4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / what is teardown stabilizer? on: June 04, 2007 04:37:05 AM
I saw a show talking about using teardown stabilizer when sew with chiffon.  What kind of material is the stabilizer?  Where can I get it?  Can I use it to sew silk fabric?  Do I pin it in the upper or lower face before I sew the edge with it?  Is there a substitute if I can not get it?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make the fold-in hem of a coat flat? on: January 12, 2007 08:17:03 AM
I need to shorten the coat I bought.  After I hemmed it by hand without showing any stitch on the right side, the thickness of the folded-in edge makes the front piece having a ditch along the bottom of the coat.  I steam ironed it and no use at all.  My stitches are not that tight.  But why it is not flat as I got from the store?
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / What is the paint for the lamp shade? on: December 30, 2006 09:28:55 AM
I have seen a beautiful lamp shade.  It is a plexiglas cylinder decorated with the dried leaves.  Then seal the surface with a kind of light brown stuff.  Does someone know what is the seal material?  And where can I get the plexiglas cylinder?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / how to sew the edges of handkerchief (scarf) on: July 07, 2006 05:29:54 PM
My mom is old fashion and she still uses handkerchief which I can not find them in any store.  If I make them myself, how do I sew the edges?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / so curly on the BO edge on: February 26, 2006 05:07:33 AM
I finished the scart and the bind-off edge is so curly.  What shold I do to avoid it without blocking it?
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / where to get the viscose yarns? on: January 30, 2006 05:39:31 PM
I am looking for viscose yarns.  Silky City only sale them for the retailers.  Does anyone know any on-line stores supplying them?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / rule of increase/decrease to make half ball/hump shape on: January 29, 2006 08:38:03 PM
I was wondering if there is a general rule of how to distribute the increases along rows then decreases to make a half ball or a hump when knitting.  For example if you have knitted a one inch wide and 20 inch length band, now you want to increase then decrease to form a nice hump which is 4 inch away from the two edges.  Maybe it is easy to discuss it in the number of stitches:  the band has 100 stitches in each row and 10 rows;  the hump is supposed to form  from the edges by 20 stitches.  The height of the hump is about 1 inch.  Do you start increase one at 11th and 89th stitches in row 11th,  then the 11th, 12 th, 93rd, 94th in row 12, and so on, so on?

I just need a concept of the way to do the increase and the decrease.
