    June 2014 Pincushion & Needlecase Swap ~ signup closes June 1st

    June 2014 Pincushion & Needlecase Swap ~ signup closes June 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. International swappers are welcome to join us, and can send a pincushion "unstuffed" to save on postage. All skill levels welcomed!

    THEME: This month the theme with be SUMMER or YELLOW.

    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 UPS:
    Sign-ups begin today and end on June 1st at 9:00pm EST. This is a firm closing time. Names will be assigned by PM beginning no later than the morning of June 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 of the PM what you want to swap. I will acknowledge receipt of your PM.

    MAILING DATE:
    The deadline for mailing is Monday June 16th. International swap mail date is June 12th.
    Participants in the May swap who did not fulfill their obligation by the time the June 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 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. 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:
    Any additional information:

    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.

    it's still early in the signup. Let's hope we have more players in this group.
    it's dreary here today, so i'll stay in and work on my hex quilt. I'll be working
    on this for the rest of my life. 3/4" is small. I must be crazy. i think if i ever
    finish it, it will be an heirloom.

    I'd like to join your pincushion party! Please put me down for one of each. I will send a pm. Just have a couple of questions - Are there any requirements for the dimensions of either pincushions or needlecases? Are crushed walnut shells ok for filler?

    Just re-read the original post and saw the size requirement.

    Hi welcome Kele. i just got my pincushion from SCRAPPER and it's stuffed with walnut shells
    and it's so nice and firm and pudgy and aqua. Maybe she can show a picture for all of us.

    It's great to see a new person on the swap. Tell us about yourself.

    Did anyone tell kele she has to get 25 more people to join...he he he (just kidding).
    It's beautiful here today about 65 and sunny. my type of day.

    I just received my May needlebook from Scrapper and want everyone to see it. I didn't know if everyone is still following the may swap. Thanks again Cary it's very pretty and a nice package.

    LOL lynnie I like your thinking, but 25 more swappers is kinda scary! I love all the regulars, but it is fun to get new "faces". Maybe I should challenge everyone to try to encourage one more person to join???

    Mine is already finished for this swap. I think July is red, white and blue. Is that right Laurie?
    Went to the eye doctor this morning. Even though I wear glasses, my eyes are healthy. I hate having my pupils dilated. It has taken this long for them to get back to normal....from 9:30 am until now.
    I asked a friend (Quilty-Louise) to join in this month but she is busy making aprons. She posted pictures on facebook of some aprons that she made and now friends and family want her to make one for them. She said maybe in July.
    I also have something I want to show off. I will post pictures later.

    Mary that is such a pretty needle case that Scrapper made for you, and pretty goodies too.

    I haven't started mine yet, because I like to wait to see who I get.

    I do already have the red, white, and blue fabric I need for July though.

    Everyone have a great day! It's pretty here today, and pretty much warm everyday now.

    Off to take that challenge, and invite someone to our swap.
