I'm a 30 something woman who lives in Indiana.  I just bought a new house where I live with my new husband and our two doggies.   

I'm allergic to cats (and dogs and lots of other things) but as long as the item is washable, it's ok if you have allergants around.

My favorite color is green, but I really like any of the bright primary and secondary colors, especially all together in rainbow like patterns.

My big crafting passions at the moment are knitting, spinning, and dying.  But I'm also playing with paper and soapmaking.  And I'm definately interested in other crafts that involve yarn or fiber.

My wishlist:

Anything with monkeys, rainbow brite, carebears, or "old style" strawberry shortcake on it

Handspun Yarn (especially the funky novelty yarns, i'm just now learning to make those)

Non-Wool Roving, cotton, silk, any of the nifty new synthetics that are available now.  I've got a ton of wool and I'd love to play with other things and/or blending.thanks ivycircle!

I can always use roving, but my craft room is starting to get a little stuffed with it, so unless it's something really unique, or Fun colors, I have to cut back for a while.  Or pencil roving, I love pencil roving.

Recycled Sari Silk Waste for spinning

Any kind of other neat additions that I can add to my yarns to make fun novelty yarns

Kool Aid in funky flavors (colors) that you can't get easily in the US.

A cotton (cellulose) dying starter kit, or any kind of dyes suitable for dying cotton, this is a big wish now, because I just got a bunch of awesome natural colored cotton yarn in another swap.

I'd love to learn to crochet those little amigurumi, but I've never had any luck learning to crochet.  So any kind of super super easy stuffie pattern and 'crocheting for complete idiots' kit would be great.

Craft books are always great.  Ones I'm especially interested in right now are knitting for pets type books, or toy knitting books.  I'd also love love love the Ashford Book of Carding or Handspun Revolution.  I also could use some basic needle felting books.

Thanks to some fun swaps, I've just started making paper and soap, so I wouldn't mind any new toys to play with those new hobbies.  Little bits of colored papers of any kind to mix in my paper.  Molds for soap.  Additives or colors for either.  Your favorite recipes for making them.

My dogs always appreciate puppy toys, the "big" one weighs about 25 lbs and loves balls.  The little one is only about 9 lbs and only likes things she can eat.  They've been pretty spoiled in previous rounds so we probably don't need any 'all puppy' packages, but if you happen to throw in a tennis ball or some homemade dog biscuits, nobody over here will complain. Smiley

Oh, and I have a husband.  Yesh. He doesn't deserve any presents.  But..... He likes Nascar, especially Kasey Kahne & Bill Elliot.  He also loves comics, especially the Flash.

I don't have alot on my wists yet, but anything from there is also great

Well here it is:

-cute simple totes made with crazy colored fabric or a tote with a really cute stencil of a sewing machine, vintage camera, vintage bike, or a vintage typewriter! (maybe with a pocket?!)

-I am currently in great need of L blank t-shirts!!!! (XL AND XXL AND IF POSSIBLE XXXL WOULD BE EVEN MORE AMAZING!!) All colors needed. I will take thrifted shirts but they must be pre-washed and no stains! And please absolutely no logos. If you go to thrift stores and you happen to find an amazing color but it has a logo its fine but please let it be fairly small. (haha sorry I sound so demanding! I just really need some!)
thanks nesse!

-knitting needles/crochet hook (Im a beginner but I would love more!)

-SugarNCream Yarn. I love that stuff!!! All colors accepted! (I love bright colors especially!!)

-Handspun yarn
-Yarn in really pretty colors!

-a shirt, a purse, or a wallet with one of these embroidered on it!



- Fabric! I love all kinds! I like colors that are slightly darker, but bright colors are good too! (Please nothing smaller than 1/8th of a yard)

-an embellished hoodie! (Im a youth small or a teen small)

-embellished shoes. They can be vintage shoes you decorate or those fake vans anything! I love shoes! thanks malina!

And anything on my wists! (i have a lot of things on my wists so you might want to check it first!)

