1  Arizona / Arizona: Central / October 28th Meetup - Tempe on: October 15, 2006 03:36:42 PM
I'm going to suggest we meet at Gracie's between 10 and 1030, and from there we can walk to SAS and after that it will be time for lunch across the street at Haji Baba's. From there we can plan further crafty expeditions if desired. What say you guys?

2  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Arty todos in East Valley? on: May 06, 2006 10:30:14 PM
My brother is visiting, and he's an artist and I'm supposed to show him the sites, and I was just wondering if anybody had any can't miss sites to recommend. I've got the ASU museum and possibly SMOCA and the civic center library in scottsdale. Oh, and maybe we can work in the counterculture cafe, too. I'm still pretty new here, and am pretty vacant on anything not a) craftyand cheap and b) advertised on npr. Thanks guys. You rock!
3  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Business Idea on: April 04, 2006 12:17:07 PM
Hey. My business idea is basically, that I buy awesome stuff in thrift stores and then sell (or consign) it to shops. I started out with crafty supplies, but am rapidly branching out into other areas. I have already talked to a couple knitting shops about this, does anybody know of any other (preferably east valley) shops that might be interested? I'm also working on a website to sell other stuff. Any thoughts are appreciated.
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / vintage transfer pattern question on: April 04, 2006 10:26:06 AM
Hey. I've been collecting embroidery transfers of various vintages with an eye towards selling them online, and I'm just curious about how best to sell them. Would you rather buy embroidery designs individually at a lower cost, or by the whole page at a higher cost? I'm still in the early stages of setting this up, but my website is oldschoolsupplies.b logspot.com My pricing ideas were 50 cents for smaller designs going up by size and around five dollars per page depending. All ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

5  UNITED STATES / Arizona / Crafty Sellers on: March 29, 2006 09:18:20 PM
Hey. Does anyone else out there sell (or attempt to sell) what they make? Would any of you be interested in an austin craft mafia type of thing? I'm not saying we take out a domain name right away, but we could meet up and swap tips and so forth.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / thrifty co-op on: March 29, 2006 09:14:43 PM
I go to thrift stores a lot. In fact, I'm trying to make that my vocation. And when I go, I'm always seeing stuff and thinking "that's awesome, I know someone could use that, but not anybody I know." http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thriftycoop/
I started a yahoo group where people can post what they're looking for, and if you happen to see some when you're at the thrift store anyway, you can arrange a swap or modest finder's fee. The rules have yet to be hammered out, but I'm working on it. Also, any thrifting tips or strategies would be welcome. It's a lot like freecycle, but with an emphasis on crafty.
7  Arizona / Arizona: Central / 'nother job opp in tempe on: March 27, 2006 12:59:56 PM

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / LYS Resource on: February 28, 2006 09:10:22 PM
Hey. It's www.mapmuse.com and it has a listing both for knitting shops and for knitting clubs (you know, what we used to call stitch n bitches). If they will just start a listing for thrift stores and used book stores they will be my favorite. And maybe for dollar stores, too. That would rock. I'm going to bed.
9  Arizona / Arizona: Central / february/march meetup on: February 18, 2006 07:48:16 AM
Is there anything special coming up for a crafty field trip? Any other ideas for the next meetup? All kinds of crafty people welcome.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet hook descriptions?? on: February 16, 2006 12:22:25 PM
The company that I work for (www.soysilk.com) has a line of knitting needles and crochet hooks. I'm primarily a knitter, still found it hard to describe the degree of pointiness on the needles. But I managed to get through it. However, when I got to the crochet hooks I was pretty much at a loss. I found this chart of crochet hook terms  - http://crochet.org/hook/hooktype.html 

But that is about as far as I got. Most online stores describe their hooks by color and not much else. So, how do you guys describe your hooks? What do you look for in a hook? What quality is especially wonderful (besides color)? Thanks.
