Hello lovelies, how has this week been treating you? Is everyone geared up for Magic? It’s that time of year again. I think if I am truly fortunate, I will never have to go again. Some people are invigorated by all the people-energy but it really drains me. I do well enough to handle the crowds at the grocery store.
Nothing much in the way of news to report -oh wait!- I finally made good on my threat to start a new pattern making forum. Specifically, it is an Optitex user’s group. If you have Optitex pattern making software or are considering purchasing it and want to know what its users think, do stop in. We only have three members so far (Ann V, Kerryn T and me), this being the first public announcement. Heck, I didn’t get the site up until late yesterday afternoon. It is open to the public but you’ll have to register to post. Also, the site is not officially affiliated with Optitex but I did tell them I was going to do it and they were fine with it. I suppose I should have warned them before I told you -which only proves why I should never be in charge of
mangling managing anything.
As ever, if you are trying to catch up on content, here are the entries published on this site over the past five years -with more in the archives. Have a great weekend.
