Details of swap:
Please do not post in the thread until you have been approved by the organizer. This Board is for lists only.  The discussion/gallery thread is located here.  Post as soon as possible after signing up so we know you have found the thread and that you are getting updates.

This is a supplies swap, not a crafted items swap.

1 - This swap is NOT chain style.  You may choose from anyone's list once they are posted. This means you may receive a different number of packages than the number you send. I encourage everyone to try and keep claims somewhat balanced. I try to claim people who have sent more than they received.

2 – Each claim in this swap should consist of at least $20 worth of supplies. Supplies may be from your stash, bought new, or bought second hand. Supplies should be in good, usable condition.

3 - You may have up to 2 claims outstanding at a time unless you are FOC, then you may have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time. Outstanding means unsent - once you have submitted your DC# or a picture of your international receipt you may claim again.

4 - Once you have been approved, you may post in the list thread.  Your post should look like this:
         - your location and a brief bio (include allergies in red please)
         - your likes and dislikes (such as colors, patterns, etc)
         - your list of supplies you would like to receive – this is all your basic needs as well as coveted supplies.

5 - Remember, the more items and bigger variety of items you have on your list the more likely it is for you to be chosen.  

6 - If you are flaked on, you will only receive an angel for as many packages as you have sent.  If you were claimed for 3 packages and you sent 2 packages and one package was flaked on - you will not receive a swap angel.

7 - When you wish to choose someone, please send a PM to the Organizer and the Receiver.  At that point, please request the address from the receiver. Include what you will be sending and the due date.

8 - Everyone must make at least ONE claim.

9 - Required: good communication! This means keeping the organizer informed and replying in a reasonable amount of time.
All PMs should be copied to the organizer
PM to choose someone and get their address
PM the DC# or receipt when a package is sent
PM when you receive as well as posting a 'Thank You' in the gallery (even if you can't take photos).  
Please put "Swap Your Stash" in the subject line of all PMs.  At the minimum, please tell if it is a send or receive, the sender’s username, receivers username and the item.  Otherwise I may go a tad crazy trying to figure it out.

10 - It is your responsibility to make notes in your bio or list about color/size/material preferences, allergies, and when an item has been received (delete it if you do not desire duplicates). Be specific enough so that you are sent items you want, but beware being too picky or people might not choose you. Communication is key for happy swappers.

11 – When all claims have been made (March 31) all participants names will be put in a hat as many times as they made claims and one name will be randomly selected. This participant will receive a small extra package that may include supplies and/or small crafted items.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap: Swap Your Stash March 2012
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country as it would appear on an address label
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

My name’s Cady and I live in Portland, OR with my 4-year-old son, Max, and my husband Matt. We like reading, crafting, playing outside, geocaching, games, and are a whole house of geeks. We all especially love dragons. I love purple, earth tones, and jewel-like colors. I also love geeky/techie stuff to craft with.

•   Woodburning tips compatible with Walnut Hollow like stamps or hot knife
•   Rare earth magnets
•   Some sort of thread storage container
•   Cool crochet/knit patterns, mostly toys or amigurumi like dragons
•   Metal scales
•   Seed beads, size 11, opaque colors
•   Needle nose pliers
•   Nymo beading loom thread
•   Adjustable beading loom (this is definitely a big, not a medium)
•   Leather pieces – quality lace or pieces over a square foot
•   Colored machine cut jump rings – most sizes (for chainmail, not beading, so thicker is better)
•   Poly beads
•   End nipper pliers
•   Safety eyes and noses – most any shape/size/color
•   Tiny glass eye beads - black or colored
•   Yarn – I have enough plain acrylic (think red heart) but will always be happy to see wool, cotton, bamboo, mohair, or something really cool. Single skeins are fine as I do lots of small projects. I prefer natural tone colors – blues, greens, purples, and autumn tones, but can find a use for crazy colors if they’re cool enough.  
•   I love handspun anything.
•   Also seeking boucle yarns in any natural fibers
•   I'm especially looking for 100% wool yarn in shades of gray. Also maybe tanish/redish (the colors of river rocks). It doesn't need to be a whole skein, a small leftover ball is fine, any gauge will work.
•   Wool roving for spinning or needle felting
•   Wool stuffing
•   Silicone molds of various shapes. I have enough squares and hearts, though.
•   Canning funnel
•   Small spray bottles
•   Small squeeze bottles
•   Mannequin head (for taking hat pics)
•   Wool felt, even small amounts
•   Wood buttons
•   Scrabble tiles or other non-plastic game pieces
•   Liquid watercolors
•   Watercolor paper
•   Magnetic clasps
•   Stencils of animals, cars, trees, or similar
•   Needle book
•   Beading needles
•   Cotton piping

