You should check out Stitch Cleveland.  It's in Lakewood (right on the boarder of Rocky River).  They have a wide variety of fiber-related classes.  A couple of my friends and I took an basic embroidery last night and it was really good.  I'll probably take more classes in the future.

Thanks for your input, Dealupa!  Good point about something that's mostly holes not working well on an address label.

Does anyone know if you can put contact paper through a regular printer?

My husband and I spent the weekend going scouring nurseries and garden centers trying to figure what kind of trees to plant in our back yard.  Now I know...we need to plant trenises!!!  Awesome work, Mr. X!
334  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Questions about making stencils to use for etching glass on: April 29, 2009 03:41:35 PM
I've done a bit of glass etching (with the cream), but I've always used stickers or pre-made stencils.  I'd like to try my hand at making my own stencils, but I have a few questions.

1. I've read some posts in which people suggested using contact paper...is that the same contact paper you can get at the grocery to line shelves or is it something different?

2.  Can you put contact paper through a printer?  I can't draw to save my life and my writing isn't much better, so computer generated images are a must!

3.  Has anyone ever tried making stencils out of address labels?  If so, how did it work?

4.  When using an exacto knife, do you have to use one of those cutting boards they sell with them or can you use some other surface (I was thinking about cutting my stencils on an empty cereal box or something.)

Thanks for any suggestions or advice you have!

Looks great!  I love the peg-boards.  They'd work great in the craft room I'm putting together.  Can I borrow your grandpa? Haha!

Looks great! I especially like the shades.  Were they hard to make?

That's an interesting idea!  Thanks Ludi!  A scenery flat might be a good compromise between fabric and drywall. Maybe the contractor can rig up a track system or something so we could easily access the wall if we had to.  Are they sturdy enough to hang things (pictures, etc.) on?  Can you buy them or do you need make them yourself?

That's a good idea. If we used fabric, we'd have to pick something that dog hair doesn't stick to...we have two constantly shedding dogs!  I wonder if we could put drywall panels on tracks so we could slide the panels, so we can access the walls if need be?

This might be a stupid question...but what's a scenery flat?
340  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for Decorating B-Dry walls? on: April 13, 2009 05:31:56 PM
Some of our basement walls were B-dry'ed before we moved in.  For those not familiar, B-dry is a system used to fix leaky basements.  The (visible) end result is basically walls covered with plastic sheeting.  It's utilitarian, but not very ascetically pleasing.  We originally planned on putting up dry wall, but the contractor said that might not be a viable option (they may not be able to put nails thru the sheeting).

So, does anyone
    A) Know if drywall can be put over B-dry'ed walls?
    B)  Have any alternative decoration ideas?

Thanks for any input!
