1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: the "i love sewing" brooch on: May 28, 2009 10:59:54 AM
Really neat!

I was inspired to make my own version of this:


Since I live in the UK, my tape measures have inches on them!

(Sorry, my photobucket link did not seem to work... Can anyone help??)
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Crafter Meet-up Aberdeen? on: November 12, 2008 02:31:22 AM
There was a thread for this, but I can't find it anymore.

Anyone interested in an Aberdeen meetup of crafters? Smiley

Edit: Tips for craft resources would also be appreciated in this thread!

I checked out your blog and I like it!!! I wish I could do things like that. Maybe you could teach me a thing or two about sewing. I feel sort of intimidated by my non-skills in sewing, maybe I should should just get a pile of old fabric and get started.

I've figured out my timetable for the most part now - at least I know which classes I'll be taking, although I don't have all my extra-curricular activities figured out yet, but I'm getting there. I still think that a weekend day would be best for a meetup. Are you in Aberdeen, or do you live / work / study outside of the city? Keep me updated on your workload and when you're free for a meetup.

That sounds like a plan, even if it might only be the two of us! Smiley

What sorts of crafts do you do, is there anywhere I could look at your craftings? I've mostly done stencilling for the past year (which you can view here if you like - www.flickr.com/photos/krina_  ), I enjoy the occasional paper crafting and have tried to get into sewing. I made curtains for my bedroom which turned out okay, but it was a pretty easy project. I started making a skirt, but I sort of abandoned that project because I didn't really know what I was doing. Unfortunately, I don't have a sewing machine here with me and probably won't get my hands on one until I go home for Christmas. (In my family, it's my father and not my mother who owns the sewing machine - my father once sewed a fabulous circus tent for me to play with when I was a child. I think he made more things for me, but I can't think of them right now.)

Ooh, thanks for the tip, I will check that place out! Smiley

I don't know, I've never been to a crafter meetup (except for with people I was friends with already, but I guess that doesn't count). I thought maybe people could bring a project-in-progress to show around, and maybe everybody could get a little crafting done while chatting? I think that if your hands are busy, the silence would be less awkward. Maybe we could even to a communal crafting project, I've done group paintings in the past, and that was always fun. What do you think?

Same with me, I don't really have my final timetable for the term yet, which sucks. Sad

My flatmate showed me a really nice place on Sunday where we might meet if nobody suggests another place, it's called Books and Beans and it is on Belmont Street near Union Street. It is part caf / part bookshop - they sell fairtrade coffee and used books for like 1-4 Pounds. And to top it of, they have a 10% student discount. I think I'll be a regular at that place. Smiley Now I have to check out the craft shops here.

Uh, greys?

I study English & Scottish Literature and Philosophy at Aberdeen University, if that's what you mean.

Should we just set something up for the crafty cup of coffee in few weeks time and see if anybody else comes along? I think a weekend day would work best for me, because I haven't quite worked my timetable and social activities out yet. I don't know any nice place for a meetup though, how 'bout you?

Hi there,

I just started Uni in Aberdeen this week and I already love it here.

I read through all the tips of where to get crafting supplies, I've been itching to do some crafting again.

I'd be up for the crafty cup of coffee!

Thank you. Smiley I have made stencils before, but this was my first T-shirt and I'm happy with how it turned out.

I find the T-shirt with the boys kissing absolutely great, so great in fact that I made my own version:
