Hey Cassettetape, I'm in Berwyn. There are a few of us in Chester Co.

Okay, so I went to the King Tut show at FI, and I kept staring at the beadwork - so I could memorize the pattern Smiley
It's a good show- in case anyone was wondering.

I'm in Berwyn - I think besides a girl on here who is at Bryn Mwar I might be the closest to Villa Nova.

There is a train station right there next to the campus, but Wayne is a cool little place just down from VN - bars, coffee shops etc.

You'll be quite a way out of Philly proper - but still in a cool area.
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Re: Sewing Paper on: January 08, 2007 07:31:02 PM
When I've sewn paper, I've used a straight stitch with a very long length and a sharp needle. I've also used a long and wide zig zag.

When doing machine emb. on paper (I did my wedding invitations this way) use a cut away stablizer on the back - I hooped the stablizer and taped the card to it with a little piece of double stick tape.

Needle tension may need to be adjusted - but mine didn't.
Hope this helps!
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Teaching children to crochet on: January 06, 2007 08:01:28 PM
I learned at 3. I made Mom *lots* of chain necklaces and then graduated on to nosewarmers when I was 5 or so.

My daughter - who is 12 now - isn't a crocheter at all. She knits (english style, while the rest of my family is cont.).

I say, let them try with no pressure. Tell them how awesome their finished projects are, and they'll want to do it because Mom is doing it.

I would be up for a get together in Springfield.
I'd also be up for ice cream ...

Yay!  Pavlov's dog!  I've asked people what they thought might happen if you put Pavlov's dog and Shroedinger's cat in a box and rang a bell, and the response whas "Who're Pavlov and Shroedinger?"  This made me sad.

Hmmm I'd have to say ... you wouldn't know until you opened the box, but I bet you could tell from the noise Smiley
19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: treadle machines on: August 15, 2006 04:21:00 PM
Okay, this may be not quite enough info for you but ...
When I worked for Janome (last year) we offered a treadle machine. There is a decent demand due to areas without electricity. They had similar functionality to the mid end machines (zipper foot, button holes, zig zag etc.)
We started offering them due to several dealers saying that they were spending lots of time retrofitting the electric machines Smiley

So ... not a lot of info, but it does give you something to go on.
The Janome Treadle model was the 712T and generally sells for a little over $200.

edited to get the model number and the price in there for you Smiley
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Holiday knitting? on: August 12, 2006 07:54:25 AM
I think you'd definitely be surprised at the reaction. Family members that had nothing to do with me learning to knit or crochet now blatantly take credit for me keeping up family traditions.
