1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How long is a 3/4 coat? on: December 31, 2012 08:23:58 AM
Hello- I have a very long coat. I want to cut it down to 3/4 or 7/8. Could anyone tell me how long (how many inches from the shoulder or where in relation to the knee) that would be. Its a beautiful muted cranberry wool coat and I don't want to ruin it or make it look odd.   thanks so much- Sally
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Designer Rip off Bags at a Christmas Craft fair on: December 07, 2008 01:00:37 PM
I am so bummed out. I have no one to rant to so please forgive me I hope this is not  an inappropriate subject. ---- I paid $75 dollars for a table hosted by a Church/School.-- $75 is a lot for me but people had told me they get a really good turnout so I tried it.  A man not 20 feet from me had 2 tables of designer rip off handbags.  I make and sell crochet, knitted or sewn handbags and Totes. I sat all day and watched people line up at his table.  I didn't have a chance, I could have cried.  I think my things are really special and reasonably priced.  The fair was billed as Christmas gifts and crafts. I feel so sad about it.  How can you compete with that?
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Preparing beaded Trim for sewing on: September 11, 2008 05:27:46 AM
Hello everyone - This is my first post, ever. I have been watching and learning for quite a while now. I would like to know what the proper way is to sew on beaded fringe.  If you buy it in packages, it is usually only a yard long, then  I figure out how long I want my piece plus a bit more, I cut the flimsy ribbon the beads are attached to and then unravel a fringe or two to get enough thread to make a knot - so the ends of my trim don't unravel after I sew it.  I always feel like I am wasting precious inches but I can't think of a better way to secure both end points.  I don't want to glue because that gets my needle all goo-ed up.  I would appreciate any opinions offered.
