    3. Warp-Along

      The yarn that's wrapped from one end of a loom to the other to form the background of a weaving is called the warp. The way to warp a loom varies according to the type of loom being used. For some weavers, especially beginners, warping their loom can be an intimidating step. So we're going to warp our looms together!

      This is the place for sharing projects (links to patterns or instructions, or posts with your own instructions) and tutorials (links and actual tutorials themselves). If you have ever woven anything before, you have things to teach members who are less experienced. Don't be shy!

    1. NaNoWriMo Adventurists NaNoWriMo Starts Nov 1! Are you ready?!

      I'm never ready. Some nanowrimo writers are excited for midnight to hit tonight and start typing furiously, high on book expectations.

      Not me. I'm a leisurely get up, get coffee, think deep thoughts, more coffee and then start trying to get a daily word count of 1600-ish words to stay on schedule for 50,000 by the end of November.

      Does this resonate with you? Let's aim to be slightly more prepared to jump in to nanowrimo!

    7. NaNoWriMo Adventurists WE MADE IT!

      Last day of NANOWRIMO! Hopefully you got some words done, added to your outlines, fleshed out some characters and had some productive momentum to your novel. 

      For my part, I have my habit of 200 words a day that I managed to stick to and plan to keep moving on, I created a full outline and created some characters.

      Congratulations! You did it!

      There's still some time to add some words 😉

    • At one time or another, many of us experience a period of hardship during which we must cut many non-essential expenditures.

      And at one time or another, many of us experience a period during which we want to share of our ability to afford expenses that go beyond the essential.

      I'm working on setting up a scholarship program for our community, and I'd love your input as I work out the details.

      At this moment, I'm leaning toward establishing a bucket folks can contribute into in, say, $5 increments. This will comprise the scholarship fund.

      As needed, folks would then apply to the fund privately. Scholarships would be awarded as funds allow, and could be applied either to Supporting Membership or to workshops.

      Please hit reply and let me know what you think of this idea in general, and with your thoughts on details related to contributions and allocations.

      My goal here is to provide a boost to community members when they need it, and an opportunity for community members to support each other.

      What do you think?

    • Hi all. I sent this out to our Patreon members earlier today, and while I said in that note that I would be raising the topic in the forums today in a way that implied I'd write something different, I realize now that writing something different is silly, so I'm simply pasting the same message here.

      This is absolutely open for conversation, but it is not open, as will become clear when you get to the end, to arguments against the basic tenet that all people must enjoy the ability to live as they choose to live and not only to do so safely, but in a manner that enables them to thrive.
