I've just started creating my first website...http://www.madebymilla.tk i'm learning html from scratch so be nice! Anyway i've got a links page on there and I know that other people in the UK must make stuff/have websites that I could link to, but it seems we are much less well networked than the Americans! If you've got a website/online shop let me know so I can add you on- I really want to support the crafty people in the Uk, not just the ones over the sea...

Hey Camilla

I taught myself html too for my webzine, it's quite fun and a bit addictive!

I have a resources page with links to US and UK DIY designers here: http://www.dosomethingpretty.com/links.htm#grrlmedia

A lot of them are US based but a few (i think?) are from you the UK. I know what you mean though about the US girls being far more organised, they have an exciting scene going on!

Maybe we should sort this out??

I'm in the progress of getting my act together to get my bags and accessories online at miaowmeow.com nothing there yet mind  Wink

Hey- I've had your site bookmarked for ages! I managed to wipe all my saved emails and websites from my computer a week ago so i've been trying to remember where i've seen stuff- i'm really glad you posted.
Maybe we need to make some kind of Uk based group- like the Austin Craft Mafia or something? Or at least make sure we all link up with each other...

Hi I LOVE YOUR SITE!! its such a good idea for all the uk crafters to join forces! My website is on its way but with all my a'levels coming up its been put to a halt at the mo. Its nothing much just things I've made and ideas etc!so i will let you know. Oh yeah did u just make up the pattern for your skirts or was it a bought pattern as I'm having trouble trying to make a skirt out of some old space man duvet covers! Tongue

Hi!! Thats sounds so cool, I don't have a website yet but im going to work on setting up over the summer! Austin Craft Mafia is really good, it would be great to have a version in the uk! When I finally get up and running and get enough stock to start up properly I would love to get involved! Grin

Hey- we should make sure we keep this thread high up in the list here so that everyone gets to see it- it's great that people are keen to get 'networked'- let me know when you're websites are up and running- mine took me a couple of days to get to the stage it's at now so who know's what it'll look like when I learn some more html! It's totally addictive and i've been meaning to do a site for years and always thought there was no way I could do it...it's no where near as swanky as i'd like but small steps- and I am a total d-i-y-er after all.
For skirts- if you have a skirt you already like then use that as a template- look at how the pieces are put together and cut a pattern out of paper that's the same shape as the skirt pieces- you can use that to cut a pattern out of your fabric- or if you've only got a bit of special fabric and you want to make sure you get it right, use some cheap fabric to make up a rough version which you can alter- then take it to bits again and cut the good fabric using that as a pattern- it's got a proper name but I can't spell it! Or you could get a pattern but you have to learn to read pattern descriptions I think- it's hard to just look at a pattern and think 'oh that'll do what I want it to do'- I used to make dresses from patterns and coats too- because of the arms and stuff but skirts are reasonably easy to do without a pattern- or you could make a pillowcase skirt- which is really easy- in my case i'd have to make a duvet skirt to fit over my arse...

Hey manukenkun! I agree about keeping the thread high. I was just wondering whether you need to have a .com / .co.uk etc. address or whether a geocities, lycos, freewebs and so on web address would be ok?
Sorry if it isn't clear Undecided lol
Thanks
