Please reply with additions/ corrections!


Canadian Stores with Online Checkouts

Fabric/ Sewing Supplies
A Great Notion Sewing Supply Ltd. - www.agreatnotion.com/catalogue/enter.html
Designer Fabrics - www.designerfabrics.ca/shop/scripts/
Kids Fabrics - www.kidsfabrics.com
Wazoodle - www.wazoodle.com

anymore for fabrics online?

i cjecked the links here --designer fabrics is a dead link
agreatnotion doesn't have a very good collection.. theyre mostly prints than solids and there's no choosing between silk dupioni, wool, linen etc... same for kidsfabrics

wazoodle seems good, but they dont have much stock.. it's nearly empty

also i havent seen any shop that sells interfacing,...

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Favourite sources for Patterns on: August 15, 2009 03:11:55 AM
Hi guys, It will be my first time working/sewing with a pattern
I'd just like to know where your favourite sources for finding patterns are?

Do you rather buy them online --there might be a bigger source out there?
Or you are satisfied with what you can get at fabric stores, thrift shops etc?

And what do you do when you're looking for something quite specific? Like a suit jacket with an extended facing, a shirt with a banding, etc.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting Machines: how do I find out if anyone else here has one? on: July 24, 2009 01:41:15 AM
hello all! i have 2 knitting machines :-)

one is Bond, dark blue..
there's a whole set of instructional videos on Youtube on how to use it, different stitches.. All of my time is on that one

And then I have a heavier one, all in metal and in its own attached suitcase.. Empiral Knitmaster.. I was told it makes finer knits

I got all of mine for free. I traded a floor loom for it ^^; and I also received a spinning wheel and some other goodies...

Today I was able to knit without the machine messing up. I find I have to go more steadily and slowly, somewhat pushing down on the carriage (straight down rather than pushing to go up the needles)
more experiments in later days.. I'm trying to make a 20st x 20st swatch to figure out how much I need for a sweater/tee I drafted using my measuremennts

you mean this will work with an Indian Head? wow!!  Shocked

i think you can spin bulky yarn with the kiwi too.
it has removeable attachments for spinning different kinds of yarn.
that's the wheel i'm after too.. it looks quite small and compact, light
but i'm getting an Indian Head for free so i'm not sure ...
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Indian Head Spinning Wheel on: March 01, 2009 02:04:42 PM
Has anyone worked with this kind of wheel?
What's your opinion of it...

Someone is offering me one..
I remember last year, I overheard classmates saying they don't like it.
I didn't ask why though

They are quite large wheels, aren't they?
I'm hoping to be able to spin novelty yarn as well as fine yarn.
The lady told me they are used to spin thick and novelty yarns only..

what do you think of your wheel so far?
does it work okay?
