1  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / latch hook supplies on: October 10, 2007 01:40:31 PM
Does anyone know if there is a place in the city that sells latch hook supplies? Im looking for a latch hook tool, canvas, pre-cut yarns. Any ideas? I know I can get all this stuff online, but since this is my first project I want to see and touch everything first.

does anyone know if madeforsweetlove.com is still in business? i'm itching to try one of their latch-hook kits. i've have tried purchasing one off the site and contacting the owner a few times, but never received any sort of response. frustrating!

if you haven't checked out the site, go now. Whitney's work is amazing!

i also LOVE The New Crewel , by Katherine Shaughnessy. it has amazing modern designs.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / books made from vinyl? on: March 07, 2006 08:17:38 PM
Hi all,

I just got a few sheets of vinyl in the mail from American Science & Surplus and am planning to use them for some sort of book arts project, either longstitch or some other exposed spine binding. One type is black and has the same texture as the seats in old school buses, and has adhesive on the back. The other is an awesome turquoise-ish color, totally smooth in texture, with ugly Disney images printed on the back.

I thought Id give a shout out and see if any of you have worked with similar materials before and what your experiences were. Did you use any adhesive, and if so, what type? Were you able to get a good fold? The black stuff looks like it might hold a fold, but not the turquoise stuff...

Any thoughts/tips?

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / block printing on: March 12, 2005 02:06:54 PM
i want to do some printing on the bookcloth that i cover my books with. i'd like to do it with a linoleum block, or that rubbery stuff that is easier to carve than linoleum. my question is, what type of paint should i use? i know that block printing paint is either water or oil based. do you think that the oil based paint would be more permanent? the bookcloth may be exposed to a little moisture, yet using oil-based paint seems like a pain in the butt. what do you think?
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / cheap supplies on: February 14, 2005 03:49:21 PM
Hi everyone,

i'm new to Craftster, and i love it! i'm really into bookbinding and am always searching for ways to save on supplies, especially paper. in particular, i'm searching for low-cost/OK quality paper to use for text pages. i'm getting tired of using good ol' 8 1/2 X 11 copy paper, and would like something a little heaver that is good for drawing and possibly for photos. i've been buying my supplies at NY central art and Talas. any ideas? i've heard of people going to printers and asking them for leftover paper. have any of you ever done this??

thanks for your ideas!
