|A couple of no-sew beauties! These pincushions were made by my friend Dawn, from a set of vintage egg-cups.
I can't think of anything more fun than a celebratory Spring Pincushion Swap, can you?
So, let's pounce on the moment and have one this Sunday at the shop!
I've set up a Pinterest board with tons of "Pinspiration" to get you going...
There are so many different ways to make a pincushion and the beauty of a pincushion is that they don't take very long to make at all.
The hardest part will be deciding which type of pincushion you'd like to make!
Here are the details:
The Pincushion Swap will be this coming Sunday afternoon, April 28th at 1:00 pm here at Alewives Fabrics.
You don't need to sign up to attend: just show up.
You need to make your pincushion yourself: the more creative the better (here's where you should sneak a peek at our Pincushion Love board on Pinterest to get your creative juices flowing!)
Wrap your pincushion so no one can see it: make it look like a fabulous little present that anyone would want to open.
The Swap will work like a Yankee Swap: we'll all draw numbers and swap and steal from each other until the last pincushion standing is gone.
Swapping and stealing are highly encouraged: that's part of the fun!
No matter what number you get, everyone goes home with a handmade pincushion, so everybody wins.
The Pincushion Swap will also serve as our spring SEAM meeting: you'll get to meet lots of people who enjoy sewing just as much as you do.
(Don't know about SEAM yet? Check out the official SEAM website here!)
So, I guess that's it... we hope to see you at the shop this Sunday afternoon.
(And please forgive me if I steal your pincushion from you!)
