Marcia - re. your question for New Directions catalog payment:
Those who have been accepted into the show should make their payment for the production of the catalog to Sam Cangelosi. Please make the payment through Pay Pal. When you sign onto Pay Pal you will enter his email address, firstname.lastname@example.org to make the payment to him. Just so we are clear and there is no misunderstanding, the $15 is to pay for the design cost of producing the catalog and does not go toward purchasing a catalog. When the catalog is completed we will announce where the catalog can be purchased. The way we have it set up is ALL proceeds from catalog sales go to the Craft Emergency Relief Fund. So from the very first catalog purchased, CERF is benefiting!
Not a dumb question :-) there is no protocol. You just start writing to people directly onto their page if it is more general in nature or underneath a posted image if it is related to that. Otherwise, everyone is invited to post/comment on every blog and every discussion. No introductions needed. You are a member here, which means you "belong". Go, have at it. :-))
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through March 15, 2012.
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 editor 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 (their peers,) 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 there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime, 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.
