ATTN. CRAFT-ISTAS! does anyone have 1 yard (or less) of furry, fuzzy, fluffy, or fringy type trim they wouldn't mind donating to the Mad Mab's Lab of Experimental Circus Crafting. I want to get a good cross section sample to see what works best for my circus punk project.

I'm working on a mockup of a new circus punk design, and I want to try out different trims. Historically, feathers were used. I found a nice source for ostrich feather trim, but I don't want to drop the ton of cash until I know that it's the right thing

When I have some free time, the plan is to make the trek out to the fabric store to see what they have. but I really doubt they have feather trim at a reasonable price.

hey yarnies, have you ever blocked a hat?

my latest hat is a little lumpy and needs blocking love. the only blocking instructions I can find online are for stetsons and fedoras and involve expensive wooden hat blocks (which I may invest in someday)

pics will happen soon.

Hey friends,

I'm hoping you can help spread the word about some exciting goings on with The DC Conspiracy comic collective (

First of all, the group is holding it's 4th annual Counter Culture Fest on Sunday, May 24, at the Soundry in Vienna, VA. It's a day of comics, art, crafts, education, and entertainment, details of which can be found here:

CCF4 also marks the print debut of the DCC's latest publication, "Doctor Dremo's Taphouse of Tall Tales and Short Stories: The Horrors of War." The writers and artists from the previous Dremo anthology, "The Wonders of Science," will be on hand once again to sign and sell this new 72-page black-and-white book. And "The Horrors of War" is also available to anyone interested who cannot make CCF4, via ComixPress:

If you're on Facebook, please feel free to check out the Doctor Dremo group for more on the book and the event.
