FRAMERS ONLY

Post by Keith Hewitt » Sat 22 Dec, 2018 5:07 am

This is good. In fact very good :clap:

Some of you may not be aware of its existence

I have visited framers in 83 countries - no two are the same.

Thank you.
I've "submitted". Although I don't know if I'm the right calibre of framer, my being a self framer artist, who frames also for a local art school.
But it all sounds jolly and interesting.

Joined a bit ago, and while transatlantic trends and tastes are somewhat different to this side of the pond, I have found it most stimulating and informative. In fact, considering ours is a visual trade, might it be worth considering a similar set up for predominately British framers. Uploading to FB is so easy nowadays with smartphones and might create more "passing trade" than this site in its present form sometimes manages.

Here's a conversation from earlier in the year, that may be off interest.

I've joined! :D

It's OK up to a point but it seems mostly US orientated (or oriented. :lol: ).
If it's light-hearted social chit-chat - great fun. But today there were several "Where can I get?" posts to which any UK input would be irrelevant.
Facebook is essentially ephemeral and not angled toward serious discussions. Posts appear and a day or two later vanish off the bottom of the
page never to be seen again.

Not knocking, just saying don't expect too much. :roll:

I've had a good look and as a resource, it would probably be my last choice :(

I found it too busy as opposed to this uncomplicated forum but I'm sure others will enjoy it :D
