4  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / dead artists guild - saturday art market - west philly on: September 29, 2004 03:18:49 PM
hey guys, i went to this last week and i think it has major potential, just needs more vendors and more promotion.  xo  j.



I'm writing to remind all of you that the Dead Artists
Guild Saturday Art Markets at 4014 Walnut Street in
West Philadelphia are right around the corner V the
Markets will begin NEXT Saturday, September 25, and
run every Saturday until November 27th.

The markets bring together a diverse group of artists
V everyone from oil painters to fabric crafters to
printmakers, bookmakers, woodworkers, zine producers,
sculptors, and more.  The Dead Artists Guild will
provide a series of gazebos outside at the Rotunda
(4014 Walnut Street), under which all participating
artists can set up their displays or tables.

Each Saturday Market is open to the public from
11AM-4PM, with live acoustic music from noon-4PM (a
list of the musicians is at the bottom of this email).
 The cost to participate is $10 per space per week
(multiple artists are welcome to share one 6-foot
space).  Well provide the gazebos, but you should
bring your own table or display Vsome tables are
available to rent from us at $10 per table, but we
need 2 weeks notice to reserve one for you.

If youre interested in participating, send me an
email with the dates you want to join us.
Participating artists should meet in front of the
Rotunda at 10AM on the day of the Market, all money
for participation will be collected on-site.  Since
all these events are outdoors, if we need to cancel
because of weather, we will notify anyone who has
contacted us by telephone on the morning of the
market, around 9AM.

If you have any questions, please email me at
danbiking@yahoo.com, or call me at (215) 879-3629.
Thanks to those of you who participated last time, and
we look forward to working with all of you over the
next ten weeks!

hey guys...
i'm looking for a little help...  i'm looking to move to philly august 1st, but i don't know anyone down there!  i am moving to attend a graduate course at philadelphia university... i am a 25 year old art school graduate, i'm veggie and have been for quite some time, but i am open to living in diverse households. biking is my main mode of transportation... i (heart) my bike. i don't smoke, i do sew and knit and craft. i also bake and cook, often. i clean up after myself because i am clean! i love animals and wouldn't mind living with them... if anyone knows of an open room or somebody looking for a roomie, i would really really appreciate it if you forwarded this along!  i'm also looking to join a knitting group and start crafting, i would really luv to meet new people and be a part of the community!
thanks!  j.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / baby's head measurements? on: May 05, 2004 10:14:30 AM
could anybody give me a newborn or 1 month old baby's head measurements?  i have a baby shower to go to and started a hat which i think is way way off... and i have no baby's to try the sucker out on... any helpful hints would be awesome... i'm sort of winging it because it's a last minute project and i luv experimenting anyway!!!  thanks guys!!!  (i will definitely post pics when it's done)
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / center pull balls... part 2? on: March 17, 2004 07:36:01 AM
*hey guys*

i had read about making a center pull ball with a toilet ball roll... but last night, i needed a ball, but alas, there was no toilet ball roll to be had... so i used my knitting needle, is this weird?  i wound the yarn in my fingers, back and forth 15 times, then slid it off and held it against the needle, then proceeded to wind.  it came out really good, and i could turn it as i went along and once i was finished and tucked in my loose end, it slid right off the needle and the bottom closed up.  i think i've found my new method!!!

has anybody else done this before or am i just wicked smart???

*hi guys...*  i live in boston and i am researching places to move come august (if i don't get into grad. school, aaaah!) and atlanta has been suggested to me many times.  i was wondering if anyone could tell me about the city and about the community (artistic, creative, etc. etc.) so i can have a better idea about the area.  i've never been down there, so i am clueless... mostly i am looking to save a little on rent because the rents up here are killing my paycheck.  also, i am looking for a bike-able community.  any info would help!  thanks!  j.
