I'm Shannin, I'm a student at UC Berkeley studying computer science. I live in a neighboring city with my boyfriend, who finds all my crafting very interesting (it's funny how amazed he is when I make things). He loves cats, but unfortunately I'm allergic to them. Sad I like geeky things and gamer things. I LOVE pandas. My favorite colors are orange and green. I like neutral colors: black, brown, grays, cream, etc. I do not like pink or purple. My favorite crafts to do are spinning, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, and sewing.

- Roving/Batts, dyed or undyed. Preferred fibers are merino wool (superwash or not), bamboo, tencel, banana, and blends. I'll take anything, though.
- Acid dyes / Procion dyes. Open/used are fine, a long as there's still some left. I prefer Greener Shades acid dyes but I'll take any brand.
- Yarn, dyed or undyed. Commercial or handspun. Wool, bamboo, cotton, acrylic. I like soft, bulky yarns.
- Fabric, solid cotton, or bamboo. Any color! I also love damask prints. Panda print fabric and banana print fabric would be cool, too. I'll take any fabric, fat quarters and decent sized scrap fabrics too.
- Buttons, all shapes and sizes and colors.
- Ribbons, any color, any design, any length.
- Lace, any color, any length, any size.
- Sewing machine thread, any color.
- Cross-stitching fabric, any color.
- Embroidery threads, any color DMC.
- Wooden embroidery hoops, any size, preferrably small.
- Perler / Hama beads. Any size, any color.
- Rubber sheets, any size, for stamp carving.
- Photo frames. Sleek, black. 4"x6" or 5"x7".
- Film, 35mm or 120 film. Fujifilm Instax Mini film cartridges or Polaroid 300 film cartridges or Polaroid 600 film cartridges. Expired film is absolutely OK! Smiley
- 1" button parts (pins and magnets).
- French barrette hair clips.
- Brown Kraft paper sheets, 8.5"x11".
- Sealable cello bags, 12"x12". Acid free.
- Paper bubble mailers, any size. Smaller preferred (000, 00, 0).
- Shipping boxes. Around the size 6"x6"x6".
- Anything with pandas.
- Glass jars with lids, mason jars, from jams and such. Any size.
- Stuff for making CP soaps

I am mainly here to give - I must admit Grin Though I do have a few needs myself...

I was born and still live in Denmark. I live in a smaller town called Kolding because my school is located here. It's a designschool and I study fashion and textiles. I'm currently on the MA.
I do a large vareity of creative stuff but I focus mostly on knitting and sewing. Also I have a big interest in organising events which I do in my spare time. Along side that I do live roleplay and mediaval reenactment with focus on procurement of handcrafts.

As for dislikes hmmmm I don't like paylies and tartains and for colors like neons and pastels. Is very much dislike fun far and acryllic yarns. I like drinking cocoa and knitting on the sofa. In short I like using my hands. I like color combies like blue-green-yellow, light red-green and a single neon orange with grays. In general I like color.

- wooden hoops (without plastic closings!) All can be used but small and irregular (non round)s are best. babalina!
- Japanese crafting books: all is welcome but I mostly use felt sowing ones with foods of all sorts Cheesy
- rubberstamp kit
- jewelry: splitrings
- jewelry: sterling earring/hoops/hooks
- jewelry: headpins
- X-Rays: both animal and human
- Art/handpainted yarns of brands like HandMaiden, Malibrigo, Madelinetosh
- shrinky dink paper rlynn!
- safety beak (like in eyes they exist in beaks and noses)
- vintage hats and accessories - I need them for the photo shoots on the school
- head for displaying homemade headbands and hats. Would be hot if it was vintage! I don't want a styrofoam as they break too easy.
- a (safe) rotary cutter with blades babalina!
- toy shot gun and other stuff for an emergancy zombie box saintcady and babalina <3
- apron kits! Scarlet_nights^^

Hello, everyone!  I'm so happy to join this swap.  A little about me: I'm a married mother of four.  My boys are 8, 6, and 2.  My baby girl is 8 months old.  I'm a middle school science teacher and am, of course, pretty geeky.  Smiley  I like vibrant colors and jewel tones.  I dislike pastels and all-brown palettes.  I like sewing, needle felting, jewelry, basic soap/spa items, and embroidery.  

My crafty wish list:

essential oils for soap/spa projects
wool fiber/batts/roving/bits & scraps
wool felt
sewing machine thread

unique embroidery thread
jewelry findings
ring blanks
pendant blanks

leather scraps - any size
needle felting needles
unique buttons
shrinky dink plastic
chicken wire - enough to cover an 8X10 picture frame so I can make it into an earring holder
any textured yarn - even small amounts.  I love art yarn and REALLY love handspun.  Even the uneven stuff that new spinners typically don't use.  I will use them for braided Rapunzel scarfs.
anything from my wists or pinterest
100% wool sweater or sweater scraps
glass containers suitable to for bath salts, etc.
gold paint pen - fine tip preferred
picture frames that you think would fit in with my victorian farmhouse

Hi, my name's Jami

I live in Washington state with my husband and 2 cats.

I spend my day as a teen librarian hosting gaming programs, crafting with teens, and helping

I mostly knit but I also want to explore other crafts. I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and I'd love fabric so I can use my machine.

I love blues, black for clothing, purple, Burgundy/wine reds, and my husband loves dark green.

I am allergic to smell of smoke and have food allergies.

I am looking for:
Fabric
Scraps so I can learn to sew!
I want to make clothes and toys for my niece. She will be one year old in march and her mom hats the color pink but loves purple.
Fabric to make zippered pouches, bags, and other simple sewing projects.
Knit Fabric to make skirts or shirts. (I love knit)
Buttons. I own no buttons but it seems they would be helpful in making projects
I have a love hate relationship with Brocade Fabric. http://www.joann.com/search/_brocade_fabric/ I love it. it hates me and always shreds.

Yarn
I love Bamboo yarn its my new passion
I"ve also wanted to learn how to felt so wool or something feltable would be nice
I also like Bulky yarn
I"d like to knit a lacy shawl, but not found an inspiring enough pattern.
Yarn/Socks to knit a sock monkey for my niece.

Canvas
Acrylic Paint
Pain Brushes
I always wanted to learn how to paint
Stencils

Items I can upcycle.



I"d love to get a copy of the Complete Photo Guide to Knitting. I"m a visual person and I learn best by seeing patterns.
Sewing Patterns for Plus Size clothes, toddler girl, toys or simple sewing projects
Knitting Patterns

Vinyl Wall Stickers
Currently have these on my wall
