1  Oregon / Oregon: Southwest / Knitting and/or Crochet classes on: October 09, 2011 07:45:36 PM
Hi everyone,

I used to live in Medford for a while, then to NYC, now I'm back in Gold Hill. I tried learning how to knit and crochet by myself, but it hasn't fared well with me. My grandmother has been telling me that possibly through the Jackson County parks that there are classes offered for knitting and crocheting. I know that a lot of the yarn/craft stores offer it, but I was trying to find out about the Jackson County classes if there are any for knitting and/or crocheting.

If anyone has any information, thanks in advance! I went through the site but either I missed it or there is nothing on there about it.  Huh
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Baro't Saya on: May 09, 2011 10:03:31 AM
I hope I posted this in the right section  Huh

I'm thinking of making my own baro't saya, either just for special events or even for my wedding, mainly because I really don't like how pina feels, so I want to make it using more comfortable fabrics.

The thing is, I have been having the hardest time trying to find a pattern for it, and am not the greatest at navigating through existing patterns and figuring out what would work.

I appreciate any help from you guys Cheesy
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Engaged and now planning a red/black wedding of nerdy goodness!! on: April 02, 2011 11:52:20 PM
Hi everyone! I don't post here super often, I'm more of lurker on Craftster.

My boyfriend proposed to me on February 26 after going out for almost a year. He got me this awesome ring, and was cool enough to listen to my qualms about not wanting an expensive one (I really don't like costly things, they bother me).

We are really trying to aim for May of next year, but it all depends on if we can get the money. I'm not trying to blow a whole bunch on it, because again I just don't like expensive things. If financially we can't bear it next year, we're going to aim for the year after.

The theme we wanted for our wedding is something that reflects us, but also those we grew up with/raised us. We both come from nerdy backgrounds, he is a complete gamer (along with all his friends) and I'm a comic book nerd. We both dabble in the other's hobby, so it's not like two completely different worlds. But this is why we settled on a video game/comic book/general nerdy theme for the wedding.

I'm mainly doing all the planning for the wedding (getting my fiance's input here and there) the fiance is planning the honeymoon. We also agreed on it being red and black.

I'll be crafting a majority of it, but for now, inspiration pictures!

I got all my stuff down Grin



The fiance wanted to wear something like this:

Except instead of a jacket, he'd wear a vest. Also, red converses Cheesy

His groomsmen will be dressed in something similar to:

I'd prefer if my bridesmaids wear whatever dress they'd like, so long as it's about knee length and red. (I really like how it looks when bridesmaids wear different dresses)

I've got some decorations and what not lined up to make after I finish my portfolio review at the end of the month, so I'll be making sure to update this with my progress!

I hope you'll all like it Smiley
