    SEPTEMBER Pincushion & Needlecase Swap - signup closes August 31

    This is a secret swap and you will not necessarily be sending to the person who will send to you. You may sign up for two items: can be either 2 pincushions OR 2 needle cases OR 1 of each. International swappers are welcome to join us, and can send a pincushion "unstuffed" to save on postage. All skill levels welcomed!

    THEME: This month the theme with be
    PURPLE.

    CONSTRUCTION:

    1. The cushion/case does NOT have to be quilted or hand embroidered, although it can be. But it must be handmade - not purchased.
    2. Use cotton or wool felt for the pincushions and stuff with appropriate filling. Use cotton or felt for the needle case, and it should have an insert of wool, felt, or Warm and Natural (this is great for needle cases).
    3. Embellishments/appliqué/embroidery are welcome but not required. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL LINE IN THE INFORMATION SHEET REGARDING THE USE OF POLY BLENDS IN THE COTTON AND FELT. If you plan on using the cushion/case as a daily use item please mention this, as polyester will dull the points of pins and needles.
    4. The size and shape of the pincushion/needle case is up to the individual creating it, but should not be smaller than 3” x 3”.

    SIGN UPS:
    Sign-ups begin today and end on August 31st at 11:00pm EST. This is a firm closing time. Names will be assigned by PM beginning no later than the morning of September 2nd.
    Please respond to this thread with a post if you are joining the swap. Then highlight and copy the information sheet onto a new PM, fill it in and PM it to me. Please put in the subject line of the PM what you want to swap. I will acknowledge receipt of your PM.

    MAILING DATE:
    The deadline for mailing is Thursday September 18th. International swap mail date is Monday September 15th.
    Participants in the August swap who did not fulfill their obligation by the time the September signup closes will not be able to participate in this swap.
    You are required to PM me with your tracking number when you ship. You are required to have a tracking number on your package but priority mail is not required. First class with a tracking number is acceptable.
    If for some reason you will not be able to fulfill your obligation, please PM me as soon as possible so that I can locate a swap angel.
    YOU MUST SEND ME A PM WHEN YOU SHIP AND WHEN YOU RECEIVE. Remember to thank your partner, either by a post, or a PM for a personal thank you. It would be nice if you report a feedback score to your SP. Pictures are encouraged, but not required. We all love seeing what everyone is receiving. If you are unable to post a picture, please make sure that you mark that on your information sheet so that your partner can take a picture before shipping it. Please understand that this board has members with different skill levels and you will not necessarily be swapping with someone at the same level. Let's love the creation we are sent. We all started somewhere and the most important thing to remember, is that your partner made it with you in mind!

    EXTRAS:
    Please add a card or note with your name and board name so the recipient knows who made it. It is not necessary to send other items such as needles, pins, etc., but you may if you would like. Just make sure the pin points will not poke out during shipping and stab the postal worker. Honest – this has happened – one of the swappers mentioned it.

    PARTICIPANT’S INFORMATION FORM:

    Screen Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    City, State, Zip:
    Are you using your pincushion/needlecase for everyday use:
    Is it ok to be made/stuffed with polyester:
    Favorite Colors:
    Favorite fabric line:
    Your least favorite color(s):
    Least favorite fabric line:
    Is there anything you like to collect:
    What are your hobbies other than quilting:
    Is there anything you do not want to receive:
    Do you have Allergies (smoke, cats, dogs etc):
    Do you have pets:
    Is it ok if your partner smokes:
    Do you smoke:
    Any additional information:

    Do you have a digital camera to post pictures on the thread:
    Can you mail international:
    E-mail address:
    Phone number:

    This form will be given to your secret swapper (minus the email address and phone number – this is for me should I need to contact you). Feel free to add more about yourself to the information sheet. The more you add, the better she/he will be able to get to know you. Plus, I will be using this info to match partners. If you have questions, please PM me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.

    REQUIRED: I am required to tell participants to send me a monthly PM to verify that they are still active in this swap and are working on their promised project. I am required to insist that all participants send me verification of shipment, to include tracking information. Participants are required to ensure packages will not arrive “postage due.” Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipient’s government are the sole responsibility of the recipient. Absent legitimate and reported mitigating circumstances, participants who have not fulfilled their obligation to ship shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback. Please keep in touch with me and let me know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time. Swappers should treat each other as friends and focus on the fun. So … please be prepared to be flexible, patient and understanding if necessary and appropriate.

    SHOULD YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS PLEASE PM ME IMMEDIATELY! Thank you, and enjoy this swap.

    Lynnie must be slipping up. She is usually the first.
    I posted early for everyone but that just means you have a longer wait until you receive your names.

    I'm in too but not sure what I'll be making yet so I'll PM you when I decide. I wondered where everyone was. So I did do yard sales in the humid sun but there sure weren't a lot of them. This is what I did get.

    and you got onions and tomatoes too!
    one yard sale here and looks like all cloths.
    saw on the board somewhere, a woman buys cloths for the fabric
    and makes cute doll cloths from it for cheapo prices. great idea!.
    off to work on the Asian quilt again.

    I didn't get the veggies at a yard sale but at a serve yourself road stand. They had a sign up about someone stealing all their veggies so please be honest. I really needed the bookcase to use for fabric that I don't put in bins and that was $5. Good thing there weren't too many yard sales as it was so humid. And it's going to be hotter in the next few days and might get up to 90. I can't believe that next weekend is Labor Day Weekend. Where did the summer go? Everyone is complaining here that we had no summer. There is another girl missing in the National Park. When I went through there yesterday I saw all kinds of ambulances and police cars with a trailer with rubber boats on them. They were all near the river and I thought someone had a water accident but no they were looking for a girl that has been missing since Tuesday. Today when I went through there a helicopter was circling around. There have already been 2 girls that were killed and found in the National Park I hope this one will be found ok. That is why I don't date here. The men are all crazy.
