1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / What is the name of this fabric? on: May 26, 2013 11:25:18 AM
I'm looking for some help on identifying the name of a specific type of fabric. I have done a lot of googling to no avail.

I have several skirts I want to replicate, and they all say 100% cotton, yet the fabric is so light and has such lovely drape it's not like the usual cotton I can get from my local fabric shops. It's not particularly sheer, and when it's used it seems to be in some sort of circle/half circle skirt, certainly one that uses a fair amount of fabric around. Could you suggest any fabrics that this could be, so I can go and buy some? Thanks!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Some kind of story book type swap on: September 27, 2009 10:52:12 AM
When I first saw the altered fairy tale swap I was all excited and thought it might involve re-writing a fairy tale and making a book for it. It didn't  Sad. So, I thought this could be an idea for a swap.

So I was thinking, we could write/alter a story (maybe fanfiction too depending on interest?) and craft a book for it with pictures/illistrations that type of thing. The book could be hand made or a bought one that we fill. We'd specify genre etc. so people with similar interests could be matched.

I'm finding it quite hard to get my idea across so if you have any ideas/questions, go for it. I'd organise, but may need a co-organiser depending on interest. What are your thoughts?
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / How long to wait for a package to arrive on: May 31, 2009 01:33:20 AM
Hi all,

I was wondering, how long would you suggest to wait for a package to arrive within the US? Being from the UK I'm not too sure how long it can take. The DC# has said the same thing for about two weeks now. What do people normally do? Should I just open a help desk ticket and see what the swap moderators think?
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Shoe/Boot laces on: May 15, 2009 11:41:19 AM
Does anyone have any idea what to do with old shoe or boot laces? They don't have the small plastic ends on (which is why they aren't being used anymore) but the rest of the lace is in perfect condition. Thanks for any help.

I need all you clever people's help.

I have a circle skirt, and I have a waistband to attach to said circle skirt. Sounds simple, really isn't. It's driving me mad.  Angry I've tried all sorts of things, and I just can't get the damn thing to work! So, how would you suggest I go about this? It's for a skirt for a swap, so quick help would be wonderfully appreciated!

10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Soap Nuts on: March 16, 2009 07:55:41 AM
I was wondering if anyone had ever used soap nuts? They can either be used alone, or made into a liquid soap, or many other things. They're actually the shell of a seed, and contain a natural soap. You can add fragrances and things to them apparently. I'm not a soap maker myself, but if anyone uses them in other ways apart from just putting them in the washing machine, I would love to hear them!
