1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    me being a dick..
    some of the check patterns are turned the wrong way in the photos
    mini-check
    window pane
    tattersall
    i think the hounds tooth as well

    it is nice that this young lady posted descriptions of designs.
    I doubt she knows much about the fabric construction.
    otherwise she would have noticed her photo error

    Very good list. I never knew the proper terminology for the "awning".

    Perhaps of use. (Taken from AAAC)

    Butcher stripe is perhaps also worth mentioning. It's somewhere between awning and Bengal in terms of each stripe's thickness.

    I assume then that the convention is that the darker stripe runs vertically and the lighter stripe runs horizontally.

    I've heard the term "bordered stripe" for the lower one. Shadows only fall in one direction.

    Bordered, whenever I've heard the term, almost always refers to something like Bengal width stripes with pinstripes edging each stripe, whereas shadows are the same width.

    YMMV of course
