1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / accessibility on: October 01, 2010 08:21:50 AM
Hi. I have a question about the homepage menu, specifically the expanding link menu on the Community button--I cannot focus on it without mouseover. And it does not work at all with Javascript disabled.

I'm not sure if this is related to the event handler or just missing alt text but it's a problem. I have been a Craftster member for years but have recently developed a disability that makes mouse input impossible and thus rely heavily on text elements.  Please help! Thanks...

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / professional-looking messenger bags? on: February 11, 2009 06:21:41 AM
Hello everyone. I'm looking for a little design input/pattern advice.

What I want: a structured bag that is professional and feminine (think Coach) because I have an office job that occasionally requires dress-up meetings.

What I need: a bag which is waterproof and utilitarian, because I commute by bicycle and sometimes it rains, and I need to keep various papers dry and organized.


It seems like a messenger bag would be the most practical design, but I've yet to see one that doesn't...well, look like a messenger bag, which is not what I want. I also really like the look of double rolled handles, but I don't know how to attach them without getting in the way of the flap. Also, most of the professional bags I've seen are either open or zip-top totes, which won't keep water out.

Please help me! Has anyone made or seen a structured bag that has a flap and double handles?
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / sewing cabinet question on: November 21, 2006 09:51:45 AM
So I got this great little sewing machine cabinet at a yard sale. It's perfect...

...except my machine doesn't fit in it. Or if it does, I don't know how it works. I feel like an idiot but I've never actually seen a machine in a cabinet, so I'm not sure how it works.

The top has a leaf that flips down to make another surface, and there's a cutout with two little prongs that are on a hinge. Opposite the prongs is a sort of flap in the wood, also hinged, with a lip that I'm guessing the machine rests on.

I see two holes for screws on the side of my machine--those are for the prongs, right? How do they stay in place? Oh, I'm so lost. And I kinda think my machine won't work in this cabinet anyways because the cutout is bigger than the base of my machine. But it could be I just don't know what I'm doing.


(in case you're wondering the machine is a 1960s Singer and the cabinet has a service sticker plate from Sears, but it looks pretty old. and please forgive me if I posted this in the wrong forum, I couldn't figure out where to put it.)
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / stair railings on: October 17, 2006 12:39:00 PM
so we have these wrought-iron exterior stair railings left over from when we renovated our steps. you know, the slanty kind with the twisted bannisters--not super fancy, but not really boring either. I'd like to use it for some kind of interior decorating project...or something...any ideas?
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / casters for sewing machine? on: September 29, 2006 08:41:50 AM
Ok, you all know the problem. Tiny space, too much stuff. I live in an itsy bitsy room and don't have space for a large table. What I really want is one of those old sewing machine cabinets where the machine flips up from the bottom to save space, but I don't have room or $$ for one, so I'm wondering: can I fit my machine with casters or something so I can roll it onto a shelf when I'm done using the table for sewing? It's an old Singer 328, way too heavy for me to lift, but maybe if I could slide or roll it I could tuck it away in a cabinet and use the table for other things...

any ideas?
