1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Oh My ! Lookie at all of my new skeins and whatnot on: August 19, 2007 07:37:07 PM





I am a teacher and since I have been off all summer I have been spinning my little heart out.
I love some of my new skeins!

I wonder if maybe this just happens to me, but some of my best color combos happen when I am down to my last bits of dyed fiber and I just spin it all together and see what develops.

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Need Help with Winter show display !!! on: October 06, 2006 07:37:14 PM
ok so I am going to be vending at a few shows this winter, such as Handmade Arcade. These shows are inside and I get a 8ft by 3 ft table space. In the past, I always did outdoor shows where I got a 10ft by 10ft space and I would hang all of my handbags from the top of my tent to display them. Now I am at a total loss because I not going to have the tent and I am going to have a much smaller space. I don't want to just lay my handbags on the table because it will look bad and take up loads of space.
What should I do?
All ideas or pictures welcomed.

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / HELP! I need some sewing machine advice Janome memory craft 4900 on: September 06, 2006 06:17:30 PM
uggg...I am so mad at this sewing machine, it is minutes from being tossed out the window.
o.k. here is the story:
For my birthday this year my mom surprised me by getting this sewing machine, the Janome Memory Craft 4900. I was using her old one, which worked perfectly up to this point, but now she wants it back. The problem is that I sew a lot of very thick things just as multiple layers of vinyl and felt and I don't think the Janome can handle it. I sew with the Janome and it seems like the part that houses the needle is pushing down so hard the vinyl/ felt I am working with that it wont feed threw the machine, it just stops and sews the same spot till the material rips. I have to sit there and force the material threw with my hands which makes the stitches look really bad. I don't know if there is some setting I can use or foot attachment I can buy to fix this problem. I REALLY need to be able to sew thick things and the salemans at the place my mom got it from swears that this sewing machine is powerfull enough to do it.
Please please help.


here are some of the specs of the machine from Janom's website

10  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / Location for Spinning/fiber class? on: August 31, 2006 09:20:37 PM
I am thinking of running another spinning/fiber intro class somewhere in the city.
Any suggestons on a good place?
A few months ago I ran one at the Rocket Cat in Fishtown. It went really well but I needed more space and it was really distracting to have people in the cafe comming and going.
