12  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / DEPART-ment style sale for TC area? on: September 13, 2005 01:19:24 PM
I was wondering if anyone is interested in a DEPART-ment style sale for next year.  Instead of each craft person staffing their own booth, the venue is set up like a store, with items grouped together. There is a central checkout.  Artists volunteer for a shift. Once it gets organized, it could be set up on a regular basis. There is more info at www.depart-ment.com
Lemme know if you are interested.

13  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / No longer available - sewing patterns on: May 31, 2005 09:02:19 AM
Thought I would see if there is anyone interested in about a dozen older sewing patterns that I am clearing out.  Mostly from the late 1980's and early 1990s.  I still think the patterns are pretty fashionable items, (I was in highschool and early college at that time), it's just my waistline that has changed over the years.  Multi-sized or size 12. Some of them are new and some are cut up, but have all the pieces.  If you want them, please take them all.  Send me a private message! I'm in Minneapolis. 
Thanks

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Sophie felted purse on: October 20, 2004 07:56:37 AM
This is my own funked up version of the elegant Sophie bag from Mag Knits. I used two colors of Cascade 220, and found a lone ball of coordinating eyelash/pompon yarn at my Local Yarn Store.  I changed the pattern by adding handles from Joanns and adding the lining.  It felted beautifully.  My friend received it for her 30th birthday and she was thrilled.  I estimate this took me 8 hours. (I am a slow knitter)  The yarn used was $10.




here is the link to the Sophie Bag

Have fun!!!

16  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Designer - Blue Girl on: October 18, 2004 07:51:05 AM
Ok, someone in the Westwood topic metioned this "first view" website - http://firstview.com/designerlist.html.  I've been looking around at the different designers and I saw this cute little collar/scarfette thing in the leopard print with the ribbon tie.  I've got to make one of these!

Hopefully I'll get to the fabric store this weekend.

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Boas on: August 17, 2004 08:31:02 AM
Last year my mother saw a beautiful woven boa that had all kinds of mohair, eyelash and wonderful fibers sticking out all over.  It was $80.  I thought - I can make that for less - now, here I am $(80 of yarn later), still trying to figure out a proper pattern.  I tried the Stich diva pattern that uses squiggle, ribbon and fizz, but it really didn't have the elegance of what I am looking for (it is a little weird, but I am keeping it - I should post a photo!).  I have seen the crochet boa pattern that makes kind of a rippled/wavy rows effect.  But how can I get longer droopy loops?  I think I have seen something where you wrap a bunch of yarn around your thumb and then make a stich so you get a long loop of yarn.  Am I making any sense?  If you have tried a boa please share your experiences. Thanks for your help.

20  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / MN Craftster get together? on: June 11, 2004 12:11:34 PM
Wondering if anyone would be interested in getting together in Twin Cities?  Maybe for a picnic or just a little round table meet-up somewhere?  It would be fun to get to know more crafty people and share resources.
