OT - an oldie by Bruce Fletcher
No doubt some of you heard this whilst still in your pram but it still makes me giggle: A chap goes into a seafood restaurant and asks to see the dishes of the day. The waiter wheels over a trolley with a large tank full of various species, and the man examines the dishes. "I'll have the little...

A subject we are always interested in and hopefully drums up some responses. I'm almost finished with the bookmarks I'm making for gifts and now just have to decide how to finish the back. Should I use ribbon and should that be glued or sewed on? Should I fringe the ends of the plainer one or...

Tail Catcher by Sandy Bell
Hi everyone, I'm trying to track down something called a Tail Catcher - a great little device that allows you to use threads right down to the end (you know when the needle is too long and you can't end off) and then you use this device to pull the end through. Can't seem to find any here in Oz...
