21  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Trying to find local kiln on: April 24, 2009 02:38:07 PM

 I'm trying to find out how to find a local kiln to use, but I'm not having any luck with Google searches. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to find out if one is available?

 Thank you!
22  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / New venue for sewing classes, etc! (Durham) on: March 15, 2009 10:42:29 PM
Hello Triangle-ans (Triangle-ites),

 There's a cool place opening in Durham (off Miami Blvd exit from 40) called TechShop. They have a sewing room with 2 "regular" sewing machines, an embroidery machine, a serger, and an industrial sewing machine. The place also has MIG, TIG, and Oxy-acetylene welding, a woodworking shop, machine shop, area to work on your cars, electronics shop, and a bunch of other stuff. They offer classes for all the machines and you can buy memberships so you have access to use everything (I think you need to take safety classes for the machines first).

 The big opening is Saturday March 21st and they will have food and demos. All the info is on their page. I'm super excited about having access to a serger without the investment!

 I hope to meet some fellow Craftsters there Smiley

23  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What was I thinking?! A lap quilt debacle on: December 22, 2008 10:54:48 AM
 It worked perfectly! I tried to take pictures, but of course, the camera won't do what I tell it to. My only issue was that I neglected to even up the quilt top with the batting and so one side ended up having a bigger seam allowance to make up for it. I just trimmed it once I was done, though.

 Thank you again for all the help!

 You saved the day for sure! Thank you SO much! This has been driving me batty for weeks.
25  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / What was I thinking?! A lap quilt debacle on: December 21, 2008 12:16:42 AM
 A year ago I took a class and the instructor assured me that for a lap quilt (especially a first one I was terrified of binding) I could put a strip of fusible web on the wrong side of the backing fabric, cut a slit in it, and then sew all 4 sides and turn it right side out. Sounds great except now I can't figure out the order and sides to sandwich together to make the flip work.

 Ex: do I layer wrong side of backing fabric to the right side of topper, then place the batting? So confused!

 Is this even really do-able? No one I've talked to has ever heard of this technique. Any input is appreciated!

 Every tea drinker is different. I tend to adore herbal teas, but stay away from more traditional teas. Lately, I have been loving yerba mate teas which have a ton of health benefits. Guayaki is my favoritehttp://www.guayaki.com/.

 Good Earth brand teas have a line of medicinal teas that are awesome. If your friends like herbal teas, there are so many awesome options out there. I suggest looking around the net or a local tea shop and just seeing what looks fun!

 Good luck!
27  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: I finally resolved to buy proper kitchen implements on: December 04, 2008 06:58:34 PM
 Personally, I heart All-Clad pots & pans (stainless steel is truly the way to go), Le Creuset casserole dishes, Wusthof knives and good sturdy cast iron skillets. If you decide to only really splurge in one area, good knives are (as was already said) indispensable. Life is SO much easier with them. Cast iron skillets are amazing because they are so versatile and simple to take care of (there's an entire thread in here about them you can check out for more info).

 Hurray for upgrading!

Beautiful results! I can't believe that's from your first project! Color me jealous of your skill Smiley
29  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Bacon recipes! on: November 20, 2008 11:15:04 PM
 Bacon pie sounds awesome! Are there any special things you should do to keep the bacon from sticking to the pie pan? I would assume since there's so much fat in bacon that it would kind of keep itself from sticking, but I'm not sure of the logistics on that.

 My b/f gave my the glorious Bacon Cookbook which has only encouraged me in all things bacon related. So I ask, what is your favorite bacon recipe?

 Mine is one developed in conjunction with my ex. Neither of us measure so here's a rough guestimate.

 In a 9x13 pan slice new potatoes about 1/2" thick to cover the bottom. Then layer with 8 oz saurkraut, 6 oz pancetta, and 1 med/large sauteed vidalia onion. Then another layer of 1/2" thick new potato slices and 3 oz shredded Raclette cheese. Bake at 350 til melted. Serve with salt & pepper.

 *Note:It is similar to the actual Swiss dish called Raclette. I advise sampling the cheese before buying it as it is a bit much for some peoples' taste buds.
