What do you think the internet is good for? It is a meeting point of people as well as a source of information. There are people who are posting under their names directly but there are ones who are not willing to share their thoughts even under nicknames. And we also have several groups meeting on the web but organising real meetings in the real world as well.
I am also a member of a group, who are chatting on the Index forum on a daily basis about needlework – mainly quilts. This forum started in early 2000 and since then we have written more than 54000 comments. There is no day without any comment on this topic but I am also sure that there are several additional people following a topic without commenting on it.
And the reason why I' write about this forum is the following:
We organised an exhibition based on the quilts of the forum-members. The main work of the installation and organisation is thanks to Violini. Today we spent our morning in Szabó Ervin Liblórary in Burapest to put the quilts in their final place. There were 25 participants at this exhibition so we received a lot of quilts…
I hope the participants don’t mind me listing their names here.
Őszike, Borcsamama, Dixike12, Ildibea, Editsokadik,
Katafa, Katafolt, Évi36, Nana56, Titkos,
Pjulcsy, Ezkriszti, Gubike, Maple, Zsuzsuci,
Márta néni, Maria.Vargane, Lean, Mártamásé, Violini,
Lonci, Cicvarek, Komórka, Magda néni, Boszi99, Gabicza
(I found only the listed links, if anyone else has a link to share, please send it to me and I will correct the list.)
So we are (25 of us) - inside and outside of our country borders – able to say that we are members of a community and we are making memorable things. You can see how many places we come from on this map.
And at this point I would like to say thank you to Violini for the organisation of this event and of course for those ones who were participationg today at the establishment. Special thank you to those husbands who were taking care of our children during our hard work today.
