Your Wednesday note gives a list. #8 on the list says "Working a plait with a cross and twist", but the video it is linked to is about making a 4 pair braid/tape. Since the first lesson I've posted is about a plait/braid, I'd like the video on that subject, too.
Mark, thanks for the lists of your videos. That is exactly what I wanted. I think it will make it easier for people to find what they really need at their level. Sometimes when people are confronted with a few dozen videos, they just gasp in disbelief and don't know where to start.
Mark, thanks, whenever you have time. I've looked at our traffic statistics again. And I think that when you told your tatting groups about us, that did bring us both members, but also visitors. BOBBINLACE BEGINNERS and TATTING see the most traffic of any of our groups.
I'm trying to make beginner tutorials easier to find. We have had a lot of traffic to the BOBBIN LACE BEGINNERS group, but no posts by actual beginners. The resources are here, they just don't know how to find them. So I want to ask you to do something. Please make a list of the bobbin lace videos you have posted here, in the order in which a beginner should view them. (So such a person won't get confused going back and forth between videos and not understanding what comes first.) Please put the list into a comment here
About wire bobbin lace; the secret is to use very fine wire. This should come as no surprise to someone who makes lace with impossibly fine thread. Multiple plies of very fine wire works almost like thread. And instead of keeping your fingers off the wire, you need to be in touch with it all the time. Very short leashes and off you go.
Nice job! However, I wonder if you can help me be sure that I don't get unwanted mails or attention by signing up. I have deliberately not joined Facebook because they seemed to want so much personal information and I found myself being badgered to become a "friend" to a lot of people I didn't know. My identity has been stolen and I have enough trouble as it is without setting myself up for any more. Am I asking too much? Or the wrong questions? I am happy to be able to find things for myself on this site, but I don't want others to write me. suggestions?
Absolutely post a note on the IOLI org website about ioli.ning. Content should include 1. participation in ioli.ning is for anyone interested in handmade lace & membership in IOLI.org is not required 2.go to ioli.ning & look around, esp the groups & photos 3.you can only join from the ioli.ning page.
We are getting confused with these names. I'm going to use IOLI.org for the club, and ioli.ning for the ning site. or maybe just IOLI = the organization and ioli = ning site.
I'm not sure it is a good idea to post a note about laceioli on Facebook, on the IOLI website. We don't want people joining laceioli on Facebook, we want them to join ioli on ning. It is supposed to be possible to integrate ning sites with facebook. I haven't done anything with that because I don't understand it. If you do, perhaps you could figure something out. The problem is that just because a person is on facebook does not mean they get an automatic approval for ioli on ning. We still have to make sure they go through the membership approval process.
Thanks for the welcome, Mark...didn't know you managed the site. I don't do a lot of lace, per se, but I do tat, and thought I'd enjoy being a part of the group. I'm especially interested in the group that's based on lace designing with software, as that is what our Yahoo group, Tatting Designers, attempts to do. We also have an online class on Tuesdays (offshoot of Georgia's classes) and a FB group. Looking forward to interacting with everyone here.
