This week, only three new publications – sorry, there have been too many other things interfering. But they are three lovely ones, and I hope they inspire people to take up a needle and thread – or a blackboard chalk. PUBLICATIONS The first on the list is Cusack’s Blackboard Drawing. It’s a training course for […]
Only four publications this week, since there’s been some administration to catch up with. PUBLICATIONS The first one is an ebay image donation of ebay seller cotswoldcats, a lovely length of embroidery for an unknown purpose, and its charted design.

Another eight publications this weekAnd drat, I forgot the rice paper flowers! That’s for next time. Judith pointed out to me that my administrative backlog is worse than the publication backlog, so next time will have less publications than this one – but they will all get done (eventually). First, a bit of a riddle […]
We had ourselves a time last night, we did.It started rough. I get to the theater an hour before curtain, Sam is there, we’re rezzing our avatars and costumes into the sim, I’m checking the set. Then I try to use my microphone. Nothin. I didn’t panic, at first. I hear Sam fine, he can’t […]

Originally posted by Thinkerer Selby Evans Reposted Archive by Admin Article Author: Sytske There was this question, what use is the Antique Pattern Library? We, New Media Arts, have our charitable purpose, where it’s worded to perfection of course, but what about the actual good it is? How do people profit from having that resource […]
It’s a familiar fact that in theater, roles written for men outnumber roles written for women. By a ratio of 2:1.*Avatar Repertory Theater, in its six year history of producing live, virtual theater, has usually counted in its roster about equal numbers of male and female voice actors. We’ve filled our character lists by casting […]
The first is one of Marleens patterns, charted and since it’s a quarter pattern, with an extra illustration to show the complete pattern. Second, another of Flora Klickmanns books, “Pillow lace and handworked trimmings”. There’s three sections, Pillow lace, Needlepoint laces and handmade collars, Embroideries and trimmings, so it’s best qualified as a various-techniques book.
Sytske and I are planning a series of short notes on ways to approach editing the scans for Antique Pattern Library. There are many ways to do it, and we each prefer different software and workflows. Some things are true for all of the books.So here goes. OK, not so short today…Right now I’m working […]
