I'm a Canadian ex-pat living in Sweden since 2002. I teach grade 2 at the local international school and I share my life with my lazy but adorable cat, Oskar.
I typically partake in swaps that involve fabric and sewing notions or scrapbooking and papercraft supplies but am game for others as they come.
I am happy to ship internationally. If you're shipping packages to me, I would greatly appreciate if you indicate 'gift' on the customs label so as to avoid unnecessary tariff charges.
I enjoy sewing and quilting both for myself and as gifts for friends and family. I typically sew a variety of table runners and toppers, placemats, quilts, children's toys, baby supplies, bags and household/kitchen dÃ©cor items.

Ribbons (especially grosgrain), rickrack, closures, cotton or metallic thread, embroidery floss, Olfa rotary blades (regular or pinking, size 45mm), buttons. I love jelly rolls, charm packs and layer cakes and would be happy to inherit your leftover strips/squares.

Please do not send anything that contains melon or has touched a cut-up/open melon.
I am very sensitive to tobaco smoke smells; it makes me ill, gives me headaches and I simply cannot tolerate it in my home or on products. Please ensure anything you send, especially fabric, is smoke-free.
