Where in the world is Rebecca?

If you're in my online classes and you haven't heard from me in a few days, check below to see if I have a scheduled day off. Of course sometimes I do miss emails or questions in the courses, so if you know I'm around and I don't answer within a day or two, let me know!* If you're not a member of my online school, expect a much longer response time (or jump into an online class if you have questions about tapestry weaving!).

Remember that there are extensive FAQ pages on my website here: https://rebeccamezoff.com/faq
There is a menu on the left side of the page that links to various pages.

May 17-June 2: I will be taking a tapestry tour in France. I will monitor the course questions during this time and answer things that seem more concerning. In general however, I won’t be able to answer online questions or consultation questions during this time. Stay tuned to my Instagram page and blog for some fun updates on the historic and modern tapestries I’ll be seeing.

June 16-21: I will be teaching a retreat at CSU Mountain Campus. This facility has very limited internet access. I will check questions as I can, but don’t expect to get responses this week. There simply isn’t enough internet access way up on that mountain most of the time.

June 27-28: I will be off line these two days doing a high-altitude trail crew on the Colorado Trail. I’ll bring back some great photos!

Small Tapestry International 6: Beyond the Edge

I’m happy to announce that my tapestry, Displaced: Refugee Blanket has won the First Place Teitelbaum Award in this show. This show is the American Tapestry Alliance’s small format international juried biennial show. Show dates can be found on my exhibitions page.

I have posted some thoughts about the piece and where the imagery came from in two blog posts HERE and HERE.

Problems with comcast.net email addresses
If you use a Comcast email address and you're emailing me but aren't getting a response, I'm answering but you're not getting my email. There is a known problem between Comcast and Gmail and since all my email goes through Gmail accounts, I'm spending a lot of time replying to questions only to have you email me again with the same question a day later. I will only answer questions from a comcast account once... and I might send a test email before spending time typing a whole response. If you didn't get a reply to your inquiry, please check your spam filter, but in my experience, the emails just never reach you at all. If you use a comcast email address, please use an alternative email address to contact me if at all possible. Gmail is nice. 

December 2018: A kind student did some research into this Comcast situation because he uses a comcast.net email address and he found that my emails bounce because I include URLs to my website or anything else you might have asked about in the body or footer of the email. There is a way to keep Comcast from bouncing the email to spam.

  1. Go to the email server at Comcast.

  2. When you are at the email section click on the little gear in the upper right corner. This brings up a screen with settings.

  3. Click on Advanced Settings. On the right hand side of the screen you will see a bunch of settings. At the bottom is a check box called “Enable spam filtering”. Uncheck this box.

  4. It may look something like the screen shot below.

You can contact me reliably at THIS page on my website. If you choose not to disable the spam filter for Comcast, then please give me a non-Comcast email to respond do. If I notice you have a Comcast email and have no other option, I will strip all URLs out of the email which can make it difficult for me to answer your question!

Course questions are not affected.
