1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / I'm desperately seeking colored ball chain in plastic or metal. Ideas? on: May 27, 2008 03:46:12 PM
Hi.  I'm a necklace and pendant maker.  For my newest items I want to use ball chain, but I'm bored with the standard silver color.  I've seen other crafters selling necklaces with colored chain in black, pink, red, yellow etc.  Where are they buying it?  I'd like for it to be the smaller size... 2.4 mm or less.  Plastic or metal will work. Does anyone have a source they'd like to share.  Google has been no help so far. 

Also... if you have a suggestion for another type of chain/cord that I can buy inexpensively that would work with modern/funky pendants let me know.  Smiley
2  Texas / Texas: North Central / Dallas: Craft Supply emergency! on: June 01, 2006 08:13:27 AM

The company I normally order from just screwed me and sent my shipment late.  Now I need to find 4 part Gripper Snaps by tomorrow!!!!   Does anyone know a local company that sells them?  Preferably not the Dritz brand, but more of a professional quality.  I live in the East Dallas area.

I'm talking about the kind that has a cap+prong and cap+snap .  Smiley

If you have ideas, please let me know.

Spread the word if you have ideas!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Mals cart technical help on: July 31, 2005 05:51:38 PM
HI.  So, thanks to the many posts on these board about shopping carts, I've finally chosen to go with Mals-e for my cart and PayPal for the processing.  Everything has been going fine and it was super easy to set up, but now that the site is complete and I'm ready to launch... somethings wrong. 

The last thing I did to my site was to add the "Shopping Cart" button so that people can access the cart from any page they are on.  Fine, the button went in fine but it doesn't work.  When I click on the button it brings up an error page that says User ID not recognized.  I placed my Mals user id in the html for the button, so I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.  The Mals msg boards are no help at all.  I figured a savvy crafty girl would have the answer, so I'm turning to you guys.   Thanks!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / How to make a sturdy FRAME BACKING? on: July 06, 2005 08:22:28 PM
I'm making a frame out of clay and then firing it.  I'll need to make a frame backing from scratch to fit the unusual size.  Any thoughts?  Has anyone does this?  I really want it to be sturdy and not fall apart on me.
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Screen printing/Silk Screening My results faded! on: May 20, 2005 10:00:42 AM
I just learned how to do this after buying the Super Value Fabric Kit.  It was really easy and unbelievably, everything worked out perfectly.  My my screen was perfect, the design was crisp and clean etc.  Then I did a heat setting with a hot iron and just to be sure I put my shirt in a hot dryer for 30 minutes.  Then I washed it in cold and it faded quite a bit.  The image is definitely there, but it looks like a really old t-shirt.  What did I do wrong?  Is this the result that I should expect?  I was wondering if anyone had a tip for keeping the vibrant color.  Please help.

7  Texas / Texas: North Central / Craft Shows / Bazaars in Dallas on: April 14, 2005 03:41:47 PM
HI.  I'm a crafter/ artist and I've never done a craft fair before.  Has anyone done a show in the Dallas area?  I know about Cottonwood, Main St. Fest, and some other biggies.  The upfront costs seem kinda scary and you have to pay for tent rental.  Dallas seems kinda pathetic when it comes to art festivals, but maybe I just don't know about them.  Please share your thoughts.
8  Texas / Texas: North Central / Buying Crafting Supplies in Dallas? Ideas? on: January 28, 2005 10:21:46 AM
Hi. I'm a Dallas girl in the White Rock area and I'm a crafter.  I make lots of stuff but right now I'm focusing on fabric/sewing related crafts.  Does anyone know where to buy fabric at wholesale prices?  I mean garment fabric and not decorators fabric.  I also need to find a place to buy wholesale notions like snaps, buttons, grommets etc.  Thoughts?  The bottom line is I'm mega poor and I need to find my crafting supplies at rockbottom prices.  I'm sure some of you can relate.  Michael's, Joann's, etc are great in a pinch, but I just can't afford to keep paying retail.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Check out these Fabric Flowers. How??? on: January 25, 2005 08:04:16 AM
First of all.... HI!  I'm new here and have been reading posts about fabric/felt flowers all morning.  I recently saw some AMAZING fabric flowers and now I have to know how to make them.


Thea Starr is the designer and she's mega talented.  Has anyone seen a diy tutorial that even resembles this kind of flower? 

I'm also interested in making little rockabilly style flower clips, but can't seem to figure out how to make them look professional.
