  • I had an epiphany today.

    What is the difference between an Artist & a Crafter?

    Although this question has been ask many, many times, I have never seen an answer that satisfied me. Today while I was out in the shop working on my newest chess pattern, I got to thinking what a great artist Diana is to be able to design these patterns that I like so much, and boink there was the answer to that age old question.

    Diana, and all the other pattern designers are the artists who give me, the crafter, the tools to make beautiful things.

    Thanks

        Marsha, since you seem to be in tune with the cosmic flow here, can you tell me where I've put my pin vise? Oh, and my pattern scissors....and my garden trowel? I haven't seen that in a very long time.

          Marsha,
          I like to take an end-run around the artist/crafter question by thinking of myself as an artisan. Folks are less familiar with the term, but I like to think of it as sort of a crafty artist. (And yes, I did just do this to muddy the waters! I love your epiphany)

            Epiphany

            Epiphany is not a word we in West Virginia use often. Actually I've never used it because I don't know if I've ever had one. Is it painful Marsha??? LOL!!
            If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

              It can give you a bit of a jolt when it crashes into your brain and makes you stop and think. I personally love the word epiphany, it sounds so intelligent.
              Still laughing
              Have a great day

                        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                        That is...

                        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                        Now,...
