Has anyone had trouble finding doll needles, jointing supplies and fabric for skin in CT? I can't find them anywhere! Anyone have any reccomendations for online stores???

I found everything on the sewing supply wall at Joann's Etc. I was not sure what I was looking for. I'll add a picture here in just a bit.  Cheesy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first store I went to I ask for doll supplies. They said they don't carry them. So went looking around and found everything on the sewing wall. I was not sure what I was looking for so here's a picture to help.  I did have to go to a few stores to get everything.

On the face piece, stitch right around the front part.  then cut it out.  You don't sew the back part of the face piece yet.  The SA is for when you attach it to the back part of the head.  On the head back piece you sew around the non SA side, leaving a hole for the neck.  Then cut out, including SA, so that you can slap it together with the front piece.  Clear as dirty water now?  Cheesy

Okay, I get it, now! And silly me! If I had stitched along the seam allowance like I was thining, I would have made a very tiny head Wink

That's what I get for trying to think when I just wake up...

 Sad  I am so sad right now. I went to my machine to start sewing another poppet(with green eyes, for my sister) and my thrice cursed machine is broken. AGAIN. For only the third time this month.
sigh. Wonder if I can steal Gramma's?
        10 sets of eyes, plenty of fabric, broken machine. Boy does my luck suck.

A brother from Walmart I picked up 6 years ago. Theres a lil disk/gear behind the bobbin thats started to slip.(it's plastic) the needle stopped in the down position and moves an inch either way.  My husband fixed it 2x, but I've used it soooo hard! I used to work at JoAnn Fabrics, and bought and sewed so much!
  Just makes me mad, I was so looking forward to making more poppets for the holidays(and for me). My husband thinks they are the best doll I've made, and I must agree. The pattern was clear and the directions were easy to follow.

Guess I have to request a new machine.

I have always had a singer, and I think that they are really easy to work with.  I was never able to thread a brother properly.  Singers are pretty idiot proof (me being the idiot)

Machines are on sale tomorrow at Joann's!

I've found my Kenmores to be great investments.  The 1970's Kenmores have been described to me as "workhorses" and "unstoppable" and you can pick them up in desks with accessories and all for $20 at the goodwill.  Put $70 into servicing and making sure the timing and tension are right at your local sew and vac and you've still got a great deal, and you've got a great machine.  Sure, it isn't electronic, but that's one less thing to go wrong, in my opinion.  (Purely mechanical machines are so much easier to fix!!)  And if you get lucky, you can get one with cam attachments that let you do all sorts of fancy stitchery.  I sing the praises of older machines, because they're cute and need good homes.  I have three. Cheesy  (And I just totally resisted buying a beautiful 1950's White with pink metallic finish just the other day.  Man, I do NOT need more sewing machines.  Of all the vintage things a person can collect, sewing machines are definitely one you'd need a bigger house for than the house I have!)

And also, thanks so much for the eye advice!  I like bigger eyes, too, so now I have to go look at that ebay store again to see if they have a cool 8-pair-lots-of-colors collection for the bigger sizes.
