Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.


How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from ongoing wish swap 24.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received.  Do not choose over your given limit.
Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them.
Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.


Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

Here is Samsara's list from OWS - 24, since I believe it's technically August in some parts of the globe:

My Wish list
Ethical & Allergies - Im a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) Im also allergic to nickel, biological washing powder and artificial perfumes.
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, cant I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery? (Im allergic to Nickel though!)

A crystal/gemstone necklace! I love amethyst, rose quartz, turquoise, tigers eye, fluorite, garnetum, I pretty much love all crystal!

My babies would love you forever if you made them a kitty pi!
If you knit it, I can felt it! I'm finding it hard to find feltable yarn!

A newsboy hat like this, in purple or black or green  Grin

A magic yarn ball with a fun project to do  Grin (Any yarn except acrylic I have loads of that in my stash!)

A pair of flared knitted legwarmers in variegated yarn purples maybe? (pm me for measurements)

Id love a Weasley sweater in purple with the initial G (for Ginny) on it  Cheesy

A car litter bag like this but in different material (skully material would be cool, or black patterned, or purple)
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5454876 Thank you Frosty!

A jewellery roll with a ring keeper and plenty of pockets please!  Wink

A string of prayer flags or bunting with cool material, or images stencilled on (see below for favourite motifs) There're some good examples in my wists, but feel free to create your own.

A kimono hoodie

A black wrap dress.

Long bloomers

A long hippy skirt!

Something for my belly-dancing I have a sort of gothic costume that Im working on at the moment (black and silver) how about helping me?  Grin

Some washable cloth pads with wings and a fastener there have been some really cute ones that people have made! (A travel purse with dirty/clean compartments would be excellent too, but not essential  Grin )

Something for my garden? If it tinkles, twirls or makes a noise, that would be great! It would need to stand up to the English weather though! I have a sort of enchanted garden theme going on mushrooms, fairies, wind chimes, wind-dancers and sun catchers that sort of thing  Wink

Id love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I dont mind whether its a wall hanging or a picture! Thankyou preendpeterpan!  Grin

I'd love a Wizards Chess set a la Harry Potter (I have a board). I know it won't move like the real thing, but maybe in polymer clay, or something similar. Or maybe inspired by LOTR?

A cutlery wind chime

Fimo decorated cutlery (Two pairs would be great, one for me, one for the BF)

Supplies and kits
KIY Sock knitting kit, or a wire wrapping kit

Flexible moulds for polymer clay/resin, or some of that flexible polymer clay for making your own moulds, or mini cutters.  Grin

Stuff ready to spin! Ive just learnt how to use a drop spindle and Im addicted  Grin Thanks Velvet Rose

Beads (no plastic please) especially gemstone beads, amethyst, turquoise, rose quartz, anything like that!

New pinking shears. Mine belonged to my Mum and are older than me. Unfortunately theyre getting a little blunt now.

Alternative craft books - there are some fab ones about at the moment! Any craft book in fact, I don't mind vintage or pre-loved!

Something for my yoga practice surprise me! A bag, a strap or something else? I love these!

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara
Thanks to Laural and Banga for Wisty surprises!

About me
Im 38, Im an art teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 2 cats and a german shepherd dog. Im basically a hippy-gothy chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, turquoise and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I dont like pastels and I cant wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really dont suit me!) I love batiks, appliqus, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I love tactile things, and things that are practical rather than decorative. Favourite themes are cats, dragons, peacocks, nature, trees, stars, Ohms, lotus, tribal style designs, anything Celtic, Art-Nouveau or Zetti, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

Ive included my Wists, but dont feel obliged to produce exact copies, theyre more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Heres some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I claim Samsara for a felted kitty bed.

I hope I do this right...This is my 3rd claim with 2 sent and I recieved.

My list.

A tote with an elephant on it.  It could be stenciled or appliqued, just something fun.

A Swap journal

A felt needle book

A stenclied or screen printed t shirt, mens large in black with white writting that reads, Trust me, Im a
photographer.  If it had a pic of a SLR on it too, it would be awesome.

Funky necklaces.

Anything inspired by my favorite band, Army of Freshmen.

Rose soap.

Fused glass pendants.

Strawberry lip balm in tubes, not pots.

Knit Harry Potter scarf, the kind with the big red blocks and the thin gold lines.

Fingerless gloves, ones with the half fingers

Anything Carebear or The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking for my daughter, she likes anything and
wears a 3T

Canvas totes, any color except that natural color.

Metal crochet hooks, any size, any brand.

Sugar n Cream yarn

Five skeins of Lion brand cotton ease each of lime and charcol

Pillow cases, standard size, any color.

Embossing power

Stencils for a scrapboss.

A DIY yarn dying kit.

A felted soap kit.

Caron Simply Soft Brites yarn in any color, I am making a scrap blanket so any is great

Of course anything from my wists or inspired by them.  Or a surprise!

About me.

I live in Michigan, USA.  I am an almost 26 year old mother of one highly active 2 year old little girl.  I crochet and have recently started embrodiery (which I love), I also emboss cards because I think buying cards is a waste of time and money.  I work at a candy/ice cream shop where we make all of the candy and ice cream.  It is super fun.  My education is in photography and I do freelance as well.  I am a huge nerd, I like random weird things and I will do anything for a laugh.  I have never seen anything on craftster that isn't awesome and I will love anything.  Thanks so much.

I cliam bkrenning4 for four hair scarves.

This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi, I'm a 25 year old who loves to sew from Canada! I'm always on the lookout for new crafts to try. My favourite colour is pink....and well I'm easy to please when it comes to colours, I pretty much like anything but neon (although apparentally I loved neon in grade 3 because it seems like I'm sporting it in all pictures taken that year haha).

Here are some things I'd love to receive:
-a sock monkey kit (or the socks used to make a sock monkey)
-a lightweight knitted scarf that I can wear in the fall and winter
Here is an example...but I'd be happy with anything that is not too heavy and that doesn't have fringe Smiley (pink, turquoise, red)
-anything hello kitty related
-a DIY polymer clay kit for something easy. I've never tried it, but I love the look of polymer clay charms
-crocheted or knit mary jane slippers. I wear about a size 7.5 US/ 39 Euro sizing
-promo items from my etsy shop
-DIY kanzashi flower kit (they are sooo cute!)

Thanks in advance to the person who chooses me Smiley
