11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Carvewright machine - has anyone seen/used this? on: January 02, 2007 07:54:36 AM
While researching embroidery machines, I keep finding the coolest stuff online and I want them all!  This is the newest:


It's really pricey but not anymore so than a new embroidery machine!  I downloaded the trial software and it is really easy to use.

12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Brother Stampcreator pro SC-200 on: December 31, 2006 01:19:14 PM
I was looking through the Brother site to check out their embroidery machines and look what I found!!!!  Shocked


I found it as low as $748 on Froogle and I am soooo tempted to just deal with my sucky 4x4 embroidery area for just a little longer and buy one of these instead!!!!

Anyone have/tried this?

Thanks for any input!
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Doggie Bags for Clients (pic heavy!) on: December 30, 2006 09:32:51 AM
I wasn't sure where to post this since there is sewing and silkscreening and it has to do with pets so mods please feel free to move!
Here is what I did for my doggie daycare clients this year - doggie bags they could leave in their car for road trips.  After making 52 of them my garage looked like an airport luggage area!

Made bandannas for each dog:
back fabric:


Wine with individual labels for each dog:

Stuff I put in the bags, nothing really crafty here but all practical! The yellow pouch is a doggie first aid kit:

I made a cd for each dog with a lost dog poster in pdf format so if their dog was ever lost they could just bring this cd into any copy shop and run off as many copies as they needed:

A tag which has my business number on it as a secondary contact number:

And finally, the bag which I silk screened for each dog:

Yup, 52 of these puppies (pun intended!) whew!
14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Singer XL-6000? on: December 29, 2006 02:42:06 PM
Does anyone have this machine?  I am upgrading my embroidery machine and like all the bells and whistles this machine seems so offer but have NO experience with Singers.

Any advice?

15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencilry site/pixalation question? on: October 03, 2006 10:42:06 PM
Hi all,
I have a question that may be stupid but since I am a little computer impaired, please bare(sp?) with me!

I LOVE the stencils at stencilry but every time I try to make them bigger than 1x1 inch they get really pixilated and awful looking.  I do have Photoshop (although I can barely understand the program!  Cheesy).  I have seen amazing shirts here using the stencilry images, how do you guys do it?

Any advice you could give would be so appreciated!  Thanks so much!
16  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Golf towel - machine embroidery on: October 01, 2006 12:21:26 AM
So, I was bored tonight and feeling a bit down.  The bf is in Reno at a golf tournament.  

I was missing him so I stitched this up tonight to suprise him when he gets home (Caddyshack is one of his favorite movies).

Close up:

Thanks for looking!
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Swing your parder - dosie - doe! on: September 19, 2006 07:31:45 PM
So I made this last weekend.  I found the coolest square dancing album (circa 1947) at a thrift store and knew I had to make the cover into a purse!


Side view:

The awsome fabric I found for the lining:

Now I want to do something with the cool booklet that came with the records - it is a square dancing instruction booklet full of dances like, "You swing my gal, I'll swing yours"! ha!

Comments and/or suggestions greatly appreciated!!
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / GREATEST GARDEN CONTEST - my entry! on: July 19, 2006 01:26:51 PM
After seeing everyone's amazing gardens - I am almost too embarrased to post these pics!  The reason why I love my garden so much is that it puts up with so much abuse (around 20 dogs a day run around on it!) - and still manages to look pretty (to me at least! Cheesy)

You can see the Golden Gate Bridge! Yesterday was pretty hazy so it isn't too clear in the picture, but I swear it is there!!

And a pic of a couple of my daycare dogs

I used to have creeping thyme where the bricks are but the dogs kept trying to eat it!  I have to think of sometihing else to plant there that can withstand a lot of traffic - any suggestions?  Wink

Thanks for looking!

20  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Heat setting help? on: June 23, 2006 08:05:43 AM
I am not sure what I am doing wrong.  I am using Versetex and following the directions exactly, covering the ironing board with aluminum foil, using the hottest setting the fabric will allow, etc.  Unfortunately, the fastness of the ink is completely random.  Sometimes the ink will wash off in the laundry and sometimes not..... I have two tank tops heat set the exact same way, one has lasted through several washes and one didn't last through one wash  Huh

I am using a regular household iron.  Any suggestions?  Should I heat set, wait a bit, and heat set again?

Thanks for any and all suggestions!
