1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Re: Go West young crafter! (Roadtrip) on: June 22, 2005 02:23:32 PM
Thanks bettyz24!  I was hoping to get more feedback on the other destinations.  This is starting to shape up...

aw, that's sweet. but yeah, i'd be a little worried about accidents.  whoops!

a word of caution, tinytallgirl: i wouldn't think about gutting a tv. the tube is an evacuated gas tube and a vacuum, and damage to it could result in injury, or worse yet, death by electrocution. it's plain dangerous. so, if you're untrained in television repair, i would leave it alone. there might be places to find pre-gutted tv sets.

How lucky you are! Those are beautiful creations.  Your grandmother has incredible talent.

The images had a bit of trouble appearing at first, but you could try reloading the page or if you're using Internet Explorer, try right-clicking on the image and click on "Show picture".

I suppose, to start, you could buy some inexpensive or used shoes or recycle your old shoes for the soles (the base). Then, all you have to do is reconstruct the uppers. Run a search on "shoes" and you'll find what others have done with reconstructed shoes.

I've never tried this before, but you could always see if those shoe-repair shops sell soles? Or at least give you a list of suppliers.

Wow, you girls rock. I'm really going to have to be careful with my wallet when I head out...  Cheesy  I will definitely make an effort to visit all the stores listed.

As for Victoria and Vancouver Island, I will have to see if I have enough time to visit. Hopefully!

Thanks a lot everyone.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is your "stitch rate?" on: May 25, 2005 05:24:15 PM
Same as justlease, I first learned how to knit English. I remember seeing a story on TV about a Norwegian (?)woman who started a knitting school in LA and she taught her students to knit Continentally. I was totally fascinated at how fast she was knitting.  And it seemed only natural to hold the yarn in my left hand while crocheting. It took a while to get used to, but once you get it, it will flow. Plus, it's nice to have the advantage of knowing both styles, to accomodate different stitches (like lace, or bead knitting, for example) and to give your left yarn-holding fingers a break.

If you have Debbie Stoller's Snitch 'n' Bitch, there are really great instructions on how to knit Continentally.

One note though: If you knit with straight needles, Continental may seem a little strenuous and messy. I use circs to minimize movement.

I hope that helps. Good luck!

Wow, thank you so much spirals420!

I will be going to Vancouver for a few days. If you're referring to the island, I don't think I could afford the trip.  That goes for Penticton too (I've heard awesome things about it too, but unfortunately I can only afford to go to one amazing place (that is, Queen Charlotte Islands)).

I will definitely do more research before the time comes, I just thought I'd call upon the craftsters of W. Canada. Thanks again for the info.  I might consult you again later this month.  Grin

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Break Up Mix (CD) Swap on: May 25, 2005 04:32:28 PM
I'm in.

It's funny because I just made a break-up mix for a friend of mine who's recently been brokenhearted.

Hi everyone, I'm heading out west for a five-week roadtrip starting July 2nd, departing from Toronto. I wanted to know if there are any worthwhile shops (craft, fabric, especially yarn, vintage, thrift) and craft shows/fairs to check out while I'm there. Here is the list of destinations/times:


New Liskeard, ON (July 2)
Winnipeg, MB (July 5)
New Battleford, SK (July 7)
Edmonton, AB (July 12)
Jasper, AB (July 13)
Queen Charlotte Islands, BC (July 14 - 24)
Vancouver, BC (July 26 - 27)
Calgary, AB (July 29)
Lethbridge, AB (Aug 3)
Medicine Hat, AB


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
