The New Projects Gallery is Now LIVE!
Yay! I can finally tick off another item on the lengthy to-do list for the website rebuild!
At long last, I've got the projects gallery all rebuilt and you can browse projects made with Lindee G Embroidery designs.
I had just finished the arduous task of creating the first gallery in Wordpress last January when the ENTIRE website crashed just a few weeks later.
Of course, the tech guys said that site was unrecoverable, and even if it had been, this platform didn't support the old gallery content so a migration was not possible.
I had to start completely over from scratch, rewriting everything and replacing every link. Definitely not my idea of fun!
The former Wordpress gallery was a much more robust system and just better all around than the gallery options I have on this platform.
I suspect this gallery is intended more for just viewing than for providing additional hyperlinked content. I may yet find a workaround for those missing features but that will have to wait.
About The Gallery
The gallery features projects using Lindee G Embroidery designs. You won't see images of collections or individual designs; those are all in the shop area.
If you've ever visited our booth at a sewing show, these are the same samples you can see in the booth. As you can tell by the photo for this blog post, our 20' booth is crammed full of samples and you'll quickly be hit with sensory overload trying to take it all in.
Plus, what you don't see in that photo are the outside walls that are also covered with even more samples!
While photos on the web can't take the place of browsing "live embroidery," if you can't visit us in person, the gallery is the next best place.
How The Gallery Works
The projects are organized by topic so you can easily view categories that interest you. Currently, the default selection is "All" and they're displayed in a "Last In First Shown" kind of order.
Want to see all the quilts? Or maybe just garments? How about in-the-hoop projects? Select their tabs.
Interested in my year-long embroidery training program and want to see the projects? Choose Echidna PIE.
Note: Note: If you have a smaller screen, the tabs will be listed in a pop-down "hamburger" menu.
Click a project thumbnail image to see more details and other images, if available. You'll also find direct links to the product in the shop as well as links to other related articles.
To exit out of the detail page, click the "X" in the upper right corner of the window.
Want To Be A Star?
Right now, except for a handful of projects created by friends and family, all the samples you see in there were made by me (in my free time - whatever that is!).
I know that some of you are way more creative than I am and I'd love to show off your projects too. To do that, I'll need a good clean hi-res photo with information similar to what you see for other projects.
If you have a little story to tell about your project, wonderful! Include that too!
For example, I've included a bit of info on how the project was made, what designs I used, and when it was made.
Only 1 Rule!
There is one rule: it can only contain Lindee G Embroidery designs.
Also, if all you did was produce the design identically to mine, it's unlikely to be used. For example, if you stitch the FSL pocket angels in white, they're not any different than mine. I want to be inspired too!
Right now there's no way to send a photo through the Contact form so just use that to send me info and I'll get back to you.
