Organizers: Grieney and Dulcinea

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 28 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 28 Approval. When notifying us about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us! When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

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 26.

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 for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.  If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

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

Kittykill was the last list in OWS27 - so I'm helping Grieney by posting the list - and seriously, I think we need to FLOOD Grieney with claims, since she's being such a slacker!!

I claim Calluna for some books and a sari.
Anything off of my wists. I have a ton of ideas on there.

A hoodie.

Hand made glad rag pads. (Cloth Menstrual Pads )

This is a stretch but a lap quilt.

Jewelry-rings, bracelets

candles or a learn to make candle kit

A shrine (day of the dead, halloween, 1950's pin up)

A new purse. I love purses!

crochet or knitted fingerless gloves

plain pillowcases and tea towels to embroider

Messagener bag

A roll up holder thingy for my embroidery thread (like the kind for crochet and knitting needles)

A 1920's style hat

a new scarf-I have one being made but I love them and can't get enough

Vintage Halloween stuff

A tote bag with pockets

A new wallet


ghost story books

Sweaters for my puppies

A new dog bed

Vanilla perfume

Microscope pendant

Japanese craft books or magazines.

About me...
I have been married for about a year, I have 3 jack russell babies. I love pin up and 1950's stuff. I love bad  "B" horror movies. I also love Day of the Dead stuff. Some of my favorite artist are Mitch O' Connell and Lisa Petrucci. I love Rockabilly and old traditional country music but love punk just as much. I live in the Pacific Northwest where the rain is beginning for the next 9 months. I love the color pink, black,reds and certain shades of blue (not neon or navy) or yeah, and greens.

Thanks in advance for picking me. If you have any other questions, please feel free to pm me~

I claim reenreen for pretty embroidery floss!

Hi! Im CrossStitchinMomma and Im live in Tennessee (USA). Im a married 25 year old SAHM of one. Im originally from England so any British candy (if youd like to know what types please PM me!) would be welcome as I cant get it over here! I love anything to do with Victorian or Tudor England. I love to knit. I know how to cross stitch but it generally takes a long time and I like finishing things quickly. I just bought a computerized sewing machine but it is super intimidating to me so I havent really used it yet but Id love to learn how to sew. Anything from my wist would be great too!!!



Some skeins of any soft good quality yarn you can find (my favorite colors are black, purple and I like the rainbow colored yarns too but any color will do as long as its not turquoise, yellow, orange or anything neon yuck!) Thanks Grieney!
Id like to learn how to knit cables so some cable knitting supplies would be great.
As always needles are great! I LOVE bamboo knitting needles!!! I bought a pair of bamboo circs and I love them! Thanks DragonflyDucky!
I'd like some yarn like this https://www.shopatron.com/product/part_number=MM/570.0.24215.
or the Chocolate Cherry color from
http://www.claudiaco.com/  <------I would just asolutely love love love to get some of this or another yarn with the same colors(enough to make some fingerless gloves)!
Some beautiful hand dyed yarn with different colors.

If you could find anything with British flags on it that would super great.
Anything with Victorian ladies on it would be great too.
I would LOVE anything with Asian stuff or geishas. Thanks KittyKill!
Id like some cute hippie/vintage patterns.
Rotary cutter Thanks Homerof2 !
Some fabric with four leaf clovers or Ireland (the word Ireland not actually Ireland itself lol) so I can make a purse for my best friend.

Books/Magazines (used is perfectly fine!):
A beginner sewing book with lots of details, diagrams and descriptions! (Im a sewing machine virgin!)
A beginner dressmaking/clothing how to book.
Id like to learn how to crochet so any beginner crochet book. -Thanks Grieney!
Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Knitting over the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Any Debbie Bliss baby/toddler knitting pattern book Thanks maremare312!
Any funky/hip knitting books like SnB or SnB Nation stuff like that.

Crafted Items:
I would love this but in a different fabric...just plain black fabric would be great! I would just totally love to have this! This would be perfect to organize the stuff in my computer area! http://www.woolybully.com/poppins.php

A bookweight (sorry this is the only example I could find might be filled with that heavy stuff that stuffies are filled with - not sure what its called exactly) http://www.flickr.com/photos/ysoldateague/446404291/ Thanks Estrata!

I saw this on another wist and I am totally in  love with it! I would like one but in black or dark purple material.
Thanks Vala_amaris!
I would love one of these (in black & with the oriental theme would be nice) - http://www.lanternmoon.com/SNC.asp
A Drop-In or Small Purseket (in cute retro fabric or just plain black or purple would be best) - http://www.purseket.com/index.php/cPath/index.php?target=categories&category_id=4

Stained glass Union Jack (this would be great to hang in my window) - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6311151

A Union Jack purse (I love this!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6799098

Id love just the British Charm (I love this too!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6732827

I'd love anything that would help me to organize my small house. I have alot of stuff and hardly anywhere to put it all. Areas that are most in need of organization: My computer desk...its where I spend all my time! I have a lot of crafty stuff but no where to put it.

A mail/bill organizer or a desk organizer with places to put pens, store paper, etc.

