i kinda started this thread and abanded it so... anyone have any craft-like events happening? i live in columbus where there is a lack of creative types except for my friends. I love Bloomington so if there are any events there i'd be willing.....

Bloomington here again. Not sure what is going on currently, but I'll drop a line here if we end up crafting at the Runcible Spoon again soon.

It also is not being updated regularly, but there are some great ideas for sprucing things up!

Tuesday nights at the Runcible Spoon on Sixth seem to be where it's at. Well, at least for me and a few others.

We'll try to get the big table if anyone wants to join! Probably 8 or 8:30 would be fine.

I'd love to come out; however, I can't this Tuesday.  Crafting next week?

I don't know about this week as it's Turkey Week and many folks will be out of town, but next week for sure!

When making fake dreads it's absolutely essential to use Kanekalon type fake-hair!
You *might* get lucky with other types, but chances are slim, as "KK" is the only hair that "melts" together good enough for the dreads to stick together.


Actually, I have been making dreads for over a year and a half, and for me, I don't think the KK works as well as the cheap synthetic braid. I am probably the ONLY person who believes this, but I also iron my dreads rather than steam or hairdry them. I like smooth, melted, skinny dreads, so the reaction of synthetic to my iron is perfect. If you're looking for a more natural, hairy finish, Scarab is right: KK is better for you.

Some recent projects for me, just so this isn't text only:



Double ended synthetic dreads in flamingo pink and lime, made from the synthetic.



And a single black and flamingo pink fall with swirls made for Rachel of Agent-Designs corsetry.

I have been meeting irregularly to work on crafts with friends at the Runcible Spoon. Sometimes there's knitting, but I do cross-stitch and a friend has been working on gromit tape clothing there too.

I'd be willing to start a regular evening there, say Tuesdays? It's a great atmosphere with tasty drinks/eats.

Also, I occasionally have art parties on Friday nights at my abode. Sometimes we have a theme and sometimes people just bring whatever they are working on. It's nice to be productive in a group!

an option for really light, bouncy synthetic dreads is to use a core of bubble wrap or closed-cell foam (like tiny pool noodles). all the trapped air makes for a lot of volume without weight. they can end up pretty straight, but that can be useful.

Ooh, where do you get the mini-noodles? That's the one type of accessory I haven't been able to find around here. And you'll have to explain how you do the bubble wrap dreads. Do you just wrap synth hair around the bubble plastic and steam? Or what?

Do tell! Smiley

Beautiful! And marketable!

I hope so. I am quite in need of money currently and I have two pounds of felted wool here on my floor.  Roll Eyes Cheesy

Wow those are awsome! I love the belly dance site also I belly dance and am looking to start a group where I live. Do you  make long dreads also like the other girl had on?

I do make long dreads like hers out of synthetic hair. I put up a post about it a bit ago, if you search.