About me: I am 16 and I live in Houston, Texas. I love it here! I love many things such as animal print, animals of all kind! (Especially rabbits and pandas), bright vivid colors (well I really like all colors but since its spring/summer brighter colors are nice), I love anything to do sewing, knitting, crocheting, and photography! I love to learn new things all the time. I just learned how to knit and crochet but I think Im getting better but if you can give me anything to help me out that would be amazing!

I'm 31 and currently located in Alaska. I am a mother of three and wife to a soldier. I am a college student majoring in history. I love to spin yarn and sew. I love jewel tones and teal. I really don't care for yellow and orange.
Things I'd absolutely love to havefrom most desperate to must have lol:
1. a corset I'd give just about anything for a pretty corset. It's hard to feel pretty sometimes with three kids!
2. vintage patterns of the 40's and 50's especially dresses and suits measurements B=36 W=28 H=36 I can always use a bigger pattern but a smaller one is a pain. Thanks Knuckstersmom!
3. 8x10 photos or paintings of citylife. I live on a tiny island now and really miss the city.
4. lacy embroidered hankerchiefs. Nana said never be without one.
5. A serving dish maybe fused glass or pottery.
6. Fabric! I love wool silk and velvet. They keep me warm in the Arctic.
7. handmade jewelry.I really like necklaces and earrings. Thanks Veludo!
8.DIY needlefelting kit
9. wool roving in brown tones
Hope this helps, I have never made a wishlist before. Kiss

Hi, I'm in Iowa and I just like to get mail that isn't a bill! I sew(garments & quilts) and like to make things out of paper and spend way too much time on craftster!
Some supplies I'd like are:
1. I love paper, origami, scrapbook, colored, card stock, whatever-paper is great.
2.bookbinders glue-I haven't been able to find this in my area, and I like to make little books.
3. It would be so cool to have a long reach stapler something like this.-http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?prodCatType=0&storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=157548&cmArea=SEARCH
4. a 3/4" round hole punch
5. clipart cd's

Maybe you could make something for me
1. scrapbook or empty book
2. boxes, little boxes or big boxes, wooden or clay or fabric or cardboard-I like boxes!
3. earrings-I have pierced ears (3 holes total so if you only have 1 it would be o.k.)

Hello!  I'm Laura, a 22 year old student in Atlanta, GA.  I love packages a lot- so anything you want to send will be very much appreciated.   Smiley

Sewn/altered things:
-  Screenprinted/stenciled/etc. tee, check the wists for ideas.  Women's medium
-  Altered zip-up hoodie
-  I would *love* a tote bag for all of my books, screenprinted or embroidered or appliqued, but also strong and with an inside pocket or two to keep small things organized.  Again, there are examples of awesome ones on my wist.
- A-line or wrap skirt!  Help me survive working in the Atlanta heat!
- Pajama pants (or maybe these t-shirt pants?  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160060.msg1611625#msg1611625)
- Fabric headbands: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44540.0

- Mastercarve blocks (or some other brand; for carving stamps)
- Small bits of beautiful fabric, with embroidery hoop, to help me get started on this:
- Fabric for a quilt- at least 7"x7," up to as much as you are willing to send.  It's for a quilt- small patterns are better than large ones, any color, just nothing plaid or too "country" (i.e., no hearts or fruit)

- Short, multi-strand beaded necklaces (some examples are on my wist) in any colors except brown or yellow

- A mug!  I really like mugs.  Something that will make me smile when I pour my coffee in the morning.
- Or- want to send me a coffee themed package?  That could double as an exam survival package?
- **BIG- BUT MUCH NEEDED!** A jewellery box to organize necklaces and bracelets.  This one is great, but I'm open to any set-up if it will let me separate fairly long/bulky necklaces:
- This thing (any design, as long as it has the same function):  http://www.wists.com/defunctbuffalo/595442c770f6a5b32ea80ff00d813b4e?offset=0
- Shrinky-dink starter kit
- I've been wisting like crazy- I'd love a wisty surprise!

Thanks for reading, and thank you to anyone who picks me!
