1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Advice for a yoga themed craft with large group of non-crafty types?! on: August 01, 2010 12:05:49 PM
I need help!!!
I am responsible for a "craft" of some sort at a yoga retreat I go to every year. In past years we have made a felt Ganesha (the Hindu deity) and little inspirational pockets with scrapbooking materials. I want to do something new and fun!

I am low on supplies and cash so I'm trying to be creative. I have to keep in mind that some of the crafters are brand new at doing these types of things so it should be something easy-ish and not too involved. I have an hour and a half to run this little craft. The theme of the camp this year is "creating fullness in your life". Some ideas I have come up with have been a meditation focal piece, a small handstitched booklet to add camp experiences and ideas to, bookmark.... yeah that's about it!

I also have access to a laser cutter machine that I can use to make supplies. It is able to cut paper and fabric into any shape I need. Does anyone have any crafty/artsy yoga ideas!?? I new craftster would be the best place to come to ask!

2  California / California: South / Little fabric store in Highland (San Bernardino) CA on: September 22, 2009 12:09:37 AM
There is a small store in Highland on Palm Ave (between Baseline St and 5th St) called Black Diamond. It's a teeny tiny store but they have some nice fabrics, most for $2 a yard! Some upholstery fabrics, fleece and stretch fabrics as well as some cotton vintage inspired prints. They have a nice little supply of some hard to find lace and stretch lace and some ribbon. I found some fun skully stretch fabric, some leopard print fleece in a few colors and some nicely priced plain colored cotton. Some old patterns (1960's through 1990's) for 50cents and a few notions as well.

Probably not worth going completely out of your way for but I highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area to support a small fabric store. They also hold some sewing classes and have nice sales. I can get more info if anyone would like as they are not listed anywhere I can find! The nice lady that was working when I visited had cute purple and blond hair with some neat looking tattoos. The store seems to have an alternative edge with some pretty fabrics as well. They said they get new stuff in about every two weeks.

Check it out if you get a chance, goodness knows we need some new fresh fabric store choices out here in San Bernardino besides JoAnns (no offense to JoAnns! Cheesy) (Approx address is around 7390 Palm Ave, Highland CA 92346)
