About Me

Hello! You can call me Rusty. I'm a thirty-something guy in eastern Canada who enjoys various textile-based crafts and spends an inordinate amount of time petting cats and playing video games. I'll be returning to a textiles college program in the fall and presently work in retail.

I struggle to engage with things that require me to write about myself, so apologies if my profile is a bit brief. I'm open to questions where needed for better swapping.

Favorite Crafts

Actually pretty good at: sewing & embroidery, felting, basic garment construction

Learning/dabbling in: knitting, drawing, paper making, weaving, various dye techniques, music production (that's a craft, right?), graphic design

Want to try: simple woodworking & stamp making

Other General Interests

aviation, biking, board games, cats, dance, documentaries, drinking tea, gaming, home decor, music, nail polish, stuffed animals (plushies), trains

Swap Preferences

I'm still clearly quite new to this, so I don't have much to draw on at the moment.

  • homemade/hand-drawn/self-printed postcards of good quality (i.e. decent cardstock, solidly assembled/decorated so nothing falls off in transit) are quite welcome!

  • I don't mind if postcards are naked or in envelopes; I will leave it to the sender's discretion or preference. Some swaps specify whether they should be one or the other, but if you've a reason to want to put it in an envelope in a "naked" swap, that won't bother me. I will send per swap guidelines unless a partner prefers otherwise.

Comment: Thank you so much! I really love the succulent stickers! 😊
Response: I'm glad you like them! I bought a whole pile of those because I also really liked them. I've kept some for me too!
Comment: Hello again! Thank you for the lovely package! I enjoyed everything :) I will have to take your recommendation. Did you do the weaving on the ATC by hand? so intricate and beautiful!
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed everything! Yes, I did weave those sections with a wee needle after sewing the warp threads into the paper.
Comment: Your awesome atc made it! Love it! Thank you!
Response: Yay!

Comment: Thanks for your list, your likes make you sound like an interesting person for sure! I have been looking at holotaco forever but it's expensive to ship it to the EU
