    Now, now. No calling people lazy, even if they are, like me. I viewed it, but;

    A) I need help with starting a lightsaber of my own and don't have much skills with using tools and such and;

    B) It would be easier to judge what's needed by seeing it in person. Bring it to the workshop if you are coming and I'm sure you'll be given some ideas then.

    Bad news- I may not be able to come.

    Good news- all my costume needs is a bit of Velcro.

    Bad news- I can't be there to measure out where the Velcro should be put.

    Good news- I can put chalk after trying it on at home.

    Bad news- chances are, you won't be working on my costume if I'm not there.

    Good news-

    Whoops. Slipped into a pattern there.

    That's my predicament. Any suggestions, or should I just plan to see you guys next at the picnic (which I'll do anyways, but any suggestions of what to do while I'm not there)?

    ok, the costume workshop is still on. Its going to be at fayetteville library which has moved.
    The new library is at 300 orchard st in fayetteville.
    its only open from 10-2 pm so we need to be there on time.

    I am bringing the sewing machine and I have some jedi fabric about 10 yards available for anyone who needs to purchase it at that time.
    Does anyone need any muslin?
    If you need a specific color or fabric pm me so I can have it there for you.

    See everyone there.

    I would like a Jedi outfit, but don't know what it requires. I'm also not up much on sewing terms. I don't know what muslin is. I don't really have much of an idea of how much 10 yards of material is. If you think I should bring specific material, let me know. My plan is to look for a sewing machine with my daughter on Thursday. I plan to bring both it and her on Saturday, although it appears Arjuna won't be there. I can look for material on Thursday if I know what to get.

    (Help!)

    Sounds like you guys had a blast. Man, you really had me going, telling me it was a workshop! Could've fooled me ?[face_plain]

    Lol... well, just the same, sorry I couldn't make it.

    Well....we could have accomplished more, but there was a bit of confusion. However, we had lunch and enjoyable conversations. Then after filling our bellies we got down to some general creative thinking and planning. I accomplished a bit toward getting a costume and we made plans for the next meeting. Unless things change, the next meeting probably will be in two weeks (7/26) at 12:00, since there were snags in getting a place for the picnic that date. However, I'll let Strawbary tell more about that when she gets the chance.

    Also, us seasoned veterans of the Salt City Jedi (OK, so I've been a member about a month) got to meet a couple of new members. they are not on theforce.net yet, but I expect they will be soon.

    As far as I understand it, costumes aren't for regular meetings (was the first thing I asked for our first meeting). They're for conventions and special occasions. Wouldn't want to get food all over your tunic, now, would you?

    The pattern was a gift. So, you can use it as many times as you like. I have another one for my next costume.

    Thank you, Karate. I already knew that, but apparently Raef didn't. I may save it to use again, or I may decide the best way to use a gift when you are done with it is to gift it to another. Giving things goes a long way toward friendship and trust (as you have demonstrated).

    I believe Arjuna was right though, my understanding is that costumes are not for general meetings. Incidentally, the way it looks now is that Raef and myself will be at the 7/26 meeting. Arjuna may be working again. I am not sure about Vishnu.

    I thought the workshop was fine. Everyone has to remember that when you go to any event you need to "check in" to find out where you need to go. ;)

    We met a few members and they got alot of great ideas for costumes and we went over patterns and material.
    The next workshop can be getting more "sewn" however, workshops can be whatever, sewing, ideas, etc......

    I think alot more was accomplished than everyone thinks ;)
