NOBO Site Updates

Hi, fellow Nobonians,

This is just a note from your friendly webmaster.

I’ve been updating the software for the site and also upgraded the theme as well. I also gave it a nice woven-silk background. :)

The menu and menu hierarchy at the top is now easier to navigate and contains the complete page structure.

Over in the right hand column, we’ve got a clock and a calendar for easy reference.
Below that are the subscriber details and the regular site features.
Also of note is the Visitors page which shows a world map of of the visitors we’ve had to our site. It only shows the latest 1600+ recent visitors of the almost 105,000 (!!!) visitors we’ve had since the site was started just over three years ago.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post them here.

Happy weaving!

Demonstration Opportunity for Creative Haverhill

An email has been sent to David Z regarding our decision to be involved with Creative Haverhill next year rather than this year. However if anyone would like to demonstrate weaving this year at The Shop@90Wash, he is booking for Thursday evenings from 6-7:30pm in Nov and Dec.  If interested, you would need to contact David soon, via his email, as the schedule goes to press on Oct 17.

Guild Library

For the foreseeable future I will have the guild library in my house, therefore I am taking over for Betsy as one of the “Keepers of the Written Word”.  I want to reinstitute Joan B’s wonderful monthly book review – From the Dust Jacket with the hope it will increase circulation of this fabulous library of ours.  I am mindful of the fact it will now be offsite but I want to encourage everyone to enjoy the books we are so fortunate to own.  I plan to send on monthly reminders that I am more than happy to bring the books members would like to borrow. Just send me an email.  I will even bring a few books along to guild meetings that can be signed out on the spot!  Peg has done a terrific job of organizing our library.  It is overflowing with – fiber facts and textile trivia!  But there is no sense in having these books unless they are being used.
