Intro [Mar. 3rd, 2008|10:09 am]
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Stitch'n'bitch - Brisbane ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Name: Toni  

Age: 43

Location (you can be as specific or as brief as you like here): Lowood, QLD

What you create: Jewellery, primarily using Copper, Sterling Silver and gemstones

Crafts you would be interested in trying: There aren't many I haven't tried.  Perhaps weaving maybe with beads, I've got the program!!

Any other ideas or random input:

 I get bored really easily hence the having tried a whole heap of crafts.  I really don't think I dislike any of them but I know I'm no painter!!!
Oh and just so you know, I'm English by Birth, married to an American I met on a scuba diving holiday to Vanuatu!!  We're both Aussie now as are our 2 gorgeous children

You have to love the holidays lots of time for making things :-)

I decided to do another intro as I discovered my last one was from 2005, and very out of date! I can't believe I've been in this group that long.

Name: Cam

Age: 23

What you create: I love knitting. I currently make mostly wearable items for myself because I have difficulty finding pre-made warm things that I like. I also want to start embroidering again. I've ordered some crewel wool. I also make very basic earrings when I find beads that I like.

Crafts you would be interested in trying: I want to learn to crochet so I can make amigurumi. I also want to start making some clothes.

Introducing meself [Feb. 18th, 2008|11:52 am]
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Stitch'n'bitch - Brisbane ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Following kittycat_black's call, I thought I should introduce myself!

Name: Alas, I can't give you my name as I am also vasco_pyjama, and Vasco is an evil anonymous journal. Thusly, you can just call me The Nutter.

Age: 34

Location (you can be as specific or as brief as you like here): Canberra for now, but I have a tendency to drift. And yes, I do go to the Canberra Stitch n Bitch.

What you create: A multitude of fibrely things... I spin, knit, crochet and weave. The finished products are usually items of clothing (such as beanies, gloves, socks, cardis, jumpers, scarves etc) or bags.

Crafts you would be interested in trying: Hmmm... perhaps sewing. And making knitting miniatures.

Any other ideas or random input: I want an angora rabbit so that I can sit it on my lap and slowly feed it to my spinning wheel...

Just thought I'd post a public entry here to remind you guys that if you've only added this community to friends but not joined it then you will be missing most of the posts because most of them are posted for community members only to see.

Anyone new to LJ can join the community by clicking on the "To join this community, click here." bit at the top of the info page.

I've updated the member introduction links on the info page so you can all see who has joined this group. If yours says 'No intro yet.' feel free to add your introductory entry to the community here.

Seems like there's quite a few of us now and we've had some awesome meet ups so far! :D I'm really pleased with how it's all going.

Also if any of you want to organise get togethers of your own you're very welcome to. At this stage I'm pretty much only doing a Friday night meet up at my place every month or so but if anyone wants to organise a daytime thing or something more frequent that'd be great too.

PS - I haven't bolded things in this text because I think you're morons... I just figure a lot of people like to skim and it might help you get the gist of paragraphs without reading them. Aren't I helpful! :P

Friday night... [Feb. 17th, 2008|12:24 am]
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Stitch'n'bitch - Brisbane ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Hey guys thanks for coming along on Friday night I had a great night as usual. :) I'm really glad I set this group up!

Cam I'm sorry I forgot to fix your earrings! If you bring them next time I promise I will remember this time. Too much talking distracted me I think! lol

Anyway looking forward to the next get together. I probably won't be able to have the next one for a number of weeks but it'll definitely happen. If anyone else wants to arrange a get together in the meantime by all means go right ahead! :D
