to gocco or not to gocco…. July 23, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — kitschcraft @ 10:40 am

I REALLY want a gocco machine… i was wondering does anyone have one and are they worth getting?
They have stopped producing them now, so they are quite hard to get hold of, i have found a supplier in the US but it will be about £150 so i need to know if they are really as cool as they look. For those of you who dont know what i am on about, click here….

Ooooh, hang on a minute – check that out, i just embedded a link!!! for the FIRST TIME EVER!! woooo!

ok….back to the gocco…..
It’s basically a really cool little screen printer.
Annnnnd, more advice please! I also want to get an embroidery sewing machine that will do my own designs as well as words etc. Can anyone recommend a cheapish one? I have my eye on some on ebay…..
I have crafty plans afoot! My mum mentioned the other day that she would love to give up work soon and run a craft business from home, she takes the most amazing photos. I used to own a craft shop a few years ago, but gave it up to move to london and follow different dreams, but now i think it would be great to try and help her start up something.
anyway, i would really appreciate your thoughts!!!
take care

    YES! I think it’s totally worth it! I’ve had mine for 2 years now & am still in love with it. Even though they have stopped making them & the supplies may be stopped by the end of this year there are many people that are trying new ways to make screens & I know there are a few that are working on converting their units into electrical ones that won’t need the bulbs. So in my opinion it would be worth getting the machine & all those smart gocco’ers out there will figure out a way for us to have all the supplies we need!

    Hi Jo
    Sorry I know nothing about goccos. I probably know more about geckos, and that’s not much. But I love the idea of a craft shop.
    A posh sewing machine is something I have looked into too, but they are so expensive. Even second hand ones achieve high prices on Ebay whenever I’ve looked.
