What's in a Name?

Well, a lot. Don't they make you want to have a peek or join the fun?

So this exchange/challenge in lieu of SSVE this year still hasn't got a name yet, and we now have exactly two months until your commitment emails are due. It's my mistake I called it an "exchange" but it's not; you get to keep it, or sell it or give it away, so it's more a "challenge". I'm happy to tell you I already have two commitments other than mine!

Names which have come my way, chronologically, have been:

From Pix/Pics to Picks
Creative Weavers Challenge
Weavers Creative Exchange
Inspiration By Mail
Weaving ExtrA Via Envelope
Weaving Excellence And Via Envelope
Woven Exhibit Arrives Via Envelope
Weavers Embellish A Volatile Expression
Woven Embellishments Attract Vixen Emotions
Wilted Explanation Aims Very Eccentric
You Inspire Me
Expected the Unexpected (I know this is a bit old, but I do like it...)
Exchange in Lieu of SSVE - E(I)L(O)S (I hope not!!)

Anything else? I thought I'd like to put it to a vote, but before I make a poll, I'd like to hear from you if you have more, or a particularly strong opinion on one or another, or our general direction.

Thank you!


  1. I like "Inspiration by Mail" best. "Pics to Picks" is good, but I think of the abreviations pics or pix as referring exclusively to photographs.

  2. OKaaay. As a former employee of the company with the same acronym, I feel a bit strange - like the name is all navy blue and gray pin stripe - but I think it's what's going to happen, isn't it, Trapunto! I'm warming to it; is that the expression???

  3. Pics to Picks is my fav.

  4. Right-O, Seatle, duly noted.

  5. How about A Muse Me or some variation of the combination of letters.

  6. Now that's a nice one! That would have to go into the pool!!!
