Dorkariffic's partner disappeared! No communications, no pictures of what she sent, no nothing...

Here is a little bit about her:
"I am a geek of all trades.  Cheesy Tabletops RPGs (especially D&D), Chemistry, Math, Literature, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and Classic Video Games."

Any gaming enthusiast with a heart of gold?

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Participant disappearing on: July 16, 2009 04:54:50 PM
Hello, I am currently organising a swap, for which the send-by date was June the 15th.

I have to participants who have not gotten in touch with me for a long time. I sent them messages a few times and just emailed both (I had requested their email address in the questionnaire).

In the first case, it is the participant's first swap. She sent me a message a month ago saying that she would not have computer access for the next week and a half and would need more time to craft. I still have not hear from her.

In the second case, the participant got back to me three weeks ago saying that she was in the process of moving out, but that her package was done and ready to send. I have not heard from her and her partner has not given word that she has received. She has received recently negative feedback for another swap saying that she has not yet sent her package, even though the send-by date was over two weeks ago.

I had in mind to wait a few day and give both temporary negative feedback if they do not reply to my message or email. Is that fair? How long should I wait before calling for an angel? What if I do request an angel and suddenly they come back at me and tell me they have sent their package?  Huh

There has been a lot of enthusiasm for the "Sciencey" swaps and the various "geek-friendly" telly programmes swaps... so why not a Geek chic swap?

Come on, we all want a nice stencilled t-shirt with a big 'super Mario' mushroom on it or a Monty Python quote, a quirky necklace made of buttons, a scarf that spells something in binary, a fractal teddy bear, something to decorate your carrel at the university, a t-shirt with your field of studies written on it, or perhaps a XKCD pin! Think about the possibilities!  Grin

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Geek chic! on: April 03, 2009 07:02:04 PM
I have noticed a lot of enthusiasm for the "Sciencey" swaps and the various "geek-friendly" telly programmes swaps... so why not a Geek chic swap?

For those who would not know what Geek chic is, Wikipedia to the rescue! There you go : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_chic

I could not organise it by myself since I have little experience with the swapping process (though I would like to be co-organiser). So, what do you say? Anybody up for it?

Come on, we all want a nice stencilled t-shirt with a big 'super Mario' mushroom on it or a Monty Python quote, a quirky necklace made of buttons, a scarf that spells something in binary, a fractal teddy bear, something to decorate your carrel at the university, or perhaps a XKCD pin!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Circular Scarf: need help! on: November 23, 2008 12:26:38 PM
I am a relatively beginner knitter and I am looking to do a circular scarf like this one:

http://www.tendances-de-mode.com/dotclear/img6/img-434.jpg

How could such a scarf me done? It looks so light and airy... Is such a scarf simply done by knitting with huge needles very loosely, or is this a special stitch? Could somebody help me figure out a pattern?

I do not have circular needles unfortunately, so I will probably have to knit a long rectangle and sew it to make it round.

Thanks!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A tweed jacket and a tie! on: October 26, 2008 05:48:39 PM
I thrifted a very nice tweed jacket... whose former owner did not treat very well: she removed part of the tweed on the inside flap, probably to patch a hole in another garment (how ironic! To patch a hole by creating another!).

I felt rather silly wearing a jacket with a hole, even though it was hardly visible... so I repaired it with a man's silk tie that I had bought on sale for some reasons, but had never used. I made myself a pen pocket, with a little flap to make it cuter.

What do you think? Does it still look like a tie?

I will try taking better pictures tomorrow; my camera's batteries just died! I will add at least a full view of the jacket.

Before: notice the big ugly hole.



After!

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing by hand on: October 26, 2008 05:28:09 PM
Hey there!

I do not have access to a sewing machine, as I am off to graduate school, far away from home. Space was an issue when it was time for me to pack up my things, so I had to let go of my sewing machine.

Does anybody have any ideas as to what kind of project could be done without a sewing machine, with limited means? My imagination needs some help!

So far, I am doing little projects that needed doing (patching up jackets, hemming pants, repairing holes...), but I am looking for something a bit more challenging!
