1  CANADA / Atlantic Canada / Wood Working course at NSCCD? on: January 14, 2008 07:06:52 AM
Has anyone ever taken a wood-working course for women at the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design? If so, I'd love to ask you some questions.
2  CANADA / Atlantic Canada / Arts vs. Crafts: Thoughts? on: October 12, 2007 09:12:17 AM
Hey Haligonians (or anyone else who wants to put in their two cents)!

I'm a journalism student writing a lengthy piece about arts vs. crafts and the upcoming craft conference, NeoCraft, in November. I'm just doing some preliminary research and would love to talk to anyone who is a crafter and/or planning to go to this conference. I'm going to focus on the whole arts vs. crafts idea, why craft still isn't considered art to some, the history of craftwork and any other relevant topics.

We can have an informal chat; I just need to formulate some ideas and opinions about crafts in general. Anyone who has the time to help me out, please message me! It'll be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

3  CANADA / Northern Canada / Indie designers? on: April 17, 2007 08:52:00 PM
Hey crafters,

I'm writing an article on indie designers for the upcoming style issue of Broken Pencil Magazine (www.brokenpencil.com), so I'm looking to interview some designers based in Canada, particularly in smaller or less well-known areas such as up north. If anyone is interested in answering some questions for me and getting some exposure for their work, please message me.

Indie design doesn't have to be limited to fashion. Anything to do with style goes. The further away from fashion, the better, but I'm not too picky. If you're doing awesome stuff, let me know!

Cheers,
michelle.

6  CANADA / Ontario / LadyFest Toronto is looking for a web designer! on: April 08, 2007 08:39:17 PM
Ladyfest Toronto is looking for a creative, outgoing, web designer to create our website. The web designer will develop the website and provide the creative direction.

This is a terrific opportunity for anyone who is looking to build their portfolio as well as gain some valuable experience.

We are going to be providing a festival pass, but please keep in mind that we are a grass-roots, arts collective that have limited funding and strongly rely on fundraising initiatives. It is possible to get an honorarium at the end.

Send any questions and samples/links of your work to ladyfesttoronto@gmail.com by April 24th.

Thanks!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Wedding gift for friends who already live together?! on: January 10, 2007 10:30:52 AM
Hiya, I need some help brainstorming some ideas for wedding pressies. Friends of mine who have been going out for 8 years are getting married. They've already been living together for the last 3 years and just recently moved into a house. They really don't need utensils or any household items. They're getting married in May, so I have some time to make them a gift. I can sew and knit, but my mind is drawing a blank. I've got an afghan pattern as a back-up in case my brain still isn't working.

She's 25, he's 26, and they're both fairly traditional. They enjoy quirky things, but in small doses like fridge magnets instead of a big ol' kitschy dining table or something. Thanks!
8  CANADA / Ontario / Pay by the Pound in TO/Scarborough on: November 04, 2006 09:33:16 PM
Can anyone tell me if there is one? I moved here a few months ago, so I don't know if there is still one or if it closed. I was told the one downtown closed and the only one left is in Scarborough. I just spent a few hours yesterday going to Scarborough to try and find it. I don't know if I was just given unclear instructions, but the whole trip proved to be unsuccessful.

I've tried to find info on the net, but no such luck. If anyone can help me with some directions, that would be wonderful! Thanks.
9  CANADA / Ontario / Fave fabric stores in Toronto? on: September 11, 2006 07:48:17 PM
I just moved to Toronto, and I'm feeling mega-overwhelmed because there are just so many fabric stores. I don't even know where to begin to shop! Anyone have any favourites or recommendations as to where to pick up cheap fabric and notions? Thanks!

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stenciling on old granny fabric on: August 23, 2005 09:18:23 PM
I want to stencil a skirt of mine; unfortunately the tag washed away and I don't know what the material is made of...it is this old lady skirt with flowers. It's fairly thin and if I had to guess, I would say that it is polyester. The problem is, I did a trial stencil on a similar fabric and it bled all over the place and turned into one great big blob instead of the wiener dog it was supposed to be. It also soaked through quite heavily.

Is it possible that I just used too much paint/water or is it a problem with the fabric? Has anyone ever had any success with this kind of material? Help please!
