1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Re: What are the names of craft supply stores in Canada? on: June 24, 2008 07:25:19 PM
Hi!  What part of NB are you living in?

As for crafty-store chains there are a few Michaels in the province (Moncton and Saint John), and otherwise you may find what you are looking for at the local Singer store (some carry a pretty wide range of stock) or for material and all the things that go with it: Fabricville (http://www.fabricville.com/) (Moncton, Saint John, and Fredricton).  Otherwise there might be local stores in your area, they are usually hidden away, but if you ask around the community someone will know about them.

I hope this was helpful eventhough its a couple of months later.  Welcome to Canada!

I'm not a photography expert, but I love how you captured the pic right as the syrup was dropping!!

Thanks!  It took some time to get this one, I must have dozens or hundreds of shots that just missed the drop.

My family had been making maple syrup for as long as I can remember.  This is straight from the camera to your eyes without any editing.  Enjoy, I know I do!


and the fullsize if anyone is interested:

It is illegal:


...tho I doubt anyone will turn you in for doing it.

It absolutely is NOT illegal.  Have you never seen coin jewelry before?  Why, some of it is even offered by the Federal government.


If you are in the US or UK it isn't illegal, if you are in Canada it is.  I have no idea about other countries, however for personal use (as in you're not going to be selling this) I'm sure it won't be an issue.

I really really like this piece.  It reminds me of sea sponges, the one with all the fingers:

I didn't think sausages at all, but then again I'm studying marine biology Smiley

Here's a link to dog tags I made with soda cans (they were done the same way)  There's a tutorial on page 3 of this link

Sometimes I'm a little OCD when it comes to finding information on the internet:

I did some looking and came up with: (in reference to coin elongation)
Is it legal?
We get this one all the time... Here's the official answer: YES...and No.

United States (YES): The United States Codes under Title 18, Chapter 17, and Section 331, "prohibits the mutilation, diminution and falsification of United States coinage." However, it has been the opinion of some individual officers at the Treasury Department, though without any indication of approval, the foregoing statute does not prohibit the mutiliation of coins if done without fraudulent intent or if the mutilated coins are not used fraudulently.

United Kingdom (YES): It is also legal to elongate coins in the UK for the same reasons at it is legal in the US. A common misconception is that it is illegal to elongate the coin because it defaces the image of the queen, however, we have been assured by a collector in the UK that it is not against the law to flatten the Queen's head... so long as it is on a penny.

Canada (NO): Section 11(1) of the Currency Act states that "no person shall, except in accordance with a licence granted by the Minister [Minister of Finance], melt down, break up or use otherwise than as currency any coin that is current and legal tender in Canada." Furthermore, Section 456 of the Criminal Code of Canada makes it a criminal offence to deface circulation coins: "Every one who: (a)defaces a current coin, or (b)utters a current coin that has been defaced, is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction." The offence is not dependent on fraudulent intent.

i know in the united states it is against the law,
but we have those coin pressing machines at all the tourist locations

All the coin pressing machines I have seen here in Canada (ok, that's a whopping 2, one of which was in Cavendish PEI) the directions state that you: Insert a loonie (1$ coin) and an American penny.  All the images in the directions certainly showed American and no Canadian pennies being smooshed.

I agree with Linda!  I'd like to give the pendant a try if you don't mind letting us know how you made it.
