1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Shipping prices from Quebec on: July 14, 2009 01:44:59 PM
Hello all,

if this has already been discussed please direct me to the thread and delete this one, thanks!

I'm just getting everything organized to open up my new etsy shop and I have a few things still left to do, one of these is figuring what to charge for shipping.

I sell gemstone and sterling silver bracelets, earrings, and small pendants.

How much should I charge for each to ship within Canada and to the U.S.? I know costs vary greatly within Canada, I once sold a t-shirt on ebay and had to send to Nunavut and ended up not making any money! I don't want to go the pre-paid envelope way as I think it's too expensive to use for just jewelery unless a client asks for expresspost.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Newbie question crossed stitches on: January 29, 2009 07:31:55 AM
I searched everywhere but couldn't find an answer to my question, if there is already a post answering my question please direct me to it!

So here's my question, I recently taught myself to knit, and was joyfully exclaiming "I can knit, FINALLY, I can knit!" but to my horror I realized that I keep getting these crossed stitches on my needles, it almost looks like I skipped a stitch then went back to get the other one, but I know I didn't. I keep undoing my work and starting over paying close attention to my work, but it STILL happens! Can any knitters out there explain what I'm doing wrong? I'm sure it's just some stupid newbie mistake but I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong Sad

Thank you in advance Smiley
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / New to rag quilt need pattern help please on: December 12, 2008 07:57:32 AM
ok so I got a bunch of fabric to try out my first ever rag quilt, but now I really don't know how to arrange all these colours! Here's a list of what I have:

24 purple leopard
24 blue leopard
24 green leopard
49 purple plaid
49 blue plaid
49 green plaid
about 200 black squares (so most of the quilt will be black)
the backing I haven't chosen yet, might just so it in black since it's a cheap flannel.

I was thinking a sort of starburst effect starting with 3 different leopards in the middle but with an uneven number of colours any pattern will be difficult!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Best embroidery book for beginners on: October 26, 2008 10:49:17 AM
Hello everyone! I just started embroidering and was wondering what really is the best first book to purchse? there are a lot of different suggestions a little everywhere on here! I don't need a kit since I have floss, hoops, needles and such. What I'm looking for is a book that just explains all of the different stitches. I've found great videos online but it's much more easy to look at a book than squint at a screen!

If this has been asked before, kindly point me out the thread please Tongue
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Making beads "float" on a chain, crimping beads? on: July 25, 2008 03:11:05 PM
Hello I'm new to making my own jewelery and I was looking to make something similar to these:

I have some silver chain which this seems to be beaded on and I'll be recieving the beads soon. My problem is that I'm not sure how to make the beads "float" as they seem to be doing on these. I can see some little silver beads there, are they "crimping beads"? If so aren't they usually smooshed onto wire and not chain? Also they seem to be nice round beads, will I need crimp covers or do they have some that when smooshed look like little beads?

Sorry for the long post and my ignorance  Cheesy
