1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / cashmere sweaters: ideas for reconstructing on: January 22, 2006 09:14:55 AM
I noticed a number of people have picked up great cashmere sweaters at thrift stores and other places, and wanted to know if there were good ways to recycle them into better pieces.  I've only got as far as cutting them up into their basic elements and am now looking for ways to recycle them.  I'm thinking that I just need some patterns and can sew the pieces back together.  But do I need a serger?

I love the designs on this site:

2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Re: Looking for industrial felt on: November 21, 2004 07:10:15 PM
I found a solution to my industrial felt project problem:

Moving blankets are made of industrial felt.  It is a slightly lower grade felt than the felts used in industry (which are often made with a specific purpose) but the colours and thicknesses are the same.  I found a supplier that sells by the blanket:  72" by 54" 6.77 per blanket.  You can also by a dozen at a time, and the price is lower.

I'm bumping this up.  I'm also looking for industrial felt.  Everything I've found so far seems to be wholesale only.  That said, thefeltpeople seem perfect.

Maybe I need to look outside of the box.  I know that industrial felt is sometimes used under carpets, and blankets of industrial felt are used for moving.

Does anyone know if you can get it at hardware stores or carpet stores, or another non-traditional way?

there are a few independent book stores here:

amazon (feminist-owned since the 70s)

craftyplanet.com (stocks craft books and supplies, and has classes)

ruminator books (next to macalester college, a good audience and has already an established reading series)  they can really use the business.

i've got an extra futon, too.  Smiley
