Details of swap:
This is going to be our Yarnies Vs Sewists holiday wishlist swap! You do not have to have been a member of one of our Yarnies Vs Sewists swaps before this one.  
This swap is in wish list form which means anyone can claim you to craft for, and you may send to and receive from multiple people. The difference between this swap and a lot of wishlist swaps is: You can only ask for items that can be sewn, embroidered, knitted or crocheted. Hence: Yarnies vs. Sewists!
The minimum package to each person is 2 small items, or 1 medium. Items do not have to be holiday-themed.
Small and medium refer to time/effort or price, not actual physical size of item. What qualifies as a small item?
If you don't know what a small or medium is please click here to read the Craftster official definition  

FOC can have 3 claim/wishes outstanding at a time
First Time Swappers can have 1 claim/wish outstanding at a time
All other swappers can have 2 outstanding claims/wishes at a time
*if you want to send to more you will have to wait until a package is received.
You are not required to send more than once.  It is up to you if you decide to claim more times.  Just remember your krafty kharma and have fun with it and send something that you would like to receive in return.  

No matter what date you claim, the sendout deadline for everyone is December 1.  If you send out quickly and have a claim slot open due to a package being received (or a claim slot not picked already in the first place), you may select again so in theory you can pick several times in this swap!

*Friends of Craftster may claim up to 3 people at a time. (If you don't know how to become a FOC, just ask!]][https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php]
*non FOCs who have been in 1+ other swaps previously may claim up to 2 people at a time.
*first-time swappers may claim 2 (or 3 if a FOC) at a time after their 1st package has been received.
*No one may be picked an additional time until everyone has been picked.
*Claiming goes through the send-out date of December 1.   Each person can be picked as many times possible during the claiming period however I am going to not approve claims made to people who have been chosen 2 more times than they have claimed - to try and avoid a situation like someone gets picked 5 x and only sends out once  

What to post on your wishlist:
Write a mini bio including what country you are in, your holiday preferences (i.e., celebrating Christmas, Hannukah, Eid and/or Kwanzaa, plus whether you want to receive crafted items specifically for those holidays), allergies, any aversions to animal products, and preferences in colors, themes, patterns, etc. You should also add links to your wists, etsy favorites, or amazon.com wish list(s). You can make a Top Wishes list at the top. Being a Friend of Craftster also helps because of the additional info available in your profile.
You must have at least 5 crafted(yarnie or sewist) items on your list. You can include large items in your wish list, but the majority should be small and medium items, and there should be no disappointment or grumblings if you do not receive a large itemwere aiming for smalls and mediums!
How to claim:
Browse through everyones wishlists. Make sure the "who hasn't been picked" list is clear if you want to claim someone who has already been claimed. PM organizer with "YVS claim" as the subject and who you want to claim, and what for in the body. If approved, I will send you their questionnaire. Start crafting!

Sending and Receiving:
You can send the finished package as soon as youre ready, email both the organizer, co-organizer and the person you are sending to with the DCN or picture of the receipt. Subject should be YVS Sent. Same goes for when you receive, but subject line should be YVS Recvd.

A delivery confirmation number is required for all domestic shipments. If you are shipping internationally, you must save your receipt. If shipping from the U.S. to another country, as a courtesy please share the customs form number, because it can be used for basic tracking purposes, too.
You must PM organizer when after you have sent and received.

If you want to participate, information to send to pixieval and sinellia  (please put YVS Questionnaire as the subject):

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name and mailing address including the country

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 18 years old(YES/NO)
Have you read and understand all the rules and details?
Do you have a camera to take pictures of your presents? If not, please post this in the information section of your wishlist so your partner can take pictures before sending.
Can you list at least 5 yarnie and sewist items and/or supplies on your wishlist?

I usually approve within the same day, so please check your PMs before the end of your day and post your list. Try to get your wish list up quickly so we can keep the swap hopping.

I am almost 29 years old(on the 27 of this month!), married to a great Air Force guy, and have a beautiful daughter named Lily-Anne who is my world. She will be 3 in January. We live in Minot, ND USA with our 2 dogs Sammy and Charlotte. You can see a picture of them on my profile page. I love to crochet, am getting better at sewing, and have tried knitting a couple of times( and failed!). We celebrate Christmas, though not the religious part of it, but rather the family part of it. It snows a lot here, and most of the time it is under 15 degrees in the winter! Im hoping to help fulfill some of the gaps in my Christmas crafting! I would really love to get something for my best friend, she is a female boxer, a mother, works for Easter Seals, goes to school full-time has a toddler. She is my hero. I would love to get anything you can think of in a female boxer theme.

