I hope all our members love this idea as much as I do. Tapestry interest suggested this new newsletter feature. We will feature a draft, you provide the treading and we'll see what do many great minds come up with!
Pkease feel free to post pictures of actual weaving from this draft or possible tread lungs designed on paper or in your weaving software here!
We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Just had a lot of fun playing with this draft. Unfortunately my screen shot function is not cooperating, so I'll have to post pictures later!
OK figured it out! Here are my variations, I look forward to seeing yours!
This one is my favorite!
No time to plug in my program & try this - I will later. Would be nice to see how the repeat shows up - as an experiment, of course, you can select the parts of the draft that work for you & discard the rest... but the repeat affects the entire cloth.
I did put the repeat in my software, but did not notice that the screen shot is too narrow to show it! I'll make sure to scale it next time!
software - I have 2 programs & used to know both; always had problems with output, display.
I think next time I'll print a PDF then convert to a JPG/GIF in photo editing software! Speaking of next time, I need to get on the next newsletter!
What newsletter are you referring to? I think I want to get it, too!
These appear in the Weavolution Newsletter! You can sign up from the Weavolution front page.
Erica - I'm not usually such a dolt, but I've now spent about 5 minutes at Weavolution home page & can't find anything like a newsletter. Searching on term Weavolution Newsletter didn't bring me there, either. What am I missing?
Peg - me too! I can't find anything about a newsletter either, so you're not alone.
The original post was from a year ago. I signed up for the Weavo newsletter (more than once I think), but never recieved one. I assumed it never got off the ground!
I went to the home page just now, and I don't see an option for signing up for a newsletter. Is that because I am supposedly already signed up, or did it disappear with the migration?
In the meantime, I was thinking anyone can play with this draft in their software, and post the results to this thread!
Yep, Sally, I know I can play with the draft in my software. I figured since Erica's reply was today, she knew where the sign up was & I didn't want to miss out cool weaving info!
