1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / customers that leave a bad taste in your mouth? on: February 14, 2005 01:12:04 PM
i want to just cry! i had my first bad experience with a customer, and was super disappointed and frustrated. i worry that i didn't handle it well. i just know that i am the singular person looking out for me and my business, so i stood up for myself. what do you guys do when this happens? if you have had these experiences often, what have you learned over time?

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / molly ringwald! on: October 21, 2004 06:48:12 PM
I'm going to be Molly Ringwald for Halloween because I've absolutely adored her since the early 80's.
It seems like every Halloween I want to be her, and I just recently dyed my hair red, so it's the perfect timing.
Someone I know thinks that no one will get it, so I want to know:

what do you all think are major characteristics I should incorporate into my costume to make it recognizable?

Thanks so much for any input!
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / drawing fluid method=oh nooooooo!!!!! on: September 20, 2004 08:49:25 AM
I've been attempting to do silkscreening using my speedball kit. I've been using the drawing fluid method, and am having no luck. Whenever I apply the screen filler over the drawing fluid, the drawing fluid just disolves. And all of my hard work goes down the drain, literally, as I then have to wash everything out of the screen. It is really driving me crazy. This happens even after letting the drawing fluid dry for days.

Does anyone have any tips for me? I'm thinking of maybe spraying the screen filler onto the screen, using a pump spray bottle? Maybe this will be better than using the sqeegee (sp?). As it will be less agitation to the drawing fluid?

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / boys, i need your advice. on: September 16, 2004 03:32:29 PM

I am planning to make some nifty wallets for my guy friends and customers, as they are requesting them.
Of course if I ask what they want them to look like, they have no idea.
So, if I were to embroider icons onto the outside of the wallet, what would be 'not too girly'?
Also, can anyone measure their bi-fold wallet for me? I don't know the dimensions of one.

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / how do i get on search engines? on: August 03, 2004 07:54:01 AM
this is probably a lame question, but i really have no idea about this stuff.

how do i get my web page to come up on search engines?

are there other ways to advertise on the web, or to make my site more accessible?

this is all new to me, so any advice would be great!

thanks, melissa
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Shipping and packaging? on: July 29, 2004 02:27:18 PM
i'm starting an online company selling my handmade bags.
one thing i'd love your opinions on is:

if you paid around $30-50 for a handbag, how would you expect it to be packaged?

i've considered using brown paper, or tissue paper as wrapping/padding?
i'm just not sure what is expected.
your opinions would be greatly appreciated!

thanks, melissa
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / does anyone know how to make this skirt? on: July 15, 2004 03:21:03 PM
i saw this skirt at Club Monaco today, but I would never pay for it, way too expensive. i'm just starting to make clothing, and want to make this skirt. does anyone have any advice. i can't seem to find a pattern like it. all i can find are vintage skirt patterns similar, but who wants to pay $20 for a pattern?  thanks you guys! oh yeah, if you go to clubmonaco.com, it's the ALMA skirt.
http://www.clubmonaco.com/ then to womens.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Speedstitch.com on: July 05, 2004 08:18:46 AM
hey everyone. i'm pretty new here and this is my first post.
everyone seems so smart and helpful, so i thought i might ask your advice.
i was wondering if anyone has ever ordered from speedstitch.com?
i recently ordered some transfer markers on their website. the problem is, they charged my credit card immediately, yet never sent me an order confirmation, or my order. and i cannot seem to get a hold of anyone at their posted phone number except for the "cleaning guy".

has this happened to anyone?
what can you do?
any other sites to warn about?
