September 2020 Pincushion Swap
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the September 2020 Pincushion Swap. Whilst I know some of us are in isolation I know some people can manage to get to the Post Office or mail and they feel, and I agree, that having a little swap to look forward might make things seem a little more normal at the moment… so… here we are!

You must be signed up by the 30th September 2020 as partners names will be sent out between 1st and 2nd October 2020. You must have mailed by the 8th October 2020. 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:


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. You must let me know when you send and when you receive. This allows me to keep track of things and ensures that everybody receives a pincushion
11. The main rule is to have fun making and receiving some lovely creations.

Sign-ups will start now and close on the 30th September 2020 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. Also please let me know if you are willing to mail internationally (please consider this as it allows everyone to participate in the swap).

So come on, join in and have some fun!

Hi Guys,

Marion, Michelle, Carolyn and Connie... you are all in the swap along with Rebaquilts and myself so far... still plenty of time for sign ups!

Hugs to all.

Hi Guys,

So, you should all have your persons name now..... if you think you should have a name and I haven't sent you one, please contact me asap.

Now a little housekeeping............ Please remember to pop a note in with your pincushion as this is a secret swap and your person needs to know who sent to them also please please remember to let me know when you have mailed and received. Lastly, please thank the person who sent to you (it is just manners) and try to post a picture of your pincushion here!

So, let the fun begin!
