2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re:Sewing Machine Help!! on: January 16, 2004 03:35:16 PM
When I went looking for an affordable sewing machine, I found out that Baby Lock makes sewing machines, not just sergers. I have been *extremely* happy with my Baby Lock Design Pro 21 which I bought for $284 at a sewing machine store in Tulsa, Oklahoma (where I lived at the time).

I chose that particular machine because of the price, the size of the arm opening (the distance between the top and bottom of the machine), and I just liked the way it felt. You should definitely drive the machine before you buy.

My machine came with a year's free service and the option to attend a class where they would teach you to use all the machine's functions. I didn't attend the class, but only because I couldn't fit it into my schedule.

You can get it at craft stores... here they have it at both Michael's and Joanns. Walmart carries it in their craft section too.

I LOVE that you have paint on your hands in the photo! That cracks me up!  Grin
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re:Know anything about grommets? on: December 15, 2003 03:43:47 PM
How thick is your book cover?

You basically have to get grommets that have a long enough stem to go through the thickness of whatever you are grommeting, plus enough to create a flange on the back side. So if your book cover was 1/4" thick, you'd probably want a grommet with a 1/2" stem.

You can buy small grommets at craft stores (mostly used for a couple of thicknesses of fabric or paper), but to buy "industrial size" grommets you might have to dig around online.

You could also make grommets if you were really motivated. Smiley

You could try finishing the edges with foil tape - like for stained glass.  One side of the foil is adhesive, so you just center it on the edge, and then wrap over the edges. Burnish using the back of a spoon.

You should be able to find it in both copper and silver.

I would be really careful about mixing the etching cream with any other chemical substance. The etching cream is pretty caustic (ammonium/sodium bifluorides), which of course is why it starts 'chewing through' the glass in the first place. What if the etching cream reacted with liquid mask and caused a mini-mushroom cloud? That'll ruin your day Smiley

On the other hand, maybe nothing would happen. I can't find a list of ingredients on the liquid mask I have here, so there's no telling what's in it. Even if it didn't react, I'd be worried that the etching cream would eat right through the mask.

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re:non-cheesy scrapbooks on: November 24, 2003 08:23:36 PM
i have all this stuff that i save, movie stubs, random pictures, programs, cards, and art from my elementary school students, and i'm sick of them just being in a bunch of boxes

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but if you save movie ticket stubs, you might want to jot down what movie it was. (What do they call that? Journaling?) I can't read a lot of the stubs that I have from several years ago now, so I'm lucky to have notes about what the movie was (and who I saw it with) next to the ticket. Seems dumb to have a ticket stub "memory" but not be able to remember what the movie was!

Wow, these are sweet! What kind of magnet are you putting on the back?

Also, what kind of glue do you recommend using to stick the magnet to the bottle cap with? Everything I've ever tried tends to fall off after a while...
