Good Morning Brynn, I have the following problems: 1. the site will not accept my pass word no matter what I put in for a password. I have tried several all following the rules typed in red.  2. it says to read the underlined sentence and type in the word that appears in red three times but there is no underlined sentence. so I left that blank.  if I push the button at the bottom of the page the page reloads with the verify password box blank. 

Ok now I totally reloaded the registration page and it went through just fine, however I got a different sentence this time, it said what  color do you get if you if you mix this color (typed in Blue) with this color( typed in  red) success!

Tell me how far you got.  When you first register, you have to solve a question.  Then you should get a message telling you to look for the confirmation email.  Then you need to click the link in it.  And then you should be able to log in.   (It's all to keep the spammers out.)  Where did things start to go wrong?

If you're using the same username as here, it doesn't look like you've successfully registered yet.

Oh, I missed something.  You have to register a new username and password.  Even though I own and manage both, they are separate sites.  So your creds here won't work there.  I've thought about merging them, but....well, it's a long story.

Anyway, look for the link to register.

Help I hate to be such a pest but I can not get into inkscape community. It doesn't accept my user name and password from this site and it will not let me register even though I feel I followed all the instructions for registration. It keeps coming up with improper password even though I have changed the password 3 times to comply with the rules listed. It did let me see the thread as a guest. The rooster looks awesome.

I've heard from the author of the topic with the missing messages, and unfortunately, the images have been lost (no backups).  But he is just starting another project.  So you can follow that progress in this topic, and even contact him there.  So far, he just has the model photo and a line drawing, but as I said, you can follow.  https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php?topic=790.0

I don't know if ha1flosse can help with the traceback error, but it can't hurt to ask.  Also, he just told me about a new website he started:  http://www.haifashion.eu/

It's possible that extension will work on an older version of Inkscape.  Since Inkscape is free, and not super large, it's a fairly simple matter to install an older version.  Especially on Windows, where you can get the 7z versions.  (I think they might work because they will have older version of python.)

Since I keep having to chase down all these links for different people, I'm going work on consolidating all the info in one place.  I'll post it somewhere here too, when it's finished.  It sounds like I might end up learning there's currently nothing working really very well.  But we'll see.

Anyway, good luck!  If you can get something working, please show us the final result  :)

Wow Brynn thank-you for all the work you are putting into this! The flamingos thread looks to be really interesting. I do not (sadly) work in Python. Wish I did and I may try to learn. I used to do some coding for CNC machines which worked with gcodes. But that was quite a few years ago now. I have installed the embroidery extension from this website http://www.jonh.net/~jonh/inkscape-embroidery/ but when I try to run it i get a message that says: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "embroider.py", line 35, in <module>
    import shapely.geometry as shgeo
ImportError: No module named shapely.geometry

when I google shapely.geometry I have found these files https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Shapely    (none that say shapely.geometry exactly) but then I do not know how to install them as a module which I think I would also have to rename. But just putting them in the Extentions folder (which works for .py and .inx files does not work for this program call even if I rename them. I have looked at Jon Howell's code https://github.com/stesie/inkscape-embroidery/blob/master/embroider.py
but much of it looks to be dependent on shapely. If I change the call there I have no way to compile the programing back into python.

I am beginning to think I am in way over my head. I may be able to learn to write python but I am not sure it would be worth all the effort However I am willing to try to install shapely as a module if someone could give me direction. If that fails I guess I save my pennies until I can afford to purchase a program that will do what i want.

Here's another extension for embroidery:  https://github.com/stesie/inkscape-embroidery  All I know is that it works with Inkscape 0.48.3, and not with Ubuntu  12.04.  If you learn anything else about it, would you let me know, so I can update our info?

Did I just find the extension?  https://www.dropbox.com/s/zch6y16dz3rc0pd/svg2embrOffline.zip  Hhmmm....no, apparently not.  If it were an extension, it would contain both PY and INX file or files.  I don't see either. 

I'm thinking they must have decided to convert files for their visitors, rather than maintain extensions for Inkscape.

But hopefully you will learn more with all the other info I shared, especially the mailing list discussions.

Ok, the first thing I found in the research is this page:  http://svg2embr.wasbo.net/index.php  It looks like they don't make the extension available anymore, but rather convert your files that you upload.  It may not work at all, and it wouldn't do any good for me to test, because I wouldn't know an embroidery file if it bit me!

But if you try it, would you let me know what happens?  It will help me to update the info which the Inkscape project maintains about extensions.

And it looks like there's a forum here:  http://www.wasbo.net/svg2embr/phpBB3/  It doesn't look very active....but it's not exactly archaic either.

Still researching....

Ok, I found a comment in yet a 3rd forum, where he says he used the tutorials from the wasbo.net site, but he used the extension found on this site:  http://www.jonh.net/~jonh/inkscape-embroidery/.  I seem to have some vague recollection that the extensions which were on wasbo.net have been missing for quite a while.  But as I said,  I'll do some more research on that.

This other extension (jonh.net site) isn't a fully fledged embroidery program either.  But he does use it for part of the process.  Whenever I hear from him about the images, I ask him if it's ok for me to share his email address with you, if you like.
