11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / wondering about how you tote all your totes.....?! on: November 09, 2005 11:18:13 AM
Hi guys,

When I go to a shop to show them my wares for consignment, or whatever... whenever you have to bring several pieces with you- even to bring it all to a craft fair.... how do you go about transporting it all?

I'm always afraid my bags will get crushed or bent or something... as I no long am a car owner now that I'm living downtown.

How do you tote your totes?

12  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Finishing a Stich with your Sewing Machine....? on: November 06, 2005 05:08:58 PM
 So, guys, i have a question that I must admit, i feel a little embarrased about.

When you are stitching with your machine, and you come to the end of your line- what exactly do you do to reinforce or finish that section of stiching?
I have always just gone back and forth over my stiches a few times with the reverse feature on my machine. But I am concerned that I am missing some very obvious and 'cleaner' way to finish a line.

I've been sewing for a few years now, and I feel this is something I should already confidently know. However, when i was a little girl, my dad taught me the basics of my machine, and I learned everything by myself from there on. Which I'm sure has resulted in my learning to do things in my very own special way. (read: full of mistakes one technically should never be doing)... so I feel like there are possibly some very basic things I may never have picked up that everyone else may know about. How do you deal with this small but important problem?

Thanks for any input!

13  CANADA / Ontario / Downtown Toronto Crafty Mini-Collective? on: October 12, 2005 12:24:31 PM
Hi guys!

I've only just moved to toronto from montreal in august, but I have been crafting like a madman, probably because I don't know anyone here, yet. plus, i'm addicted.

I was wondering if there's anyone else who feels like I feel: the need to chat with other people about their craftiness, what they're working on, feedback, ideas, complaints, in *person* as opposed to just online (not that I don't HEART craftster!). I looked into the toronto church of craft, and nothing seems to be going on with that. I've posted on craigslist and not really gotten much response. I can't find any general groups of people who just want to talk shop, maybe even work on projects together... whatever the case may be. I'm studying at OCAD, but I spend more time on craftiness than on school, i hate to admit... it's a drug.

anyway, I'd love to put something together. crafty people working on projects, or talking shop, whatever you want! I like creative collaboration. Personally, my majors interests and areas of not-exactly-expertise are sewing (mainly bags) knitting (mainly scarves) beading (mainly necklaces). lately, it's just been the bags as my focus. but I like the works. wouldn't it be fun to get together and giggle it out? I'd be happy to open my apartment to a little get-together (bloor & christie), or we could just chose a cafe or something to go hang out in (but that can get pricey)...

maybe we can band together to make a craft sale happen somewhere, or something.

contact me if anyone's interested!
