    July 2019 Pincushion Swap

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the July 2019 Pincushion Swap. So sorry to have posted so late but as some of you will know I have had my daughter visiting and the other taking her final exams etc. still, better late than never. You must be signed up by the 31st July 2019 as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd August 2019. You must have mailed by the 8th August 2019. This is a hard and fast deadline - no excuses. You must also please let me know when you mail and when you receive... this is so I can make sure that everybody receives a pincushion.

    This is a personal choice swap so you can make any type of pincushion that you would like to.

    Before signing up, please read the rules below:

    Rules

    As with all swaps there must be rules so here are ours!

    1. This is a secret swap.
    2. This is not a partnered swap so you may not receive from the person you send to.
    3. Everybody on the board is welcome to take part.
    4. This will be a bi-monthly swap (6 in a year) – you only take part in the months that you sign up for.
    5. If you commit to taking part you must send out a pincushion… no excuses!
    6. If you encounter a problem or issue, you must let me know immediately; there is nothing that cannot be sorted and re-organised if you communicate.
    7. You are only committed to send a pincushion…. You may, if you wish send other items, but please do not expect to receive anything more than a pincushion.
    8. Be kind to the person you receive from… we are all at different levels of experience on this board and we need to encourage each other… so if you receive an item from a less experienced stitcher - just appreciate the time and love that has been put into making it.
    9. You must mail your item by the deadline above... no excuses.
    10. The main rule is to have fun making and receiving some lovely creations.

    Sign-ups will start now and close on the 31st July 2019 for this round.

    When signing up, please let me know if you have a nut allergy as some people fill their pincushions with walnut shells.

    So come on, join in and have some fun!

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Welcome Nonnie4. This swap is lots of fun. There are so many pincushion ideas/patterns available, it is sometimes difficult to choose one to swap. Have fun with it.

    Hi Ladies,

    As usual..... because there are so many time zones in the USA I will close the sign ups at 9.00am UK time on the 1st August, which should allow for it to me midnight everywhere in the USA.

    So guys, come on, there is still time to sign up!

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Hi Everyone,

    Names have been sent out. If you were expecting to get a name and haven't, please contact me asap.... I do make mistakes (although I would't admit that to DH - LOL LOL LOL).

    Please don't forget to let me know when you send and receive.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    received pin cushion from michelle-quilts. Love it thank you. Let me see if I can get Michelle to post a pic. I have mailed my pc to my partner, a very long long journey from Florida. I took a picture of it, I hope it arrives soon.

    I received an incredibly awesome top hat pincushion with Steampunk-type gears,etc. attached. There were also two very stylish black feathers attached. There was also a lovely cloth pouch of fragrant lavender enclosed. Thanks Caroline for an incredible package. I am always anxious to see Caroline's creations. Thank you Caroline!
