1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / wist sept/oct swap gallery on: October 16, 2006 11:51:27 AM
here it is! post 'em if you got 'em!
2  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Wist Swap Sept/Oct on: September 20, 2006 05:47:04 PM

Swap name:  Ongoing Wist swap for September and October
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: KidCompassion
Sign-up date range: October 31 2006
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope... the more the merrier
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parents
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES
All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


This is swap is similar to The 2006 Wishlist March Swap PLEASE read all
the details before you join. This is a Wist Swap so in order to participate you
need to create one at Wists.com. This swap is for fellow craftsters to make
stuff you love but can not make yourself.

You will look at the Wists of the people who have already
been approved 

Once you have chosen someone you must send me a message
telling me who pick and what you will be making them.  When i receive your
message, you must wait for my response letting you know it is ok to
post your link and a little blurb about you, make sure to include the country
you live in for those who do not want to ship out side of their own. Only
approved swappers can post a Wist link. This swap is no longer secret, although you can keep what you are sending a suprise if you wish. Feel free to contact your partner directly with questions and for their address- re the format of wish swaps.

Last but not Least:
You will then can start crafting the item Items must be sent out within
two weeks of selection

Now here are some other rules you need to follow
- to be able to post your link you have to craft for at least ONE person
- you must have AT LEAST 6 items on your Wist ..you can continue to add during the swap
- You can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you get picked a SECOND TIME (note I changed this to keep the swap moving more and be more fair), you must pick another person to craft for if you would like to get picked again (you will be put on hold until you craft again)  I will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.
NOTE- I am adding two changes to previous versions of this swap. You have to craft again after being picked twice not three times and I'm not going to keep the partners secret. That aspect seemed kind of pointless and unnecessarily complicated.

ALSO- it was pointed out in the gallery that this is a thread where we make things inspired by other people's designs. If you receive a version of something made by a different craftster, make sure you credit the original craftster too when you post in the gallery. Provide a link to their post or website or etsy shop- of course this goes for very unique things and not say a Panta.

If you have any question feel free to pm me

Remember, to post your link, you must craft for one person

3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / dawson college quilt? on: September 13, 2006 12:48:33 PM
this is probably more for canadians than anyone else (although anyone in the world is welcome to respond), but i'm watching the tv coverage of the cegep shooting at dawson college in montreal, and i'm thinking of starting a quilt for the students and staff, to send to the school. would anyone else be interested in this, or some other project from us craftsters to the students?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / nothing i make fits me! on: August 27, 2006 04:45:03 PM
 i do quite a bit of sewing, and EVERY TIME i make something from a pattern it comes out too big, all over. and not just a little bit too big, but like an extra 4-5 inches - usually i just try it on and keep taking it in a bit at a time until it fits - is this normal when you're making clothes from a pattern? do you ladies have similar problems?

i'm being very careful about measuring myself and picking patterns not by size but according to my measurements. i'm using the requested seam allowance and type of fabric.

maybe there's some other little sewer's tip that i don't know about?  like a trick when taking your measurements, or cutting the pattern or something?

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / cupcake scarf on: May 20, 2006 01:28:46 PM

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / get healthy/lose weight swap on: May 03, 2006 12:19:04 PM
what about a swap dedicated to taking better care of ourselves? swapping things that will motivate, inspire or help us to workout, eat better, etc?

9  CANADA / Alberta / sewing machine up for grabs in edmonton on: January 14, 2006 10:31:38 AM
i've made another post about this, but i'm in edmonton and i have a brother ls2125 sewing machine  to get rid of. it's in need of a little TLC, a little maintenance (it feeds the thread in a kind of hiccup-y fasion) but it totally works. i can't use it as a trade in because it's missing a couple of accessories(the flat bed attachment). SO, if you're in edmonton and want to get your mitts on a free machine, you should let me know. i'd rather see it go to a real crafter than sit on a shelf at value village or something.
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / want a brother ls2125? on: January 14, 2006 09:52:44 AM
i'm about to upgrade my sewing machine ... i have a brother ls2125 that started acting a little wonky recently, and i'm just going to replace it instead of doing the maintenance - YES, i'm that lazy. the problem with is that it feeds the thread in this weird, hiccup- fashion - it works, it's just annoying.  it may just need some oil, or it may need a new part, i'm not sure. ANYWAY, i was going to just junk it or take it to value village, but i thought maybe somebody here would want it? i'm in canada, and if you're willing to pay the shipping. it's yours...OR if you have a really good sob story as to why you're so broke i should send it to you, it's yours.

but you have to promise to repay me with some kind of care package of stuff you made.
