1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Where to get hot iron transfer patterns printed on: October 06, 2007 11:23:40 PM
Did you ever get an off-board answer to this question?

I'm being driven INSANE trying to even find the right google search terms to look for this kind of a printing service.

I did find, in one of the Sublime Stitching threads (I think), where Jenny Hart mentioned that it's a huge process done offsite in multiples of bazillions or something, but mentioned no names or relevant keyword type things.

If you find a supplier, do let us know.  (I'd be first in line to buy some from you, too -- I have your days of the week monsters and love them madly.)

Hey girls --

We actually haven't been meeting for the summer -- it's been so flippin' hot and had such strange weather that we've been just skipping it.

I'm planning on re-introducing it on Saturdays starting in October (just in time for the crazy-@ssed winter weather, I know...), with a once a month Sunday School.

It's been moved over to the Wild Oats at 70somethingth and Dodge, upstairs in the seating area, too.  (Aroma's had really bad parking on Saturdays.)

I'll let everybody know when e've got something finalized. Smiley

Okay, that so. totally. rules.

(and totally inspired me to want to embroider everything in the house.)

I have been squeeing about this since I read the myspace bulletin, but it just hit me:

you said SERIES.

That means there will be MORE guest artists!?  And I'm assuming they're ALL THIS COOL!?

I think I might faint.  I have to go sit with my head between my knees for a bit before stalking the site to get them the second they're available.

5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: What books are MUST HAVES if you want to spin creatively? on: February 28, 2007 12:02:23 AM
Spin to Knit is really fabulous, especially if you're new to spinning AND you like to knit.  It's the first book that had me wanting to knit with my own yarn. Smiley

(Most of the time, when I finish spinning something, I'm done with it.  I'm sure it's some kind of neurosis on my part.)

If you like socks, the Twisted Sister Sock Workbook has a lot of stuff on spinning on a spindle for sockmaking, and has some faaaabulous stuff on dyeing your own fibers to spin, too.

Handspun Revolution is eye candy AND practical, if you want to make artyarns.  It's probably best to know how to spin pretty well first, though -- you can't break the rules until you KNOW the rules. Smiley

The Alden Amos book, I think it's the Big Book of Handspinning, is HUGE.  And in those pages are EVERY SINGLE THING you would EVER NEED TO KNOW.  And the footnotes are often hilarious.  It's pricey, but if you want to get really good, really fast, that's the one to invest in.

I heard a rumour that pippikneesocks might have a book coming out at some point.  She's in the Spin To Knit book, as a patternmaker, etc., and is on knittyspin all the time.  That's going to be one for the amazon wish list when/if the rumor proves true.

We ended up getting snowed out in January, but we met in February at Whole Foods, where we'll probably end up meeting from now on.  Attendance was light, mostly because of the threat of More Weather.  (Why it decides to snow every second Saturday, I don't know. :>)

We'll be meeting again in March, and there will be Much Discussing Of The Potential Show, depending on how many are in attendance, and whether or not we are pelted with more snow. Smiley

Hope to see you there! Smiley

*snort*  Jenn, how nice to think about his poor underfed brain when all I'm thinking is that spammers should have their heads displayed on pikes on the front lawn...


But seriously -- this probably isn't even a -person-.  They've got programs that do this FOR the spammers.  Like some underdeveloped computer weenie (no pun intended) sat around and MADE this program, just so spammers could hit a few buttons and voila!  Insta-spam on about a zillion messageboards.

It's sad, really.  And all the more reason that hunting them down for a pike-headding should occur.  Grrr!

How fabulous is THAT!?

Have you been carding up a mad streak ever since?? Smiley
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: fleece help on: January 11, 2007 11:54:17 AM
I've got to second the whole Dawn soap thing -- I've used it on the raw fleece I've got sitting here (and there's a bit -- we live next to some sheep farmers who usually just THROW IT AWAY.  They're 4-H'ers, so these are pets.  The wool's just a byproduct, can you believe it!?), and Dawn's about the only thing that will take all that nasty lanolin out of it and make it smell a little less gamey. Smiley

I've had batches, especially after a particularly cold winter (not sure if one relates to the other, but I do notice it more after a cold winter than a mild one), that take NUMEROUS dunkings and soakings.  Sometimes 24 hour soakings and then a couple of washes afterward in the bathtub.

I think it just depends on the animal.
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: What wheel do you have on: January 11, 2007 11:50:07 AM
A Lendrum single-treadle, with the optional plying head, which is HUGE.  Does like 6 to 8 ounces of fiber at a time.

I am in mad crazy love with this thing.  Crazy love.  I'd thought about getting a second one, just to have a spare, in fact.  (Not that I have either the money or the room, but it's nice to fantasize about wheelpr0n now and again.)
