    March 2018 Pincushion Swap

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the March 2018 Pincushion Swap. You must be signed up by the 31st March 2018 as partners names will go out on the 1st April 2018 and you must have mailed by the 5th April 2018. This is a hard and fast deadline - no excuses.

    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 (so 6 in a year)– but you only take part in the months that you
    sign up to.
    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 with 4 days of receiving your person’s name.
    10. The main rule is to have fun making and receiving some lovely creations.

    Sign-ups will start now and close on the 31st January 2018 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

    Hi Linda,

    The pincushion you received was sent by Irene C...... not June - LOL. She was a little concerned that she had sent to the wrong person and that you had received from a different person also. I have assured her that she sent to the correct person.

    Hugs

    Thank you Caroline for the clarification.

    I received my lovely pin cushion from M. Newman in Australia today. It's a little cottage type house, so so cute. It's all done in hand embroidery, the little door, windows, a cat sitting among little flowers, vines along the windows, roof with eyelet trim even the cutest little clothesline with little quilts on it.....lol....think they are quilts. A lovely zippered pouch with some candy. Thank you, thank you, everything is lovely and appreciated. I just love your hand work, lovely.
