No crafting this time, just an attempt to get in on international swapping action, check it out:
Gimme Your Stuff
I can swap:
American magazines (mostly smaller and unusual titles like Bust, Utne, music titles), tell me what you like and I may be able to get it
Pacific Northwest regional stuff? Native American themed items? Space Needle figurines? Smoked Salmon?
Or something real American like trucker caps? Pork rinds?
Chalkboard cloth? (I am really excited about finding this) imagine drawing with chalk on a pocket that you sew onto your dress, or making a chalboard tablecloth or placemats, the possibilities are endless.
What I like..
Japanese cotton print fabrics. Some of my favorites: Etsuko Balance, Cosmo FairyTale, linen with hedgehogs, Time Capsule (Yumiko Tanaka) Friends. Striped or patterned bias tape
Japanese craft magazines (embroidery, crochet, sewing stuffed animals and kid's clothes)
Dutch wooden shoes for kids
Old East German wooden figurines
French wooden toys, linens, Tintin stuff
