Chinese Knotting

Chinese knots are, in some ways, similar to Celtic knots. Each knot represents a particular traditional Chinese form, and in many cases are representative of Buddhist precepts like the continuation of life. Chinese knotted jewelry usually incorporates a main jade or stone centerpiece and jade, stone, coins or glass beads. The cord from the knots usually is extended upward to make a lanyard for a necklace, but with some bracelet styles the knot or knots are extended around the wrist with a macramé style knot. Chinese knotting was nearly lost as an art form. In recent years, several books teaching knotting techniques have been released. The cord used in making the knots is readily available at craft or fabric stores. Josephine Knot (Chinese Double Coin Knot) http://www.bridgat.com

What's the best way of protecting a large vinyl banner?

I have a very large banner which is a photo printed onto a thick plastic (vinyl??). It is autographed so I would like to preserve the banner and the signature. Is there any product I can use to help protect the surface and stop it from fading? I've e-mailed Krylon but apparently none of their products are suitable

Can someone help me, please? I want to make a 'logo' for home-made produce.?

Hi, thanks for looking in. Pretty much, I have never liked graphics packages, they are too complex for me. I make a variety of produce for a disability co-operative (free, not a penny is charged) The aim is to grow veg and fruit, process it and give it away, living on state benefits is tough in the UK. As I am disabled too, I feel more strongly for this cause. You will appreciate, half of the appreciation of food is the presentation, and that includes the  packaging. So I would like a logo, please, but I'm rubbish with graphics. Ideally I would like something like the shield from the Warner Bros logo with Tweetie Pie's Grandma character 'popping' out of it. I would like permanent writing on it that says "Granny Vera's" (my wife is Vera - and she is a Granny at just 40!) with a space underneath Granny Vera's to allow me to type in the produce. If you can help me I would be immensely grateful, and I am very easy to please. I can also draw a sketch of what I envisage to help you further so time is not wasted. Many thanks Kevin
