-Dinky Dyes Threads! I just got my first and I love them!
-Even-weave, 32 count or higher! I'm experimenting now.
-Or unique fabric- I've been pretty straight-laced about just white Aida until recently.
-Anything stitched would be so nice!
-I love autumn colors.

Dislikes/Don't Need:
-No more DMC! I just finished the whole collection!
-No Aida please. My bin over-floweth!
-I'm not very interested in embroidery outside of cross stitch
-Not very interested in anything religious
-Please no pink!

I have been ruminating over this thread off and on lately and I need to get it done. Problem is I am fully stocked with fabric, threads and a pile of charts/kits to keep me going for the next 20 years.
Having said that I know I will love and enjoy whatever is sent to me.


A Laying Tool - for when stitching with blended threads.
Simple small designs for cards
Small designs of Owls
non stitchy thing - small stickers to put on the envelopes of my letters


Not much really. larger than 16 ct fabric

However whatever is sent will be most welcome.

Oooooh Stashmas! I was talking to my DH about it today! I had so much fun a few years ago, I can't wait to do it again!

And cats overall :)

Dislikes! :(

Gold plated needles

Flowers (they're pretty but I don't like stitching them)
Holiday themes (again, they're nice but not my taste)
Overly cutesy stuff (unless it has cats in it)

I'm not picky! In fact, I'll be happy with whatever you choose because it comes from the heart and that's what matters most! :wub:

I'd be excited to get anything! My first stashmas :dance:

Not preferred :neutral:
I'm a newer stitcher so complicated or big patterns would probably be too much for me right now, but I can always stash for later.

Would love :wub:
I'd love anything that you wish you'd had when you started stitching. Or something you wish you'd tried sooner.
I've been interested in blackwork lately
Colorful patterns, fabrics, or threads

Do I need stash. Well, no, I don't really. But then "need" is such an elastic concept...

snowflakes or patterns that look like them
#12 pearl cottons
hardanger patterns or ideas
subtly variegated threads

Don't need
anything twee
Disney (sorry!)
fabric (I have an entire drawer full of fabric...)
DMC or Anchor stranded cottons (you don't want to see my collection... unless you take some away, of course)

Actually, I'm always amazed and delighted with my Stashmas person's choices, so don't worry overly much!

I haven't a clue what to put here.

Pretty much anything interesting

I just can't stand printed canvas (where the pattern is on the canvas) It makes me angry, mainly because I find it distracting
