1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Re: problem with Elna 8200 on: November 15, 2009 11:48:14 AM
Did you get this worked out?  Do you that the digitizing software?
  I am on the verge of buying this machine, and curious how you like it...
I had a Brother ED240 and it would only let me do 1 line at a time.
   Thanks for your time!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Re: The "Which Embroidery Machine Should I Buy?" Thread on: November 15, 2009 11:45:29 AM
Hi all!
  Thanks for lots of great information about buying machines!

I read on here that Elna is made by Janome.  It seems like a lot of people recommend the Janome 350, but they say it is similar to the Elna 8200 Xperience.  The Elna is a lot less expensive (and more in my budget...)
  Does anyone have experience with Elna?  I am attracted to the 5X7 hoop and the editing software that comes with this machine.  It is such a hard decision, picking out a machine!  I have been researching for a couple of weeks!

Thanks for your time  Grin
3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Elusive Etching Cream on: December 08, 2007 02:14:01 PM
At my Michaels in California, you have to ask for it at the front because they keep it locked in a cage so that no one under 18 gets it.  By the way, it's brand name is usually Armour Etch. Make sure you wear gloves when you use it.

 They also sell 'sandblasting' kits for glass.  They have less chemicals, but you need to wear a mask and eye protection.

Have fun!!!
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / dark fabric iron on's & fabric type on: November 28, 2007 06:41:49 PM
I want to make family sweatshirts for Christmas.
 I went out and bought the Avery transfer paper for dark colors, but on the package it says to use 100% cotton fabric.
 All the sweatshirts I see are 50/50.  Does it matter?  Do I need to give up and do t-shirts (which are all cotton?)  I really wanna do sweatshirts.....
Thanks!

Hi!  To remove odors from clothes and brighten fabric colors add 1/2 cup of plain white vinegar to the rinse cycle of the washing machine.

For items that aren't washable add 1 cup white vinegar to a bathtub full of hot water.  Hang the items above the steam.  Then shut the door for a while to let it "soak in"
I have done this method a lot and it works really well!  Great for smokey odors too!

Jesser was asking about knitting...I know it might be cheating to the real knitters of the world, but the Knifty Knitter is the best thing I have ever bought!
This year I have made lots of hats, scarves and cuffs that I sewed on knit gloves!  I just sit at work on my luch break and "knit" like crazy!
You can also look up' Knifty Knitter' on here.
    Happy Holidaze!

I absolutely love my Knifty Knitter looms!  This year I am making scarves for my family for the Holidays.  There are lots of patterns on www.provocraft.com
Just make them your own by using cool yarn!
