1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Re: Good stuff in Prague? on: March 24, 2006 01:46:59 PM
Glass beads? You won't be able to move in Prague for the amount of crystal and glass shops and lots of them sell beads but usually pre-strung. But I think you might be able to get them loose as well. They're mostly tourist shops so try not to buy too near the city centre (old town square, mala strana, Wencelas Square) because they'll be way more expensive there. Hope you have a lovely time  Smiley

This is probably very obvious but 3M's Spraymount is flexible to work with at first and then permanent but it stinks like hell! You really need a mask and a well ventilated room. Not much help I know  Roll Eyes

I found the Reader's Digest New Complete Guide to Sewing to be an excellent book, it's got really clear photos, line drawings and explanations.

Aw, he's so cute. I love his little fez with a brim.

Thanks so much for posting that ebay seller - I've been looking at their stuff and it's sooooo beautiful!

Aw thanks, I actually suggested it because I did something similar myself with a poster I was designing and I think it looked quite good. You'd kind of expect flies or something so the butterflies and moths are a little surprising.
Here's how I did it:

(please excuse the quality, I just did a screen grab from Quark Xpress so it's only a pixellated preview)

since this is my embroidery bag, i just might embroider something around it.  Any suggestions? 

I think a halo might be nice  Smiley or some little white butterflies/moths coming out of the mouth? Kind of yukky but pretty too.

Oh, that shop is deadly! I was in Prague twice last year and I spent a good amount of time on both occasions in there. Two different men run it and they're both absolutely lovely, one is called Milos as far as I remember, he has a beard and grey hair - I spent ages talking to him when I was there in December, and he gave me the photos I was going to buy for free (Czech men have lots of time for talking to girls  Cheesy ). They have a fantastic collection of old photos, just random black and white snaps from people's photo albums (pity to see them for sale I suppose). They sometimes have beautiful etchings as well, plus endless amounts of other stuff, tea sets, cameras, clocks, puppets, typewriters - all sorts.

You should also nip into one of the many Antikvariats in the city, you'd never know what you could find in there, especially if you're into old books, photos, posters, postcards, prints or etchings, they're a real treasure chest.
Have a great time!

Hi there,
I'm a new Irish board member. I agree, Ireland is totally pants for fabric shops. Who wants to go into Hickeys to be patronised or ignored.
Murphy Sheehys in Castle Market near George's Street Arcade aren't bad though, very helpful staff and you can hit on the odd unusual bolt of fabric every so often. Not the cheapest but what's cheap here anymore?!
