1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Rovel Watches? on: September 07, 2005 05:00:44 AM
Hi - I've seen rovel watches at flea markets and at various stores with fantastic bands. There may be other brands out there, not sure. The one I have has a great cheatah skin pattern band. I'm wondering if you can buy the watch bodies do different bands yourself. But I can't find a website or supplier for these watches. Anyone out there know of them or know what I am talking about?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Working with silver? on: May 09, 2005 11:51:19 AM
Hi - I've just become totally inspired by a few episodes on DIY Jewelry making. I'd love to learn the lost wax method of casting in silver. I understand you just create your piece out of wax and then send it to a caster. Anyone done this? If so, do you know of any resources to learn all this? And how do you find a foundry that will just cast one ring or one pendant?
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / One consignment shop, or many? on: April 13, 2005 03:53:06 PM
Hi - I'm relatively new to the board, so I apologize if I ask any stupid questions. I'm curious, for those of you who sell your goods in consignment stores (online or brick and mortar) do you stick to just one or spread your stuff through several. I've been looking at several different online stores and I see many of the same people selling their stuff on different ones. Is there a specific reason for this?
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Stupid question about interfacing? on: March 29, 2005 04:43:00 AM
Why does it have to be attached to the fabric? If you decide to go with the sew-in kind rather than fusible, why do people then get the spray stuff to stick it to the fabric? Why can't you just sew it to your fabric around the edges and go?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Interfacing that gets folds in it on: March 27, 2005 03:51:59 PM
Hi- I've tried making some larger size jordy bags and I'm using a heavier interfacing. But I have found the interfacing gets folds in it, through the course of making the bag. And it looks bad on the finished bag. Is anyone else having this problem? Anyone know a way to get this to stop?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Interfacing question on: March 21, 2005 04:55:14 AM
Hi all. I'm off to the fabric store today to buy some interfacing and I've read several posts on here about fusible and non fusible. Some people are getting puckering fabric with the fusible (iron-on, right?). Is this puckering just happening with cotton fabric or even heavy fabric? I've got two purses cut out and ready to start sewing but I'm not sure which to buy.

I'm using heavier upolstry fabric for both of mine. Advice would be greatly appreciated.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / magnetic closures? on: March 20, 2005 01:36:35 PM
Hi -

I am making my first bag and I'd like to use one of those magnetic closures. But I don't know where to get them. Does anyone know?
