3  UNITED STATES / Rhode Island / South End Open Market, a hip & happy craft selling opportunity! on: August 31, 2004 10:23:17 PM
So I did the www.southendopenmarket.com this past Sunday. it is a super well organized ad high quality event! The market occurs every Sunday from 10-4 at 540 Harrsion Ave in Boston, Ma. There were about 40 vendors which included funky handmade items by other craftster ladies, a farmer's market, vintage retro flea market items, local restaurants, and home baked doggie treats. It was super hot this past Sunday and I was told that traffic was not as busy as usual. I talked to many of the other regular vendors who have participated in the market 6+ times. They said that they sell enough each Sunday to make it worth coming back weekend after weekend.    A 10x10 space is only $50.00.  I did not ask about booth sharing, but the organizers may be open to it as they are super friendly and want to provide a marketplace for crafty folk.  There is still space available for the markets that are running through the end of October. The young guy who started the market  is super nice and professional. He wants more artsy crafty folk to participate. The weekend of the 18th and 19th the market is open both Sat and Sun as it is the south end open studios www.useaboston.com. Thousands of people are expected to descend to that area and the open air market is smack dab in the middle. My sales were great and I really enjoyed meeting all of the other vendors and the organizers of the event!  There are not many opportunities for crafty folk to bring their items to a hip and happy marketplace, but this is definitely one of them so  spread the word!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / SLEEK MOD CAT SCRATCHER on: May 15, 2004 10:30:35 PM
 Cats need to Scratch. To give my two 20lb cats an alternative to furniture, I would love to make a sleek mod catscratcher. I am thinking nice bright pink, green , and yellow carpet. I mean if I have to have this thing I want it to look cool. Plus my two cats are design snobs and they won't scratch just anything, ( which is why they went for our sal-al turqoise leather couch! but don't worry, I have another crafty plan to fix that) I am pretty confident that I can come up with some kind of tube shape from oversized PVC that I can cut holes in to, or Perhaps I can make a mod boxy thing out of MDF and then cover the whole thing with carpet and upholstry staples. It is the anchoring thing that escapes me. These two giant felines are 20lbs a piece and are active like kittens. Has anyone ever built their own cat scratcher? Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a cat scratcher sturdy? I do not want to bolt it to the floor or anything. Thanks! 
5  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / How do I make a pattern of my favorite vintage tunic ? on: May 15, 2004 02:06:15 PM
You know how sometimes you find a piece of clothing that was just made for you. I have two diffferent styles of shirts that I love to wear for summer one is a tunic, the other is just as basic. I would like to make a pattern based on them. I have worn them a lot the last two summers and they are beginning to get tatered. Any tips on getting started is much appreciated! My sewing skills are basic. Thanks!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HGTV Crafting Coast to Coast...Has anyone already taped their project? on: May 14, 2004 01:34:09 PM
Just looking for anyone who has already taped with HGTV for Crafting Coast to Coast. I was selected to do a project for the show and I was hoping to find other people out there who have already taped with them. Just curious as what to expect. Thanks!