Most of these are listed again on pinterest, some with more details if you need them. http://pinterest.com/saintcady/craft-supplies/

Hi I'm Emma, living in Ann Arbor MI, going to school for an art degree! I love vivid colors (except neon/pastels) especially jewel tones. I dabble in anything and everything but lately my crafting obsessions have been making Teesha Moore style items, embroidery, and mixed media art.

cutting blades for a lino cutter tool (already have the tool) http://pinterest.com/pin/220606081716468823/

fabric scraps for Teesha Moore work - I'd rather not get a whole package of scraps but if your package needs filler or protection I'd love scraps to do the job!

inkodye!! Would love love love some of this to play with, already have the blue-green color. http://pinterest.com/pin/220606081716786185/

bag/purse handles - these would go on Teesha Moore bags so anything you think would work with that

acid dyes (blue, red, green, purple, yellow only if sending along either blue or red so I can mix colors)

unusual embroidery hoop sizes - I have plenty circular hoops but I love ovals or other unusual shapes

My name is Roxanne and I live in Maryland.  I have a 7 year old daughter named Lana and she was raised on Craftster love!  Lots of my crafting revolves around my daughter and her classmates.  I bake for them, make things for them, and even have had many wonderfully Craftster friends make things for them (pencil pouches, bags, etc.)  I love to craft…it’s my therapy.  I love making jewelry and dabbing in crochet/knitting/sewing/papercrafts.  

- Beads for my jewelry work (any plain glass, interesting acrylic, Swarovski, stone, pearls).  I've been making random bead necklaces, in addition to my regular stuff, so stray beads are good.  Smiley  I have lots of foil, ceramic, wood, seed, and bugle beads ATM.  Thanks!  Smiley
- silver charms for my charm bracelets
- brass/silver stampings/charms of birds, octopi, owls, mermaids, etc. that I can use in my Steampunk work
- silver plated findings (eyepins, jump rings, chain, etc.)
- things to stamp: aluminum disks, sterling silver disks, silver plated utencils, etc.
- bias tape, esp the thin double fold ones so that I can edge baby bibs
- metal zippers 6-7" for bracelets
- wool felt sheets for felt dolls
- M&P soap base
- Silicone molds of various shapes. Hearts would be loved.
- Good quality solid colored scrapbooking paper
- Any unloved  Sizzix dies for the original machine
- Any unloved Cuttlebug dies
- Any unloved  Cricut cartridges

You can check out my Pinterest to see what crafts I do:

Hi my name is Tiffany and I live in Ontario Canada. I dont have any allergies that anyone needs to worry about. I love old books and movies. I do like newer movies as well but i find that the originals are always better, and really, nothing beats a classic. I like lots of different styles depending on the day and my mood. I love punk clothing and dark colours but i also really enjoy kawaii styled fabrics and jewelry so im rather easy to please. I like most colours other than pastels.  I like to craft alot..Since im too sick to work it does a great job at keeping me entertained. I like working with polymer clay, making jewlery and sewing clothing the most lately but i also paint/draw and do other things more on the art side of crafting.

Fabric--I love lace/jersey knit/ribbed knit fabrics(am happy with lots of colours but would prefer black if possible). I like working with any kind of stretchy material really...i love stretch satins and spandex type fabrics. I'd love to try working with bamboo cotton like:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bamboo-Cotton-Jersey-Knit-Fabric-Eco-Friendly-Lava-/180702655552?pt=US_Fabric&hash=item2a12b7b440 I hear its amazing fabric to work with.  I also love plaid and houndstooth fabric...i like lots of different patterrns though Im picky about floral prints and dont really use them. I'd also appreciate brocade fabrics and suede. I'm interested in making a pair of knee high boots so I dont really have any use for scraps of suede...I'd also prefer it in either dark grey or black to match easily with clothing.

