1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / The "Which Embroidery Machine Should I Buy?" Thread on: December 20, 2004 09:39:37 PM
I need input from you smart crafsters. I'm interested in a home embroidery machine which can interface with the PC to embroider images and photos. I saw a Singer embroidery machine with optional "auto punch software". I'm not clear if that will do a good job with photos. I'm hoping to find this for less than $800. I've been comparing prices online, but I really don't understand the terminology. Any advice? Thanks.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / wedding gift?? on: December 18, 2004 10:36:51 PM
Okay, I searched the wedding section and it was oriented toward having a wedding. I perused the site and didn't quite find what I needed. I'm looking for a very cheap wedding gift idea for a suddenly very religious couple. (One of whom I've never met and the other has a grown a foreign persona.) They have their housewares and basically everything else they could need/want.

I wanted to make a plate with their invite on it, but I couldn't find single clear glass plates yet and I'm not sure about the glue for doing so. I'm sure just about anything I make for my budget of around $10 will go over better than the store bought crap I could buy that they prolly don't need or want anyway. Can you tell I'm excited? LOL (I'm not happy that I'm obligated to go)Thanks for any ideas.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Trashy Desk on: July 28, 2004 05:06:12 PM
Hopefully, I'm posting in the right place. I found a desk and it's in questionable shape. It's structurally sound and cute, but it was left outside for a long time. Some of the paint is chipping off and it seems to have been painted several times before. It looks kind of feminine like a vanity, but it's tall like desk and it has desk size drawers. So here's my prob, it has a thin plastic like layer over the top of the desk surface. This is peeling off from being wet.

Clearly, I can sand and repaint it, but what do I do with that plasticish layer? Other than sheer force, is there a reccomended way to remove it? Is there a similar substance I can replace it with? I was possibly thinking of covering something with a character print contact paper and using wood glue to make a new desktop surface. What would be the best type of paint/ application method to use?

I know of a little girl who really wants a desk, but her family can't afford one. I'd love to fix this up for her. I have limited access to tools and money, but this can be a long term project. Thanks for any detailed info you have!
