    Bernice you are a genius at inventory systems. Have you thought about packaging it up and selling you ideas to other manufacturers?

    CIR 90 degree bend problem

    Hi all, I am currently working on creating a CIR 90 degree bend weave as per this tutorial http://cgmaille.com/tutorials/cir90deg.shtml and I am having lots of difficulites. Has anyone tried this and created the bend successfully? My problem is with the last step. I am using the same rings as per the tutorial (18swg 7/32" Titanium). I cannot get that ring to go around the 4 outer cage rings. The ring is just not large enough. I can try a larger ring but would that not weaken the tightnes of the bend? Thanks, Rene

    top medieval movies

    Nobody has mentioned The Last Samurai. I know.. Tom Cruise. However the samurai armour is pretty cool and the scenery in the movie is good.

    Thanks for the tip but I had something else in mind. More like these http://www.jencel.co.uk/beads/bookmarks.php As I mentioned, this may be a good addition to your stock.

    Bookmark findings?

    Does anyone know where one can find bookmark findings in Canada? Bernice, any thoughts of perhaps selling them through your site? I am beginning to see them more often at shows and would make a nice fit with chainmaille.

    With a bachelor's in theatre you would love Stratford Ontario. Home to the world famous Shakespeare Festival and is rich in heritage, music and arts.

    I live close by in Elmira so it would be fun to meet other maillers in the area.

    Looking for a new minivan

    So our current Chev Astro is on its last legs and we are looking for a replacement. I have three in mind. Dodge Grand Caravan, Kia Sedona and the Volkswagen Routan. Does anyone have any experiences with any of these? Thanks.
