Since I started this forum I wanted a way to distinguish between forum members. This isn’t an effort to create a class system but to show others than I have trust and confidence in those who post regularly and offer advise to others. I have been very pleasantly surprised by many of the comments posted and advise offer by our members. More than once I have said to myself, “they’ve got this handled”, or “wow, was a fantastic first effort”. Right now there are three badges. Handcraft Tailor Golden Thimble Silver Needle Handcraft Tailor is awarded to someone who completes an exceptional garment, following the video series. Golden Thimble is awarded to someone who shows an extensive knowledge of the subject and gives good advise to others in the community. Silver Needle is awarded to someone who shows great technique, shares images of their work and seeks advise or feedback from their progress. All in all it’s a means to encourage all of you to share as much as you can with each other. If you share an images you can get feedback from me and other members which in turn will help to develop your skills further. Congratulations to everyone who has received a Badge so far, keep up the good work.
