Thanks so much for that link!  I had no idea about it.  But I won't be able to make it until October! Cry

I'm usually out of town the weekend its on, I don't have very good luck with the schedual synching, but even if you only catch it every few months you can load up on all kinds of good stuff to keep you busy...  I highly recommend looking through the blankets table.  They usually have a ton of quilts that need to be repaired, but look like they were hand made.

I noticed on the website there's a place you can sign up to get email notifications about it- thats when they send you the coupon.  Its good but if you get a lot of things in your bulk mail be sure to put thier email address in your address book.

City-Wide Garage Sale Austin

You all ever been to the City-Wide Garage sale here in Austin?  It's only $5, and WELL WELL worth it- I get emails from them everytime they have it, I'll gladly post the info here next time (its one weekend a month, every month at the convention center).

They sell everything from old quilts to vintage clothing to (my favorite part) DOILIES (spelling?)- tables stacked high with them.  Oh, and mountains of old aprons, jackets, slips; the fun is in the digging.  Anyway, with the email you get a coupon for a dollar off admission, too, so I'll try and forward as many as I can to anyone who wants one.  It'd be a good excuse to get in to town, too  Wink.

Doesn't laundry detergent glow under a black light?  That might give whatever you sew on an extra glow...

I used to work in a bar that was all under black lights, and we're write the specials on a giant mirror with dayglow paint markers.  I'm pretty sure you could get a pack of 4 at Office Depot for not a lot of money.

Well, I went material hunting today, and lucky me all the stores I went to had BRIGHT florecent lighting.  I looked awesome holding all the materials up to my face and trying to see the lights through them...

I found that anything that is like suede pretty much does the trick- I may have double up just to be sure, but even a single layer blocked out all the light.  I also found this great faux tooled-leather that does the trick.  She had asked for blue, but once I told her about the 'leather' and said 'saddle curtains' she got excited.  We'll see!

Do you have a small window?  Like in your kitchen or bathroom?  They might look cool hanging from a few short ribbons in kindof a 'beaded curtain' kind of way...  Plus if you had them in a bathroom they'd be easily accessable for when you want to wear them.

I didn't think about canvas- thats good.  Maybe an inner canvas lining...  Hmm, I'll experiment with it!  Thanks!

I wonder if you could make a giant paper shade of some sort- like a flat, suspended 'screen'?  If you used the same kind of paper used in paper lanterns it would definately soften it up a little, and it looks like you'd have no problem hanging it from the fixture up there... 

Good call on the floor.

Hello!  This is my first post but I read craftster all the time.  I was just commissioned to make some curtains for someone, which I can do no problem, but I need some ideas on what kind of material to back them with.  The person I'm making these for is going to be working nights and will need to be able to sleep in the daytime- as in the curtains need to block out ALL light.  Anybody have experience with a magical no light fabric?
