I claim cheshyre! Went to the fabric market, but spend less than expected so I can swap again!

I, Javede, am approved and live in Germany and this is my second claim, none send.

This is my list of countries in no paricluar order though there are numbers  Wink
1. Asia: anything cute, fabric, sweets, magazines or craft books, stationary
2.France: sewing supplies, children books, magazines(I learned french in school and would like to see
how much I still remember)
3. USA: knitting/crochet/sewing magazines, yarn(Knitpicks would be nice), these
cookies
(I so LOVE them!), cute/printed cotton fabric
4.UK: craft/cross stitch magazines, yarn, thanks sophieangele!
5. Japan: cute stationary, Hello Kitty related items
6. any other than my own, really

Ok, a bit more info and for inspiration:
-I like almost all colors except yellow and orange(of course totally ok if they are related to your country).
-I don't wear jewelry most of the time and my ears are not pierced!
-I like cute things but wouldn't mind for example skully fabric.
-It would be wonderfull if you could include some postcards cause I collect them. They could show photos of the country/area you are from but also ones with text in your language.
-Oh, and I do a whole lot of crafts and supplies for those are always apreciated ;-) I knit, crochet, sew and spin mostly.
-Though I love candy and sweets(who doesn't?) please don't send too much. I don't eat much candy and eventhough my brother was quite happy last time he got candy from one of my swap packages, he surely eats enough sweets already ;-)
-Music from your neck of the woods would be cool too! I listen to almost any kind of music!
-No heavy scented stuff please I'm pretty sensitive to scents. No other allergies though.

Random question: can you get Rebecca knitting magazine in the states or is it only available in Europe? I keep seeing people from the states post things they've made out of it but I can never find it here!

I did a little google search and it seems to be available in some US online shops, but it costs around 16$  Shocked Almost tripple of what the german version costs here!
If you want I could try to get the latest issue for you in german, but I can't get the english one.

I claim Javede for Canadian goods. I am from northern Canada and this is my third claim. (one sent ..)

i would like to receive from anywhere!

I would love to receive
-knitting type stuff: wool/yarn (not novelty please - or scratchy acrylic....), knitting patterns, small sock knitting needles, end bits of sock yarn (it is the perfect weight for blythe sweaters and i don't need much) - just a note i love natural fibres fav colours: plum, grey, teal, greens, pale yellow
- doll sized buttons: i knit doll sized clothes and i can't buy teeny tiny buttons here
- anything for my blythe dolls - clothes, shoes etc
- t-shirt or other apparel (tote bag?!) representing your country/state
- candy, craft magazines... surprise me


Asia: blythe items and knit or craft books (felt mascots?!)
Germany: Rebecca knitting magazines
USA: we have pretty similar things in canada ... but i live in a remote area so there is a good chance its new to me! (also .....haven't been able to find twinkle soft chunky yarn - would love some! but that is extravagant so never mind!)

really, i'm not picky check out my wists to get a sense of things i lust after

ooohh i would so love to claim you knit_north.  a shop in my hometown sells plates EXACTLY like the wallpaper plate on your wists.  but sadly unless some money falls out of the sky and lands in my pocket, i probably wont be claiming anyone for the rest of this round.  Sad

Important:

If you have not sent, and it is past your send date, please communicate with me as to what is going on!


I know some of you already have let me know why you haven't sent yet, and that's totally fine  Smiley, so if you have, don't worry, I know what's going on with you  Wink.

But for those of you who haven't, please PM me now! This is necessary for the success of the swap and my mental health  Roll Eyes. Good communication is key in all swaps.

I don't mean to be down anyone's throats, it's just easy for ongoing swaps to get messy so I want to make sure this runs smoothly  Smiley.
