    November 2018 Pincushion Swap

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the November 2018 Pincushion Swap. You must be signed up by the 30th November 2018 as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd December 2018. You must have mailed by the 7th December 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 30th November 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

    This is such a fun swap! I am still on the fence as I am not sure about adding it to my schedule. I might just try and make one and then sign up.

    Just got my pincushion from the Oct. Swap. This was fun, so I'd love to do the Nov. one. Am wondering if I am supposed to take a picture and post it somewhere to say thank you and show it off.

    Hi Sandy,

    Yes please, if you could take a picture and post it in the September thread, that would be great.

    Hugs

    Hi Pamela,

    I have you on the list but could you send me your details, address, email and whether you are willing to mail internationally.

    I'd better check if I let Caroline know I'm ready to post pin cushion and table runner.

    Hi Guys,

    Last few hours to sign up. I will close the sign up at 9.00am UK time tomorrow morning... that means it will have reached midnight throughout the USA (just). I will get your partners names out tomorrow.

    We have quite a few signed up - listed below. If I have missed you please let me know asap.
