"The Braider"
« on: August 12, 2008, 09:54:04 AM »
Hi Folks!

I'm posting this on behalf of Europa Chang. Those at the AGM will recall Europa saying she was expecting a CD from New Zealand from A.G. Schaake? The CD holds approximately 60 copies of "The Braider", a quarterly publication for "the braiding artisan".

This has now arrived, and copies are available to IGKT members. Euroapa has asked me not to post her contact details here, as all members can get her details from the Membership Handbook.

For ?3 it looks like exceptional value, so if you are interested then please contact Europa.

Regards,

Phil

a CD holds 60 copies?  60 issues?  60 copies of the CD?

I have the CD so I had a look.
It is 60 editions.

The pages have been numbered on, the last page on the CD has the page number 1451.
(No guaranty for the total number of pages, just in indication of the size of the files.)

Yes,

The CD holds  60 copies of "The Braider" in pdf format. I have printed a test page from one of the issues, and it prints well (i.e. it does not appear to be in low resolution format simply for viewing on screen). Mind you, would you want to print them all out?

Regards,

An update ...

Europa asked me to tell you that the sale of the CD so far has raised 25 pounds for Cancer Research.

She's keeping accounts if anyone is interested.

A great CD, with profits going to a worthwhile charity - fantastic!!!!!

As soon as I get her mail address, I'm ordering a copy.

Since this is for Cancer research, if you get one, throw a few extra pfenning in, too!

Got mine in and I gotta say it's all it was cracked up to be and more!

I'm going to have to go back to math class to understand a lot of it, but it is an amazing collection!

Thanks, Europa!
