2  California / California: Central / Big Craft and Sewing conference/convention in the Bay Area? on: February 12, 2005 11:21:31 PM
Heylo, my friend was just telling me about a big Craft and Sewing conference/convention in the Bay Area happening on Presidents' weekend. Does anyone out there know exactly where it is and all that good info? How did this escape my knowledge? =P
3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle felted mushroom pin cushion on: February 09, 2005 10:01:53 AM
My mushroom pin cushion, and yes I was inspired by Mario Bros. =) I needlefelted it using red and yellow felt roving.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my first felted wool flowers! on: January 15, 2005 12:30:24 PM
I finally bought the wool roving and felting needles to make some chubby felted flowers. I love them! I got advice from Crafty Ass Chick who gave me this link to felt wool: http://www.mielkesfarm.com/ladybug_dir.htm

Felting is addictive as well as time consuming. The first salmon colored one took me an hour. =P

5  California / California: Central / Where can I buy wool roving in the bay area? on: January 06, 2005 11:06:47 AM
Hi everyone, do any folks who spin wool into yarn or do wet or needle felting know where I can buy wool roving in a store and not on-line? Anywhere in the Bay Area works for me. I just need instant gratification, versus waiting for a week or two for the mail to arrive. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks! =)
