1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Faux Silkscreening on: July 01, 2006 09:39:46 AM
It seems I may be the only one bothered by this, but I feel the need to say something anyway.

I love silkscreening. I lurve it. Photo--emulsion or screen filler, I think it's a great craft.

I don't like the faux method (i.e. embroidery hoop, mod podge, etc.) I think that the main problem with it is that it SOUNDS a lot easier than doing more traditional silkscreening, especially emulsion, and the silkscreening board has become saturated with it. I think that Faux-printing definitely deserves its place on Craftster, but I think it should have it's own board alongside the stenciling and silkscreening boards. Call it Faux-Printing or Mod-Podge-Silkscreening or whatever. This way people who want to know about the faux method will have a place to look for it and people who only want the real thing will have a place to look for that too.

Anybody with me?

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Premade silkscreens... on: April 13, 2006 12:03:18 PM
Okay, I need an opinion on this idea. There's a lot of people out there who would be interested in screenprinting, but they feel intimidated by it. Just browse the screenprinting boards and you'll see I'm right. What if a service was offered where, for a nominal price, one could get one's designed burned into a silkscreen for them? Perhaps included would be some ink and a squeegee? How much would you pay for a service like this?

I was thinking about charging $40 or $50, which isn't too bad considering that the screens themselves with no designs go far about $25 at Pearl Art. I could easily include a squeegee and ink too and still make a pretty decent profit. Thoughts?

Found this site that talks about knitting cables without a cable needle:

I'm so excited to try!
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Men's Clothing and Patterns on: December 24, 2005 03:04:36 PM
Okay, I'm a boy. I sew, knit, crochet and silkscreen. Well, when I come on Craftster, I would like to be able to see any men's clothes that have been made. But when you search for it, it's mostly "Men's T-shirt reconned into cute skirt!!!" This is sucky for me. And I know I"m not alone.

Men's knitting, crochet and sewing patterns are so few compared to the women's stuff, and I need the inspiration. Make us poor crafty boys a category all of our own... Pweeeeease!
