3  New York / New York: Central / CRAFT Supply Swap in Syracuse on: January 03, 2007 03:27:01 PM
Hey CNYers,
I have Radical Craft Night every Thursday at my store, highlyAtomic Vintage, in Syracuse.
Free, plus there will be snacks!

On Thursday February 8th we're having a special craft night event - our first craft supply swap.  No money involved, but probably plenty of snacks!  Bring any artsy crafty supplies you don't want any more, and trade for other stuff that others have brought.  Yarn, fabric, ephemera, found objects, paint, tools, whatever you have that you're done with. And bring a snack to share, too, if you want.

The only rule is that if no one takes your stuff, you have to take it back home with you!
It's from 7 to 9 pm.  It's on our website http://highlyatomic.com

Anyone interested?

oh - sorry - just saw your post. 

let's see ... there is a lovely age range ... we've had people from 16 to 50, with the most common denominator being that we're all freaks.  i'm 42 but tend to be childish, not child-like - there IS a difference!  We've had lots of knitters, but also our share of ... well, Mac making fake fur costumes for his zombie movies, L. making scary dolls, and last week Ed worked on a black net for go-go dancers to dance behind at his monthly dance party.  and then there was the night we had vodka and pomegranate juice ... 

hope that helps.  just show up once and see! we get new folks all the time.

hi - haven't been on craftster in a while, so i just saw your post. I own a vintage clothing and records store in syracuse, and we have Radical Craft Night here every Thursday from 7 til 9.  It's free, you can bring a snack to share if you feel like it.  It's just a bring-your-own-project thing, nothing structured.  We have a lot of fun, get a lot of different people, plus lots of strange regulars. Please join us!

Details and directions are on our site http://www.highlyatomic.com

so glad this post got revived.

i have a vintage clothing store in syracuse - where we are the proud hosts of
Radical Craft Night.  We eat, we laugh, and sometimes someone makes something.  anyone is welcome, we meet every Thursday.  the crafting levels vary from stressed out people coloring in their Hello Kitty coloring books up to handmade victorian tassels (but we think ed's a bit of an overachiever). 

details and directions on our site:  http://www.highlyatomic.com  CNYers join us!

shameless plug part:  along with vintage clothes and records, we also sell reconstructed clothes from 3 local artists.

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Machine Overlock? on: February 01, 2006 08:44:18 AM
You're welcome.  I'm guessing some other folks might tell you to sew for a while before you get a serger, but I don't care - it's incredible! I spent my last two days off serging, serging, and it's great - especially if you like to work off the grid without patterns and reconstruct things - it's sort of like carving and sewing at the same time, and it works very well for my rebellious I-hate-instructions brain.

Good luck and happy creating!

I just bought a serger!  I mean JUST!  I have just threaded it for the first time and serged for a few minutes and it's thrilling!  So I'm a beginner.  I think there is a difference between the overlock a sewing machine does and "true overlock" that you get from having more than one needle and more than 1 spool of thread... my serger can use up to 4 spools.  You'll definitely want to read more since I just barely know what I'm talking about.

One big difference, though, is that a serger trims the fabric as it sews - so it's sort of like carving and sewing at the same time!

I read lots of good articles online before I bought mine - here's a good basic one that was helpful: http://sewing.about.com/library/weekly/aa071798.htm
Good luck!
