1  UNITED STATES / Idaho / New LYSs in Cd'A! on: May 16, 2006 07:36:50 PM
  Yes, that's right--there are not one, but two new yarn stores in Coeur d'Alene!  I was lamenting the loss of House of Needlecraft, and then...fabuloso!  The MIL tells me that Boucle's...a yarn store (on 4th street, a block N. of Sherman) is having an open house.  It's a beautiful store with yarns arranged by color and inspirations galore!  They will have a weekly "sit and knit" (aside:  Do people really have that big of a problem with the word BITCH?  It's not like they don't carry the books!) on Thursdays from 5-7 and are offering classes.  They also have a selection of rovings for spinners and will carry spinning wheels after they're up and going.
  So, I'm on my way to the open house, and what do I see on 3rd street, but a big yellow sign that says Harmony Yarn!  It's right next door to JoAnn's, so we stopped there for $1.99 patterns and I went over to check it out.  The inside is sunny yellow, and they were just having the carpet and sign installed.  They said the stock would be moved in this week, and when they were completely finished, the store would have a performance space and feature (local favorite) Doma coffee.
  Holy balls, it's almost more than we could wish for!  We're no longer a barren, yarnless wasteland!  Huzzah!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Painting a fiberglass......sousaphone! on: June 28, 2004 06:19:04 PM
So, my hubby and I bought a cheapo sousaphone (y'know, a tuba that you wear), and we're fixing it all up, giving it a custom paintjob, the works.  We've fixed the brassworks and valves, and now it's time for the fun part--painting!

On fiberglass...
...would I use a plastic-bonding primer and spray paint?  A plastic-bonding primer and regular spray paint?  Just regular spray paint?  Marine/automotive spray paint?

I don't want to use something that would eat away the fiberglass, nor something that would stop vibrations or deaden the sound.  And I want to do it soon--I can't wait to put killer flames on it and play it in the 4th o' July parade!!
