1  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Re: Knit and Bead Shops in Edinburgh? on: October 29, 2008 02:20:33 PM
You should probably post this in the Scotland forum (there's also already info on there about shops in Edinburgh).  Just so you know, you will definitely, definitely get a strong reaction from locals if you refer to Edinburgh as being in England.  It's part of the UK, not England. Smiley
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Crazy Craft Store Idea- please weigh in? on: August 15, 2008 01:06:30 AM
Don't forget to factor in maintenance for any of the machines and think carefully about storage for smaller tools that could "walk away" easily.  I've taken sewing and jewelry making classes and the two biggest problems the teachers mentioned were machines breaking (either through normal wear and tear, or newbies just going at them without learning how to use them first) and class supplies/tools disappearing.  You could try getting a large space and devoting most of it to supplies/gallery for work that's been finished on the premises, and have the actual studio part small and add other kinds of crafts as you're able to.  If you're near New York (or check ebay) you could probably get older industrial machines for relatively cheap and upgrade later on.  I think there's a store in Manhattan that sells used industrial sewing machines for a good price but I can't think of the name at the moment.  The studio part sounds a little bit like the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn so you could check out the website for some ideas on how to manage the day to day stuff. 
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Does anyone know of Bead Fairs that are taking place in the UK? on: April 26, 2008 02:11:52 PM

This is a great resource for beading and business, there's a sub forum on bead and craft fairs and one member just started organizing a bead fair last year that seemed to be a big success (I'm not sure of the fees though)
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Problem with Ravelry on: February 19, 2008 02:41:43 PM
Has anyone else had problems loading the ravelry website?  The site worked fine for me until a few hours ago and now it just says connection timed out, but I can access other websites  Huh
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help with an origami wallet on: November 01, 2007 04:20:24 AM
I found this pattern on eHow and cannot for the life of me figure it out.  I'm okay until step 4 of the first half, but I just can't figure out how to do step 4 at all.  Any help would be much appreciated!

Is anyone interested in having an Edinburgh craft collective?  It would be nice to swap business and craft tips and hold some sales together
