Default February Pincushion & Needlecase Swap - Sign-up ends January 31, 2015

This is a secret swap and you will not necessarily be sending to the person who will send to you. This month will be a little different. We will be making a pincushion OR needlecase OR a set (1 of each) for 1 name. Please specify in your PM what you would like to swap. All skill levels welcome!

THEME: This month the theme with be
Valentines or Red, Pink & White.

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. 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 UPS:
Sign-ups begin today and end on January 31st at 11:00 pm EST. This is a firm closing time. Names will be assigned by PM beginning no later than the morning of February 2nd. 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 of the PM what you want to swap. I will acknowledge receipt of your PM.

MAILING DATE:
The deadline for mailing is
Tuesday, February 17th. Participants in the January swap who did not fulfill their obligation by the time the February signup closes will not be able to participate in this swap. You are required to 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.

YOU MUST SEND ME A PM WHEN YOU 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 your partner made it with you in mind!

EXTRAS:
Please add a card or note with your name and board name so the recipient knows who made it. It is not necessary to send other items such as needles, pins, etc., but you may if you would like. Just make sure the pin points will not poke out during shipping and stab the postal worker.

Karen, if you have fabric that is Valentine's Day specific does it HAVE to be in Red, Pink or White? The fabric I have in mind has those colors, too, but is not ONLY those colors.

I am in for a set. I'll send my info once the dishes are done! LOL

The Valentine's Day fabric doesn't have to be red, pink or white. That is for someone who doesn't have valentine fabric or would rather not make something with valentine fabric. I'm leaving it open for everyone.