Part time Domestic Goddess, full time Art Geek

View Profile WWW available for personal swaps
« Reply #5 on: October 19, 2010 04:48:26 PM »

Hello! My name's Diana and I'm from southern California.
I live with my husband whom i recently married (Sept. 5th, 2008), my chihuahua mixed dog, Georgie and the newest addition to our family, my rat terrier dog Sophie. I'm a part time domestic goddess, but a full time art geek. I go to a local community college and am a Graphic Design major.
I am primarily a yarnie in craft (knit/crochet/spin). We do celebrate Christmas in this household, but mostly the family and cartoony side of it (food/cooking, family gathering, Charlie Brown Christmas, A Muppets Christmas Carol, etc.).
My favorite color scheme is pink-black-white. My favorite colors in order are pink, red, seafoam green, electric blue, and red-violet. I love polka dots, circles, argyle, and plaid. I also currently have an obsession with zebra stripes. I also love leopard print but in unnatural colors (I really dont like the orangey yellow and black spot). I have more info and links to my wist, facebook, etc on my profile.

For my boy dog, I love to see him in primary colors and anything you would typically associate with a little boy (like race cars, rocket ships, etc). He's typically a size "Small", but if you need any measurements I have them around here somewhere. He loves rope toys, plushies, and any treats that look and smell like something you would eat yourself.

For my girl dog, I kind of like to dress her like i would dress myself lol lots of pink, black, white, red, and purple. Lots of patterns esp. stripes, zebra print and leopard print.

For my hubby, his favorite color combination is blue-black-white. He prefers solid colors, stripes, and minimal designs.

Allergy note: I have a wool sensitivity, mostly around sensitive areas like my neck and my forehead. I have extremely sensitive skin, so no soaps or lotions with a lot of chemicals/artificial ingredients. Hypoallergenic, home made, or organic skin products only. My hubby is allergic to cat hair, so please wash anything that might be in contact with a cat.

My favorite scents are Vanilla, Strawberry, and Citrus.

Hi, I'm Ginger!  I'm 28 years old.  I usually spend most of my free time crafting.  Embroidery and crocheting are my two new favourite crafts!  I'm also an avid knitter, but not so great at machine-sewing.

I love dark purple/plum, green and teal, light blue...I wear mostly dark purple, black, and grey.  I love corduroy fabric, and velvet.
I dont like: extreme gore, cutesy stuff, pink, yellow, and orange...neon bright stuff, frilly girly...

knitted socks! (I've never succeeded in making myself a pair)

A fancy afghan (I lost the one my gram made for me as a baby Sad  )

Sewist Items

my name is courtney. im 26 and live in chicago, though im from michigan. i live with my boyfriend and our two cats. i think my black cat hester is perfect.  i work an office job and spend all day looking forward to coming home at night to craft (knit, crochet and aimgurumi)
i do celebrate xmas, but not in a traditional religious manner. i do like xmas elves a lot though, and am not opposed to xmas decor.  
colors i like are black, earthy and dark greens, and purples. not a fan of very bright colors. i seem to lean towards kinda dark and gothy looking things, or fantasy inspired stuff. i like victorian stuff too.  i also love anything that falls under the category of "creepy cute".

Im Amy, a 37 year old mom of 2 girls, ages 10 & 12.  I live in Washington State in the wet, wet, cold & wet Pacific Northwest in the USA. Did I mention it's the wet season?  Wink  We celebrate Christmas and have the added bonus of kidnapping my MIL, this year.  It will be our first Christmas spent with her.  Im not really interested in receiving items for a specific holiday, Id prefer something I can use year around.  

Ive been sewing for 30 years now and especially love quilting.  I also enjoy knitting and crochet, but am painfully slow at both.  I so admire all of you that can rock the yarnie skills.

Weve all got asthma in my home, so please if youve got critters or smoke, send things that I can wash.  Don't worry about prewashing, I can do it when they arrive.  I love most colors but dont really care for neons or pastels.

