Crafting Social

We're back for another round of crafting with Rosemary at Wando. It was so fun the first time we had to do it again! We're posting this early to give everyone enough time to come up with some ideas for projects. Check out the photos posted from the last event to get an idea of what all you can do: http://www.meetup.com/CharlestonCraftCrew/photos/18975002/#[masked]

This is a great way to make some personalized gifts, for others or youself :) And it's really inexpensive! For example, I walked out with 5 personalized items; two tote bags, a monogramed sticker, an ornament, and a cell phone case for $23.

We'll send out more info (like directions & contact info) a day or two before the event.

Here are some more details (copied from our last event):

Joy: Rosemary teaches Graphic Design at Wando High School and she's always mentioning all the awesome equipment they have access to. After pestering her for months and months, she's agreed to let us come and have some fun. This is like a crafter's mecca, you guys. There's no other place where we can go and use all these different pieces of equipment in one place. And it's free, y'all. All she asks is that we pay the small cost for whatever materials we use since these are purchased by the school. All money collected will go into the fundraiser fund for Warrior Ink, the print shop at Wando. 

Since we have a maximum of only 12 people, please only RSVP if you are definitely going to come. And if your plans end up changing, please change your RSVP ASAP, i.e. not the night before, to give someone else this awesome opportunity. 

Rosemary: Here are some of the projects we can do: 

- Make buttons. 1" and 2.25" Buttons - $0.25 each 

- Custom T-Shirts & Tote Bags - $4 to $10 each. We can print out designs or people can bring photos or paper to make their own. I keep white, black and grey standard t-shirts in stock. People can bring their own shirts to embellish, as long as they are at least 50% cotton. I suggest people search "heat transfer vinyl" on Pinterest to see what can be done.

 - Vinyl Decals - priced by size, but usually $1-$5 - We can make permanent or removable (wall) decals. We have a ton of colors. - Different projects using the Silhouette. I suggest people search "Silhouette Cameo", "Silhouette vinyl" or "Cricut vinyl" (we don't have a cricut, but it gives good results) on Pinterest to see what can be done. Here's also a link that shows some of the different kinds of projects you can do with a Silhouette: http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/what-can-you-make.

I strongly suggest that people come with an idea of what they want to do. Pinterest has a TON of great project ideas. If people come with an idea of what they want to do, we can maximize the time we have in my classroom. Three hours isn't a ton of time. If you have any questions about what you can or cannot make, just ask!

    I will also be a little later, since I am coming in from Summerville. I am not sure of the full capabilities, so I think I will stick to something simple like a tote bag this time. What size are they? Would you rec a photo or a AI file for this?

    Thanks! Looking forward to seeing you all Saturday!

    February 20, 2014

    • Joy

      Yay! Glad you're coming. Look at the photos from last time (link is in the first paragraph up the page). There are some photos of the tote bags we made. But she has a variety of sizes, from mini to rather large ones. I think either is fine, but AI is preferred.

  • Abby L.

    Ive got my AI file ready!! Im really excited. I figured I would wait till I arrived to size everything with yall, but I am thinking this will certainly make for a super cute nusery!!

    This looks really fun! If I know what sex the twins are I may see if I can come make some nursery decals!

    Hi Rosemary, I have a few questions. I would love to make a or some vinyl decals for a wall.. how big can it be? and can it have multiple colors? and how do I take the graphic? should I find the one I like online and trace it on illustrator so I save it as a vector? or can it print from an image i steal from the internet? or do I have to draw it there Saturday on some specific software that cuts the vinyl? for example I'd love this on my wall http://www.ebay.com/itm/Flying-Cherub-Wings-Angel-Wall-Art-Stickers-Wall-Decal-Transfers-/330742010687 What do I need to do or take? Thank you :)

      oh awesome, that angel for sure is wider than 12" so I guess we'll figure out how to cut him in half hehe. Thanks! I'll take it as an .ai file.

      February 7, 2014

  • Melissa M.

    I am bummed I'll be out of town but since I got to attend last time, I'm glad I'm leaving an open space for someone else to come and play. If you are free and trying to decide whether or not to go, DO IT!

    February 6, 2014

  • Abby L.

    Rosemary, If you make a wall decal, what are the size constraints?

    February 6, 2014

    • rosemary b.

      We can do 12in by however long you need it to be (up to 10 feet). However, for some designs we can go bigger if they can be cutout in pieces.

      February 6, 2014

    • Abby L.

      This is awesome I am So excited to try it out. I'll make sure I have a ai vector ready to go. No I just need to narrow down on an idea! I'm having a baby boy in April so if anyone comes across something awesome on pinterest or else where please let me know!

      February 6, 2014

  • Erin M.

    I am THRILLED that you guys are doing another one of these!! I couldn't make the last one. Thank you!!

    February 6, 2014

  • Haywood T.

    I wish I could go... my sorority is having a chili cook-off at Smoky Oak this day... I've already committed to volunteering with this event.

  • rosemary b.

    Joy mentioned her cell phone case and an ornament.

    These items aren't listed above. But, I can plan to have the equipment ready to use. We can make a lot of really awesome personalized gifts.

    If you'd like to see a catalog, here you go:
    http://www.dyetrans.com/CondeWebCatalog_20102011.pdf

    NOTE: We cannot do any mugs, water bottles or anything that is a cylinder (not until next year).

    We don't keep everything in this catalog in stock, but we have quite a bit. I can also place an order and try to get some of the items in stock before the Meetup.

    For these items, the pricing varies greatly. I can say that we are about the same price or slightly cheaper than Etsy pricing.

    I cannot express enough how important it is that you come prepared with at least an idea of what you want to do. If you aren't sure, please just ask me ahead of time and I can let you know if is doable.

    As always, if you want specific pricing information or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
