    April 2014 Pincushion & Needlecase Swap ~ sign up closes April 1st

    This is a secret swap and you will not necessarily be sending to the person who will send to you. You may sign up for two items: can be either 2 pincushions OR 2 needle cases OR 1 of each. Make sure you let me know what you want to swap when you sign up.
    International swappers, please join us.
    All skill levels welcomed!

    THEME: This month the theme with be Easter and/or pastels.

    CONSTRUCTION:

    1. The cushion/case does NOT have to be quilted or hand embroidered, although it can be. But it must be handmade - not purchased.
    2. Use cotton or wool felt for the pincushions and stuff with appropriate filling. Use cotton or felt for the needle case, and it should have an insert of wool, felt, or Warm and Natural (this is great for needle cases).
    3. Embellishments/appliqué/embroidery are welcome but not required. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL LINE IN THE INFORMATION SHEET REGARDING THE USE OF POLY BLENDS IN THE COTTON AND FELT. If you plan on using the cushion/case as a daily use item please mention this, as polyester will dull the points of pins and needles.
    4. The size and shape of the pincushion/needle case is up to the individual creating it, but should not be smaller than 3” x 3”.

    SIGN UP NOW:

    Sign-ups begin today and end on April 1st at 9:00pm EST. This is a firm closing time. Names will be assigned by PM beginning the morning of April 3rd and should be completed by end of the day.
    Please respond to this thread with a post if you are joining the swap. Then highlight and copy the information sheet onto a new PM, fill it in and PM it to me. Please put in the subject line what you want to swap. I will acknowledge receipt of your PM.

    MAILING DATE:

    The deadline for mailing is Wednesday April 16th. International swap mail date is April 10th.
    Participants in the March swap who did not fulfill their obligation by the time the April signup closes will not be able to participate in this swap.
    Please PM me with your tracking number when you ship. You are required to have a tracking number on your package but priority mail is not required. First class with a tracking number is acceptable.
    If for some reason you will not be able to fulfill your obligation, please PM me as soon as possible so that I can locate a swap angel. And speaking of swap angels, let me know if you would be willing to be an angel if needed. Thank you.
    PLEASE SEND ME A PM WHEN Y0U SHIP AND WHEN YOU RECEIVE. Remember to thank your partner, either by a post, or a PM for a personal thank you. It would be nice if you report a feedback score to your SP. Pictures are encouraged, but not required. We all love seeing what everyone is receiving. If you are unable to post a picture, please make sure that you mark that on your information sheet so that your partner can take a picture before shipping it. Please understand that this board has members with different skill levels and you will not necessarily be swapping with someone at the same level. Let's love the creation we are sent. We all started somewhere and the most important thing to remember, is that our partner made it with you in mind!

    EXTRAS:

    Please add card or note so the recipient knows you made it. It is not necessary to send other items such as needles, pins, etc., but you can if you would like. Just make sure the pin points will not poke out during shipping and stab the postal worker. Honest – this has happened – one of the swappers mentioned it.

    PARTICIPANT’S INFORMATION FORM:
    Screen Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    City, State, Zip:
    Are you using your pincushion/needlecase for everyday use:
    Is it ok to be made/stuffed with polyester:
    Favorite Colors:
    Favorite fabric line:
    Your least favorite color(s):
    Least favorite fabric line:
    Is there anything you like to collect:
    What are your hobbies other than quilting:
    Is there anything you do not want to receive:
    Do you have Allergies (smoke, cats, dogs etc):
    Do you have pets:
    Is it ok if your partner smokes:
    Do you smoke:
    Do you have a digital camera to post pictures on the thread:
    Can you mail international:
    E-mail address:
    Phone number:

    This form will be given to your secret swapper (minus the email address and phone number – this is for me should I need to contact you). Feel free to add more about yourself to the information sheet. The more you add, the better she/he will be able to get to know you. Plus, I will be using this info to match partners. If you have questions, please PM me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.


    REQUIRED: I am required to tell participants to send me a monthly PM to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project. I am required to insist that all participants send me verification of shipment, to include tracking information. Participants are required to ensure packages will not arrive “postage due.” Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipient’s government are the sole responsibility of the recipient. Absent legitimate and reported mitigating circumstances, participants who have not fulfilled their obligation to ship shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback. Please keep in touch with me and let me know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time. Swappers should treat each other as friends and focus on the fun. So … please be prepared to be flexible, patient and understanding if necessary and appropriate.

    SHOULD YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS PLEASE PM ME IMMEDIATELY! Thank you, and enjoy this swap.
    This swap has been approved by PatriceJ.

    I'm in for at least one pincushion. I'll let you know before the deadline if it's more than that. Babysitting all day and all this week has made me tired.

    We are up to five swappers now. I have noticed in some of the swaps they post a running tally of the people who have signed up. I think I will start doing that so there is less chance I will miss anyone. So here is the first version of the list:
    1. lynnie - pincushion
    2. klaws - pincushion
    3. nhnative - pincushion
    4. lawsonmugs - pincushion & needlecase

    I woke up this morning and looked outside and so much snow. They said we were going to get .8". I just went out to shovel at least 2 1/2". So they are wrong again. I only have to babysit until 11 today and then the other grandmother takes over for the rest of the week. I hope I can get something done. Have a great day

    Well I guess this is going to be an old fashioned Ohio winter. It has been a long time, but I can remember many winters with constant snow through March. And at least a few with occasional snow flurries into May. It just isn't as much fun now as it was as a child.

    Lynnie You are lucky that you didn't get any snow. It's 23 here right now and windy.

    Cherrio I just heard that this is the coldest winter in 102 years in Ohio. I used to laugh when the people here would complain about the winter. I'm not laughing this year

    Laurie I'm in for 2 pincushions for April, I'll PM you
    This is what I saw today in the Brecksville Reservation

    It's a coyote. This is the spot I see them all the time but this is the first one I've seen this winter. Since his coat is so dark I guess I can only see him when there is snow

    We are suppose to have many around here but I have yet to see one and I'm not sure I would know what it is if I did see one except if it was in a pack. Looks a lot like a dog to me. I do worry about it when we are working outside as we have a small survey business.

    cool coyote. we don't have any around here. we do have wild dogs that can be
    quite mean though. it's 32* and winds are whipping. there's sand and dirt flying by like the tornado in the Wizard of Oz.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What part of Pa are you in? I'm about 1 1/2 hours from Pittsburgh. I'm in a city that seems more rural to me and I haven't seen any coyotes near me. I had to drive 22 miles to see this one. And if you are walking on the paved trails they tell you that it is their habitat and to be careful of them. Isn't that great. Just what you want to see when you are walking.

    I live across from a cemetery, and we have more deer than anyone could ever want. they eat all the flowers
    and have a blast knowing no one will shoot them there. they are pretty.
    If I go to the beach about 15 min fromhere, they are all over. they have signs telling you not to feed them, but who reads those signs???? they are covered in ticks though. they run up to your car looking for food.
    but no coyotes here.

    ~~~~~~~~Welcome all new comers.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Welcome to our little corner of the board eyes! Please don't worry about your skill level, all we ask is that you do the best you can. I know my skills are not up to those of some of our swappers. I make something a little simpler so that I can make sure it is as neatly done as possible.

    I don't worry too much about the coyotes when I am hiking or camping, I am more concerned with the raccoons since they will undo tent zippers. And now the bears are making a comeback.

    Here is our list of swappers so far:
    1. lynnie - pincushion
    2. klaws - pincushion
    3. nhnative - two pincushions
    4. lawsonmugs - pincushion & needlecase
    5. cherrio - two pincushions
    6. eyes - pincushion & needlecase
