I think it will also be helpful to list supplies we’re trying to destash. That way we can read each other’s lists for ideas. I think that might help match people up. Remember, you can choose to send to whomever you like, whenever you’re ready. Feel free to discuss what you want and what you want to send off here!
I have:
•   Lots of scrapbook paper: mostly 12x12, patterned. Some solids, some theme prints (like luggage, water, etc.)
•   Lots of scrapbooking stickers – the fancy kind. Mostly theme packs. I could list subjects if needed.
•   Alphabet sticker sets.
•   Straight knitting needles, sizes 2 – 11 (I think). They’re metal and long; they’re great, but I have others now.
•   Some random single skeins of yarn that are nice, but not my style.
•   Scrapbooking cutouts and large stickers.
•   Small (~1 oz) plastic containers with screw-on lids
•   Fancy pens
•   Pastels
•   Handmade paper (not by me)
•   Lots of glass and plastic beads I’ll never get around to using. I can be more descriptive or link pictures if anyone’s interested
I’ll add to the list as I find more.


Also, "thank you" messages and pictures go here.  Smiley

Alrightie...I am joining.  My goal this year is to destash that scary craft room.  Cheesy

Okay so here's what I KNOW I have...I need to do a more thorough look...
because I know I have more fabric to destash, some paper goods, and random other stuff, but this is what I know off the top of my head.

Some of this I'm only going to be able to ship within the U.S. due to weight.  I wish it didn't matter.  

- several yards of green/black heavy plaid fabric
- a heavy clay flower press
- over-sized glass test tubes with black screw on caps
- skinny glass test tubes (no caps)

- Some sort of fire brick for soldering jewelry or torching clay
- Some form of polishing compound used on jewelry polishing wheels

- no sew iron on fabric adhesive (I pretty much always sew and this stuff will gum your machine if you try, they are serious when they say no sew)

I'll claim you for them, leighi123.  There are 3 of the over sized ones and I think maybe 6 or 7 of the skinny glass test tubes.  I'll find some fabric that you'd like to send with it for protection of the glass tubes and a little something extra.

Waiting to be accepted. I already have my first 2 packages in mind. Smiley I have stuff for almost everyone. I'm compiling my destash list right now, will take pictures and put them in an album on Pintrest.

A pinterst destash board is a great idea Shannin.  I may try to do something like that too.

I have lots of fabric to destash.  Lots of things for making clothing.  Suiting and RPL blends for making dress slacks, various knits, shirting, and blousing.  I was making lots of bussiness casual type clothes when I worked in an office but these days pretty much only wear jeans and sweaters so I don't have as much use for this type of material.

I also have some kid/baby type material. 3-4 yards of boys/football knit, some fleece, maybe a bit of flannel.   

I have lots of scraps of knit and flannel children baby material.  These are strips and small bits left over from making children's PJs.  Could be fun for a patchwork quilt/baby blanket.

Wool fleece.  I bought several whole fleeces locally.  I've cleaned and used some.  I still have lots of the raw wool left.  These are Shetland and polypay mix breeds.  I have some black shetland that is super soft, with a good stable length.  I have some brown/grey that has neat locks and lots of crimp, and quite a bit of natural colored shetland/polypay mixed breed.  I could send small bits that have been washed and cleaned or larger amounts unwashed (some of it, especially the black, does have quite a bit of VM to pick out).

some trims

I might be interested in some of this.  I'm planning to make a quite/texture book for my sister's baby and need bits and pieces of interesting fabric with different textures.  The fake fur could be great for animal pages.  Shiny satiny things could make some nice contrast.  I'm open to any material you think might be interesting texture for small hands.  Odds and ends of trims are always useful too.
