• don’t really know how this works – I’m new to this website and I’m trying to find the petite projects … the result of search told me to look in my profile under group benifits, but I could not find anything there . Is there some “trick” I do not know — I am logged in …

    So we are all here!!!! We should be talking up a storm! In other discussion groups the way to get everyone fired up is to bring up spanking your kids……………HA! that always generates a maelstrom. Let’s not do that. Let’s talk about how exciting all the instagram photos are across the bottom! These new embroiderers are amazing. I LOVE that…[Read more]

    • Patty, you crack me up! I love them all but the clutch is abfab. It’s probably my favorite too, until I blink and look at another pic.

    • Or let’s talk about the wonderful classes being offered for National Seminar 2018 in Louisville in October. Which one are you planning to take?

      • I am taking Rozashi with Margaret Kinsey — Ginger Jar — I think this piece is beautiful and I like it so much I think it is also finighable! I am also taking studio time for the final two days so I can work on my ginger jar and get a head start before heading home!

        What is everyone else taking!

  • Just in case anyone is having the same problem I was – I could not change my profile picture as long as I was using Explorer as my browser. When I changed to Chrome it was no problem.

  • [See picture for complete details!] I wanted to share my priorities with the group. I’m headed to Philadelphia, leaving Sunday returning the following Sunday. We are driving up for a library conference and I’ve been busy getting ready. My projects are kitted. To go bag is ready. Dog sitter lined up. Clothes? I’ll probably wait until Saturday…[Read more]

  • I just figured out how to see the discussion. Been looking for it for a few days. Still playing with the website and learning how it all works. Can anyone tell me how to get my photo to upload to my profile page? When I click on Upload nothing happens!

    • Hi Vera ~ I am slowly learning the new site as well. At upload, click on “select your file”. From there you can browse the pictures you have on your computer. Select a photo and click open. From there, it should start to upload. If not, hopefully Rand or someone else will reply.

      • Thanks for trying to help me, Christine. I have tried that (and tried and tried and…) When I click on “select your file” nothing happens, literally nothing. I have rebooted my computer, closed the browser and reopened, everything I can thing of and still nothing. I have contacted Rand to see if he can help.

        • You’re right. It’s as if it’s turned off at the moment. Hopefully Rand can help you soon.
          It’s such a minor thing but some of us like our ‘visuals’. :0)

    • Look! It’s Vera! So glad it finally worked.

  • Just figured it out; instead of pages of “who joined”, if you go to the top box that says “show”, and click on “updates”, only the recent conversations show up! I’ll get this thing figured out by hook or crook. *bangs cane*

    • Okay, Patty, I am still having trouble finding the latest comments on the discussion board. When I click on the box that says “show” or “updates” nothing happens. Any help you can offer would be GREATLY appreciated.

    • I don’t think it’s you, Vera, i think it is that there is no new discussion currently? Are you seeing all the previous comments from “five months ago” and such? I did get an email telling me you wrote this (sorry I was traveling) and it brought me here.
      this was AFTER I screwed up and clicked on “read” on my messages. I thought it meant “REED”…[Read more]

  • Hello discussion group. How do I confirm if I am a member of this group?

    • Hi Armida! I think since we can post, we are officially part of the group! But I am not sure how it works in terms of activity; I posted a question yesterday, but not sure if anyone can see it as there’s been no answer. I need to find out if this is sortable by just messages and message activity. So much to learn!

  • I\’m brand spanking new here – well, I guess everyone pretty much is. How do you friend someone?

    • Hi Lynette! That’s a good question! I know if you see someone here that you know, you can click on them, and then click “add friend” under their picture or icon, and a request will be sent to them to approve. But I don’t know if there is a search function for finding people you know! Maybe wiser heads will chime in.

    • Hi Lynette. Glad to be your EGA friend. I’m totally lost on this website. Haven’t learned my way around yet.

  • I have a question: I LOVE the line art images that appear on the new website. The stitching items? Pincushion, Awl, Scissors……so who designed those and are they copyrighted? I would love to do them in Redwork, but do I need permission to use them?

    • Hi Patty, I will check on that for you. They were created by someone on the team who worked on the site.

      • Thanks, Rand, I will be interested to hear! If they are on the EGA Website, they should belong to EGA, methinks. They might be a great free PDF of drawings for the free projects page that can be stitched in many techniques!

  • Okay, I’m here! *looks around* What are we supposed to talk about here? Food? The Oscars? Gossip? I’m personally hoping it’s EMBROIDERY! :0)
