Join a pin cushion swap

Pin cushions – so small, so collectable, so taking over our sewing boxes! Just for fun, the House of Pinheiro and Sew Far Sew Good are launching a pin cushion swap. A bit of a destash is always good, and everyone likes a surprise in the post, so a swap is a great way to get a new pin cushion to add to your collection…

Anyone can take part, you just need to let the Chief Swappers know before the 21st May. They will pair you up with a mystery swapper, with whom you will exchange your beautifully crafted pin cushion. When you apply, please feel free to include a little bit of information about yourself, including a link to your blog (if you have one). This way your swap buddy can tailor a pin cushion to suit you!

The only rules of the pin cushion swap are to use items from your stash, and that your pin cushion is ready and posted to your swap buddy by June 5th.

To get you started, why not dig out issues 10 and issue 11 of Mollie Makes where we featured how to make felt cacti pin cushions and felt pancakes.

To join the pin cushion swap, all you need to do is email Rachel at House of Pinheiro or Charlotte at Sew Far Sew Good. And, to add to the excitement, House of Pinheiro and Sew Far Sew Good will be running a series of giveaways to keep you entertained along the way. Can’t wait to start, lots of our pins are looking for a new place to live.
