Craft Wish list!


(Donna) #1

What is the one craft item you’d buy if you won the lottery? :slight_smile: Post a link if you have one.
I need (honestly I NEED it :smile:) this Janome Memory Craft 15000 v2 embroidery machine, but at Over £6000 I’d need a lottery win to afford it :cry:

It is a thing of beauty :smile:

That looks like a fabulous gadget Donna.

I’m just craving some space at the moment for my crafting stuff. An area I can call my own and make messy with wild abandon.

So for me it would be a lovely extension kitted out with a huge workstation and loads of storage ideas. I would also fill shelves full of beautiful little packets of polymer clay …oh it would be lovely :blush:

My own studio would be wonderful and of course a hot press printing press so I can produce my coasters and cups with my wildlife and fora photo’s on.


(Roz) #4

Oh - every type and colour of wool and fleece, reams of silk fabric, a decent sewing machine and time…

…not to mention a felt rolling machine to save my arms (several thousand £ :frowning: )


(Eileens Craft Studio) #5

oh yes and my own kiln so I can start making enamel jewellery once again. I used to have access to one once a year but of late I’ve not had time or the money.

I’d love a craft room all to myself but if it wasn’t a big enough win to move to a bigger house/build an extension then one of these electronic cutting machines would be nice

I’ve never done the lottery before today! I’ve been meaning to for ages and just signed up online. I realise there’s really no chance of me ever making any money any other way! I don’t have anything in mind, but I would so love to help my daughters out- it’s so hard to make your way in life these days…But my own pottery studio would be nice!


(Kim Blythe) #8

I must confess I received my much wanted new embroidery machine for my Birthday…

but if I won the lottery I might also add one of these to my sewing room…

plus a bigger sewing room!!!

All I have ever wanted was a wooden yard rule!
I had a yellow plastic one at art college and in one move the packers curled it up in a circle, taped it together, and ever since it has been more of a long banana, defying all EU regulations, rather than of any use measuring anything flat.
But that was until I saw this shop item


It is in my favourites, which I have shown to my husband and daughter, but I would have to win the lottery 1st to pay someone to do it for me as I could never make it so beautifully as Lorna Bateman has, truely exquisite.

A set of apple computers not exactly craft but would love a pair of large computer screens. New purpose built studios, fully fitted with new equipment oh and a housekeeper and a gardener would be lovely.


(Eileens Craft Studio) #11

I would love a new gardener as I’ve lost mine they moved away to Sommerset :frowning:


(Sasha Garrett) #12

I’d like most of the contents of the Mineral Galleries and all of the contents of the Vault at the Natural History Musuem in London please. If I can’t have all of the contents then there is a stunning piece of beautifully patterned polished malachite and a display of all the different colours of diamonds that would be top of the wish list and I go and drool over them whenever I’m in the area.

(Sasha Garrett) #13

The other thing on my craft wish list is a trip to
http://www.craterofdiamondsstatepark.com/
bit strange but I’ve always wanted a rough diamond and this seems like a fun way to find one and you can then soak away the hours of digging in the local hot springs.

(Rhiannon Rose) #14

I think that I’d like to use the money to do a quite expensive City and Guilds course on creating jewellery!


(tmsjewellery) #15

I’d go for a rolling mill like the one in the link. It would let me press nature into silver and make some really beautiful pieces. At £500, I don’t need to win the lottery, but I would need to get a few more sales :smile:
