Hi there! I'm Erikka from Ontario, Canada. I'm a stay at home mom to 4 kids aged 10, 6, 3 and 8 months. I homeschool the oldest 3. I practice all nature of cruchy-ness. Homeschooling, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, breastfeeding and baby wearing. I love getting reusable versions of things that are usually disposable. Cloth diaper are a current obsession. I love faeries, anything with a skully print, Tim Burton, retro stuff and pin up girls. I have a naughty side and a twisted sense of humour so feel free to indulge me. Smiley I love the colour black and any bright coloured/black combo. I also love brown and pink. Natural colours are also a-ok. I'm not a big fan of white, pastels or neons. I crochet, sew, cross stitch and scrapbook.  I'm a gardener so anything garden related is also good. I love knitted things and would love to learn to knit but my brain just can't seem to make sense of it. Lol I am very easy to please and in love with all things handmade!! Cheesy

I'm Erica, from Texas! I'm young to the world, with old-lady tendencies. I love to knit and crochet, but prefer to make toys or "NSFW" stuff. (thus showing my true age) I'm a Firefighter/EMT for my tiny little town of just barely 18,000. I like anything cutesy, hand-made, personalized, or funky (no rainbows, please!) my favorite color (much to the chagrin of my fellow brothers at the station) is PINK. HOT, BLINDING, PINK. (and others are Blue, any shade, Black, emerald green, and dark, woodsy brown)
I'm a very small person, just barely 5'2".
I am ALLERGIC to LATEX, so please don't use/wear latex around/on any crafts that are going to be sent to me. I end up having to go to the hospital, and it gets very expensive, and very annoying. (Latex has a very fine powder that rubs off onto anything you touch, and it's that powder that will hurt me) Thank you!
Also, no kids, no pets (used to live in apartments that didn't allow pets, and I haven't got one yet. I used to have rats, when I still lived with my dad (in high school). and I'm planning my wedding to my high-school sweetheart!
I don't usually wear earrings or rings... but I will wear bracelets and necklaces.
I love to cook/bake, so any neat-o cookie cutters you know of/find would be awesome
I have a lot of things that could be inspiring on my wists* http://wists.com/schultebunny I'm more than happy to answer any questions you have, though! BUT, here's my wishlist:

*my Wists are kept updated! all crafty wists are under the "craftster" tag! (things that I want that I find on Craftster...)

-Arm warmers (to wear at work)
-knitted or crocheted socks (the funkier, the better. I'm weird like that!)
-Cupcake Beanie (pink icing, light brown cake)
-Anything Little Big Planet related-I just got LBP2 ! yay! I'd love to get a plushie handmade Sackboy...
-a DPN holder like this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368831.0
-or a neat little NSFW stress ball: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=274511.0
-a VERY NSFW pillow... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113346.0 in slightly tanned skin tone "DD" size (will be a surprise for fianc)
-I would LOVE this bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323658.0
-I can't find a picture of one, but I want a small-ish bag (that I can put around my wrist/elbow) that I can carry a skein/ball of yarn around in for when I'm traveling/waiting in line/etc.... something lined with satin/some sort of slick cloth (I usually throw my hook/needles in there so I don't lose them) so that the yarn pulls smoothly. This one here: http://www.wists.com/schultebunny/b4abfdbabd3ba3bab67aa92963b3b2ce
-and this for my couch: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322650.0

Misc stuff:
-Charms (of anything, really. I've got a charm bracelet that I'm working very hard at overloading!)
-anything that's itty-bitty-mini-sized (like me!) that I can show off at work, or at home. I LOVE tiny things!
-one of those puzzle-keepers.. I love puzzles, but I use my dining table to work on, as well as eat on, so I have to put my puzzles away when I'm done.
-I'm trying to get enough fire department patches to cover a twin size blanket (for when I'm on duty for 24 hours...), so your local fire department patch.. if you talk to the chief, and ask him about a department patch, they might be able to sell you one. (they are only like, $5 max.) I'd LOVE to get a NYFD patch...

-or any kind of soft, fuzzy, squishy yarn (to please my yarn-addicted-brain) from a specialty shop (or you!)... I pretty have/had every possible yarn from walmart and hobby lobby.. some hand-made yarn would be AWESOME if you know how to spin yarn. not picky on colors!
-a drop spindle? to spin my own yarn (and maybe a small tutorial with pictures? or you could email me a short video, which ever's easier...) I'd love to learn to spin my own yarn (mom's got 2-3 cats that she brushes every day.. all with long, soft fur...)

all in all, I'm not terribly picky, I like to see what other people make, kinda like having a reminder of who made that item. I'm terribly easy to please! Thanks for choosing me! Grin Grin Grin

Hi everyone!  I'm Rachel and I live in Alberta Canada with Crash and Jack, my two cats.  My style is pretty bold (some may say tacky).  I love bright colours, shiny things, animal prints.  Crocheting and cross stitch/embroidery are my favourite crafts to do.


Cat toys - My babies are waaaaay spoiled, so anything that would make them happy will make me happy!

Earrings:  I wear em all the time, but I can't wear posts, only the hook kinds.  I love flashy, dangly ones the best

Bracelets:  I looove bangles, especially the big chunky ones.  I'd also really love a loaded charm bracelet, or even just some little bits I could use if I ever made one of my own

Netbook cover:  I have a Dell mini, and would love a cool sleeve for it, especially one that zips shut and has a handle.

Apron:  I collect them, especially ones a 50's housewife would wear. I love half aprons, but don't have any full ones, so either would be loved

Makeup brush roll

Crochet hook roll

Cloth pads (big wish)

iPod cozy

Blackberry case (especially if it matched the iPod cozy...)

Pin cushion and/or needle book

Knitted wrist warmers


**Major wish**  Handspun or hand-dyed wool...  It's so pretty, and every skein is unique.

Scrapbook supplies:  My sister just got married in Vegas and I'm making her a book, so anything weddingy/vegasy would be awesome, but really, anything pretty would be appreciated.

Cooking stuff:  I love to cook and bake, especially cupcakes!  Some cute cupcake papers, or decorations, or any sort of supplies...  Even a book or your favourite recipes!

Card making supplies:  Stamps, punches, pens, paper...  I'm just getting started with this hobby so I've only got a bit


I'd love a surprise!  I have a pretty extensive wist, anything from it or inspired by it would make me so very happy...   www.wists.com/evil_rachel_25

Candy!!  Especially chocolate, or fruity candy.  You just can't go wrong with candy, right?

Coffee/tea/hot drinky stuff:  I'm a caffeine addict, and in the winter I need something hot to get started in the morning.  Even something drink-related, like a cup or a travel mug cozy or reusable to-go cup sleeve!

Howdy! VegasZombie here, but you can call me Zombs (or anything really).  I currently reside in Las Vegas, NV, but am originally from the Dallas, TX area. My SO and I moved out here in 1997 so he could deal poker (legally). We have a 2 year old black & tan dachshund named Rascal and an evil rat named Elwood. Im a pretty easy going kinda person and one of the most indecisive people you will ever meet. This tidbit is important when you get to my list. ha ha!

I am allergic to Tide detergent, Poison perfume and apparently rabbits. Found that last one out the hard way.

Just a side note: I have never seen or read any of the Harry Potter stuff or the Twilight stuff nor have I viewed any of the Lord of the Rings movies. I know little to nothing about them. Well, I know that vampires shouldnt sparkle, hobbits have giant hairy feet and my friend insists some guy name Snape is the best thing since sliced white bread. Ha!

There are a lot of things in my wist (http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie) for ideas & wisty surprises always rock! My profile also has too much information.

Crafted item ideas
  B-movie monster or psychobilly theme purse. Something small enough to take to the rock show, but big enough to hold a few things.

  Bag - I am a bag ummmm collector. I think I have more bags (like tote bags) than I do clothes. See my themes section for, well, themes. Ha!

  Hair flowers and various other hair doodads - there is a metric crapton on the wist  Cheesy

  Small altered art shrine or curio cabinet

  Odd creature wall art this does not have to be big and can be any medium

  Handmade bath items just nothing uber flowery

  Oddball stuffies

  Weird sock monkeys example: http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie/a2e284e9631d0b60df56f210d66c39b3?offset=20

  Bookcover wallet the cheesier the better; like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167691.0

  Amigurumi The only ones I currently own are Hans Solo and Leia (linked in my profile)

  Bottle cap necklace(s) - Retro, psychobilly, monster, not picky

  Reusable Swiffer pads

  Dish towels I pretend the kitchen is themed, but really it isnt. My current dishtowels are maroon-ish because that kinda matches the fake cherry cabinets.

  Placemats Retro-esque, B-movie, Psychobilly, Dachshund. Any theme is a good theme.

  Hoopla-esque wall hangings - creatures, monsters, one-liners (the more sarcastic the better)

  Dachshunds particularly smooth red and smooth black & tan
  Zombies or zombified things
  Psychobilly / Rockabilly
  Coffee I long ago had my blood replaced with it
  B-Movie monsters
  New Orleans I am beyond obsessed with the place
  Dia de los Muertos
  Kilted anything. Mmmmm. Kilts

Craft Supplies

  Bits and pieces odd charms, watch pieces, broken jewelry, etc.
  DMC thread
  Cross stitch fabric
  E-6000 because you can never have too much
  DIY Resin Jewelry Kit
  Poly clay
  Small embroidery hoops
  Interesting beads and findings
  Fabric, trim, notions
  Drawing notebooks I have two nephews that will draw on every scrap of paper they can get their hands on.

  Candy! *giggle*
  Items local to your area preserves, beverages, pet rocks anything

Thanks for taking the time to read all the way to this point and if you decide to craft for me.... thank you very much!

Hi, I'm greenfaerie from Charleston, SC. My husband and I live with our two kitties, and work together in our own art-related business.  I love to cook, especially Asian (usually Korean, yum yum), Mexican, and Lowcountry food. Smiley  I love tea, hot and sweet, lol, and am learning to make great bread.  I am a hippie, an Art Nouveau/Mucha/Belle Epoque  and steampunk freak, and quite the geek. Smiley

I love cats, owls, steampunk, art nouveau, cranes/egrets, Korean and Chinese characters, lanterns, mushrooms, peace symbols, groovy fabrics, stars, tigers, retro/vintage etc.

I don't like comic sans, cheaply made thoughtless crafts, scratchy synthetic yarn, anything cartoony without being geeky.  Think Pottery Barn + etsy vs. Walmart and mass produced.  Doesn't have to be pricey, just sophisticated.


Major wish! Ironing board cover in funky, retro fabrics or black and white (or black/white/red) bold graphics/damask.

Flannel unpaper towel with or without snaps.  I have my own holder and it's red.

Anything on wist!

Major major wish! A camera bag based on the shoot sac that will hold at least 3 lenses.  I can give you dimensions.  Needs to be a neutral dark color like black or charcoal gray. http://shootsac.com/shootsaclensbag.aspx

1950's style apron.  PM for size!

Cat hammock for 25 lbs of cats.  I think both would get in there together.  http://www.catabove.com/cat-hammock-stand-and-hammock.html  or one based off the "make a shelf and pad it" theory

Hooplas on a theme of cats, geekery, Charleston (NOT rainbow row!), gnomes, etc.  Just anything from stalking me i'd like. 

Anything based on Prague or Paris. 

A classy and crazy fascinator.

Stenciled tea towels - Beatles/60's themed hippie references, Asian graphics, or anything in clean graphics inspired by my wist/stalking.

Headbands for a larger width head. Smiley

Big earrings (prefer not gold)

Loaded bracelet 8" in pirate, cat, Harry Potter, etc theme.


Foreign language newspaper or books (other than Spanish, as I have ready access to Spanish materials for crafts)
Shrinky dinks
Cotton, bamboo, or other nice feeling yarns
Jewelry findings, must be hypoallergenic (michael's carries copper ones that are super cheap, silver or ss is good, too)
Paper punches
Glass glitter
Really large crochet hooks - bigger than N (can be the huge ones for rugs)
Stuff to make scrabble pendants/glass tile pendants, etc
Retro embroidery patterns
Any of those "floursack" towels
Acid free pens
Metal stamps
Big wish > ruffler  or other odd feet for my Singer! Cheesy
sculpey/polymer clay
glass beads of all sorts

Any craft books you'd like to pass on that aren't about country crafts or knitting.  I love knitting, but just can't get the hang of it!  lol


Big collection of Kenmore presser feet to swap/trade/sell!!  Ruffler foot, etc.  Please PM for details!
Summer is finally here again!

Hi, my name is Amanda, I live in Chicago (USA) and got married May of last year. I have a very annoying and loud cat that I love anyway.... I'm a FOC because I felt I needed to support the site that always inspires me and puts me in a good mood.

My wist - www.wists.com/siakela (I have a tag just for craftster! the tags might help going through the wist cause it's pretty long)

Charm Bracelet(s) (7-8inch probably my fav jewelry right now)
Wall art (specifically I'm starting a hoop wall.... Cheesy )
Cards (like the sort to give out for bdays, xmas etc)
Decorative storage (maybe fabric boxes? those collapse so they should be easier to ship)
Necklace 15-18inch in length
A altered art journal with different colored pages, and maybe inspiring quotes (this would be very awesome!)
Anything inspired by my wist Cheesy

Themes I enjoy (in no particular order):
Harry Potter (Slytherin - anime style Draco *grin*)
Wheel of Time
Tamora Pierce
Star Trek the Next Generation
Chicago skyline
Leo (zodiac)
Dungeons and Dragons (if you can think up something useful to a gamer even better!)
World of Warcraft
Firefly/Serenity (Angel, Buffy, Joss Whedon...)
Texas Hold-em Poker (it was a minor wedding theme)
Martial Arts (my school http://www.miyamaryumidwest.com/)
Dragons/pheonix/unicorns (Harry Potter inspired lol)
And of course many other things on my wist

Colors I like:
Mostly anything, but the brighter the better. I'm also not usually fond of oranges or browns unless they're used with something else. I like big bold patterns.

Note: I didn't sort by large, medium, small because I figure a lot of my items could fall in multiple catagories. I'll leave it up to the swapper.

Hi! My name is Jessica, I live in  NY. I'm 24, I have a 14 year old sister, 5 cats and 2 dogs (a Chow/Lab mix and a Peek-a-Poo (Pekinese/Poodle)). I love (absolutely LOVE) zombies, outerspace, cephalopods, and lately I've been into Steampunk. I have been crafting extensively lately to distract myself from being semi-jobless and very bored! I crochet like crazy and have just started to make a lot of jewelry. My favorite color is black, but I also love red. I hate pink and am not a fan of blue either. My room is painted burnt orange (the walls that aren't wood) and the ceiling is also the same orange.

As for crafted items I would like, first I would look at my wists: wists.com/Alchamy513.

Other than that I like big bags, arm warmers, earrings, stuffed animals, pillows, pillowcases, hats, and wall art.

More specifically I'd love drum pads for my wii RockBand drums, the kinds that muffle the sound a little but you can still play with them on.

I love tutus! Look on my wists, anything black or black and red.

Also, I have a lot of square pillows on my bed that I would love covers for. They're from an old couch and loveseat set we had and they're pretty much normal throw pillow size in two sizes. I have 4 larger ones and 2 smaller ones (I can measure them later if needed).

I'd love anything steampunk related, clothing and accessories, nothing too girly, though.

A cat bed (anything soft, my kitties love that sort of stuff) or a bandana for my bigger dog (like a full handkerchief size that we fold in half, that just fits around her neck), she loves her pretties

Also, I've been looking on Craftster and I'm in love with the loaded charm bracelets or shrinky dink ones! I'd say a zombie, octopus, outerspace, or steampunk one with lots of gears would be amazing!

Any supplies I would like: I love (LOVE) handspun or handpainted yarn in pretty much any color. Or any yarn, especially worsted weight to fuel my amigurumi making obsession.

Did I mention I love yarn?

Also any steampunk parts like broken old watches or watch pieces, gears and faces especially.

As for non-crafted stuff, I love chocolate, especially with peanutbutter in it, and Cadburry cream eggs.

Also, I don't have any allergies but I don't like flowery scents at all.

Hi all!  My name is Meg and I live in Southern Vermont where the snow is just gorgeous right now and ripe for both shoveling and sledding (and skiiing if ya got the dough...) thelastkodama is my wonderful daughter and it was she who introduced me to Craftster (thanks Rosie!!) I write for children (am halfway thru a novel featuring a ten-year-old girl named Satchel), rescue feral cats, and love to garden and eat vegetarian food. I am a real country girl at heart - would love to be self-sustaining if I could set myself up for it, like if my clay soil would cooperate or my body would stop wrecking itsself,lol.

I just got my computer back from the shop so I am excited to be able to post again.

Here is a list of items (all of which can be seen on my wist page, http://www.wists.com/blupaisan )I would just love to receive from an angel like you:

the calico cloche hat in turquoise shades

the dutch doll amiguri

the brown pillow

bayberry candles, made from real bayberries

the crochet necklace

a giant fabric bowl in reds, whites, and yellows

any of the cuff bracelets


soap on a rope

ball soaps

any 60s vintage linens

that mushroom belt, size large

skeleton key earrings

Smalls -
any wacky and I do mean wacky earrings ( I have scorpion ones, bubblegum ones, tootsieroll ones, dog tag ones, stuff like that.)

anything in miniature times two that I will then make into earrings

hand carved kittycat stamps

dryer balls

a reusable paper towel or two

embroidery floss, any colors

THanks for looking!  Meg

About me:
I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband and a house full of stuffies (a growing group led by one very opinionated stuffed puppy), and soon to be a baby.  I am a graduate student currently, and really can't decide what the future holds...

I would very strongly prefer if things came from a smoke free home due to allergies.  I have sensitive skin and cannot wear jewellery that isnt gold.  

My favourite colours are black, rosy (or muted) pink, dark purple, and red (especially dark or cranberry coloured reds).

I am always happy to answer questions, or provide clarification as I do not have a wist or a blog and I know I am not always as specific as I should be.

My Wishlist:
I love M*A*S*H, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Calvin and Hobbes so just about anything related to those themes will be loved.
Any baby things along the above themes.  

Please note I may have miscategorised things, if so please label them by size as you feel is appropriate

A small Zippered Purse (about 9in long, 6 high, 1.5 deep give or take, with an interior zippered pocket)
Stacking Dolls (fabric, crocheted, or wooden) in the theme of Star Trek TNG, Star Trek DS9, or M*A*S*H
A stuffed puppy of any variety
An orange cat puppet similar to the cats shown in muppet movies
A Star Trek Starship/Space Station Mobile for the baby
A wallet like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/55161829/bibi-bifold-pocket-wallet-with-long) out of cute or plaid fabric.
Felted Frog Flipper Slippers to look like Kermit the Frogs Feet (I have wide Ladies Size 6 feetI can provide measurements if necessary)
A Coraline Doll

Hand Carved Stamps (nature themed, science themed, transportation themed, snowflakes, or any of the above mentioned themes)
Embroidered, screened, or stencilled hankies
Cloth pads (with snap wings, and a waterproof layer)
Small monster stuffie (like an Ugly doll or the Monster Factory)
Any of Alan Dart's Wallace and Gromit or Shaun the Sheep Knitting Patterns
Alan Darts Westie Knitting Pattern
Superwash Sock Yarn preferably with natural fibre content and in colours my husband will like (hes more of a sock knitter than I am)
Baby shoes (see http://www.wists.com/babysabertooth for ideas, or use the themes listed above).
Altered board books including any of the themes listed anywhere in the wishlist, or dinosaurs.

Buttons for clothing projects
Stitch markers (for knitting or crochet)
Handmade Cards (fairly multi purpose, would love if they had messages on the inside though (I have trouble filling all the empty space in blank cards))
Fabric napkins
Collage Supplies like really old books or Interesting papers
Handmade soap especially spiced and other food scents
Fat Quarters or Fussy Cut Squares for an I-spy Quilt (PM me if you have questions about this one)

Thanks in advance.

Hi my name is Chris.  Im 34 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea crittersnot so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  Im not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive wist and do keep it up to date.  Id love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  If you do pick something off my WIST please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.

Crafty items

- Dish towels.  I turned a bunch or mine that were looking shabby into rags.  Now I need some cute new ones.  I dont really have a color scheme in the kitchen but like greens, blues, browns or red and blacks.  Embroidered, sewn with cute material, appliquopen to any.  I like cute designs with kitchen themes (appliances, food, herbs, etc.) or any animal or nature theme.

- BIG WISH - An ironing mat (a large one around 30 x 20 would fit my table well but smaller is ok)

- A needlebook to hold my embroidery needles.  Im not picky about style.  See my wists or above for themes I might like and surprise me.

- Dog dish mat.  Our new rescue lab is a messy drinker so something to help contain all the water splashes would be great.  Needs to be about 12 wide to fit in the feeding area.  Length is less important maybe around 20.  The dogs are both labs one fox red the other black.

- Knitting stitch markers.  Im open to almost anything for thesesurprise me. 

- Knitting needle case/holder/roll.  Id love something like this =tags&includes[1]=title&filter[0]=handmade] one that has different size pockets, including shorter ones for dpns, and wide pockets for circles, and other supplies.

- A knitting project bag/tote.  Just a small to medium sized bag that can hold a skein or two a yard and my needles.

- Handmade beauty products.  Cold press soaps, body butter or lotion, lip balm, etc.  Id love just about anything except bath oils, bath bomb, or any bath thing (I rarely take baths) and I dont really care for most of the melt and pour soaps.  I prefer natural scents, most fruit smells (citrus, pear, berry), vanilla, rosemary, lavender, green tea, oatmealjust nothing with too heavy a perfume smell.  Soap in manly scents for my husband is good too.

- Sea creature stuffies or amigurumi.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.

- Otter soap dishes   Love these ottersany potters out there who want to make me one of these?

Help me decorate my craft room.  The walls are an apple green.  The furniture is dark brown and white.  Im using these colors with splashes of orange and rusts.  Some pics of the craft room organizers and idea of color schemes  here and here

-  Pillowsabove colors and themes.  I have a tan futon in the craft room and need to add some pillows for comfort and to give it some color.  I want a few bolster type pillows for the arms and lots of various sized square and rectangle.  Really Id be happy with any size shape.  I can stuff or buy a form to make it easier for you to ship.

-  Wall art I would love some art to hang on my walls.  Sea creature themed would be great. I like wood block/altered paper type art.  I always like embroidered wall hangings as well.  Or get creative.   There are several examples of things I like on my Wist.

-  Print/stencil t- shirts womens size XL (or XXL if sizes run small) preferred colors: brown, dark red/maroon, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage).  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See wists for some examples.  I tend to like v- necks better but any style collar is ok.  Have some great ones from puzzler and some on there way from babalina but can always use more in other colors/designs.  Long-sleeved would be great for this time of year.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1Xsame themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, or grays. 

-  Knit or crochet slippers, nice and thick (wool is great) to keep my toes warm on those cold Alaska days. I like the Mary Jane and ballet styles.  I wear a womans size 8 shoe. Again see Wist for examples of styles I like.

- Reusable cloth menstrual pads.  Mostly panty liners like these but also a couple of longer, thicker overnight ones.

- Reusable swiffer covers. 

-BIG WISH- Soapmaking supplies or a learn to make soap kit.  Im not really interested in the melt and pourlooking for cold press soap.  This is actually for my husbandhe wants to learn to make soap and I want to encourage him to craft.  We dont have anything so any supplies and/or ingredients at all will be much appreciated (we do have a local source for lye and some very basic oils).   

- Knitting needles Im just learning to knit and only have a few needles so almost any size would be great (so far I have regular size 6 and 8 and dpns in smaller sizes 000-2, 4).  I prefer wood or bamboo.  I would also love some circular needles (I have only size 9).

- Felt wool felt or eco felt (please no cheap acrylic felt sheets from the craft store).  I can use all colors. 

- birdseye diaper cloth

-  Embroidery pattern transfer paper or pens.  I like the ones that disappear with water best but any type is fine. 

-  Bias tape makers. Any size but   to 1 inch would probably get the most use

-  Serger thread cones in sets of 2-4 please.  Black, Brown, Tan, White, Greens

-  Pinking shears

-  Rotary cutter blades, regular and pinking (45 and/or 28mm size)

-  Fun modern material: fat quarters or charm packs would be awesome!  Quilting cotton.  I would love to have more modern fun prints like Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Michael Miller, etc.  I have some I like on my wist and on my  amazon wish list

-  Home dec weight material.  Bright modern prints or nature prints with leaves, trees, birds, etc.
- Glass eyes.  Small sizes from 3- 6mm.  Solid black or black w/clear iris or dog or cat irises in shades of brown and green.

- Yarn - open to any color and type.  Would love to have some more sock and fingerling weight yarn.  Prefer wool and wool blends but will take acrylic if it's nice.

I love the Ernst Haeckel art forms in nature type books and CDs.
An encyclopedia of embroidery stitches type book.
