Default July 2022 Pincushion Swap

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the July 2022 Pincushion Swap.

You must be signed up by the 31st July 2022 (this gives you almost 6 weeks to make a pincushion) as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd August 2022. You must have mailed by the 6th August 2022. This is a hard and fast deadline - no excuses. You must also please let me know via private message 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 normally a bi-monthly swap (6 in a year), although they have been little further apart because of the disruption to mail/Covid but we are starting to become more regular again. 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. You must let me know when you send and when you receive. This allows me to keep track of things and ensures that everybody receives a pincushion
11. The main rule is to have fun making and receiving some lovely creations.

Sign-ups will start now and close on the 31st July 2022 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. Also please let me know if you are willing to mail internationally (please consider this as it allows everyone to participate in the swap).

So come on, join in and have some fun!

Hugs

Caroline

I signed up and because this entire forum layout confuses me yet, I managed to sign up twice. Good grief!

My beautiful little paper pieced? House arrived in today's mail.A little button rooster is perched under the eves . There were other goodies too. Knitted face washer and mit for exfoliating? And hand crafted soap.Also a tea towel and a ladybird who flew over to my potted orchid as soon as I'd taken the photo. Thank you Nonnie. I love it all and the pin cushion is my favourite shape to use. I posted a photo on the May post and will do so here too.
