  • Re: New website

    I agree with the graphic designer about the sizing of the graphics and I also have a couple of big screen monitors, Might I suggest using Wordpress as your content management system? You'll get better SEO and opportunity to use keywords like crazy. I use www.themehybrid.com for my sites because it's...

    Thanks for this information. I will start looking into this from the art perspective. Is there anyone out there in the US who has another suggestion? I will post what I find in this forum, too.

  • Re: Do you feel confident in your quilts artistic merits?

    I just finished my 1st solo piece. It was quite an ambitious project so I'm really pleased to have achieved it. I laid it on my table and I admire it and have shown it to my friends and neighbors who think it is wonderful (so much for my doubts). Only I know there are mistakes in it, after all it...

    I'm back from my trip. It was one of the best we've done. In addition to all the cultural things, I had my eyes open for anything to do with fabric. I approached seamstresses and bargained with them to buy their silk scraps. It was so much fun and they had a huge variety of designs on the fabric...

  • Re: Do you remember your first?

    Hi You really asked two questions. When can you call yourself an artist and What was that one thing that you created with fabric that hooked you that made you never look back? I entered a photo of my first quilt on this website about a month ago. Basically it was 9/11/2001 and I had just moved here so...

    Belinda, Thanks for taking the time to respond. I've been reading a tour book about the places we want to see and I think that I"ll be able to immerse myself during the 5 weeks. I think it will be important for me to add words as you suggest so that I know what my intent was when I did the sketch...

    Approachable Art, My husband has a high quality camera and he is taking photos to remember the trip by. My camera is just a point and shoot (digital) and I'm using it to gather images for art later on. I'll stick them in photoshop and manipulate them, use parts of them, etc. to create art quilts...
