1  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Re: Stranded In London! on: August 16, 2004 03:46:44 PM
hmm im not in london, im in edinburgh - but there is www.kelins.co.uk - i think the shop is there - i haven't been to it though, but the website is decent. Is there a john lewis, the one here is pretty good - its a chain of big department stores. i know of at least one decent beadshop but can't remember the details. try markets for stuff like ribbon. Let me know if you're looking for specific things, also try asian fabric stores for fabric and trimmings of all kinds, as well as beads, dye glue and stuff like that.

Hi i was just wondering if you knew any good places for crafty stuff in Edinburgh???I've just finished my first year at uni there but I'm still not totally sure where's best?? Sorry to go off onto another city!! Also I wondered if you knew if there are any markets in Edinburgh or nearby I can't seem to find one anywhere??I'm looking for somewhere that sells crafty stuff or one where I could sell my own stuff??Sorry about all the questinos but Im just curious!!!! Smiley Huh Smiley

thank you for all your advice! I know about the 40:60 ratio and I think it is pretty fair and if anything you can just see it as  :)free advertising. Thanks for your suggestions of consignment sites, didn't know about most of them!!! thankyou!!
3  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / web hosting on: May 05, 2004 01:35:45 PM
Hi i was wondering if anyone could give me some advice about starting a website??? I am kinda clueless!! I have briefly read other posts about web hosting but they mainly seem to be based in the US and I wasn't sure if it worked differently in the Uk (hence putting this here!!) HEHE sorry for my general stupidity but I really want to set up but I just don't know where to start!! Any help would be great, any help at all or even just a hello from a fellow British crafter!!!!

not sure what age your book is for but if you just stitched it you could put padding in the middle so it was a soft book. I did that for a GCSE textile project but my book was aimed at toddlers if its for older children it might not be suitable!! Good luck with your GCSE's by the way!!!!!! Grin

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re:Help with an apreciation gift on: May 02, 2004 05:33:09 AM
Hi i'm not sure what kinda thing you are wanting to do but for the coach with the corny jokes you could buy a cheap t-shirt and embroider some of his best jokes onto it. It would be really personal and i'm sure if he's got a good sense of humour he would appreciate it! Or if you don't don't fancy the sewing you can t-shirts printed really cheaply you could even include a photo of the whole team on the back or something!! Hope that helps!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re:purse help! on: May 02, 2004 05:26:04 AM
hi that is a really cool idea! I don't know just how copyright works but you could use shakespeare quotes and then make some little pictures to go with them and give them a modern flavour! I love all of the "doth" and "thou"'s I think that you could make some really orignal pieces with them!! Hope that sparks some more ideas!! Cheesy
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re:fabric for purse: shower curtain? on: May 02, 2004 05:22:37 AM
Yeah i have stitched plastic pvc stuff with clear/invisible thread before but you do need to change your stitch! Also you could try using a leather needle for your sewing machine, it has an almost flat ended needle and is used to pierce strong fabrics (like leather) but it depends on the thickness of the curtains! Hope it goes well and post a piccie when its finished, i'd love to see how it works out!! Grin