Hello.  My name is Julie.  I live in Houston TX (well, tiny town ten minutes outside of Houston but close enough?).  I am currently in graduate school studying Gifted and Talented education.  I am certified to teach High School English.  I work for IT for my university.  I have no idea how that happened either.  I am engaged to a lovely man who is living far away because hes in med school.  In my family, we celebrate non-religious Christmas, Eid (the mister) and Chinese New Years (me) but we rarely decorate for the holidays so I would prefer receiving everyday items instead of holiday items.

I have a dog at home.  His name is Loki.  Yes, he lives up to his name.  He eats everything in sight.

I love all colors but I especially like red, white and black.  My bedroom is decorated in blues and tans.  I dont care for bright orange unless it is paired with other bright colors.  I also do not care for camo or paisleys.  

You can learn a lot more about me on my profile or the following links:


I will keep adding to my list as I think of things.

Things in red are my OMG I NEEDS IT OR I WILL DIEEEEEEEE list.  =)


- Matching pillow covers for two 20" by 20" pillows on my sisters couch in one of the following themes: Spring, Summer, Valentines, Easter, Fourth of July.  These will end up in her stocking.  Im making her a fall, winter, halloween, and christmas one but need help finishing the rest I came up with ideas for all of them and found all the fabric in my stash.  i have to make them myself now.  =/  i knew i shouldn't have gone digging in my fabric scraps....

-Quilt blocks 12 by 12 in whatever pattern, whatever colors.  Im gathering quilt blocks made by other people to put together a LOOK AT HOW MANY PEOPLE LOVE ME! quilt.  =P

- fabric baskets in cute patterns/colors that remind you of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle similar to these as they will be hung up like these: http://www.u-createcrafts.com/2010/07/creative-guest-hanging-storage-baskets.html

-a lunch box in adult patterns.  Pinks or purples maybe.  Like this: http://www.prudentbaby.com/2009/09/diy-fabric-lunch-bag.html

 -very very sturdy dog toys, preferably with squeekers.  Loki will chew through and eat anything.  Please dont use chip bags in it, those take him all of 5 minutes to get through and then he eats the bag, which makes him sick

- a poppet whom I can make clothes for.  With purple eyes and black hair, if possible.

-finger puppets- a doctor's office set would be AWESOME!

-Embroidery for my hoopla wall. Theme ideas? alice in wonderland, nature, cutesy stuff, victorian, pretty much anything goes except for those cats in aprons which scare the everliving bejeesus out of me.  =D

- a pretty patchwork Lolita skirt in shades of pink, blue, OR blacks and whites.  (lolita skirt is basically a rectangle 3x the waist size, gathered onto a waist band.  my waist is 30 inches, hips are 36 inches.  a zipper and half-elastic waist band would be AWESOME (provides a little give in case i gain/lose weight. lol).  20 inches in length, including the waist band)

- any pretty lolita skirt in whatever colors, neutral or classic prints would be best so i can wear it to work.  i can't wear bright colored skirts to work.  see details above.  =)


-Jayne hat from firefly THANK YOU, DesignVigilante!

-Minion - http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2010/07/despicable-minion.html

-A pretty shawl for my mum

-A horde of octopuses in any and all colors.  We have an octopus wall at work.  They are crawling down the side of a cubicle.  There is currently only one octopus.  =/ THANK YOU SUNSPOTTED!

-Fingerless gloves in a neutral color.  My fingers get cold and I get unhappy.
THANK YOU, wonderwoman1976!

-ONE OF THESE! - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351377.msg4100155#msg4100155 THANK YOU SPOTNIK!


- fabric fat quarter sized or smaller.  As long as its at least 8" by 8", I want it.  Cottons are best.  dig through your scrap box!  =D

- Embroidery floss.  I need lots all the time

- Thread Heaven

-buttons.  Just plain solid color buttons in any size

-double fold bias tape.  If you make it yourself, I will LOVE you forever!  I love unique bias tape

- a nice pair of small embroidery scissors.  Ive lost mine again

-heck, if you want to send me an envelope stuffed with polyfil, Ill take it.  =P

- a 2.5 square template ruler thing for quilting. I spaced and cant remember what its called.  Heck, any sized template ruler thing for quilting would be great.
