Reflecting on Boston Part 1

Ah summer, the season that never seems to last long enough. As it draws to a close I enjoy these last long days of sunshine with a bike ride around the lakes and reflect on my favorite moments from the year so far. As I peddle and gaze across the lake I can't help thinking back to my time in Boston for the annual SNAG conference, it's hard to believe that it was over three months ago! I know I'm not the only one that had a memorable experience, so I decided to talk to some fellow conference…See More

Joy Raskin replied to Jennifer Merchant's discussion Who's Coming With Me? in the group SNAG
"I feel SNAG changed so much over the last 2 decades, and seeing less metal and more non-metal materials being used, I felt SNAG didn't honor it's metalsmithing roots as much.   I just have never felt that I could be part of SNAG.…"

It was a class that is looking in-depth at how different artists employ color in their work. Deborah Lozier is the professor. Showing your work was a no-brainer. :-)

Hello Jennifer,

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through December 15, 2013.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! If your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please review the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, I will do my best to be of help.

I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor
