I'm sorry I've been lagging on this thread! My flu is killing me, and I just messed up a ligament in my knee...from slipping in the shower  :doh: But yes, JesB if you'd like to donate to RRR, I could just have it as though they were assigned to you. Good luck sewing! Time flies when you're concentrating

You can actually get a relatively inexpensive sewing machine from Walmart or Sears.  Check them out online.  The Brother sewing machines are pretty good, I have a couple.  Singer is another good brand with some basic machines at a decent price. 

I "might" be able to donate to Little Mischief, either directly, or to their fosters in my area.  Not a for sure, but I'll see what I can do.

Are you assigning people to rescues? Lol, you started this, so I guess you're in charge, Tyetsu.

I will let this go for maybe another week, and then i'll start assigning people to rescues. I might see if there are ppl who have requests, but yeah, that'll be in a week or two.

I can definitely donate to Little Mischief Rescue, I just picked up some fabric.

To those who don't have sewing machines, and would like to get a simple one, Walmart has a good, simple Brother sewing machine for $75.  I have one for my girls, and I really like it.

I'd like to help!  I only just recently started to make my own hammies courtesy of the rattributes link and I'm sure that won't be cranking them out with the speed and efficiency of some of the pros  :bow: out there, but I'd like to try!

I sent the OP an pm, but did not hear back. I'd like to nominate another rescue in need of hammocks/toys for their rats/ferrets - Critter Camp http://www.crittercamp.biz/

They have over 20 ferrets and many, many rats, and you can see (somewhat) the cages they're in.  They don't seem to have any hammocks at all for their rats, and I'm sure they would be greatly appreciated.  I know they're not rat specific, but they do get a large number in, and have had to turn quite a few away recently due to space and resources.

I have a big hammock, a little hammock and 2 corner hammocks allll done for RRR ...  I barely got those done before my machine called it quits ... i'm going to take it apart later and seee if I can clean it and get it working right again.  kate is gonna see if she can borrow her moms machine, and then, hopefully with mine fixed, we can bang out some stuff to donate in double time!

I am no professional but I can definitely make up some hammocks for rescues over the holidays. :)  I will have time before and after finals, but it won't be until Dec. 4th or so.

Topaz! I'm sorry, I did not get your PM! I have been having trouble with the campus wireless and accessing certain parts of the internet, but I will definitely add critter camp to the list! Thanks so much!

Lwade: Thank you! I'll add you to the list and no worries about experience! I'm sure whatever you offer will be great!

synalovator: Thank youuuu so much! I know what oyu mean about finals T_T But I have cover grades this semester as a freshman soooo taking advantage of that kekekeke!

I just wanted to mention that whatever rescue I donate to should be willing to accept "recycled hammocks". Aka made out of old shirts, bath robes, etc along with maybe some new fabric. This is a way for me to cut costs a ton and be able to make a good amount of hammocks because I can't afford to buy a bunch of fabric to donate  ;)

I have a custom order to work on tonight/tomorrow, along with liners for HVRR, but, what ever chunks of fabric I have left from my cuttings and makings, I'll use to make some more hammocks (or tubes or whatever) if they pieces are big enough, and add them to my slowly growing pile for donations.  I'll have a good amount ready and on it's way to be there for Christmassss!

Just to give everyone an idea on Critter Camp's hammock needs, here is a photo of one of the kinkajou's sleep sack



No, they're not in filth. It's just that worn.

OMG!  I love Kinks ... I've heard some horror stories, but I still think they're beautiful.

If anyone wants to donate fabric, I'll gladly make stuff for any rescue you choose.  I have one to donate to myself, but I'm going to see what I can get from the clearance bins at the 2 local Joanns to make this as easy on my empty pockets as possible.  LOL
