1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Have any Felted Knitting Pattern Suggestions? on: March 01, 2010 06:33:31 AM
Hello fellow knitters:)
I'm hoping to pick your brains a little. I love knitting and felting. In fact, lately I almost exclusively knit items that are to be felted. I mostly write my own patterns and have found that I love it!! I am wondering if any of you have thoughts about what seems to be missing from our global stock of patterns. In other words, are there patterns for felted items that you wish existed? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What do I charge to teach knitting? on: November 15, 2009 06:26:54 AM
A local craft store has asked me to teach a beginner's knitting class. I've never done it before. What does one charge for such a thing? (She pays by the class, not by the student.)

Oh my gosh, you could cover it with so many different things! Egg shell mosaic (just google it), magazine scraps, old pages of a worn out book, let your mind go wild! Then, seal it all with a couple of coats of our old friend decoupage.

Also, don't forget ceramic tile or stained glass mosaic and grout - both are durable option.s
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Etsy Shop: Stick to one type of craft or a little of everything? on: October 30, 2009 05:51:43 PM
I'm glad to find this thread as I have had the same questions. I have many different things on my shop but I think it's cohesive. I suppose by shop would be considered an eco-shop or a green shop. I used a lot of recycled, reused materials, etc. My questions is this - Do potential customers have more faith in the quality of your products if they perceive you to be an expert at something (versus someone who works in several different mediums) or doesn't it matter?

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: The (new) Etsy critique thread! on: October 26, 2009 07:21:20 PM
My etsy shop is brand spankin' new. I am very much in need of a critique. Anything is game. I'm especially wondering about product titles. Is it a bad idea to be generic as I have done?

mishimon: Wow, your jewelry is beautiful! Great pics and a super cool banner. I think your prices are right on. I even thought a few of the pairs of earrings could go for higher. (I'm not a jewelry expert though). I'm sorry to say I have not one piece of constructive criticism, only compliments!
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What can I do with this table? on: October 25, 2009 07:30:18 PM
Here are some other suggestions...Get overstock tile from a warehouse store, habitat restore, or some other building supply reuse place. You could do a stained glass mosaic - stained glass stores usually have scrap pieces. Also, I see alot of people asking about beer bottle capse. I am currently doing a table with beer bottle caps. Just use tile adhesive to set them and use unsanded grout so you don't scratch the caps - then protect with polyurethane or similar. Also, you could lay a glass piece in and do something funkly underneath, like paint or scrapbook stuff or whatever. Finally, you could ask flooring installers for any scrap pieces from projects. Natural Linoleum can make a great table top.
8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / putting your website on your posts on: October 25, 2009 05:30:51 PM
I noticed that people put their website's at the bottom of their posts. How can I do this? I'm probably missing something really obvious.

I'm working on a battle cap table right now. Just used some tile adhesive to set them onto the top of a discarded coffee table. Next step is to grout. I'm going to used non-sanded grout so I don't scratch the bottlecaps. Then I'm going to put some sort of protective coating over it - like deacopage or polyurethane. I'll post some pics when I'm done with it.
