1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Making wire loops - picture added on: March 27, 2010 01:37:01 PM
I want to make several necklaces with beads and lengths of chain between.   I have these small wires with a loop on one end and a straight section for beads.  My question is, when you bend the end to make the other loop, how do you make it come out nice and round?  Mine seem to be wonky.
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Time to buy my first longarm machine - HELP!!! on: August 02, 2009 02:42:39 PM
After years of piecing and paying someone else to quilt it, I would like to get a quilting machine of my own.  I am thinking of starting with a used longarm machine, maybe 6K for the head and the frame, but I haven't a clue as to which brand (Gammill, Tin Lizzie, Juki, Janome, Grace, something else?), what size is best (better to have more room to roll the quilt? Is 8 inches enough or is 12 better?).   Are all frames created essentially equal, or is there a feature that I just should not buy without?  I have looked for hours on the web, and still have questions.  I may be able to see a demo at a quilt show next year, but I live in a rural area and there are no dealers anywhere close.   Anyone who currently owns one of these, I would appreciate knowing about your experience.  If you know of a website or blog discussing this that I can access without being a member of something let me know.  I have found two discussion forums but neither of them I can see as I don't actually own a machine yet.  I read the other posts, and understand that there are some awsome longarm quilters that post here, so looking for advice from your experience (or if you know someone that has or had one, and you have a story to tell, I'd like to see those too.)  Help, please.
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / What's your best recipe for oven fried chicken? on: May 08, 2009 01:17:28 PM
I need to find a better one than the bisquick one or the cornflakes/rice krispies/cereal one.  I know that parmesean cheese can help create a little crunch, but I have a hard time getting it to stick to the chicken.  What is your way to get crunchy chicken without frying?

Hi, I just joined.  I am into quilting, sewing, knitting, stamping, painting, and glue gun crafts.  Looking forward to reading some of the forums!  And I am in the process of cleaning out a bunch of sewing, quilting, stamping and craft books, see what I have to trade at Swaptree under the name Craftnut.  Right now I have 97 books listed mostly sewing and craft books.
