    Pincushion Swap - September 2017

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the September 2017 Pincushion Swap. 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 5 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 September 2017 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 won't be able to play this month, we're leaving for Florida on the 1st, takes 3 days to drive it so by the time I unpack there is no way I can mail within 5 days. I'll check in and see your lovelies though, as soon as they re hook my internet service. Have fun ladies.

    Thank you m-fay, we will. Have to really start getting serious and remember who to call to shut off this and pack that.

    I'll wait until the middle of the week to be sure, but I think we are going to leave on Friday...maybe even Thursday so I would have time to mail. It's all done and I did pack it just in case. Cold here and has been the last few days, 40 and down to 30, has already froze and snowed twice. The fireplace has been running but the Florida Sunshine is calling...........
