    Hello,

    I joined in today and wanted to say hello to everybody. I am especially interested in Turkish crafts. Lace (called oya in Turkish) and embroideries (called nakish in turkish) are wonderful in Turkey. A Turkish friend of mine makes patchworks and she uses a lot of needlework in her projects.

    If you have anything to share, especially about Turkish crafts, please keep in touch.

    Welcome to the board! Lots to learn and see hee, and some truly wonderful people. I don't know the first thing about anything Turkish (except taffy) but wish you the best of luck!

    fahrettin,

    Seems to be California Day here. I'm up in Trinity County and extend to you a "welcome aboard".

    I can't help with anything Turkish...my ancestors revolted against the Ottoman Turks and have nothing kind to say. But I leave all that in the old country, not here!

    I know nothing about turkish crafts, but I look forward to hearing more about them...

    Don't know anything about how they're made, but I do have some examples of Turkish craftwork - copper plates & vases (colored copper, black & white in intricate patterns), a tablecloth with patterns of deer & things on it, & a couple of hand forged flock guardian dog collars (with big spikes). I raise a breed of Turkish dog, so have collected some things like this. The tablecloth & one of the collars were a package deal along with a pup from Turkey, & the vases & dishes were Breed Specialty show prizes.
