1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Urban Threads vs. Sublime Stitching on: May 14, 2009 11:05:17 AM
I don't view either side as saint or Satan in this picture, but I do agree with the point raised above that I feel a little meh about UT in this as having portrayed themselves as a one-woman startup, with a mission statement VERY similar in content and tone to Jenny Hart's, when that's not quite what they are.  Being part of a small company run by dedicated crafters, as Embroidery Library claims to be, is great and perfectly respectable; I'm not sure why the UT "about" information isn't therefore more transparent about it.

I agree that crafters will buy the products they want, and I certainly hope there's room for multiple individuals/companies offering fresh, modern embroidery designs. I really like the Penguin & Fish designs best myself! Cute as a dang button.

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best sewing machine for suede and leather? on: April 08, 2009 06:23:41 PM
I have a related question! 

Can an industrial-strength machine made for sewing leather also be used for ordinary home sewing (like quilting cottons and so on)?  Or will it not work well for that?  Someone in my area is selling one for a good price and I'm wondering if it's versatile enough to do everything.

EDIT: I think I just answered my own question by looking at Sew-Classic's blog ;-)  My guess is that this machine (an Adler 169-373) is too specialized to do anything BUT sew leather or heavy canvas?  But if anyone in the N.C. Triangle area is looking for a machine like this, take a look on Craigslist!

I have been eyeing that pattern, too!  I really love Blue Sky.  I am glad to hear the skirt wears well.  Hmmmm...

hey there,

I am in east Raleigh (near some thrift stores...yay!) and do mostly quilting and knitting, some papercraft.  If anyone wants to get together to play around with crafts or hit a thrift store (I need to visit the Scrap Exchange in Durham again...haven't been there in a while), PM (though I'm not on the internet every day).  I work in a library and have been here in Raleigh a few years.

oh god, I read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes in 5th grade and I cried so hard. 

You did a great job with the film--I love the unfolding of the papers for death & the credits.
