11  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: "Lucky" from SNBN knitalong on: May 13, 2005 12:48:56 PM
It look so beautiful! I have liked the pattern, but wasn't sure how it would turn out--but, really, it's lovely and the color you chose is terrific!
12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: How much would you pay for these!!!!!!! on: March 22, 2005 12:52:15 PM
I say, start a little on the high side--like $2-5 more than you think. It's *always* easier to come down in price than to go up. And, for some reason--people love sales! So, if you end up putting it on sale you might get the price you deserve (which I think is in the $25 - 35 range!)

14  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Re: Finding craft fairs??? on: November 22, 2004 01:29:26 PM
I can't speak for other craft fairs, but I know that the Bazaar Bizarre sends out their call for vendors in Sept/Oct. You can join their Yahoogroup and you'll hear about stuff: www.bazaarbizarre.org/boston There are links all over the place to sign up for the list. Unfortunately, the deadline to apply for this year's event (Dec. 11) has already passed.

Here's another source for non-free knitted flower patterns:

http://www.helloknitty.com/spring2004/pr1007.htm

The flower *might* be from that Nicky English book ("Knitted Embellishments")--not sure. You get the flower pattern when you buy the felted purse and the slippers (which are *so* cute!). The patterns are pretty cheap and really great!

16  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Bazaar Bizarre - website help? on: September 14, 2004 07:38:05 AM
Hi all,
We're lookin' for a website desginer for some help--see info below, but feel free to pass this along to anyone who might be interested.
Thanks!

The Bazaar Bizarre (www.bazaarbizarre.org) is looking
for a web designer to re-design their site. Were in
deparate need of a volunteer to help us design a site
that can support our various events (currently in
three different states). If youre interested, please
send your contact info and links to any websites
youve designed to simone@bazaarbizarre.org

About:
The Bazaar Bizarre is an annual DIY craft fair that
started in Somerville, MA in 2001. The BB started as
an alternative to the usual, churchy or hippie craft
fair. So far each event has had hundreds of attendees
and last year we expanded to the west coast. This
years events (Boston, LA, and Cleveland) will take
place in early December.

Requirements:
The site needs to have one splash page with link to
all the BBs. Currently there are links to Boston, LA,
and Cleveland. We expect to have more cities in the
next year, so those have to be able to be added
easily. Site should be able to be easily maintained.
Site must be able to support the vendor submission
form (currently in Perl).

All sites need to have the same, cohesive look and
feel. Well use the Steve Weisman artwork for all
sites. See: http://www.bazaarbizarre.org/la/

Architecture of all sites will be the same, but
content will vary.
17  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Bazaar Bizarre needs a new home! on: September 07, 2004 12:40:13 PM
Hi all!
The Bazaar Bizarre is looking for a new home. We've had the big DIY craft event at the VFW in Davis Square for the past several years and we've totally loved being there (near the T, cheap bar, awesome people, and cheap!), but I think we're outgrowing it. Last year there was a line around the door. . . which, while kinda cool is just annoying for those having to face the freezing temperatures just for a chance to do some decent holiday shopping.

So, please email me if you have any suggestions for spaces that might work. Our perfect venue would have most (but not all) of the following characteristics:
--easy access to the T
--large, spacious room(s)
--bar
--PA system
--most importantly, we need a space that won't cost us an arm and a leg! We don't want to charge access and only want to charge vendors just enough to cover the venue and table rental.

If you have any suggestions or are interested in volunteering, I'd *love* to hear from you.
Thanks!
-Simone

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:Knitting horror stories on: May 05, 2004 10:13:12 AM
I've definitely frogged several things in the past--it's just so painful, isn't it?

My worst knitting horror story was from last year. I decided I really wanted to make a poncho despite the fact that I'm not really sure it would look that good on me. So, last year there were like no poncho knitting patterns to be found (of course this year, I've found a ton cool ones that I like). So I knit one from some hipster knitting book (maybe even "Hip to Knit" or something). Basically it was 2 large seed stitch rectangles sewn together.

Easy, right?

So, off I went, with the correct gauge etc. .. . I finished it pretty quickly and tried it on at the end of one of my S&B knitting sessions. . . .

Silence.

My friends were like, "Um. . . it's interesting, I guess" and "You kinda look like a superhero!" The poncho/capelet was tiny and looked like a weird grey, mini-cape!

It's still sitting at the bottom of some bin in my study!

20  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:AhHH@! My scarf keeps curling up! on: March 23, 2004 06:31:26 AM
Hellokoala,
Blocking blocking blocking! If you want to get rid of the curl post-knitting, then you can get rid of it by blocking. I think the Stitch -n Bitch has a pretty good description. Basically, you'll just want to wet your work (either actually soak it or use a spray bottle with water in it to dampen), then lay it out on a towel. You may have to pin it down--I know my work's super curly, I think from maybe purling a little tight--then just let it dry. You might even try putting books or something else flat on top of it.
Good luck!--Simone