Stretch lace trims-i could use this in any colour. Lingerie elastic would also be great

Stretch bias like--http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-Yards-Dark-Pink-1-wide-Stretch-Binding-Bias-Cut-/400073263185?pt=Sewing_Trims&hash=item5d26398851  I would appreciate any colour

Separating zippers

grommit tape/d-ring tape/hook and eye tape- I would prefer black for these but white would be nice as well.

Liquid fabric dye-I need black the most but could use other colours as well (i would really like to try dye meant for cold water but i can also use the stuff meant for hot water)

Metal boning for corsets like http://www.ebay.com/itm/Steel-Spiral-Boning-Corset-Victorian-Renaissance-Bodice-Sewing-Supplies-Tudor-/130650378552?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6b5e9138

steampunk jewelry findings/keys. Could also use washers(not too big) and nuts (different sizes)

Filligree findings

Beads-any but pony or wooden beads would be great. I would also be happy with unwanted jewelry that i can take apart to reuse

wire-i would be happy with any thickness and colours since i have run out. I'd especially like some thicker wires

Coloured jump rings in any colour (i dont have any at all)

Necklace chain- i would appreciate any you have to give but i dont care for gold much. I'd love some coloured chain as well if possible but normal silver/brass/gunmetal types would be great

Flat back rhinestones in various colours. I could use a few different sizes, but i dont need the rather large ones


molds for resin- i would especially like ones for rings/bangles/necklace pendants

shrinky dink paper- Ive never tried them but ive seen alot of awesome things done with them and id like to give it a shot.

Any extra enamel paints meant for glass like: PEBEO VITREA (i hear its one of a few good brands of this paint)

Foil sheets used with polymer clay-any colours or patterns

any nintendo magazines like: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Magazine/NintendoPower?from=Main.NintendoPower i use images in them for pendants...Jewelry magazines (ive never really read any so it would be nice to see what theyre like)

I'm Shannin, I'm a student at UC Berkeley studying computer science. I live in a neighboring city with my boyfriend, who finds all my crafting very interesting (it's funny how amazed he is when I make things). He loves cats, but unfortunately I'm allergic to them. Sad I like geeky things and gamer things and all things lacy. I LOVE pandas. My favorite colors are orange and green. I like to wear neutral colors: black, brown, grays, cream, etc. I do not like pink or purple or pastel colors.

-- Fabric: cottons, bamboo, linen, lace. Any color of solids! I also love damask prints. Panda print fabric and banana print fabric would be cool, too. I'll take any fabric, fat quarters and decent sized scrap fabrics too.

Hello hello!  My name is Jessica, and I live in NYC with my boyfriend and three cats.  I have way too much stuff for living in an NYC apartment, so I am looking forward to joining this swap!  I have no allergies other than I can't wear pierced earrings anymore, but please know that anything from my home is guaranteed to have cat hair with it!  If you see anything from my destash site that you'd like please keep that in mind!

Pinterest supplies board is mostly repeats, but there are some other things on there that aren't in my list below: http://pinterest.com/yumjello01/supplies/

I've tried a lot of crafts, and right now what I'm sticking with is jewelry, embroidery, wood burning, resin and general craftiness.  I have a few supplies on my list for crafts I'd like to start trying as well.  Also some things on here for my sister's upcoming wedding!  Thanks in advance for choosing me! (also please take a look at my signature)

Jewelry Crafts:
silver findings such as jump rings and clasps (other finishes appreciated but I'm completely out of silver)
any finish, any length of chain
ring blanks
any size, shape, type of pendant trays/blanks
scrabble tiles
metal stamping blanks

Embroidery thread, and kind, color, length
cloth aida (any color)
embroidery needles
embroidery patterns
one of those vanishing ink or embroidery transfer pens
