Has anyone thought this over or had a discussion about the article relating to the direction and naming of the different eyes (http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.cgi?key=61550)?

Personally i think that the naming convention that femailler came up with is a good way to teach our craft.

Yep, as Femailler.com says at the bottom of the article, quite a bit of discussion took place on the boards before she submitted the article. Here's a link to that:

Thnx Lorraine. I was just wondering about it bc I was looking through the theory articles when I found it. I think it might be a good idea to start using the terminology as a teaching method.

I really like the idea of having terminology for eyes, and having it be common enough to be used as an effective teaching tool. Not every student learns the same way -- but to some, having written definitions for every minor detail is a huge help (and really, the type of eye you're going through makes or breaks a weave).

At the time that I wrote the article, the response was mostly just, 'if people like it, they'll use it' type thing.. more of an organic approach, instead of making 'official' terminology, which makes a lot of sense. So, if you like it, and it makes sense to you, then start using it. Coif Smiley If there's any confusion on it, you could always link to the article to explain it.

It doesn't matter to me whether or not people use it, I just found it incredibly helpful for myself and in the teaching that I've done, and I try to share useful information if I think it would help.

Let me know if you ever have any questions that I might be able to answer on the topic. I honestly haven't been keeping up with threads here lately as thoroughly as I'd like to, so feel free to PM me if I don't reply to something. Smile

Thanks! Coif Smiley The feedback I got from the discussion thread beforehand definitely helped to iron out some of the details.

This one is under Articles -> Weaves ->subheading Theory. Right now articles can only be placed under one area of the library, but remember...

3.0 WILL FIX EVERYTHING!!!!

... and then you will be able to find weave theory articles with ease. Right DL? Very Happy

Lorraine thank you for the reminder on where the theory articles are. I usually find them and promptly forget how to find them again.

And yes 3.0 WILL FIX EVERYTHING!!!

And with the improvements we have recently had as a basis we are going to have a rockin' site.
