1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Our science geeky wedding :) Lengthy Post on: November 06, 2010 06:01:53 AM
Hi Mary
Sorry for the delay in seeing your post. Anyone with questions can feel free to PM me with questions. Smiley
I dont know if I have anymore pictures of the centerpieces, but if I find some, Ill post them. Basically, it was a huge Erlenmeyer flask with some clear and white marbles (or those half marbles from the dollar store) in the bottom. We had a ribbon around the stem of the flask and my mother-in-law filled them with wildflowers that she grew all summer (including daisies, my favorite.) She placed the flask on some big round thin gauze from a craft store (it was in the wedding section) for a splash of color.
Also on the table were our test tube favors filled with M&Ms. It was my nieces favorite part our of wedding decor. She went from table to table doing shots of chocolate. Smiley
Our table numbers had one side with a scientist or a nurse, and the other side had a trivial pursuit card.
I may have pics of us putting those together. My mother-in-law was in charge of the actual centerpieces, since she has more of a decorative instinct.
The meteorite ring was made by a guy on etsy. I believe I linked him earlier, but if not, let me know. He did a fantastic job. In terms of price, I suppose it was a bit more expensive than the average grooms ring, but certainly not to the same level as MY wedding band. hehehe
Please feel free to PM me with questions and I will try my best to help.
Im glad you enjoyed the pics! Thank you!
Lindsey

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Buttonholes!!! :( on: August 15, 2010 11:24:52 AM
Didn't get any replies to this issue so I tried winging it...
Zigzag stitch set to 0.5 distance, 1.0 width, then back over with with a thicker satin stitch 0.3 distance, 2.5 width. Finish the ends w/ a large satin stitch 6.0 width...
I can't seem to predict where the sewing machine needle is going to fall or where it will go each time I change the setting.. so I'm having trouble leaving enough room in between the rows for the seam ripper... Sad 
Seriously, any advice is madly appreciated Smiley

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Buttonholes!!! :( on: August 13, 2010 05:40:30 PM
I'm trying to sew a buttonhole onto doubled felt and I'm having some trouble. The button hole has to be pretty large (larger than the buttonhole attachment can accommodate.) I'm not sure what settings to use since the automatic buttonhole maker is going to make the hole too small for the button (which is 33mm diameter, 5mm high i think?)

I watched youtube videos & they make it look sooooo easy... almost mocking me..

Any suggestions? 

I'm sewing on a Brother CS-6000i

Thanks!

#4 is for quilting. Not sure what it's called, but it goes in another foot and helps your lines be parallel to one another.
See this blog - it shows an older one, but it's the same concept:
