Call for entries Pushing the Limits

Lala de Dios
 

Dear colleagues,

I am sending you the link to the call for entries for Pushing the Limits is a virtual shaft weaving art exhibition curated by Olivier Masson and myself. The exhibition will feature unique pieces handwoven on a multi-shaft loom The selected pieces will be shown in an online 3D exhibition engineered by Olivier from December 1, 2020 to December 1, 2021. Deadline for applications is November 15, 2020. 

The call for entries is open to shaft weavers all over the world and participation is free of charge. Our sim as curators is to highlight the creative potential of the shaft loom somewhat hidden lately by the boom of digital Jacquard weaving.  You can find the call for entries in this link https://oliviermasson.art/SWE/CallForEntries.pdf

I will be happy to answer any doubt or query.

Best wishes to all.

I did manage to get it working in a virtual XP machine on my Windows 10 64bit operating system.  If anyone is interested in how to do this, please send me a PM and I'll try to help.  Still fooling around with Linux.

It is surprising what people think about animals.  I worked with a woman who thought deer lived in families, and if a hunter killed the buck, the family was fatherless.  I have never heard the idea that you have to kill the animal to get fiber, but I live in a rural area with a lot of sheep and alpacas.

I've been fooling around with a virtual machine on my 64bit windows 10 machine, but so far I haven't been able to connect to the internet with it.  I'm also working on running a virtual machine in Linux.  I'll report back with my results, but nothing workable as yet.  Creating a virtual machine in either Windows or Linux isn't for everyone, so I'm hoping that Su's husband gets hold of the source and can modify it.  That would be the best result!

A couple of other points:

As far as I can tell, the Lace program does NOT run in compatability mode on my up-to-date Windows 10 64k operating system (I tried every way possible). 
I have the most recent version of Weavepoint, and I don't see any way to visualize lace.

Good for you, Pat.  Your taking your Natasha to spinning demonstrations is a brilliant way to begin to erase a bit of the incredible ignorance in our society.  What are schools teaching these days? 
Thank you, Kati, an old COWG mate.

From what I could gather, it is only illegal to sell or barter dog or cat hair or items made from dog or cat hair.  It is under their cruelty to animals statute.  Seems bizarre but when we spun and wove an animal hair sampler from various zoo animals for the Columbus Zoo, they quit showing it when people thought it was cruel to kill the animal to get the hair.  We got that question frequently at public spinning demonstrations.  That's why my Pyrenees, Natasha, frequently laid by my side at spinning demonstrations.  She loved being brushed and I would take the hair right from the brush and spin it.


Re: Wool or Hair?

Interesting article!

Spinning dog hair is illegal in New Jersey. I thought this might be an urban myth, but it is not.

The reason the law was enacted was for the reason Judy C mentioned.

Hi Ros……my  husband said he is willing to work on the Lace program, but he must have the source code to make the necessary changes.  So now he has to see if Judy still has the source code for this program.  If she does and is willing to let him “improve” it, I’ll let you know.

 

Best,

Treenway is now dyeing 60/2/2 Silk.  She is changing her 30/2 to 60/2/2.  I’m placing an order and I need to have 5 skeins of the same color if you are interested in going together on some.  4 week lead time.

Re: Silk/ramie yarn

Two plies of 60/2 yarn together to form a yarn quite like the size of a 30/2?  I am actually plying two 60/2 strands together for my current project because I don’t have any 30/2 in the right colorway.

Yes Su.  It was from your website I downloaded my version of the Lace-2011 software - but was a bit cautious to mention.  I would be very interested too if your husband can work the same magic and obtain the source code for the program.

My 'old' computers probably deserve to be placed in a museum.  No easy way to communicate with them.

That would be GREAT, Su!  I am not computer knowledgeable and would not try the things suggested to make the lace program work on Windows 10.  I do have an old laptop with the lace program on it and I use it occasionally with a jump drive, that laptop also has no internet/network.  I would use it more often if it were more convenient (on my main computer).  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for that!!

The lace program works well on Windows 8 and below…….

 

My website (www.subudesigns.com) hosts David Raup’s Swoosh Rug Design program.  It did not work on Windows 10 but my clever husband did some magic and now it works on windows 10 machines.  We did this upgrade with Judy Yamamoto’s blessing (David’s widow).  I don’t know what my husband did but I could ask him if he thinks he could do the same with the lace program, however we would need a copy of the code for the program.  This issue is definitely 32 bit vs. 64 bit. 

 

Husband set me up with a virtual machine on my PC so I can run even the first DOS versions of Fiberworks, and I can run David’s programs as well.  I love some of the older software…..never will understand why developers chop the most important stuff when they “improve” it.   I miss the ability to create my own threading units/blocks in PCW…..I still have it on my older software.

 

Anyway, if someone has the lace program with the original code, my husband can probably make it work on Win 10 but we would need Judy’s permission before moving forward.

 

Best,

Su Butler

Re: David Raup's Lace visualizer program #weaving

Google research found an article: Weaving Software on the Cheap   by Marg Coe (Weavezine 2009) that described the program & stated the software could be downloaded the WeavePoint page.  The link to the software is no longer on the page but WeavePont seems to have incorporated the lace viewing capability.

A Google search for "LACE-2011" found a more recent version of the software for free download.  There is no installer - one must only unzip a directory & double-click the .exe file.  The accompanying document states: "Works with Windows 2000, ME, Vista, and the 32-bit versions of XP and Windows 7. The 64-bit versions of XP and Win 7 may work with appropriate workarounds or emulators but these have not been tested fully)"

I tested it on my 64-bit Windows 10 PC and it would not execute.  I tested it on my 32-bit Windows 10 PC and it executed but generated an immediate fatal exception at an address in the included .DLL file (Visual Basic object code).  

This is a long-winded way of suggesting that the LACE-2011 software be used on a Windows 7 PC or that WeavePoint capabilities should be further explored or that one should consider (very politely) contacting the author.

I use thumb drives to transfer files from the machine that I do my design work  on and the laptops that run the looms.  I could use cloud, but there's no WiFi in the studio.
