22  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Mechinical vs. computerized on: July 08, 2006 01:55:48 PM
So rite now I'm looking at sewing machines and wondering to myself "how big of a difference is there in mechanical and  computerized machines?" Mainly I would be using it to make bags, dresses and skirts, would that warrant the use for a computerized?

Also right now I'm looking at mainly Vikings, Jenome and Kenmores. How good are these machines at sewing through multiple layers of fabric or things like denim/canvas?

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! Knitorama Hand Gernade on: May 05, 2006 10:01:33 AM

Top: RS facing miss the first 5 sts, pick up from 32nd row of gernade body next 30 sts (missing last 5 sts). Using B and starting with a knit row worked 6 rows st st (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) and dec at each end of every purl row

-Hunting (*shivers*)
-He's in the car a lot for his work
- He likes seeing movies in the theater

That's all I got. Any ideas? i really want this year to be personal and cute

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help me with my knitting circle! on: September 14, 2005 02:29:32 PM
I recently started a knitting circle at my high school and a lot of the people coming are just learning how to knit, so I was hoping to compile a list of any great pattern books or instructional websites. Of course I have things like knitty.com and stitch n bitch. So tell me what your favourites are and I will check them out
28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / An ode to pin pricks on: July 29, 2005 09:57:44 PM
All of you seamstresses out there know like I, that no matter what injuries you sustain in life EVERY SINGLE TIME you prick your finger with a needle, or pin it is some of the worst pain you have ever felt. It makes me feel like such a baby everytime I let out a gasp and my eyes start watering a little just because i stabbed myself with an itty bitty pin. Am I the only one who hasn't become immune to the sneak attack of the needle?
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Polka Dotted Skirt on: July 27, 2005 12:52:30 PM
I made this using Rickrackrubys Striped Skirt Tutorial. It was incredibly easy and I plan on dishing out a few more in various lengths before school starts *cringes*


30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Esque Skirt on: July 06, 2005 08:01:30 PM
So I'm sucker for anything vintage and usually make it to the fabric store long before I am able to go downtown where all the best stores are located. So I used the basic pattern of an older skirt and added a few touches of my own.

Close Up:

And it was all made on my 60 year old baby

The hemming didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, I oiled the machine so it began sewing much looser and made it harder to sew straight. Oh well! Let me know what you think.
