topsy turvy

oops the pics are at the wrong end, I really do need to blog more then maybe I'll get the hang of it, lol
Well I went off to the SCC in Manchester last friday, never been on friday before but it was a much more chilled atmosphere and by 2pm it was quiet enought to have a good look round, I only did one class and that was to make a purse with simply made, it was a good deal as to buy the ready made purse would have cost £22 the class was only a fiver! I spent way more than I intended but chose carefully and got some bargains from everycratsapound, including a set of My Minds Eyes stamps for £1 the exact same set is £7.99 in the range, I also bought the Tonic punching system, which I love, th rest was bits and bobs and a stack of card from payperbox.
Next craft event on my agenda is GNPE in Harrogate in march which is 3 day before my birthday so my friend is taking me to Betty's tearooms.
bye for now x

hiya chick. I have no idea what bag you are making, but you really should add a lining. i can't think I have ever made a bag without a lining. What does it say in the destructions. does it mention lining?

I can help you thru it but I need to know more about it.

email me if that is easier.

put something like Angie-bag help in the title as it will go into my junk file.

I don't know what Argos has to offer, or what price range you are looking at. But i would recommend Janome machines every time. I do believe that John Lewis does a machine that has the John Lewis name on it but is in fact made by Janome.

Janome do basic machines right up to super duper complicated ones. Mine has around 23 stitches on it and cost £350 around 8 yrs ago.

I wouldn't go for absolute basic, if you can afford a litle more, then do get the automatic buttonhole and a few extra stitches. Don't rush into it though. Do a bit of research and give yourself a shorlist of maybe 6 machines and then just wait for one to be on offer somewhere.

I bought mine at a harrogate show, as it had a 'show' price.
