For those of you who joined this swap in August:
Feel free to post any 3 wishes you please (AFTER you've been APPROVED) , they do not have to be the same as last month!

Please remember to send in the form even if you had a list in August. I am a new organizer, and I don't have your information!

You must PM the organizer when you post your list, so she knows that you have done so and can check it. PLEASE DO NOT post anything other than your wishlist (new OR old) and a little bit of info about you, any questions or comments can go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50691.0

Details of swap:
-- Each person interested will post a list of maximum THREE items they want. (Try and list items that you cannot make, but would like to have). These items must be reasonable; it must not be ones that would cost someone a truckload of money to make for you!

-- Once you have given your three items good thought, reply to this thread and post your 3 wishes, along with any other information that will be helpful for those looking to craft for you. (Color preferences, style, size, design, etc)

-- Those coming along this thread will scroll and read all sign ups, and decide if they want to craft for someone. Those who sign up as well are free to craft for another.

-- The catch to this is you cannot expect anything in return for your efforts except a thank you. That is why it's called an unconditional swap. You can hope that someone else or maybe that same person would want to make you something as well and then craft for you. And knowing the great craftsters here, I'm sure everyone will receive something.

-- Each month the organizer will change. All information of the swap will be transferred to the next organizer. An announcement will be posted about this change.

-- Each person can be picked 2 TIMES! This means that only 2 people can send to someone. Within those 2 people, the person may receive all 3 items. I.e. "A" and "B" are sending to "X". A chooses to send 1 item off the list, while B chooses to send the other 2 items. Therefore fulfilling all 3 wishes of "X".
Now, it is not necessary to fulfill all three 3 wishes..."A" could send just one item and "B" could choose to send one item thereby fulfilling two wishes on "X's" wish list.

-- When you post your wish list be sure to mention the country you are in on that post. For example:

I am in India.
Wish 1
Wish 2
Wish 3

-- Once you have been picked twice your name will be crossed out in red on the list. You can be on the list again the next month, when the organizer changes.

-- The crossed out names can be back on the list once the organizer changes (every month).

-- As soon as anyone picks a partner, you have to ship them their stuff within 2 weeks.

-- If more than one person picks a person and wants to make them the same item, then the person who Pmed the organizer first will get preference to make that item.

I would appreciate if you could PM me with the DC number or scan the receipt. And - Please DO NOT write your original post in any other color but black. This will make it easier to sort through.

-- All in all this is sort of a good karma swap. Give unconditionally is your motto my fellow craftsters.

-- All regular swap rules do apply for this. All of you who sign up will be screened to see if you are eligible to join the swap, including Newbies.

-- Positive and Negative feedback will be given for this swap. Your feedback will reflect the number of people you send to that month.

-- When you PM me your wish choices, please include their craftster name, wish # and wish.

I will continue the trend of posting who has chosen who.

Please DO NOT post your lists until AFTER I've told you you're in.

When you have been picked PLEASE crossout and change the colour of your post accordingly (green for one wish, red for two-three wishes fulfilled). If you need help with that, feel free to PM me.

Hi, I'm Tab from Wisconsin USA

My wishes are;

1. Surprise from my wists (link is in signature) Thank you Orange_Sunset!!

2.Knucks http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html I love the purple Harm none ones with the purple and the branches. It wouldn't have to say anything either. But they are gorgeous! Or just make some up for me, and I can decorate them later.

3. A totebag (preferably with a zipper) I just started teaching preschool this year, and I ride my bike/walk to work everyday. I have lots of  papers to bring to and from work, so I could use a fun tote bag to keep my papers and books safe. Thanks Thumbkin

I'm a 28 year old, mom to 3 boys. I just started teaching preschool. I love crocheting and I'm trying to get better at sewing. I love the medivel type style, I also like classic looking things, such as handwriting, celtic knots, coat of arms, and I also LOVE faeries. My favorite colors change all the time. But I like grey and soft purple together, I also like fall colors. But I guess if I was just picking colors for favorites it would be soft purple, grey, and black.... however, as long as it doesn't scream brightly I'll like it! If you have any questions at all feel free to pm me!

Thanks for looking!

Hi, I'm Christina and I'm from NY.

My wishes:

- Fabric. At least 1/2 yd. You can look at my wists for examples of what I like  Cheesy But generally any cotton/ home decor fabric that looks modern would be much appreciated!

- A L pink tshirt for my boyfriend that says: My girlfriend went to New Hampshire and all I got was this shirt.

- A kit to motivate me to be more healthy and a kit to cheer me up since I'm stuck in a long-distance relationship.

About me: I'm 22 and I'm going for my masters in early education. I work at a daycare center in a classroom filled with four year olds. I love to knit [beginner], crochet, cook, and sew. I want to broaden my crafting horizons though so I want to learn some new things. I love dark gem-like colors, especially blues, plums, and reds.  I'm a simple girly-girl. I think this picture best sums up my style: http://static.flickr.com/31/63660763_ae87a69fec.jpg?v=0

Thank you for reading my list      Grin

...i just want a moment to be real

Hi Smiley I'm Jennifer from MA. Here's my list:

-full apron, perhaps with a pocket near the bottom?
-thanks TheDishclothQueen!

-resin or enamel bracelet or necklace

-stenciled tee or hoodie (size L)

I'm 29. I do lots of crafts, including knitting, cross stitch, sewing, making felt stuffies, painting, and  beadwork. I'm going to school for surgical technology, and like biology and anatomy themed stuff, as well as koi fish, dia de los muertos, skulls, frogs, autumn leaves, phoenixes,and black cats. I love music too, a couple of my favorite artists are David Bowie, Tori Amos, and the Dresden Dolls. Any of those themes would be awesome on the items I listed above.

Thanks for looking!

I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada.

1) Anything from my wist or wist inspired. (click here)

2) Sewing notions of any sort, fabric, thread in any color but black and white, sequins,zippers,button snaps..you name it OR roving for spinning and needle feltingthanks enchanted_wool !!

3) A purse or bag of any sort! I love 'em all! (hobos would be my fav) check my wist for examples!


I love floral designs, polka dots, stripes (bright, bold) hibicus prints. I pretty much like all colors( especially brown, blues, and greens) It'd be easier to say i dont like the combination of black+green, florescent colors, black+red, and black+pink. I love snoopy& the beatles. I'm a "bag lover"..cant get enough of them! ..Just pm if you have any questions
