    I used GIMP when I taught Computer Applications. I forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder.

    I downloaded the software but have yet to figure out how to draw a circle. I want to use it as my starting point for a design I have in mind. Please advise.

    Very professional presentation! Thank you SO much! I've often wanted to purchase EQ but couldn't afford it, so this will be a nice alternative!

    Thanks so much. I'm old and not really computer savvy but think I'll try this.

    Perhaps you all know this page but I found it very interesting. You can very easily design your pieces with this pattern maker from Victoria and Albert Museum:

    I just started this but I put my fabric on my scanner, scanned a copy of it and saved it to my computer to use with the gimp program.

    Gimp is an acronym for Gnu Image Manipulation Program. I believe it originated in Linux.
