    Default February 2014 pincushion & needle case swap

    This is a secret Pincushion and Needle case Secret Swap and you will not 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 pincushion and 1 needle case. Make sure you let me know what you want to swap when you sign up with a PM.
    This swap will be a secret until you receive your package.
    International swappers, please join us.
    All skill levels welcomed!
    THEME:
    No theme this month. Not everyone likes red hearts.
    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/applique/embroidery are welcome but not required. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL LINE IN THE INFORMATION SHEET REGARDING THE USE OF POLYESTER BLENDS IN THE COTTON AND FELT. If you plan on using the cushion 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 begins today and end on February 1, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. PST. This is a firm closing time. Names will be assigned by PM beginning the morning of Feb. 4th and should be completed Feb. 5th 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. And don't forget to tell me how many spots you want, one or two, and what you want to swap. I will acknowledge receipt of your PM.
    MAILING DATE:
    The deadline for all pincushions/needle cases to be mailed to your partner(s) is Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. International swap mail date is Jan. 15.
    Participants in the January swap who did not fulfill their obligation by the time the Februry swap closes will not be able to participate in upcoming swaps.
    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 no later than Jan. 15, 2014 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 put a card or note in with your pin cushion/needle case 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.

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.

    I'm not too fussy about color or fabric line. I'll be happy with anything that is handmade. I just love all the pincushions and needlecases that everyone has made

    Please sign me up for 1 pincushion and 1 needlecase. Thanks again I still can't figure out how to send person A's info to Person B. There is nothing anywhere where it says to forward like on my regular email.

    nhnative - there is nothing like in regular mail. Go to the info area, put your cursor on the info you want to copy, then while holding mouse button down, drag to end of what you want to copy and let go. This area will appear in gray. Go to edit, at the very top of your AOL page, hit copy, click on my name and click send PM, when that opens, click on body of the new PM and right click and you can then paste into a new email.
