    November 2019 Pincushion Swap

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the November 2019 Pincushion Swap. Sorry for the late posting again but we were waiting for one pincushion from the last swap to arrive.

    You must be signed up by the 30th November 2019 as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd December 2019. You must have mailed by the 8th December 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 30th November 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

    I was going to sit this one out, but then I reviewed the last pincushion swap page and decided to join in again. I believe you have my info.

    Totally addicting; at least they cannot make us fat.

    Sat down today and finished mine. However, it is not a pin cushion. It is a needle cushion. I found the cutest pattern in an old McCalls quilting magazine. Just could not resist. Mailing out tomorrow.

    Hint... it has a tail!

    M-Fay that is hilarious!

    Two reasons. 1. My daughter is a biologist and works in an insectery -- yes raising bugs for research.
    2. Bug or Bugaroo is our golden doodle. So when he was little, I called him Doodle Bug. Then when he got in bed with us, he was a Bed Bug. When he gets in the trash, he is a Sh...t Bug. When I want him out of the kitchen, he has to Bug Out. Thus... Bugaroo just fit him perfectly!
