1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Thrifty Aussie Craftsters needed for swap. on: January 25, 2010 06:36:28 PM


I would love to enter the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" swap.  I missed out on the last swap I wanted to enter because there were no other Aussies.  Pleeeeeease!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pride Swap on: November 25, 2008 09:16:53 PM

Well Feast (the local Gay Festival) is drawing to a close.  It's been a great couple of weeks.  All the flags, and events, and performances.  But what I really needed was my own Pride stuff.

I don't even have a T-shirt - let alone the flags, hats, jewellery and even pants my friends have.  I've seen that there are a few other gay crafsters on here and wonder if they (and other folk that want to show their pride) were interested in something like this.  Having never even done a swap before this I wouldn't be up to organising it at this stage - just gauging interest.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Silly silly girls. on: November 07, 2008 12:22:16 AM

I've been following your posts' for the last month or so and have enjoyed looking at all the fab toys you are making.  I only just started sewing and my second ever doll from the Silly Girl pattern.  She was great, very simple.  And very funky.  I really happy with the way these turned out.

Here's a group shot:

The first was made by hand and has a special place in my heart.

The second was a request by my flatmate.  I'm getting a good felt and yarn supply together now, and she chose these ones:

I think they look great together.  The little old fashioned dress was her design.  I think I might steal it =).

Here's a little albino girl I made.  Inspired by the lovely wool I just got (at half price - woo!).

Photos were taken by my flatmate.  Anyone else tried this pattern - I'd love to see how they turned out.  Anyone thinking of trying it out I recommend it.  Very fun =).
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Low End Singer vs Janome on: October 26, 2008 05:02:38 AM

Hey!  Just up the road from me is a sewing machine sales and repair place.  They specialise in Janomes and Singers.  My parents are getting me a sewing machine for Christmas / My Birthday and are willing to spend up to about $300 (Australian).

The one Mum picked out was the Singer Inspiration 4212.  Anyone have any experience with this machine.  It sounds like it'd suit my needs.  I'm into toy making, but want to do basic clothes-making / repairs and also some bag making (so need my machine to be reasonably hardy).

What do you guys think?  Anyone got a machine on this cheaper side that does well that they'd suggest?
