    Fine with the green. Any way to illustrate the others?

    So the run was based on a swatch too light, and some people deciding against it for those reasons, only for a darker shade to be moved ahead with only after the subscription was closed and people had already staked their claim for the other, lighter color? This process seems absurd.

    are you in on the run? JW, maybe he sent out some PMs or something that might not be in this thread to those who were committed

    That is my point -- I was not in the run. I and others declined to proceed because the swatch was light. The last-minute switcheroo seems stupid.

    Ahh, you're saying you would be in if you had known it was darker and are disappointed to not be included, yes? That's understandable then

    The 2nd swatch that B posted in the thread was different than the original I posted (from when he first tried to get this off the ground), and some subscribers communicated concerns to him. He then went back for this latest, darker swatch. Sorry if the process wasn't great , but in the end hopefully everyone is either getting something they are happy with or are able to decline if it's not what they were hoping for with the shade. FWIW if you like this version, you can still get in on the run.

    The subscription never officially closed because B wanted to get the final sample swatch to show everyone before we officially closed subscriptions and moved forward. That seemed reasonable to me. I did not track everyone who expressed interest who ultimately decided not to subscribe, and it did not occur to me to look back through the thread and PM's when changes in shade occurred since I had handed the list of subscribers off to B. Sorry.

    Sorry for any one who feels inconvenienced.
