241  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:where did you go to school? on: March 09, 2004 07:51:56 AM
Well I guess I may not qualify as a business owner per say, seeing as I still have a 'day job', but my crafty business has taken over my life to the point where it is basicly like having a second part-time job.

I am one of those RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) alum bums. The most important thing I got from my degree was an unstoppable work ethic. Which I feel is very important. My crafts are my artwork, and being prolific is key. (Not to mention it is so much fun to have a small army of creations taking over my studio especially just before a craft sale.) I also learned from my art schooling that the major I chose was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life (illustration). I wish there was a Grad school for Crafting, wouldn't that be cool?

I wish I could go and meet you guys! This week is too busy for me. Will you meet again after this week?

Are you going to just meet up, or are you guys going to do knitting? I don't know how to knit, but I want to learn! Maybe someone could teach me...


243  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re:Proposals For New Swap Themes on: March 09, 2004 06:58:25 AM
I would love to take part in a handbag swap...who would be the person in charge?

Also, I like the idea of colored theme swaps, like a blue swap, or a green swap. It think that is a cool idea, and would include all of the crafty people and the various things we all make. I think the two month time frame is good too.

Well, I know you are looking for something cheap, but sometimes the extra $ makes it worth while. I have a Husqvarna 230, it was originally $800, but the last of a discontinued model they had in the store and I got it for $400. which seems like a lot still, but 6 years later and it is still working great, I haven't ever had it break down on me, and I really push its limits by sewing things like fur fabric with it.

Anyway, you can also check out salvation army stores, and get an oldie but goodie, stick to brands like phaff, or singer, and get it fixed up at sewing machine store. That might be a cheaper way to go, and you could get a really good quality machine that way too.
245  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / faux fur fabrics, please? on: March 01, 2004 06:45:17 PM
Does anyone have a idea of a place to get higher end fur fabric? In RI I go to Lorraine's, but she has scrap bins, and it's a crap shoot as to what is there. I get a medium grade fur fabric from http://www.mendels.com/fauxfur.html that is great for my small furry monsters, but I want to make bigger creatures with better furs, that isn't too unreasonably priced.

Anyone know of something good out there? I was thinking NY or LA might have good places to go...
