21  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Quickbooks and Taxes- help? on: January 17, 2007 05:52:30 AM
I'm trying to set up my company in Quickbooks, (which has been like trying to learn a foreign language to me) and among the hundreds of things I am confused about is the taxes. Here's what I'm not understanding... when setting up your company info, Quickbooks asks you if you collect tax on the items you sell. Well, what if you only collect sales tax from customers who live in your state?? Our company is in MA (online only) and we only collect sales tax only from customers in MA. So far, I think we have only had 2 or 3 customers  from MA purchase something, so we've only collected about $15. in sales tax.
So what is my answer for "do you collect sales tax"Huh They don't give you an option to say.. "I only collect sales tax from people in my state". We have had a lot of sales in 2006, I'm afraid if my answer is $15. for tax collected, it's going to raise a red flag and confuse everything.. anyone else figure out this problem?  I haven't done my taxes yet, but I think this question is also on schedule C. help???
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / resin question, please help! on: January 11, 2007 06:20:22 AM
Here's a question for all you resin experts out there...
If I were to get a half circle mold, (like a ball cut in half) and wanted to make a resin half circle with a metal part coming out / attached to the top, would I stick the metal thing in there while the resin was just poured, and let it set? does resin stick to metal? Or would I have to remove it after it sets, and then epoxy it back in? Does that make sense?? I need this metal thing to be *really* stuck in there .. (the green object in the diagram)
On the drawing, the white dotted line represents the part of the metal piece that would be "inside" the resin. also... I need the top (the gray part) to be VERY flat and smooth.. is this possible? Thanks in advance for any feedback!!

23  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / vinyl fabric in the garment district? on: January 10, 2007 11:05:17 AM
Anyone know of a fabric store in or near the garment district (or williamsburgh) that sells yardage of vinyl? I don't want the fuzzy flannel backed kind, but the kind with a knit back.
Or any odd rubber/ plastic- ish material? I usually just roam around the 3 or 4 streets of fabric stores, but it's hard to find vinyl. Anyone?? Thanks!
24  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Google checkout? on: November 21, 2006 12:21:03 PM
Hey everyone,
just wondering if anyone has started using the google checkout system for their online store. I have a paypal website payments pro account, which is how we have been accepting all our orders for about 6 months now, and lateley there's been some unresolved problems with customers not being able to complete their payments. I want to switch to Google (which also does NOT charge a monthly fee) but I haven't heard anything about it. Anyone?
25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / fabric journal cover? on: November 13, 2006 06:31:29 AM
Hi! I'm positive I've seen on here somewhere books / journals made with a fabric cover. I have tried this, in the traditional method of just using bookboard, and the archival bookmaking glue, but once the glue is on the board, and I place the fabric on it and try to smooth it out with the bone, there is NO WAY to get out all the bubbles. It also makes the grain of the fabric all wavy. I want to do it with thin fabric. That's why its so hard to do it with wet glue. Does anyone know another method of adhesion?? Has anyone tried making a fabric covered journal with lightweight fabric and something besides glue?? Spray on adhesive?? Iron on?? (can you iron bookboard?) THank you thank you for helping!!
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Necktie pattern? on: November 13, 2006 06:23:57 AM
Hi! I'm trying to figure out how to make a necktie as a christmas gift. I've searched online for a pattern, but to no avail. anyone know of a place I can find a pattern? Alternatively, I could just buy one and take it apart, but I'd like to get a pattern, in case there's anything tricky I wouldn't understand by just taking apart a tie. Thanks!!
27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / circle cutter? on: October 23, 2006 09:31:56 AM
Hi all, I have this little feature on my messenger bag flaps that is a cut out circle with a patterned fabric in it. My problem is that my circle cutter is a piece of garbage. It never makes a perfect circle, and I end up spending half an hour cutting it with an exacto blade by hand to fix it. It's driving me crazy! Anyway, my question is... what are these things called?? I just tried to find another one online, and I don't think I'm calling it the right thing because I can't find it. I also don't want the same kind I already have.. obviously.. and I HAVE seen a different kind but I don't know what brand, or even what it is called.
Do you understand what I am looking for? It's just some kind of blade on a circular pivot point, you just place it where you want the cut out circle, and cut the circle out.
Any help?? THANKS!!
28  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / U S Slide Fastener Corp on Drydock- anyone been? on: September 26, 2006 04:37:39 AM
Hey everyone! So I've heard about this place called U S Slide Fastener Corp.
It's on Drydock Ave in Boston. Anyone been there? I've heard they are insanely cheap because they sell at wholesale prices (and they prefer buy in bulk) Zippers, fasteners, slides, velcro.... supposedly they're a hidden gem. Any comments??
29  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / cheap place to get chairs reupholstered? on: September 13, 2006 05:11:04 AM
Hi! I had a great find in someone's trash - 2 Henry Miller chairs! The only thing is that they are in really bad shape, and I want to get them reupholstered. I tried to take the fabric off one and made a vinyl cover using those pieces as patterns but it's all floppy. It needs to be glued to the padding for the chair, this I cannot do myself! I have searched online for places that do this in boston, cambridge, watertown, etc. only to find quotes of $300+ for each chair!! Anyone know of some little hidden gem I have missed who can do this for less? Thanks!
30  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Anyone using Hostway.com for their online store? on: September 01, 2006 07:37:40 AM
Hi!  I've been using hostway.com for my online store, and it's been going pretty well so far.  I just can't figure out one thing.  I would like to do a promotion like this:  "Tell 5 friends about our store, if 1 of your friends buys a bag, you get a 5% discount.  If 2 people buy a bag, you get 10% discount, etc."  But I'm not understanding how to make that work.  For example, when someone buys a bag, how do you know if they were referred by someone trying to use that promotion.  Does any of this make sense??
