    Circle Journal #37 - “Fuzzy Felters” - Last Mail Date June 30, 2008

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Group #37 - Needle Felting Group (to include wet felting) - THIS GROUP IS FULL!!!!!!!!!!!
    The pages can be done either by a needle felting machine or by hand with a form pad and a felting needle.

    LINKS:Info link: http://blog.betzwhite.com/2006/08/ne…-new-tool.html

    __________________________________________________ _________________

    The Rules

    These are the steps taken after you sign up:

    Group leaders are responsible for the following:
    1) Keeping track of who sent what pages to whom
    2) Making sure members are regularly posting weekly on the thread, and if they are not, please let LisaB know
    4) Collect names/addresses/phone numbers for everyone in the group and redistribute the list to the entire group.
    5) Create a mailing order.

    Once the New Thread is started, the Group Leader will send out the list with contact information for all members so that we can contact you if necessary. The New Thread will be posted in this 1st Post and at the end of this thread.

    5) You are required to check in on this New Thread at least once a week to let us know how things are going. If you are going to be away from the ‘net’ or on vacation or whatever, please let us know in advance so that people aren’t worried about their spreads!

    6) If you do not post to your group thread or to a Group Leader for more than two (2) weeks, your membership in the Circle Journals will go on suspension. Your name will be taken off the rotation and pages will not be sent to you. NO EXCEPTIONS. We expect active participation on threads.

    7) Mail out dates: We will have mail out dates of every four weeks. This will allow us time for packages to arrive (up to 8 days on them sometimes) and will be easy for all of us to remember when to mail.

    Delivery Confirmation Numbers (for USA) on packages are no longer mandatory for page spreads, but if you do use them, post the # in the group thread.

    9) We mail our pages to each individual directly, This means that you will have mailing partners each month, each month to the next name down the list until the circle is complete. This will save postage costs and heartaches due to a whole journal getting lost. These will now be handled like “PICK A THEME” swaps. People list their “theme” and page spreads are done for each person in the group.

    For example:
    Group Leaders set up monthly partners:
    A & B - 1st Month
    C & D - 1st Month
    A & C - 2nd Month
    B & D - 2nd Month, etc.

    GROUP LEADERS: Maintain mailings to look like this:
    Person Apple — > (In Transit to Bingo)
    Person Bingo — > (In Transit to Clown)
    Person Clown –> (Received from whoever)

    - FABRIC GROUPS: Due to the time needed to make pages, fabric pages are ONE page, art on the front and the back is usually the place to add info about yourself.

    13) Because these are treated the same as Pick-A-Themes (PAT) each person that completes a spread is entitled to a TRADER RATING. Likewise, if a person does not fulfill their obligation to their partner a Negative Rating is posted if one partner sends and is received, but never received a spread from their partner.

    WE WILL START MAILINGS ON THE JAN. 30, 2008.

    I'm here, too. I am running a bit late in making my page for goatgoddess, but think I'll be able to get it finished by the middle of next week.
    This site is nice -- and it's good to have a 'home' again.

    All we need is for Carol to check in, and we will all be accounted for...that was pretty fast..homeless to this bright and cheery new home.

    I am struggling with my felting. I really want to use the machine to do what I think they call Nuno felting...non-wool fibers. I want to find a creative way to use my silk scraps. So, I appreciate any ideas and hope you will have patience with me as I experiment.

    Thankyou Carol. I'm glad it is in a home where it will be loved. That's the great thing about swapping with such a wonderful bunch. You don't mind letting precious things go to those who appreciate them. Val I did my bushfire page with scraps. Some of them felt well and some shred so it was a matter of finding out which did what and how to adjust the amount of 'bashing'

    Bashing is a great word to describe the "action". I've been working on one today, I am hoping it will pull together. I am trying to get everything done for the end of the month...which sure comes early this month!!

    I checked and it's not in this gallery(wanted another peek), if it is easy to do, could you upload it here?
