1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help with making a softcover blank booklet. on: January 09, 2012 04:58:54 PM
Hello!

I have been stupidly struggling to make my own moleskine-like book for the last couple months. I use a single signature (14 pages of regular copy-weight) with a paper covered cardstock cover and either sew it from top to bottom or phamplet stich it. Then I glue a strip of paper backed book cloth to the spine and press. What always happens is that the book will NOT lie closed 100% flat. Because the structure is so simple I cannot figure out why this is happening.
I fold with the grain of the paper, I crease tightly, I try to make sure that my thread is thin enough, then I bang my head against the wall in irritation.

Help!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Make your own machine cabinet? on: March 10, 2009 10:25:07 AM
Hello!

I have an Elna, old school machine. I want to put it in a cabinet so I can have a nice smooth and flat work surface. Has anyone put a machine not designed for a cabinet in one? Or tweaked a table to hold a machine?

thanks!

3  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Lily table Loom? on: August 07, 2008 10:10:10 PM
Hello all!

Quite new here and hoping to find some experienced folks to help me out. I bought a Lily Loom (or at least s ome parts of one) at a thriftshop.) Ive found an image online of it but it's not threaded and is a bit unclear.

Anyone know where I can find more info on Lily Looms. (made in North Carolina)\

Thanks!

Anna
