    Louise,

    I do hope that you can join us, but I do understand if you can't. Please take care of yourself and enjoy the time that you have with your mom. Hugs,

    Hi,

    I just sent you a PM for 1 pincushion and 1 needle case.

    I have a cat so if someone has allergies I hope they won't be hurt by this.

    Hi all!

    Sorry I was missing last night. Thought that we would have free internet at the hotel. No, it was 9.95 for an all day pass. I was not going to pay. Decided I could wait until today.

    We have 10 needlecases and 19 pincushions signed up to swap so far. There are still a few days. We do need international swappers. Hope you can join in our fun!!
