I think there is a limit to the number of messages one can archive before another folder is made to hold them. Do you see any other folders already created that you can click on? Otherwise I think you can add a folder to then store them in.

OK. I found this.
Premium Perk!
You can only save up to 1000 messages in this folder, but as a premium member you can create custom folders to save more!
I clicked on the "create custom folders" & I get:
Webpage Not Found

This is quite embarrassing, I must say, but I can't find the webpage you are looking for. Probably just misplaced it, but who knows? What should you do at this point? Well, you have a few options:

While you probably weren't looking for it, you just stumbled onto the 404: Letterbox Not Found clue at the bottom of this page. Perhaps that will lessen your disappointment in the Great Tortuga. ;o)
If you typed in a URL, check that it is typed in correctly.
Click the Back button to try another link.
Go to https://www.atlasquest.com/ and try to find links to where you want to go.
Perhaps it was just a fluke, and if you try again by clicking refresh, it'll pop right up!
If you followed a link that appears to be broken, contact the webmaster and give them a piece of your mind. (You should also tell them where the broken link is and where it's trying to link to, so it can be fixed!)
Maybe the link is delibrately broken, and it's a bad practical joke at your expense? No, that couldn't be right....

But like I said, I'm so sorry. Just call me an idiot, but I can't find that darned webpage anywhere!
So what do I need to do now?

Go to your main inbox page. Along the left you'll see buttons for Write, Inbox, etc. At the bottom are a few icons. Click on the first icon in the second row, Create New Folder, and see if that works.

So, last night I had a nightmare that someone else did the exact same event we are planning. Needless to say, I woke up very upset and in distress. I realize that we have not posted the event yet and while by this time of the year it normally is, it probably won't be posted until late February, assuming all goes well with a very serious situation. Sorry to be Facebook vague about it but it's upsetting to go into further details. Anyhoo, fingers crossed and hopes and prayers, all will be fine.

Just know that our event crew is very excited about this one! For those who are potentially interested, we are looking at the last weekend of September or the first weekend in October. I can never remember which. Lol!

You know, I remembered your post a few weeks ago as I saw it on the group. So that was one of the first thoughts to mind was that you were correct. =)

The URL should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out!

As others have noted, you probably filled up the folder that you were trying to store messages in, but you should be able to create more folders. You might also think about getting rid of old messages that you don't need anymore to clear out space in those folders.

I wanted to create an additional place for UK letterboxers to be able to share trips, share photos, share new stamps they are carving, ask advice and generally chat to other like-minded letterboxers in the UK.

I have created a Facebook page and would love to welcome new members who have an interest in contributing or simply enjoying what others have posted.

It is a closed group (in order to prevent our much loved hobby becoming too public) but can be found under the name “ UK Letterboxing”.

It would be great to see some new members. Please pass along to other letterboxers who you feel may benefit from this too!

Lauren :)

Like the subject says, I finally gave in and ordered Pfeil's L12/1. I follow a few linocutting artists and there are a lot of people who really like their stuff. I want the finest v gouge that I can possibly get - I've been working with Speedball, in fact, a Speedball linocut set I've borrowed from a friend, ages ago. I'm really excited to get it and try it out! What do you guys work with? I looked into flexcut too, but it sounds like their blades move a bit, which I don't want.

I carve a ton if linocuts and relief prints using pink. My number one gouge is still a speedball #1. To me, the only important thing is that they are well sharpened and honed regularly. I do have woodcutting tools and a miniaturized Staedtler too. I haven't tried Pfeil's.

I have a Flexcut and I love it. I use a variety of gouges depending but the Flex has become my go-to tool. No slipping for me. I wrote s write up here:

The links to the pics are broken but the photos can be found in the toolbox here:

I hope you post a review after you’ve had a chance to use the Pheil a bit!

Soup's On Seeks Carvers

This year my family is hosting our ninth annual Soup's On event in November. We invite boxers to the Western MA region for the day to box, then we have a potluck of crock pot soups for dinner and more boxing in the woods around our home. The theme this year is Autumn.

I am on the lookout for stamps if anyone would be willing to carve, or donate any unused stamps you may have. I can return the stamps or permanently plant them, whatever you like.

Here are some trackers for ideas:

Autumn Holidays
Autumn Scenes
Autumn Treasures

Thanks for considering.

I looked into flexcut too, but it sounds like their blades move a bit, which I don't want.

Either one will probably take some getting used to, as these lino cutters are designed to be held in the palm for applying enough force to cut lino or wood. Carving rubber doesn't require as much force, so some of us mount Speedball nibs in Speedball pen holders and hold them like a pen when carving.

I don't think the Flexcut moving will be a problem when cutting rubber. It might be an issue cutting wood, but it's such a quality product that I can't imagine it's a problem. It's more likely a feature!

IIRC, the Flexcut nib can be separated from its wooden handle -- which may be a plus for rubber carving. You could either devise a lighter handle or possibly carve with no handle at all.

If you need your new tool modified, I'm available. I have modified a couple of these things, but not many; I can appreciate that someone paying that kinda cash for a new tool isn't anxious to send it off to me to hack it up.