If someone knows how to make a lapdesk and would like to make one for me or my son that would be wonderful. If you are wondering what a lapdesk is its this thing (it doesn't need to have a cup holder and just plain material would be fine)...http://img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=ldparislg_(Small).JPG&username=sharps_container_supply&aid=13168672

A pretty coupon organizer would be great too but in a nice fabric not that ugly stuff with fruit all over it. I want it to be stylish and big enough so that I won't loose it but small enough to fit in my purse. Thanks hdcase!
A crocheted table runner similar to this one in black https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=108428.msg1032287#msg1032287
...it doesn't have to be the same design it can be all circles if you want...

Some black and white photographs of old English churches or houses (preferably the ones made of stone or houses with thatched roofs). I know this one is a long shot but I can dream! Just so you get an idea Id like them all to be relatively uniform because I want a set of 3 to 5 to put in a photograph cluster on my wall. Here are a few examples: 

Thanks purpleone!

Misc. Wish List -

A DIY beginner yarn dying kit. A yarn dying how to book would be great too. I love all of these hand dyed yarns that are so beautiful and I'd love to give it a try!

A beginner amigurumi kit. Crochet would be okay as I am learning but if you have any patterns for a knit amigurumi that would be great too!

Wallflowers (refills or starter kits) from Bath & Body Works - Any scent is good but just not Fig, Cinnamon or anything spicy smelling. I like anything with vanilla the best.

My son is 2 years old and he loves anything with Bob the Builder. He also loves trucks and motorcycles.

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks anything from my list!!!

I claim CrossStitchinMomma for some wool that I'm going to dye that chocolate cherry color you want (i've been wanting to try to do that, anyway)

this is my first claim this round, and you have to be nice to me cause i'm the co-organizer - and I'm in wisconsin

wish list!


Purple and white, thick gloves (not mittens, please) or fingerless mitts in purple - I had gotten a pair of gloves that appear to be out of something similar to peaches n cream, in purple and white stripes, and one got lost.... and I could really use something to keep my hands warm for the october football games and still let me take pictures!

this felted backgammon board (or something similar)  http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_5311864,00.html

i love this felted bag - but i've never tried the double knitting

the felted monster slippers in the SNB book?

a flamenco skirt like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3905.msg29436#msg29436

a corset top - the kind with the mini-hooks up the front?  I have one, and i love it, would love another one!

can anyone figure out how to make a shrug jacket like this?  I LOVE this jacket, but this is the only picture I have of it

another big wish - the pants from Burda Pattern number 8316 - they're a pair of pants that I love - view A (long, not crops) in the smallest size (and we can talk about sizing) (I can provide pattern and fabric, I just need someone who's a better sewer than I to actually make 'em)

I love this corset top - can even send the fabric for it!

this skirt - anyone think they can find a pattern and make one?  it doesn't need to be so long... mid-calf would be perfect
http://www.shukronline.com/wt3601.html <-- received 1 skirt from Muria, I'm loving it, would love another one

If anyone loves to sew, I love this skirt!  would love a soft drapey sort of fabric

a shirt like this, but long enough to tuck in - PM for sizing, please

pattern for the Amy Butler Weekender bag? (unless someone wanted to make one for me?

i love the idea of this comic book clutch... anyone want to give it a try?


hand-spun yarn

hand dyed yarn - DK, sock or Lace weight

bare yarn, so that i can dye it, in lace, fingering or DK weight

crafting supplies:
  • soap making supplies - coconut oil, a soap making box mold
  • Size 4 circular needles that are 40" long
  • chunky weight wool - it's not like thick n quick, and it's not  like regular wool - it's somewhere in between, with a gauge of about 3-4 st. / 1 inch on about #8-10 needles...  anyway, in white, dark blue, forest green, deep purple, chocolate brown, something like that?
  • felting wool - i have a couple of projects that need felting wool, especially greens, purples, reds, both worsted weight and bulky weight - it can be undyed, and i can dye it myself


someone made me this bag - and it unfortunately met with a disaster... so i'd love a new one?

a yarn cozy like this?  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21691.msg176577#msg176577

stained glass pendant or bracelet, especially if it was dragonfly or butterfly or iris

home-crafted body balms or body butter

i've seen these record notebooks - anyone think they can make these?  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160934.msg1623605#msg1623605

Knitting and crocheting books - if one of these is just taking up space, I'd love to get a copy:
  • Fitted Knits: 25 Designs for the Fashionable Knitter
  • Twinkle's Big City Knits: 31 Chunky-Chic Designs
  • Bag Style: Innovative to Traditional, 22 Inspirational Handbags, Totes, and Carry-alls to Knit and Crochet 
  • Knit with Beads: Stunning Shawls and Wraps: Easy Techniques, 15 Beautiful Designs
  • Wrapped in Comfort: Knitted Lace Shawls

DIY kits:
  • drop spindle spinning
  • body butter
something inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea

and if i stall out the swap, someone yell at me, and i'll add more stuff.

... right... about me.  I'm the REALLY old lady in the crowd (even older since my last b'day, but i haven't hit 50 yet!), the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 2 teenagers, 1 of whom lives at home, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religious articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me
