    May 2019 Pincushion Swap

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the May 2019 Pincushion Swap. You must be signed up by the 31st May 2019 as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd June 2019. You must have mailed by the 8th June 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 May 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

    Dianne,

    If you check out the past swaps, they should give you an idea of what to expect.

    Hi Dianne,

    You need to PM me your information - name, address, email, if you can mail internationally and if you are allergic to nuts.... and that is it, you will be signed up!

    Hugs

    What does everyone else use to weight down their pincushions? rule out sand and seeds (customs will seize them) I've made mine but it needs weight.

    Will they seize crushed walnut shells? That’s what I use. I’ve also received one weighed down with pennies in the bottom.

    Walnut hulls but if sand is not OK I am pretty sure that doesn't work either.

    I sometimes use large washers. The yo-yo on the bottom of my owl pincushions contains a couple of 1 1/2" washers that I purchase at Lowe's; however, they should be available at any larger hardware store.

    Thanks everyone. Yes I've used crushed walnut shells before but I can only get them on line.I'll order more but they wont get here in time. I bought washers today to try them and someone suggested ball bearings as well....I'll see how I go.
