OK, I'm convinced I want to join the lists.


How can I get on?

What do I need to learn first?

Is there a fee to subscribe?

First decide which list(s) you want to be on. That's entirely up to you. There's no qualifying exam or application process to restrict membership. You don't need to have any background as a twister or decorator to join any list or to take part in discussions. Most importantly, this is a free service. Balloon HQ does offer more advanced services for fees, and we do hope that everyone using it at any level chooses to support our efforts, but that's up to you. Use the free stuff for a while and determine for yourself if you wish to become a full member. (Note that members do get additional support. Some people have experienced problems using some email service providers to send email to BHQ mailing lists. A web interface exists for paying members.)

How to subscribe to the email reflector form of the list:
Send an email to with the word "subscribe" on the subject line to join the sculpting list.
 Send an email to with the word "subscribe" on the subject line to join the decorating list.
Note: You can also subscribe to either mailing list through the subscription web interface.
How to subscribe to the digest form of the list:
The easiest way to do this is through the subscription web interface.

Subscribing is handled by an automated emailing list manager (ecartis). You will be sent return notification that you subscribed, as the mini-FAQ list with answers.
