1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Pet Allergies and Vintage Clothing? on: September 30, 2013 08:14:17 AM
It would seem to me that anyone who would have a serious reaction to a tiny amount of animal dander would just know to stay away from vintage clothing. I personally wouldn't worry about it too much if you can keep the clothing in containers or another room or something.

Thank you! As silly as it sounds, the thought of keeping clothes in containers didn't occur to me. I am at the very beginning research stage of this, so I'm sure I have a lot to learn.

Thanks again. Smiley
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Pet Allergies and Vintage Clothing? on: September 25, 2013 08:29:13 AM
Hi everyone!

I'm researching selling vintage clothing online and in-person via craft and art fairs, festivals, etc. One question I had:

I have a dog and cat-friendly home. I keep everything clean, but I'm concerned about the occasional dander and those with allergies. Should I put a disclaimer online regarding this? How would I put a disclaimer at a fair/festival? Would a sign work?

I've bought items online for several years, dealt with dozens of people, and have only seen a disclaimer one or twice. Washing items before selling may not be an option (some still have tags attached). In addition, it's vintage clothing, so I have no idea where it could have been in the past 20 years.

However, I have a death fear of lawsuits, and I'd hate myself forever if I caused illness to another person.

I found an old similar thread, and I know I'm opening up a can of worms here, but I'd like some advice regarding this. Thanks so much!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Problem with your machine? CHECK HERE FIRST! How to properly insert your bobbin. on: April 02, 2011 07:17:23 AM
Okay, posting here is my last straw with my Kenmore. I've been working on it for two weeks and haven't had any luck whatsoever. I know how to sew basic stitches, but I don't know anything about machine functions or machine repair.

It will not pick up the bobbin thread. I've done everything - rethreaded it, changed needles, took the entire bobbin shuttle case out and put it back together, but nothing works.

It honestly looks like the needle is not reaching the bobbin thread - like it's not long enough. However, I am using the needles that actually came with the machine, so I know they are the right size.

The only other thing I can think of is maybe I didn't put everything back together correctly. I've watched oodles of YouTube videos and read tons of how-to instructions, both offline and online.


On a related note, this is a lower model machine that I received as a gift a few years ago. Since repair costs would be as much as the machine costs, would it be better to just buy a new machine?

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Sewing dog clothes from baby clothes? on: February 20, 2010 07:14:48 AM
This weekend I went to a thrift store and found lots of adorable baby clothes for really cheap. I'm thinking I can try to reconstruct them into dog outfits. The ones I bought are all dresses and are sleeveless.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Any tips? I did a search but couldn't find much.

I'm thinking I'll try the dress on her, measure and sew to fit.

I am having this same problem. Right now, we just stuff everything behind the TV stand.

Would love to hear more ideas on this...

Sorry it took me a while to respond, but thanks for the ideas! As for the TV, it has to stay there because that is where the satellite hook-up is. I think I might try the angling thing though but facing where the TV is now.

You are right, that poster does need to be lowered at least an inch or two.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Would like to rearrange furniture, but living room has no walls... on: March 04, 2009 09:18:22 AM
I want to rearrange my living room, but I have no idea how to.

Basically, I don't really have any walls in my living room. One wall there are nothing but doors that lead to the garage, the other a giant window, the other only a fireplace and the hallway, and the other wall is open to the kitchen and dining room.

Here are a couple from when I first moved in a couple of years ago:

And here is the furniture I have now:

I'd really like to move the furniture around somehow, but I don't have a clue as to how to make it look good... help!

Nice. I know some military guys who'd love this Wink

I like it because it's different than the "traditional" nursery themes, but still cute and fun.
