1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Starting a new sewing magazine? on: July 29, 2008 05:18:20 AM
Awhile ago I came across a group of people asking why there aren't more hip sewing magazines. As they noted, knitters get all their cool hipster magazines, but sewers are usually stuck with McCalls.

I recently got invited to a beta test of a new company called MagCloud---you can create a magazine and upload the files, and they will print copies on demand whenever people order them. The cost is low because you're not paying for a huge batch of printing. I thought it might be interesting to get a group of sewers here on Craftster together to create at least one issue and see how it goes.

Anyone game? (I am not even close to being skilled enough to do this myself, I just started learning to sew a few weeks ago.)

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Where to buy leather cords? on: July 23, 2008 04:58:20 AM
I'm sewing a handbag from Amy Butler's Sew-It Kit and it requires 1/2" leather cords for the handles--not straps pre-made for bags, but simple leather cord. I can't find any leather cord over 1/8" wide through some librarian-worthy online search techniques, and I'm wondering if anyone here might have some suggestions? Is this something that can be readily found in a place in Jo-Ann's? My bag is all sewn and ready to be used...except it's missing straps! Please help! :-)
