        We had a great time. Janette was a wonderful teacher. Full of very useful tips, a stickler for detail and great at watching for little things to correct our technique. It was such a helpful class. I've been after Janette for a couple of years to teach me how to do intarsia better. This class hit the nail on the head!! I can't wait to go back next year!! She had a small lily piece that would be a great exercise in shaping. Thank you Janette!!!
        I'll post my finished class project when I get it done.

                Dotty,
                Is that a scrolled necklace???
                If so, I'd love to see it better........

                    Her necklace is beautiful! Sally - see if you can get Dotty to take a picture of it.

                      Hi Janette

                      Sounds like you had a great time together and even managed some scrolling amongst the gossip! A great photo of three cheery looking ladies-

                      PS Janette - I'm trying awfully hard not to make a misleading comment on the size of your ...... cat! Great design and very befitting for our own Catwoman!

                      I share Jim's views in that it would be very nice to have the opportunity to meet some of you folks in real life but i think I'd probably bring my own choice of beer.
                      Coors? Urgghhh!

                        Looks and sounds like everyone had a great time.
                        Jim_Mex I'd be bringing a good pints of Bitters.

                          Glad to hear you all had a great time. Janette has a great sense of humour and I've never had any doubt that she'd make a great teacher. I can't imagine a more fun place to spend a day than in her shop!

                            When Ya coming Lou? Should I keep the 2nd saw set up?

                            Jim - not too much gossip - they scrolled and I cracked the whip (no comment re the shirt! - but Sally can attest to the size of my cats-the REAL ones)

                                Just Wondering...

                                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.
