Saturday August 5th 7PM
A Socio-Anthropological History of Frames and Framing


In the 27,000 known years of creating artworks, man has only been concertedly framing for about the last 600. Baer Charlton, BA, CPF, MPF examines the social and political pressures that influenced and inspired the creation and changes in picture framing. From the icon inception, through the “periods” and “schools”, and up to modern times, Baer examines the most pronounced forms of European and American framing that still influence what we sell today in our frame shops. Understanding where today’s designs and frames come from, aid in the matching and selling of frame jobs for today and tomorrow.


Sunday August 6th 10:00 AM


Fabric Wrapping 101™ Class



One of the most powerful enhancements you can make to the framing you offer your customers and your bottom line, is hand wrapped fabric mats and liners.

This hands-on class will train you to wrap single and multiple mats, seamless and mitered liners. Each student will complete or participate in completing, an 11x14 deep-bevel single mat, an embossed mat, and an upholstered mitered corner liner leg.

Baer Charlton will cover preservation considerations, testing for acid, archival techniques and most importantly when and how to sell fabric. He will cover the fundamental dynamics of retail pricing to sell, sourcing materials and increasing your profits.

His DVD as well as very special pricing on starter kits will be available for purchase.



Class sponsored by Frank’s Fabric for Framers.

After class there will be a BB-Q and for those interested we will be going to the Saratoga Racecourse for the races.

All bookings went smoothly - hotel, flight via KLM... then I had to make enquiries at my local train station. I have not travelled by train for about 15 years.

I know that ticket prices can vary for round trips (we call them 'returns') depending on how long between outward and inward journey and how long in advance they are booked.

So - called in at ye olde village station and said "I'm enquiring about a 7 day return"

"Where to?" asked the ticket guy

"DUH - Back here" I said
 
My husband and I will be there. We're tons o' fun... and interesting too. *laughing smiley here*

You yanking our chain, Paul? I thought you were coming too. :D
 
I was going to drive up on Sunday. You've added a class. Should I come on Saturday? What time does that class start? What are you planning to do besides the classes? I'm not taking the classes (not a framer anymore, remember), just want to socialize. I'm trying to decide if Sat. would be better than Sun.

Of course I am attending Ruth, I was the first one who confirmed!
 
Are we going to have time for class, fun AND socializing, too.

Maybe we should have a week long convention next year!!
 
......the bouncy bounce will be set up in the backyard starting Saturday afternoon...right next to Edie's tent
 
Should I ask what a bouncybounce is...? Nah. Wait, is that where the Chinese acrobats warm-up?

Marty and I will be there but don't expect nuthin' from us cuz we're deadly dull.

Why not John, it's only an "inch" away on the right map....

But I'm not sure that Greyhound runs early enough in the morning and returns that late. Steph?
 
Jean Francois Blondin was the first man to tightrope over Niagra, then he did it with his manager on his back, then with his son in a wheelbarrow.

That son (Henry or 'Harry') lived with my wife's grandparents in London for 40 years, practically brought up my Mother-in-Law, who is now 88.

We knew nothing of Harry's family, bar that he had children.

Pat found the lot, some had lost touch with later family members than Harry - we're talking Harry's grandchildren lost their parents. One came over from Seattle to see Pat's Mum, another from S Africa.......... Gonna start a new topic.

Anyway - Niagra of special interest.
 
Now John, we do want you to visit Niagara Falls and have a great time.

But please, do refrain from emulating a certain remote member of your extended family....the framing world and The Grumble need you!
 
John maybe this can help... I think Mar figured 5 hours but they don't stop like Greyhound.

Think the bus from Leeds to Dover.
 
Thanks Baer,

Been doing some googling.

Greyhound - between 9 & 14 hours - two transfers.

Train - 6 hours

Hire car ? hours but unfamiliar with your roads & jetlagged too.

Air - 1 hr 20 mins.

To do list ....

Get medical insurance
Get adaptor thingys so I can recharge my cellphone and cameras.

Get more memory cards for digi camera.

Get American/English phrasebook. You say 'chips' we say 'crisps'. You say 'Fries' we say 'chips'

Not that I'll be eating anything like that of course. (You are all vegan teetotallers like me, yes?)
 
John,
Niagara Falls is one of my all time favorites places. It is well worth the trip. You will have to get clear across the state and back; it would make for a very long day, but you could do it if you get the timing right. Greyhound travels slowly, too. If the train would work, that would be a very nice way to travel.
It will be VERY CROWDED at Niagara this time of year, so be aware.
When do you return? Marty and I will be driving somewhat near Niagara (through Buffalo) on our way back late Sunday. Could we work out something there?
Or email Mar (framar) to see if she has any suggestions...

edie
 
Thanks Edie,

Mar has been in touch - I may only have to worry about getting back.


I thought I'd fly but I bet the train ride would be quite an experience.

Gonna book that whirpool boat in advance!

Returning to UK on the 10th.

John the arewenearlythereyet Robot
 
One of my favorite books is Queen of the Mist, about a woman who went over the falls in a barrel....easy read on a train ride.


You are all vegan teetotallers like me, yes?.....OMG give a girl some warning!!!!!! and here I was going to slaughter the family cow for the big event.


Ummm Baer an inch on the map!!!!!!just for thatyour in charge of setting p the bouncy bounce!

Apologies for misspelling Niagara.
John:

Niagara Falls used to be a major destination for honeymooners (I am sure it still is for many).

But since the introduction (and the wide spread use) of Viagra, many people refer to them now as: Viagra Falls....

WHOA! Wait just a darn second here! First, we can't peep at Edie and Newbie even if they are on the Bouncy Bounce at 3AM, next we just went VeEgun . . . and now we have to wear SWIMSUITS?!?! :eek:

I'm staying home... If I put on a speedo... we're gonna have 20 blind framers, 14 houses with blown out windows, 4 pregnant cats in labor, air raid sirens, and three men on camel back riding up the street.
