xstillxframex10:23pm: Hey hope this is okay...

I'm just doing an intro post first.
I'm Kristi and I am going to be a freshman at Moco this coming fall :-) I love to craft, make jewelry and all that goodness. I was really excited to see that there is a craft community at Moravian College! :D

I hope to get to know some of you soon!

affectionjunkie7:12pm: time to rep-pre-sent!

Yo yo MoCo Crafters!  This lady is looking for submissions for her DIY newsletter, and Infigure since we are such a crafty bunch of MoFos, we could all probably get stuff in it.  I already did a submission about yarn-recycling, so try it and let's see what happens:

more info and an e-mail from the editorCollapse )

w_e_n_d_y7:21pm: Massages, Music, and Food!
Take a break from your endless studying, and come relax at the library tomorrow night. From 7-11 in the coffeeshop (lower level of the library), we'll have free massages, live jazz and blues music, and lots and lots of free food.

No strings attached... no lectures, no scary librarian information, no research questions or anything. Just hang out and veg, get those kinks in your shoulders worked out, and stuff your face to your heart's content!
Current Mood: bouncy

affectionjunkie10:12am: final crafting party for the year? Maybe an outside crafting picnic? Everyone's thoughts?

Next year, 263 west greenwhich can be the official moco crafters hiz-ouse.

If we become a real group, Wendy you could be our advisor! (if WRMC isn't too overwhelming)

reallycoolguy3:48pm: rock is out
so, what's everyone think about making this a real club. it involves writing a constitution, but then we can also get usg funding. that money could buy supplies and stuff. we'd be like knitwits, but we'd do more than knit and crochet and keep everything for ourselves.

i also think that the president of mococrafters should be chosen through conclave.

or, it could be decided through a craft off.
Current Mood: happy

affectionjunkie10:18am: for enrique (and also Luke I guess)
"During the Middle Ages the famous "knitters' guilds" - which were, of course, composed entirely of men - brought the art of knitting to a very high degree of refinement. A young man who wished to become a member of such a guild had to serve as an apprentice to a Master Knitter for a mimimum of three years, and spend another three years in travel, learning foreign techniques and patterns. After this he had to pass a grueling examination, knitting a number of original "masterpieces" of his own in a very short time, and then was admitted to the guild as a Master in his own right. The men of these guilds made exquisite garments that were worn by kings and princes, and every member of the nobility had his or her favorite Master Knitter, as well as a favorite tailor or dressmaker.

The time-honored tradition that knitting is a manly art, rather than, or as well as, a womanly one, still persists in areas of northern Europe and the British Isles....The men of the Aran Isles in Ireland, who made their own "ganseyes" or jerseyes...believed that it was the duty of women to spin the wool, but the privilege of men to knit it. It is possible that at various times knitting has been considered an unwomanly activity, just as more recently such things as smoking or wearing pants were considered unwomanly."

affectionjunkie2:32pm: WTF
WARNING: if you crochet or knit at the organizational fair, at least  7 people will come up and ask you if you are in charge of knitwits.  I explained that we had our own crafting circle since september.  I don't know yet what our official MOCO Crafter stance is on this new group.  Shall we spy, join, pillage?
