11  UNITED STATES / Rhode Island / Providence RI crafty business people collective (craft mafia?) on: January 28, 2007 11:45:21 AM
I really want to start one, but don't have a crafty business yet to start a craft mafia. I am currently unemployed and a student which makes it hard for me to start a website or etsy so I can sell my crafts, and it's hard to afford new supplies other than what I already have...which is a lot, but I would like to be able to buy new supplies sometimes. However I'd like to eventually be a crafty business person and start a craft mafia for the area! it would be great if we as a group could help people in a similar situation to me be able to start their own craft businesses. Does anyone in RI have maybe a crafty website that I could team up with you and sell some of my crafts on? Or maybe even know of some stores locally that I could get my crafts sold at so I can make money to start my own business? all I can think of is OOP! and that seems like you need to have a pretty established craft business already. thanks for any and all suggestions you may have!

I think this would be a good idea! I want to ask a question about block printing, but there isn't a place! there are tons of techniques and methods of printmaking besides just silkscreening, so it would be neat to have a place to include them all.

I decided I loathed gwen stefani post no doubt AFTER I bought this record. I hated it so much that I was determined to make a bowl out of it, but I just got around to it today.

It didn't come out as I'd like but I think it is still neat. My hands are a bit tingly from the heat or whatever.
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / vintage kimono ipod cozy on: December 28, 2006 02:30:00 AM
So I was going to buy a nicer handmade one, but I figured why waste my money when I have some slightly above basic sewing skills and some nice vintage kimono scraps? I just had to buy some felt squares and snaps for this. I absolutely love the fabric, it's one of my treasures haha. I didn't think well enough to make it so that there aren't raw edges around some parts of the fabric, but it shouldn't fray too insanely because I used the zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. I might actually do an embroidery stitch by hand with red silk floss to further keep it from fraying, but I couldn't figure out how to thread a small headed needle with it. Here are some pictures:

19  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Local Crafters willing to Donate for a good cause? on: December 12, 2005 10:12:10 AM
Hey everyone,
My name is Laura and I am a corps member in City Year.
City Year is a youth service corps that engages youth from age 16-25 in community service. We have sites across the country and in South Africa, I work at the Boston site. As a corps member here I work in Boston Public schools assisting teachers in the Civics curriculum, and run a free after school program for elementary school kids.

Aside from those basics, there are many other programs within City Year that corps members can participate in. One such program is City Year for Kids, a school vacation week(s) camp. This is also a free program that gives kids an educational and fun way to spend their school vacation weeks.  I am  on the City Year for Kids Development team, which is in charge of raising money and getting supply donations.

This development team (devo for short) is looking to hold a silent auction where we will auction off various items to raise money for City Year for Kids. Since I am really into supporting local artists and doing crafts and all that, I wanted to be in charge of getting some artists/craftsters to donate some nice gift-worthy items that we can auction to raise money for this.

Please respond if you'd be interested, as that would be really helpful.
