ADMIN - donations accepted, but not required

Amy N
 

Hi all - several of you have generously offered to support the financial cost of the move from Yahoogroups to groups.io.

First of all, let me say thank you for the kind offers.  Just hearing that you wanted to support the continued survival of WeaveTech warms my heart.

Secondly, here's the current situation: in order to utilize the groups.io transfer service, I was required to upgrade the WeaveTech membership which cost $110 for the first year.  I don't believe we will need to maintain the Premium membership after this year unless we need the storage -- and it doesn't look like we are anywhere close.  I expect we'll be able to drop back to a free groups.io account at the end of the year.  If we end up needing to maintain the Premium membership in the future, I will address the subject with the group as a whole.

So, if you'd like to contribute a couple of dollars to offset the $110 I've paid, that would be appreciated.  But it is not required.

You can send money via PayPal (web@...) or Venmo (amyfibre).

Thank you all again for your patience.  I'm glad for all our sake's that the considerable wisdom in our archives has been preserved.

Amy Norris
Admin, WeaveTech

I also would be very willing to contribute to offset expenses.  Worth every penny!

Thank you Amy for your efforts to move the list.  I am particularly happy to see that the files and photos have been successfully transferred as there are some valuable references therin.

Having been involved in moving some other lists to groups.io I understand that it can incur some significant expense and time to do this.  If there were any way to help offset the expenses incurred I would like to help along those lines.

Hi thanks Amy for all the work. Just checking to see if it goes thru.


Re: Warping Wheel variation

No, it is the Warping Square. The Warping Wheel is an AVL product. It's important to differentiate the two, especially when it comes to asking for help with one. For a relevant example, many people will ask for help for their "warping wheels" when they are in fact talking about a warping reel/mill. This leads to wrong advice and confusion on the part of both the person wanting help and the person giving advice.

ADMIN - accessing WeaveTech

Amy N
 

Let me clarify:

You will all continue to receive your WeaveTech emails with the same settings that you had on Yahoogroups.

To email the list directly, please use the email address Sandra provided: weavetech@groups.io

To access your WeaveTech account on the web, you will need to log in to groups.io.
  • If you have a groups.io account from another list, just log in:  https://groups.io/register
  • If you don't, you can create one using the email address where you receive WeaveTech. 
WeaveTech will automatically appear.

As always, if you have any questions, please email me directly at amy@...

Thank you,
Amy Norris
Admin, WeaveTech

An acquaintance just bought a wheel with "Craig R. Rehbein, 1972" at a
thrift shop in San Rafael, Marin County, California.

It is a double drive, dark wood and spins beautifully.

Anyone know anything about these wheels or Craig Rehbein?

Thanks.

Great job Amy!  The picture from Sally looked great, in the body of the letter.  And I got into the io website to look at old photos easily and quickly!

Thanks for your leadership in this improvement.

Photo loading was easy! (Bamboo towel woven by Frances Irwin Handweaver Deb K.)

It's terrific to see all the image and file folders are intact, and the messaging format is not that different from before. 

Thank you to Amy for initiating the migration, and to all who have contributed content over nearly twenty years!


Another big thank you to Amy

I received my invitation to groups.io this morning. And it is all there,
intuitive, and looking good.

I'm sure doing the transfer was a great deal of work and a labor of love.

A big THANK YOU to Amy for doing such a great job and making this so easy
for the rest of us.
