1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stabilizer substitute? on: July 24, 2007 07:16:04 PM
I was thinking about freezer paper, iron it on...I know they use it on the back of fabric when stenciling...i just wonder if it would be too hard to stitch through?
2  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / Re: Crafters in East TN interested in starting a store? on: July 24, 2007 06:58:42 PM
Ah! I went to school in Cleveland and it is NEED of some art!
Now I live in Johnson City and would be VERY interested in something in Knoxville...have been discussing a similar idea with some people here in JC.
I'm hardly ever on Craftster, so if this turns into something email me (swigerATetsuDOTedu)!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you embroider on? I need ideas! on: July 20, 2007 03:26:59 PM
Well, I just started last night but already have a list:
My linen skirt I don't wear b/c it's too boring (swirlys up one side, I think)
Underwear! (need to find plain ones and put days of week!)
Fabric napkins (more environmentally-friendly than paper)
Table cloth for coffee table (I've collected a bunch of vintage ones, why not make my own?)
Button down shirts
Jeans (back pockets)
Canvas shoes (like Converse)
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Natural dye co-op on: April 06, 2006 02:34:18 PM
hey, this is for you business owners and designers out there--
I'm starting a handpainted yarn business and have been focusing on "socially conscious" yarns (bamboo, soy, wool when I know the sheep, yarn from women's collectives, etc) and have been researching natural dyes. The company that produces the dyes I want requires a minimum order of $350 for the first wholesale order and not only do I now have that, I don't need that much dye (enough for about 500lbs of fiber)!
Anyone interested in joining me for a co-op? I can send a price list and the company's info if you are!
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sheep Shed Studio on: April 05, 2006 08:16:50 PM
AWW! I loved this thread (and immediately bought some fiber!) and then I saw those bunnies and my heart stopped!
I've been researching buying (and taking care of) a French Angora for almost a year...so if you're near enough, ozarkcat, I'm really in the market for one! 
This is actually my first post to the spinning board...I just got my wheel yesturday and had my first lesson today...although I taught myself to knit from a book and seem to be doing better when NOT in front of a teacher...so I don't know if I'll take more lessons...
Anyhow, now that I have a wheel, I'm ready for my bunny!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: iPod Cozies on: March 25, 2006 07:49:30 AM
I still haven't seen any Ipod Shuffle cozies! I'm  sure I could knit one, but I'm learning to crochet (from the Happy Hooker) and I think this'll be my first project!
Any pointers?
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Why your website should have content on: March 24, 2006 07:44:50 PM
This is so interesting and educational! I'm working on a website to sell my handpainted yarn, and a friend suggested I have articles about describing the difference between handpainted/handdyed or the benefits of different fibers. Is this the kind of 'content' we're talking about here? Thanks!
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: setting up a paypal account on: March 21, 2006 07:53:02 PM
Just go to Paypal.com. They explain it all VERY clearly. You'll just need to have a checkbook handy (to tie the account to a bank acct) and maybe a credit card (or bank card).
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Movie Knits on: January 17, 2006 05:30:11 PM
I noticed that too! There  was a knitting wife a couple of episodes ago, too...someone on the set must knit!
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How to negotiate custom orders with shops? on: January 06, 2006 12:35:56 PM
Thanks for your answer! The initial meeting today went well. She looked at my handpainted yarns and we discussed the basics. We're having another meeting next week, and I'll make sure to bring up the contract. The way I figure it, it'll include:
Payment schedule
Ordering schedule (or regularity)
the terms of our 'exclusivity arrangement'
Do ya'll have ideas for what else I should put into it?
