1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Re: Granny Squares vs Peggy Squares? on: March 26, 2008 06:02:42 PM
Hi! To me, peggy square could be either crochet or knit. I'd say it more commonly refers to crochet, though, what we also know as granny squares.

Hey there all. I recently found out about the Aro Valley Markets that are starting up the first Saturday of each month, first one will be May 5th.

I was wondering if any Wellingtonians here might pop along, check it out, and report back.

The info I have says:
"Aro Valley Community Centre and basketball court on the first Saturday of each month from 8am-12pm - weather permitting.

The Markets will be craft and community focused with music, food and plenty of interesting bargains!  Come along, meet the local community, have a picnic in the park, and enjoy a variety of art, crafts, second hand items, clothes, badges, and much more.."

If it's worthwhile as a craft-selling venue I thought I might head down (from Palmerston North) for the June one.

Here in Palmerston North there's a big packaging company called Propak. I think they're owned by OfficeMax. A couple of years ago you could browse their catalog online, but I just checked (www.propaknz.co.nz) and that's gone. You could try phoning them for a catalog?

Hi, I used to get sterling silver wire from a foundry in Auckland called Regal Castings. Don't have the phone number handy, but they're in the yellow pages. Would somewhere like that do copper and brass too? Might be worth a try. I think they had a minimum order of only $15. Good luck!

Cool blankets. I made a taggy cube toy for my little girl in 2000 (same time as Taggies got started, I guess), when she was going through that stage of fiddling with the tags on her toys all the time.

And how outrageous that taggie.com would get all up-in-arms about this stuff. I mean, probably every mother has independently come up with the idea herself (but maybe not actually made something). It's so familiar: "why is it that the best part of this toy is the bum-tag? huh?" :-)

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: knit beaded bracelet on: November 25, 2006 01:32:47 PM
Beadingeyes, thinking back, I seem to remember each bracelet (average size, can't exactly remember the measurement) used a little over 3 metres of wire. On one like the silver/peridot above, I'd use between 30 and 40 beads.
I think I cast on either 3 or 4 stitches, and knit every row, sliding beads up the wire into stitches fairly randomly.
Would love to see what you make!

Can't help you with any local contacts, sorry Rhiannon. But I've been reading your blog, and got your Toasty shop update, and thought I'd reply here to say good luck with the move!

You could try taking your little boy to the Playcentre, if there is one. I've met some lovely and very arty/crafty people that way, aside from it getting me out of the house and keeping the small person busy too!
