1  UNITED STATES / Virginia / Richmond crafty teens? on: February 23, 2005 05:52:50 PM
I'm a crafty teen in richmond who is interested in getting together with other crafty teens! (if there are any).
Is there a craft group type thing going on at all now or is anyone interested in helping me start one? I'd like to hang out with other craftsters and share ideas, etc.
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / starting a t-shirt business on: December 30, 2004 11:48:29 AM
Hi Everybody!
I'm seriously considering starting a screen printed t-shirt business.  I was going to set up a website and advertize and link-exchange and everything and then just make shirts as I get orders in, because I don't know if they will sell and I don't have much money to buy a lot of shirts ahead of time.  However if people actually start buying my shirts it seems like it will be a lot of work constantly making shirts as orders come in.  I'm still afraid to "mass produce shirts" though.  So to those of you who have done this before, what have you done that did/didn't work out?  Should I just jump into it?  I'm worried because I'm in school and I don't have every hour of every day to make shirts.

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / professional-looking silkscreening on: October 20, 2004 06:42:11 AM
I've been looking at a lot of the silkscreened shirts people have done on craftster, and they all look really good!  I've been doing some stencilling with black ink, but I'd like to make my shirts look more professional.  What do you guys do to get such good prints?  Also, I've heard photo emulsion is easy and works well - but I don't like the idea of only being able to print a lot of shirts at one time.  So I guess what I'm trying to ask is, how do you like photo emulsion and how do you make it work for you?
Okay, just two more questions.  How do you successfully print complex images? And if you use glue to make a stencil, How do you get it on the really small areas?
Thank you!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help with ribbing on: September 23, 2004 05:03:29 PM
Hi Everyone!
I've been trying to knit some wrist warmers, but I'm having some trouble with the ribbing on the edges.  I know how to do the knit stitch and the purl stitsh, but when I knit 2 purl 2 it gets all messed up.  It seems like I'm bringing the yarn around on the wrong side or something, because the new stitches are kind of doubled with yarn crossing over in strange places.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.  Please Help!
