sewing with music

bonkers | Posted in Gather For A Chat on

Gosh, don`t you young ladies know the only music to sew by is ELVIS!!!!

    Hey Bonkers,

    Elvis didn't get a personal mention. Maybe the members who love the 50's music included him also in thought.

    I guess it's time to get out those Blue Suede Shoes and have some Fun in Acapulco with Frankie and Johnny.

    After all that excitement I feel A little less conversation and a little more action (sewing) is needed in my House that has everything.

      Sorry, but Josh Groban takes the cake - and he takes my breath away, such a cutie! My husband got us tickets to go see him in concert for our anniversary!! can't wait, 3 more weeks

        Who? I need to google this guy!

        Found him, no i've never heard of him or his music. He just had his birthday too 27Feb.  Yes, he is attractive and does a lovely voice. Thanks for sharing him. Enjoy the concert.

      Hey Cherrypops, Talk about a coincidence!! I was listening to "A Little More Action" when I clicked on your letter! I was 15 years old when Elvis  made his first appearance on T.V. so that tells you I saw him through the thick and thin!! Still my favorite after all these years. Sewing is really more relaxed with some music on. Even the cows do better with some tunes in the barn. Today I am making a blouse to go with my Chanel jacket I finished with you girls advice. Turned out real good. Haven`t started the second one yet. The weather is terrible here in nothern Indiana, a good day to sew! Hope it is warm where you are. Bonkers

    My favorite is his song that goes; "treat me like a fool, treat me mean and cruel, but love me". He was a looker!Marcy

      Don`t you wonder what he would look like now? Probably as old as some of his fans!! I always wished I could get in on sewing some of those great jumpsuits! Or to work at the Metropolitan Opra on the fancy costumes they wear. Oh well, too late now.  The snow is blowing a blizzard here. Good time for some hand sewing by the heat register! Bonk.

    I guess I'm in the minority, but I like to listen to the news, or my pod-casts, or a book on tape. I play the guitar, so when I listen to music, I end up picking it apart and it distracts me. Weird... but I love the pod-casts though. I listen to "Pottercast" (harry potter stuff) I listen to, lost pod-cast, (tv show) I get, the "Thomas Jefferson Hour" (historical) "12 Byzantine Rulers" very cool set of lectures) "Astronomy 161" (an actual college course for free on itunes) all kinds of shows about cooking and scrapbooking, I wish that someone would make a pod-cast about sewing.... but no good ones. Then there are all the great stories. Serial pod-casts that come out once a week. The narrator either reads a book in the public domain, like "Anne of Green Gables", or "Robinson Crusoe", or is a story that they wrote, like "Pirate Jack" (for kids) or my new favorite "The Secret World Chronicle". What is really great about all of this stuff is that it's FREE. Completely FREE! I don't watch TV so I guess pod-casts make up for it. But if you are really stuck on music, you can use itunes to get radio stations from around the WORLD! for FREE! Technology amazes me.

      It amazes me, also. I love the shows Anne Of Green Gables. They have podcast about sewing on sewing.patternreviews.com. Have you looked there? How do you get itunes? I have a mp3 player. I would like to listen to different stations.Marcy

        Oh yes! itunes is a free download! from here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ It's a program (application for mac users like me) so once you get it downloaded and up and running, on the left hand side of your screen will be a list of things that you have stored on your computer... such as Music, Movies, TV Shows, Pod-casts, etc... also Radio if you click on the word radio you can choose from a list of genres. If you click on the iTunes Store you can surf around and find tons of pod-casts and other things for free...there are things to buy too! (don't get addicted like me!) its way to easy to think of some band of TV show, buy it and have it, and then your shocked when you see you spend $150 on movies and other downloads from iTunes! Like I said the Audiobooks really get me. I hope you like it! -Twila

            Yes I have an imac, and my husband has an ibook, we are both mac users, but itunes is also available for pc users so don't worry if you use an ibm machine. Thank you also for the link. I've put it in my favorites list and will think about joining! -Twila

        I tried to find the podcast you were talking about on sewing.patternreviews.com but..... do you have a more direct link? I would really love to be able to listen to a sewing pod-cast. - Thanks - Twila

        1. Cherrypops | | #11

          From reading this discussion both you and marcy are interested in Podcasts, I have started a new discussion Sewing Podcasts just for podcast discussion and website links.

          When i find more I will add more.



        2. fabricholic | | #13

          I am a member and you might have to buy a membership. Look on the left side when you get into sew.patternreview.com and look for the sewing podcast. Here is a link http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/podcast.plMarcyto Cherry Pops: I couldn't pull up Twila Tee in the new discussion. I tried.

          1. Cherrypops | | #15

            Thanks for trying. I tried and couldn't see her name. So I clicked on Others and typed it in the name bar and that worked.

            If I find more links i'll add them to the podcast discussion. You both keep chatting away!

            I don't have an ipod, I just use the pc or listen to my cd's in the lounge with surround sound. (all the neighbours have a paid 9-5 job. I get paid in hugs!)



          2. fabricholic | | #16

            Aha, so that is how you do it. I will go to others next time.Marcy

          3. Cherrypops | | #17

            Provided you spell the name correctly it works. I usually have two forums open to double check.


          4. fabricholic | | #18

            I don't have an ipod. I have a mp3 player. Don't know if this will work. I will see.Marcy

          5. Cherrypops | | #19

            I wanted an mp3 player. but hubby wouldn't get me one, says i don't need one because I can download and save mp3files to my computer and listen to them on the pc while i work. When I get enough mp3s I save them to cd and listen to them on the cd/dvd player.

            hubby has the creative zen (model?) transfers all my cd's and listens at work.

            An 'ipod' is mp3 player it is the brand name for Apples digital music player ( mp3 player).

            mp3 players are great to have. Stores so many files.


          6. fabricholic | | #20

            I haven't had mine long and yes, another manual to read. Some how I managed to download some of my Christmas songs on it, but I really don't care to listen to that. It has a radio on it, which is pretty cool at work. I put on ear bud in my ear and answer the phone using my other ear. My co-worker has one and has taught me a couple of things. I am trying to figure out how to put the ipod sewing stuff in the right place so that I can put it on mp3 player. I started trying it last night and had to go to bed, so I didn't quite figure it out. I have it downloaded, but probably not at the right spot. Thanks for the website about sewing. I know I will like it, once I figure it out.Marcy
