I claim lovely_gangster for a British package!
This is my 2nd claim this round (1 in transit) and I'm in the UK.

Wishes...

Supplies - we don't have JoAnns or anything cool like that here so I'm always lusting after craft materials

-The springs that you sew in sunglasses cases to make them pop open and shut

-Glass etching paste

-Lazer scissors

-Straps (long handles) for bag-making

-Cork sheets or tiles for backing coasters

-Iron on interfacing

-Canvas fabric

-A sewing pattern for fabric bowls

-Gorilla Glue pen

-Inkjet printable things:
magnet sheets
shrinky dinks
printable fabric


Misc

-Anything related to my fav animals - seals, eels, snakes, bats or bears, especially photographs/art or fabric/craft supplies.

-US magazines; 'Adorn', 'Threads' or 'Craft' - any old issues

-Things for home baking (other than cookie cutters- thanks Yarnisfun for those!)


Edibles - I like most things, except for nuts and dark/plain chocolate Wink

-Pocky - I've tried regular strawberry and chocolate ones so any other flavours would be great.

-Asian candy, especially anything grapey

-Hershey 'smores' bars (these are the only type of Hersheys I can't find in the UK)


There's more 'about me' info in my Craftster profile and you can check my wists (link in signature) Smiley

This is my second claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved

I'm Michelle and I'm from Singapore (although I've been studying in NZ for the past 2 years) and I claim dancingzira for belly dance related jewellery and Indian fabrics/sari fabrics.
EDIT: DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, MY CLAIM HAS CHANGED TO PURPLEONE FOR ASIAN CANDY.

My Wishlist:
- I'm a jewellery addict so really...(besides acrylic beads), I would LOVE any cute/interesting/unique beads or charms that I can use to make jewellery with. Gumball charms and cute kitsch/artsy unique charms are especially appreciated cos they're really hard to find here
- Buttons! Lots of buttons! Any kind would be nice
- Interesting fabric scraps for making kanzashi flowers
- Those clear glass marbles to make marble bracelets/pins...can't, for the life of me, find them here
- shrinky dinks!! Those inkjet ones would be good <3
- Any funky jewellery supplies at all ^^ vintage stuff lying around, etc...
- Cool little trinkets from your country
- I want to learn crochet so crochet hooks and yarn would be good! Cheesy
- Glass etching paste
- Yarn needles
- Perler bead boards! (Anything other than a square, circle or hexagon)
- Some kind of varnish/sealer to coat resin pieces
- Clear silicone glue to make marble magnets/bracelets.. or gem-tac glue? Can't find any here..

Thanks to anyone who picks me! Smiley

I am claiming constantina for beads, buttons, fabric scraps, marbles for magnets, crochet hooks, wool and maybe some other stuff!!

ETA: This is my 2nd claim (in 2 days - oops!), 0 in transit, 0 received

I'm Anna , from Melbourne in currently sunny Australia, otherwise known as the a*** of the world. LOL

Sorry for being so far away, I know postage to Australia costs an absolute bomb, but swapping always costs me alot too, hence why I don't do it that often.

Anyways, on to my list!!!!

1. Germany or german speaking countries - goodies from Diddl, Nici or Ohne Dich ist Alles Doof, folk-y type fabrics, Kthe Wohlfahrt things, German wool/yarn, anything folk, oktoberfest goodies, kitschy black forest-y bavarian type trinkets, anything DDR related (i know this can be hard to get out of the country), anything vintage, know this is a big ask but clothing with german writing on it (like i saw some really cute tshirts with glckspilze on them in hamburg), anything sandmnnchen, milka/ritter sport

2. Japan or South Korea - sanrio goodies, kimono fabric, candy, origami paper, just cute things in general, craft magazines/patterns esp for felt plush things, kawaii stationary

3. France - anything le petit prince, anything vintage, especially old tins (doesn't necessarily have to be authentic vintage), old postcards, a really nice scarf would also be cool PM me, nice yarn or ribbons, nice fabric (with a vintage feel), anything elmer the elephant

4. Britain - kitschy souvenirs related to big ben, telephone booths, double decker busses etc, tea related stuff, old postcards, anything retro, candy, anything victorian-y, anything cottage garden-y/royal dalton china-y (obviosuly not actual china, but stuff with that kind of feel, if that makes sense), wool/yarn, vintage fabric/ribbons, anything kitschy queen elizabeth, old playing cards/board game cards or bits and pieces thanks purpleone!!


