My name is JD...
I'm the creator of the YouTube channel called "Tying It All Together". I've been generating a decorative knot video a week for over a year now and wanted to introduce myself and let the guild community know of my work.
In short, I'm creating new knots, based on the design and techniques associated with a handful of select decorative and functional knots. Although I occasionally show instructions how to tie existing knots (by request or interest). My primary goal is to promote the evolution of decorative knot work - raising it to the level of art, for arts sake, creating new knots as one might paint a new painting.
I call my style of knot work Fusion, on account I "fuse" or combine different knots and knot tying techniques to create new more elaborate decorative knots, never before seen.
If time and interest provides, please take the time to visit my YouTube Channel.
Look forward to exchanging ideas with the community,
JD of Tying It All Together (TIAT)
p.s. I'm currently working on a book of existing and newly created decorative knots, which should be available late next year (2010 - Green Candy Press Publishing).
