1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Detaching a sewing machine? on: January 25, 2009 11:14:25 AM
Hi there, I wondering if anyone knew how to detach a sewing machine that is attached to a table? I am buying the sewing machine solely and the seller said that if I could detach it from the table then I could just buy the sewing machine itself (I do not have the space for the table) . Thank you!

Here is the machine from the ads:

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Crowne + White Sewing Machine? on: December 22, 2008 07:01:08 PM
Hi there, I was wondering if anyone here knew of a sewing machine brand named Crowne? I believe it may just be a clone but I am not sure what model or even brand of sewing machine it is a clone of. I am thinking of buying the machine but I can not find any information on it! Thank you!


Also, I was wondering if anyone could identify this White model? It is a really bad picture however that was all that is given in the ad.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Waterproof layer? on: August 10, 2008 06:39:00 PM
Hi there. I was wondering if anyone knew what type of waterproof fabric/material would be best to use in a school bag? I am constructing one but the search function only brought up vinyl, something I feel I would not be comfortable sewing with since I am really new to sewing. I just do not want to get my binders and textbooks wet when it rains because I doubt my teachers would be very forgiving Tongue. Thank you.
4  CANADA / Ontario / Carbon Paper in Toronto? on: August 04, 2008 05:13:29 PM
Hi there! I was hoping if anyone knew where to buy dressmaker's carbon paper in Toronto (specifically Scarborough). I tried the fabric stores near by but they do not sell it, and I have no clue where else to look. Thank you.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Buttonhole feet? on: July 31, 2008 07:14:06 PM
I have a presser foot similar to the one in this topic (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155991.0) however I have no idea on how to use it. I tried to use the manual but it confuses me even more, and the topics that I have tried searching but the topics I found talked about using some step 1,2,3,4 system to make the hole. My manual tells me that it is a 4 step buttonhole procedure but all I have is the button hole function (the little rectangle) and that's it. When I tried to follow the manual I just kept on getting one continuous line of zigzags instead of it automatically making a box like the manual said it would.

I am sorry if I am not clear enough but does anyone know how to use the foot/function? My machine is a Kenmore Model 385.15618.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Stitch Help? on: May 03, 2008 07:25:06 PM
I have just jumped on to the bandwagon of knitting and I just wanted to ask if it is normal to have rows on the piece I am doing knit stitches on. Instead of seeing the "v"'s that I normally see in tutorials I often get horizontal rows or a squiggly row (in the square piece I am trying to knit) and I am pretty sure that I am doing the knit stitch correctly. Is it supposed to be like that because I turn the piece or am I doing something wrong? Thank you in advance!
7  CANADA / Ontario / Crocheting Jewelry Supplies? on: November 02, 2007 10:06:44 AM
I want to get into crocheting jewelry but I do not know where the get the supplies in Toronto (Scarborough). Can I get the wire, beads, etc. at general stores (such as Wal-mart)? I do know that there are apparently a lot of craft stores downtown but my parents will not drive me there to get anything. Thanks in advance for any help!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with using Charted Pattern Please! on: July 08, 2007 02:57:25 PM
Hi there!
I recently just started crocheting (the Crochet board just made me drool with all the different creations many people made) and I decided to create a crocheted blanket for my baby cousin whose birthday is this Sunday. I also wanted to write his name in the blanket itself so I used Knit Pro to create a chart. Except now, I really do not know how to use/read the chart to make the blanket  Embarrassed. Can anyone help me understand this?
Thank you very much!!  Smiley
