Bought a second hand wheel yesterday.  I have had to jerry rig a scorth tensioner as it didnt have one.  This has helped a little but having trouble balancing tensions on bobbin and wheel.  Are the bobbins supposed to spin freely on the flywheel when not under tension as the bobbins seem to be rather tight fitting on it at the moment. Also what is best to use as a belt on the wheel as it didnt come with one
4  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / AG ART AUSTRALIA - New Blog on: November 21, 2011 01:09:46 PM
Hi to all you crafty Australians.  I have started a blog for Ag Art in Australia.  Why not pop on over and check it out.  Only in the beginning stages but would love some feedback, new members and of course would love to have some Ag Arters on board as well.  Check it out at  www.agartaustralia.blogspot.com . Hope that I can get sponsors on board to actually run an online competition in the future.

And even more I love that there's an international Ag Art competition! Is it only Australia and NZ, or do other countries send entries?

My understanding is - The gentleman who started the Ag Art movement in NZ over ten years ago is trying to get other countries involved.  Would be great to have entrants from all over the world.  If anyone is interested in hosting an Ag Art show please contact me and I can get the  contact information for you.

Hi Craftsters, Been a long while since I was here but thought I would share my latest crafting effort with you.  I entered the following garment into the Elmore Ag Art competition that was held at the start of this month.  Some clarification on that last sentance may be needed. Elmore is a country town in Victoria Australia. Ag Art, is a wearable art garment made from items found around or produced on the farm.  There are quite a few Ag Art shows held at different agricultural shows in Victoria, NSW and SA.  All the winners from these smallers shows gather at Elmore for the Australian Nationals on the afternoon of the last day of the show.

My garment Renewal, shows the ending of the ten year drought that has stricken our area, with the rain coming from the clouds (headpiece) and filling the rivers, and water flowing over the dry drought affected earth and turning it green, flowers regrowing etc.  It is constructed from shade cloth, milk filters, tails paint and blue hayband.  There must be over 1000 seperate pieces on the train alone.  It took me approx 5 weeks to complete.

There are three different sections to show in, under 21, Designer and Avante Gaurde.  Renewal was entered into the Designer section of the Elmore Show, and won - WOW.  It then went on to compete in the national show in the afternoon against several other garments and won there as well - Double WOW - so now I am over to New Zealand in June next year to compete against top designers over there.  I had no expectations of being a major winner as this was the first time I had entered and there where so many wonderful/beautiful garments on show.

I am now hooked and have started on next years entries, found out I can do two garments in each section - designer and avante guarde -  so will have plenty of time to fine tune any mistakes or design flaws.  If anyone in Australia is interested in finding out more feel free to send a PM.  Anyway hope you enjoyed my story and the pics

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My Uncles Wig on: July 29, 2009 06:00:47 AM
Hi everyone, OMG it has been so long since I have been here.  I thought that it might be appropriate to update this link and to let everyone who offered prayers and well wishes for my Uncle know what has been happening.  Sadly my uncle passed away this year after a long illness with mouth cancer.  He is sadly missed by his family and friends and members of the online Mouth Cancer Foundation community. My uncle had such a positive impression on the members of the MCF that they have formed a Trev's International Fan Club, they even have an official tshirt featuring Trevor wearing his wig.  My Aunt is travelling to London in September to participate in the MCH's 10klm fundraising walk in Hyde Park, and is working hard collecting donations, running dinners, raffles land auctions. My aunt has a blog for those who would like to see how things are going
Thankyou all once again for the prayers and wishes, I know that my aunt speaks fondly of the craftsters and has appreciated your responses grreatly.

I love that the green bin liners are mint scented, so you can smell fresh and clean for the wedding! lol

Let me just say one thing about mint scented bags. Yuck - tho at first it was tolerable after hitting them with some heat (aka iron) and handling them for the construction the smell was horrible.  My hands and craft room room smelt very minty for days afterwards

I loooove the bustle-y train back, it's a great colour.
What a great back!  I love how it's not the traditional all white wedding gown!

The back is my fav bit as well, and I wanted to use different colours in the construction as well.  I figured that with an all white dress, that you wouldn't be able to see much detail.  The cloths used for the corset actually have a geen logo printed on them (on the inside 0f the corset) but you can faintly see it through the fabric (close up) so that is where the inspiration for the colour came from

D-a-a-a-h-h-h-ling  - even Jeannie would be impressed!!!

Oh I hope so - lol

Thanks everyone for the positive comments and of course don't forget to vote

couldn't help myself.  I loved this skirt so much that I had to make one for myself.  Rarely do I make stuff for me as I am never ever really happy with it.  Not much changed this time.  Although I love the skirt, and I have worn it with compliments.  My machine gathering played up and I have some really ultra tight gathering on this sucker the outcome being, more fabric than the first one and a bit heavier to wear.  But it does have a very nice swish and bounce to the skirt.  Summer is coming so it will have to be put away for nightime and cooler days.

Supermodel (not) pose

Just the skirt