5. Netherlands - anything clogs or anything miffy!!! vintage things, kitschy Dutch souvenirs, nice fabric or wool if you can get it

6. Russia/other eastern bloc countries - anything babushka related, anything USSR related (i studied the russian revolution and LOVED it!!!), anything with Russian writing on it, vintage things

7. Scandinavia - folk things, cool fabric, ephemera, anything vintage, fabric from ikea, other cool scandinavian designed things, viking related goodies

8. U.S. - altoid tins, sharpies, vintage looking scrap booking supplies, ephemera, big ask but a set of stamps in a typewriter type font for atc-ing would be super (already have lower case letters), vintage things, i know i'm late for this, but dia de los muertos themed things, loteria cards, other mexican themed things, amy butler, free spirit or reprodepot fabrics - don't have to be big pieces b/c i just use them for making kanzashi and other little things. there are no good places to get fabric where i live. *sigh* here are some examples of some things that i like:

thanks in advance for anyone who chooses me.    Kiss Kiss Kiss

Anna ^^

 hello!  my name is Faith and I am an American living in Japan.  I have been here for two years now, and love it, though do miss some things from the states (like clothing stores that have sizes over "medium")! 

THis is my first claim: lovely gangster for sanrio goodies, kimono fabric, candy, origami paper, just cute things in general, craft magazines/patterns esp for felt plush things, kawaii stationary....as much of that stuff as I can get!  one quick question.....a bit rusty here in swap land...lovely gangster do i just pm you for your address?



America:  vanity fair magazine....or any wonderful magazine in english, bust, bitch, venus etc.  also any knitting magazine in english.  they dont have to be new, some from a thrift store is perfectly fine with me!  and some reeses pieces.

Europe:  fashion mags, local yarn, wool, knitting materials, stationary, from England, tea, but not twinnings, because i can get that here, anything moomin, vintage knitting patterns

Australia/New Zealand:  magazines, again, dont have to be new, stationary, knitting patterns (vintage is always great), and knitting supplies, needles, local yarn blend...especially with all those sheep in NZ!  etc. 

South America:  i have no idea what i would want from this region....suprise me!

Asia, outside of japan:  funky candy or snacks, wool, or local yarn, stationary or handmade paper

and really anything that you think is very specific from where you are in the world!

Hi, I'm LizzieMcGuire from Germany and this is my 3rd claim (1 received).
I claim tracytremble for local yarn, english knitting magazine(s) and a surprise.

I'd be happy to receive from anywhere!

My wishlist is:

Anything related to knitting/spinning:
wool for spinning,
yarn produced in your country,
funny knitting supplies
ashford wool dyes (those are hard to get in Germany)

cute craft supplies from your country (like those cute Japanese stickers)

origami paper

a stuffie sewing book (with cute stuffie-patterns) for felt or fabric stuffies (I can only read German and English, but something with easy understandable pictures would be ok)

special baking moulds

Hi everyone! I'm Concetta from the US and this is my 1st claim. I claim LizzieMcGuire for wool for spinning!

I'd be happy to receive from anywhere!

My wishlist is:

-knitting magazines or books ( I can read in French and English)
-MotoGP gear for my DH (hats, bandanas, postcards, etc)
-interesting yarns or fabrics (recycled yarn is very cool if you find some locally made sweaters or something)
-scrapbooking supplies like papers or ephemera
-handmade knitting needles or crochet hooks
-cookbooks in French or English (vintage or new or magazine, doesn't matter)
-this one's going to be tough, but if you see anything related to loom knitting, I'd *really* like to get that! Books, local made looms, magazines, etc.

And if you could do me a favor and throw in a postcard of where you're at, I'd really appreciate it - I'm keeping a scrapbook of all of my swap partners!  Cheesy

Thanks!

Please hold off on this swap for a bit so dizzylizzy can catch up with updating the front page. I'm going to lock the thread for now, but things will resume as soon as possible. Thanks.  Smiley
