1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Wholesale WEBSITE For Tees on: April 10, 2009 02:59:41 PM
Hello all,
I am looking for a website that sells blank t-shirts. It doesn't have to be wholesale but I don't want to pay more than $10 each. Anyways my problem is that I need cotton/poly tees and I want them to be fitted (basically i'm saying tight lol like any normal brand name tee, I'm in my late teens and am very small). Another factor to my problem is that I live in Canada (I will buy from the states but with exchange and shipping sometimes its not worth it). Haha so any help is appreciated cuz I'm kinda run into a dead end especially with the fitted thing... All brand name tees fit fine yet when you buy blank (ie: Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, etc) they are all so baggy (mainly talking midsection/belly). Thanks in advance to everyone!!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hmm? Baffled by Yarn Skein on: September 24, 2008 09:29:18 PM
Hi, okay so usually I'm not very ditzy but this has me baffled. I was looking at buying wool for a new project and was comparing brands/price etc and came across something that just doesn't quite add up.. Ok enough talking here's the breakdown.

Brand 1 Wool Skein
Weight: 100 grams
Suggested Gauge: 4.5 stitches per inch
Yardage: 225

Brand 2 Wool Skein
Weight: 100 grams
Suggested Gauge: 4.5 stitches per inch
Yardage: 135

So how come the yardage of Brand 1 is twice that of Brand 2? The skeins are the same weight
and according to the gauge each strand must be the same diameter.. so am I going crazy? Or is there some little thing that you expert knitters know that I am oblivious too?

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Unsure bout lining skirt... will it work? on: August 05, 2007 12:37:31 PM

 First I should mention that I don't usually make/alter clothes it seems just way too advanced for my sewing skills but i'm going to try this...

 I have an adorable embroidered skirt but the material is very VERY see-through so I have some lining that I want to put under it. The skirt is gathered at the top with an elastic band and then just flares out (small pleats at the top)

I'm unsure of how to attach the lining to the top of the skirt since its finished with an elastic (the hidden kind, not just on the inside of the skirt)

Can I just sew it to the seam right below the elastic or will it be weird since the skirt is pleated and my material wouldn't be...

Any ideas right now would be super helpful, thanks
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Mild Puckering Problem Help? on: August 04, 2007 07:48:05 AM

 So I've recently just started embroidering and it's all going well (except wow does it take a lot longer than I expected!) but lately I've been having problems with puckering on some of my tiny designs. I am just using cotton material with disolving backing and just use satin stitch and stem stitch. I can't use a hoop because the piece of material I'm embroidering on is way too small for any hoop i've seen. Anyway I do hold it tight in my hands when I embroider and it usually looks good until I start filling in the designs with the satin stitch then they get kinda wanky.

Is it because I am not using a hoop? and is there anything I can do to fix it now that it's done?

So far i've not found anything on the thread as to how to fix puckering minus using a hoop/using interfacing.

Anyways thanks so much for reading this
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Need online fabric store for rare/weird material on: July 30, 2007 11:28:46 AM

Hi, I'm looking for an online fabric store (preferably in Canada since shipping is so expensive), that sells Cordura or Nylon Rip Stop, something to make a backpack out of. I've never shopped for fabric online but so far i've found no stores with cordura in Canada. Any help or comments are appreciated.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Hidden Zipper Help please :) on: July 18, 2007 11:23:59 AM
Hi, ok so it's my first post so i'm apologizing in advance if i don't make sense

I've been making purses lately & have tried to make inside hidden zipper pockets. They work fine/look good except the inside somehow I always end up with a flap of extra material on one side (when looking into open pocket). I could cut it really short and hide it behind one part of the zipper but I was wondering how everyone else makes these pockets
