    When I was a kid I would visit a cousin who married a man who had cows and I always enjoyd going around with him doing chores/ milking. Then we would head back in for a nice breakfast.
    I got a fevah! And the only cure is more cowbell!!!

      How does that affect the thread? If at all.

        Not at all, I watch my iron settings and place a dry washcloth in between while ironing.

            If my stuff is too thin I glue layers together or glue a tracing to stiff felt. I've tried lots of materials and I keep coming back to stiff felt, tacky glue. I recently started backing with ultra suede though because I just love how it finishes! My state fair entry needed a large backing and it needed to be white white so I got the ultra suede. And you can get a needle through it so easily.. Which is awesome if you have carpal tunnel or arthritis. Makes edge beading a breeze!

              This is my first post. I've been lurking for a while, but registered so I could let you know about the Pellon for beading. I just got some Pellon stabilizer at Walmart this week. You want the Pellon #926. It's called "extra firm" and is pretty sturdy. They have so many different kinds. I hope that helps for next time.

                by Suzizila
                Hello all of you crafty people......I'm back, after not posting for a long while. Just last week, I went to a store on the east side of Cincinnati, where there were all sorts of traditional supplies.....one being real sinew. I had never tried using real sinew & thought I would give it a try. Has...

                Help with Deer Skin
                by AnnJolie
                I have a deer skin with Chief Red Eagle painted on it. It is very old it was my grandfathers and I inherited it. I'm not sure of the age of the painting. If my grandfather was alive today he would be 112 years old. It needs to be put on a wood branch frame and stretched. I live near LeRoy, IL where...

                Mineral/Earth Paints
                by powwowbum49
                Ok everyone how do you all work with mineral/earth paints on leather? Do you use it dry or mix it with water or maybe oil? How do you keep it from spreading when working near it? Inquiring minds want to know!

                Different backing materials for different uses
                by momme
                Ok so i have made the leap and found that while i'm not great yet i really enjoy doing beadwork. I've read a lot of the posts on different backings for different uses (breathable vs leather), but need opinions on what to back a piece with if it's going to be used on clothing.
                I am working on...
