Hello from Christine and Dianne… with much enthusiasm and a degree of anxiety, we are beginning this blog! We have talked about it for at least a year and have struggled through WordPress hurdles we never anticipated…finally Dianne’s daughter-in-law helped us out with some clear and concrete direction for the blog set-up, so here we are at The Braiding Post.
For a few years Christine and Dianne served as moderators for the Yahoo Braided Rugs Group. Increasing frustration with difficulties with the site (Dianne could only make her posts show up about half the time) made us explore new options for the braiding and hooking community. We’re not completely comfortable with the blog format just yet, however, so that we don’t LOSE our enthusiasm, we are jumping off into the blog abyss.
Here are our goals:
1. Share our love of braiding… and combining braiding with hooking.
2. By commenting on articles, the larger braiding community should be able to ask and answer questions of each other.
3. We are absolutely obsessed with braiding and hooking and need an outlet for talking about our obsession.
4. Although we haven’t developed all of our pages yet, we plan to have supply lists, a calendar, website links, and any other pages that will prove useful to the community.
Most of our posts will be in a “here’s what we’re working on” format.We’ll talk about the things that are going well with our braided and braid/hook pieces, and what we’re encountering difficulty with. We hope to include lots of photos for clarity.
Other posts will serve to directly answer questions that you raise in comments or emails.
So, here we are and we hope this works out. Check out our ‘about page’. Look forward to your comments.
Yours in Braiding,
Dianne and Christine
