1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Button makers? on: August 05, 2013 02:05:19 AM
Hopefully I am posting in the right place. (If I am not I am sorry!)

Finally decided to start making buttons. I found one I like but am just not sure! I wanted to hear about some other experiences from button makers, who make their own buttons at conventions and such? I know you guys are out there! What model do you use? Do you think the one you have suits you best? What do you like about it or hate about it? What would you suggest for someone just getting into button making?

Thanks in advance!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Trying to find antron fleece! on: July 26, 2013 12:33:19 AM
I can't seem to find it anywhere. Looking to make a costume with antron fleece, but can't seem to find it ANYWHERE! Anyone know of any place with a good variety of colours and actually sells?
3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Questions, Felting kits? on: July 24, 2013 06:32:25 AM
So, it's been a few days as I have been researching about felting. I am finally up to buying one this week. I wanted to know where to buy the best supplies/kit?

I have three main craft stores in my area:
Ac moore
Michaels
Jo annes

I also have a fabric outlet and another mom and pop store in the area (but I think they are more canvas and clay).

Would any of those craft stores be a good place to stock up? I will be heading to Ac moore later today. (Since I have awesome coupons to buy stuff with!)

If I have to buy items separately rather than in a premade kit, what are the most important things to get?

Any information is much appreciated.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Leather and copic markers? on: July 22, 2013 08:18:34 PM
So, it's been awhile since I have been crafting and I just have this urge to make some leather items. I could not find much on how copic markers work with leather, although it does say that they can be used on leather. There are many uses copic markers can provide for me but I am hesitant because I have never really seen anyone use them. I can use them air brushing, or for fine details. It seems like a win win.. but I always like to research before I just dive into it. Any information would be wonderful!

Thank you,
Stakie
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Medieval-E crafts? on: March 27, 2012 09:28:07 PM
This might be silly but I plan on doing some arts and crafts for a LARP I participate in. The setting is medieval fantasy type. I was wondering if you nice people could help me find some crafts that I am not already doing? I am not looking for over elaborate crafts but something small and not overly costly. (Most of the crafts cost less and 5 dollars that I am making now.)


Quills, the old fashioned way. Cost efficient since I get my feathers free. I can dye them or even paint them if I wish!
Feather necklaces of all sorts. Sinew does not cost all too much and I am lucky enough to be able to get beads in the lower price range.
Leather book/cover. I'm not sure if I am good at anything leather but I am bound to find out. (Pun intended.)
Bone and shell wind chimes. A little harder to make but also pretty much free.
Egg sketching. Also not sure if I am ABLE to do this but I am sure going to try.

I was really wishing to do more crafts with the sea shells. So if you have any suggestions on things that would fit the time period PLEASE let me know. It would be much appreciated.
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Babylock BL6150 PRO LINE on: November 02, 2009 11:46:09 AM
Someone is selling this machine brand new [Though it's actually quite old]. The only information I have on it is that it has about 40 different stitches, one of them being a buttonhole.

Would anyone know about this machine a little more thoroughly?

I am looking for any information available on this machine. How many stitches does it have? What features does it come with? etc etc

Thanks much!
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / In the market for buying a machine. [Babylock] on: October 10, 2009 03:25:43 PM
That's right a new machine for my sewing needs. I am pretty set on getting a Grace. It has very good reviews, but if I was to get it.. I wouldn't want to take it out of my home. So I was thinking of getting a maria to travel with, but I don't want a new one.

So anyway, what i am asking is your thoughts on the grace? Is it worth my 500?

What are your thoughts on the Maria formally know as the Design pro?

Anybody know a good place to find good used babylocks online? I've been looking on some classifieds sites with no luck.
