1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can anyone suggest a pattern for this? on: August 07, 2006 02:01:01 AM
I don't know if it's bad etiquette to ask for patterns for things I've seen in shops so I apologise in advance.  I would dearly love to buy this shawl but there's no way I could afford it.

I wondered if anyone could point me to a pattern (free or otherwise) for something similar. Or indeed if you can suggest what stitches would produce the pattern I can work the shawl part of the pattern out for myself. I'm afraid I'm not that experienced a knitter so can't work it out from looking at it... the holes look too big to be produced by a YO for e.g.

TIA  Smiley

ETA: I have tried searching for it but there are so many shawl patterns around & i just can't find one that's the same. The nearest thing I've found is for a 'fishnet' style open mesh poncho but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.

2  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / 'LoveCraft' - Contemporary Craft Market on: August 05, 2006 12:39:14 PM
Hi everyone!

I posted on Craftster a while ago about organising a contemporary craft market in York. A number of people from here expressed an interest in participating, and I wanted to let you all know that LoveCraft will be going ahead on Sunday 19 November.

Further details and application forms can be found here: www.lovecraftfair.co.uk

Hope to see some of you there!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Quick question about glue on: June 13, 2006 03:30:08 AM
I've been making some earrings using buttons glued to earposts. I've tried both GS Hypo Cement and 2-part epoxy but the glue just won't hold. Is there anything stronger I could try? I know some people use E6000 but I'm not sure if it's stronger than the epoxy.   Any recommendations?  Undecided

thanks in advance Smiley
4  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / alternative/'urban' craft fair in york on: April 18, 2006 07:16:54 AM
Hi all - I'm forever hearing about the great fairs they have in the US like the Renegade one and Bizarre Bazaar so I thought the UK could do with some!

I'm looking to organise one in York for later in the year. I still need to sort out the details with the venue but in the meantime I'm trying to gauge interest from stallholders.

The deal is: it would be on a Sunday (probably from 11-3.30) in the basement bar of the City Screen cinema in York. It's a fairly small venue but in a city centre location and should get a lot of passing trade from shoppers as well as people visiting the cinema and the cafe. It attracts a lot of artistic/studenty people and they are really keen on supporting local creativity.

The guy at the cinema that i'm in contact with is very enthusiastic about it and is even talking about having one regularly if it's a success. They see it as something that would be mutually beneficial, and I'm hoping the cost of having a table would be low because they're not just interested in making money out of it.

The fair itself would be targeted at a younger age group than the traditional craft fair and it would be vetted, as a lot of the US fairs are, to make sure that everything is 100% handmade and to make sure it's the right for the type of crowd we want to attract. I'll make sure it will be well advertised on the 'net, in local press & places like the university.

Umm I think that's all I know for now. I'm not expecting people to commit to anything now, but if you think you might be interested just give me a sign Wink   I'm asking around in various places (so apologies if you see this x-posted) and if I get enough interest I'll be going ahead with it.
5  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Leeds - Mosaic on: March 16, 2006 06:32:14 AM
Any Leeds crafters out there?

I was wondering if anyone had been to the Mosaic Multicultural Arts & Crafts Market in Chapeltown? I'm thinking about getting a stall there and wanted to see if I can get an idea of what it's like. I'd normally just go for a look before booking a table but I live in York and don't have a car so it'd be a lot of hassle if it's rubbish!

Apparently it's a new(ish) government-funded initiative so it sounds quite promising... Any feedback appreciated  Smiley
6  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Cost of craft fairs stalls? on: January 17, 2006 05:28:29 AM
Hello all, apologies if this has been asked before. I'm new  Grin  (I did do a search first though)

Just wondering how much you normally pay for a stall at a craft fair?

I've been thinking about doing one which costs 30 a day for a space with a 6ft table but you must have it for both 2 days of the fair, so effectively it's 60 for 2 days. Do you think this sounds reasonable?
