2  Post Holiday Purge in Pennsylvania: Southwest by emalicious78 on: January 23, 2009 06:14:08 PM

The Pittsburgh Craft Collective is hosting a Supply Swap at the Squirrel Hill Library on January 31st from 4:00 5:00 pm.

If you have left over arts and crafts supplies taking up space in your house, here is your chance to recycle them!

Never got the hang of a certain craft, but still have all the supplies? Trade them in for something else.

Just want to get rid of all those beads or fiber or fabric? Donate them to the swap and maybe someone else can do something with them!

it's a basic pamphlet stitch.



this one shows multiple signatures into a larger book. the ones i made were just one signature.

does that help?

5  scratch paper books (img heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by emalicious78 on: April 20, 2007 08:47:50 AM
i just spent ages working on these cute "recycled" paper notebooks today. i am so excited about them. i would love feedback. :-)

a little bit about them. they are created with "recycled" computer paper rejects (so some have text and/or images on them) with blank colored paper mixed in. the outside is a heavy cardstock with varying stamps and words on them. the chord is hemp twine and is a single pamphlet stitch.

here are some action shots:

6  bookmakers and craft fairs! (picture heavy) in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by emalicious78 on: April 20, 2007 08:39:28 AM
i am wondering if there are any book makers out there who have sold at craft fairs.

i sell handmade books, notepads and little scratch paper books. i will also be bringing pottery to be sold as well for the craft factory in pittsburgh, pa. the show is in may.

i am just having a hard time guestimating on the books. i have about 30 of the scratch paper books and 10 notepads, 5-10 books. i am trying to make as many as humnaly possible, though it does take time as they are all hand stitched.

any advice from a book seller would be great!!
