351  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making an apron thicker. on: March 02, 2007 06:39:50 AM
Yes, the fabric is synthetics, is not very air-flow.

What is "line" and "interling"?

You mean the paper that will stick to the fabric when you iron it?

So you guys suggest using that paper to stick the fabric with another fabric, like hamburgers?

Will the synthetic fabric melt or sth, when I iron it?
352  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making an apron thicker. on: March 02, 2007 01:21:05 AM
I brought a piece of fabric which I think it's good for apron, coz water don't go thru easily. But it's a bit thin, I want to make a thicker. What should I add to make it thicker? But not too thick that it will become too warm. LOL coz I want my apron to be top to bottom, not just start at my waist.

I am totally a beginner in sewing.

Thank you.

p.s. the search system here is kind of tricky.....
353  CANADA / British Columbia / Re: any *beginner* sewing classes in vancouver please?? on: February 23, 2007 04:18:13 AM
I want to learn sewing too. I am beginner. What I mean beginner is, learning how to put the thread into the machine.

I checked out the Seamripper website, they don't have sewing class. School board has some sewing beginner class, but it's not very helpful.

I know there is just no easy way for sewing. But at least I want to learn to READ A PATTERN, so that I can buy pattern from fabric store and sew it. I want to able to do sewing independently. I think the only way to learn sewing for beginner, the class has to be small.

And learning to sew, it's not only for cosplay. I really want to wear something that "fit" me (my size). I cannot find office-work-clothing that will fit me.

My lovebird tried to take the buttons of shirts. He tried to un-stitch the threads on the bottom. Cheesy

He did it very professionally, any factory want to hire him? LOL

i just went there for the first time last night!  It was surreal!  Especially since it was chinese new year- the mall was  crazy full of people and they had all kinds of performances and boutiques set up throughout the mall.
I was so pumped about the 100% wool!  My friend and I spent like 20 minutes checking the characters to make sure!! So much crafting stuff there.  It almost tempted me into getting craft stuff I'm not really in to- like paper (such pretty rice papers!) and beads.

Actually I found everything in the store are tempting. LOL Grin

I am a new member to this forum and I LOVE Daiso too.  Cheesy

I like their crafts, the cosmetic items, and also those great tools for organization (boxes of all size with mini sections, etc). And lots of items that I like too.

If I have a new home, I will buy things from Daiso.

I am from Vancouver too, looking forward to join the group and come to the meetings. Grin

So the upcoming meeting in Greater Vancouver is Feb26 (7-9pm), at Agro? What is Agro? I need some assistant on the direction.

What other additional information I need to know about the Vancouver group?
359  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Is there a Map of the forum? on: February 17, 2007 05:01:50 PM
*map of the forum?/ *swap?

Hi, I am a newbie. This is such a big and systematic forums. I feel overwhelm by all the functions, those sub forums and their mini rooms Shocked
Other than the "jump to" option, is there a map or sth?
I sometimes accidentally click to a category when I look thru the 'jump to' option, that's why.

And what's a swap? like exchange crafts material?

Thanx Wink
