  • Technical Question for Bob Or Shannon

    Bob and/or Shannon, today was another day that I spent time looking through magazines looking for patterns. You see, I had a copy of the pattern in stacks sorted by item, boxes, baskets, 3D, etc., but not all of the pieces that went to the pattern. As I was looking through the magazines, and found some patterns I forgot about but want to try so it wasn't a complete waste of time, I came up with an idea! When you print the patterns could you put the Issue# in the pattern piece? That way I would know (and others like me) to go to Issue #24 or #5 or whatever for the pattern? Just a thought to make a great magazine even greater!

        I'd be very much in favour of that too ... my pattern/magazine filing system is ... um ... well not really a system ... Anything that helps my tendency towards chaos would be welcome ....

            Well, I started with a great system, copying the index and filing it in a 3 ring binder, but somehow got behind on that. Luckily the pattern I was looking for had a picture in the index so I could find it easily instead of reading through each issue looking for it. By the way, it was the swan box in issue 14. I want to make it again to carry for my Mother's Day shows.

              I see they aren't responding to this. Do you think we've been put on the "back burner"?

                        Bob,
                        I like the idea the others have suggested! I don't remember which is first to go & which is second, but I turn 55 today & I can tell you what it is like when it all goes!

                          Has there been any decision made on this, Bob?

                            I always thought small pictures on the index page of every project would be a very helpful way for people to quickly find what they're looking for. Then, rather than having to flip through all the magazines, you could quickly just go to the one page of each magazine and find the one they're looking for more quickly.

                              Shannon hasn't gotten back to me on the patterns, Betty.

                              As far as a photo of all the projects in the magazine, we've talked about that in the past, and just can't make the Table of Contents look even half-way attractive using all the photos. We've tried several options, but our newsstand consultant puts the nix on it every time.

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                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.

                                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...
