashed me - even though they don't know me.
Civil Theft - This is priceless... talks about how the pattern (mine) was free. Really?!?!?! I never gave it away - but she and her buddies gave access to it being given away - in just one instance - 1,656 times. Think of that. Oh, she LOST at trying to get out of this one, too.
18 U.S.C. 1030 Claim - Computer systems crimes - Yep... the conspiracy destroyed my site & took it down for a period of time in '17-'18. As part of the conspiracy, she gets to answer to that, too. She LOST. Seems the goal was to make sure my customers couldn't access what they paid for.
Extreme and Outrageous Conduct (infliction of severe emotional distress) She LOST - the amount of stress, pain, and destruction this woman and her buddies caused is monumental. They truly destroyed my life in 2016 to now.
Attorney Fees - this one is laughable. She thinks she can be such a jerk and I should pay for it? Not hardly. She LOST at this one, too.
I can't wait to be able to say more after we get done with depositions!
My attorney filed one more suit, too... as soon as that jackass has been served, I'll get you all up to date.
Last thing... Crooks came back into our group on Facebook to nose around this month. I think that's hilarious. Over the years, the one thing we learned early on, is that you can't keep anybody out of a group. They use fake names, they can buy "seasoned" FB accounts, etc. So... might as well roll out the red carpet for these jerks..... because the truth is the truth.... and I wouldn't want to be in their skin right now.
Many thanks to everyone that has been solidly in my corner since I lost my daughter. You deserve to know what I wrote here.
With much love,
Sally and her Rock Star Team
