Thank you, Carolyn, for the heads-up. I'm trying my best to avoid Amazon these days, because I know they take a big bite from the sellers. Instead, I'm trying to go to the source as much as possible. Margaret told me she just got out of the hospital and won't be allowed to drive to the post office for a while. I would rather wait and get it directly from her when she has sufficiently recovered. In the mean time, I went ahead and ordered the Basic Course to keep me going until then.
Hello Carolyn, I was thrilled to find your step-by-step photos of laying the grid for pag lace. I am a complete beginner to lace making and had no idea of where to start, this has been very helpful. Your work is stunning, just had a quick peak at your photos, you've certainly done a lot. I will continue to follow the group, I intend to start my sample of pag lace in the new year when I've completed all my Christmas projects. Thank you again for your help.
Sorry, but I am in USA for a month only - 2 day workshop in Denver, then on to Washington/Bethesda for the IOLI convention, and then across to Seattle to visit the family, and give a 2 day workshop there, - then home! (and a good rest!!! :) )
A pity we can';t meet, but I can understand when life, family and other things get in the way. You are not alone in that!!!
A microscope image for the THREADS group logo sounds just exactly right. Whenever you have the time. When you post the image, please post it to our PHOTOS. That way members will be able to see the whole original image in all its detail. When I plug it into the icon slot for the group, the software will create a small version just for that, but the original will stay in its original condition.
The threads and fibers thing is of interest to most of our members, I think. And it is possible that arachne members and other fiber enthusiasts may find the discussions and photos useful. And our capacity to show pictures makes any verbal discussion doubly valuable.
I will create a group called THREADS, so any discussion can go there. After you have posted photos, I will create a PHOTO ALBUM called THREADS and collect your photos there. Will this work?
So ever since I watched your presentation on Saturday, I've been so excited to start needlelacing. I found some info on the web and have begun. Then it hit me that you did a presentation on the bee for our group last fall. I guess I wasn't ready then. I'm so glad that I went saturday.
Thank you for the infor about where the photos came from. As I understand it, anything published 1923 or earlier is out of copyright. Perhaps the one image of the bedspread is OK to post. I am relieved that we can use the important lace photos themselves.
I was making such an elementary mistake,-it's embarrassing! I forgot to 'Save'; shhh--. Haven't had time to check out everything on the forum yet. It's seems just great. Thanks again for telling me about it.
Thank you for taking the time to scan those laces. The postcard may have been cheap to buy, but the photographer still owns the copyright, and we should not post the image here. The butterfly, as I understand it, is a piece you own, and therefore that one is OK. An interesting piece. There is something about how the software works that you need to know. If you upload a photo to our PHOTOS section, the full size image in all the original detail gets saved, so we can view all the detail. If you upload a photo into a text box in a discussion or group, the program resizes the photo to fit the box and deletes the excess. Therefore the image that gets stored lacks the detail in your original scan. Parts are missing. Since we really need photos of Halas for us to understand that particular style, I'd prefer that you upload the 2 butterfly shots to our PHOTOS (I will approve them) and delete the comment. That way we get the best quality images.
Welcome. Please go to NOTES and read the first three. They are about our community guidelines and how the software works. If you have any problems with the software or how do to things, let me know and I'll try to help.
