STICK PINS AND PIN CUSHION SWAP - Closed - Due Date May 30th

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:45 pm
WE ARE NOW FULLY SET UP WITH 10 MEMBERS !!   THANK YOU LADIES !!   -  Okay, here we go !!  

PLEASE start on your pins early and finish them on time...  Pin Cushions can be made or purchased...  but make it a pretty one please !!



THis time we will allow the creation of Stick Pins that are 3"  and up to 6" Long (Hat Pins)    (please do not use 2" corsage pins)  I carry 3" Pins in my Etsy shop and you have a choice of Pearl Topped ones, or Crystal Topped ones... I also carry Silver-toned Hat Pins and GOld TOned Hat Pins  ( in packs of 12) ....  You can also buy these at Joann's and MIchaels.  I did not see any at Hobby Lobby.  The 3 Inch Pins are in the FLORAL DEPT... not in paper crafting sections.

Please be sure that your pins are inserted safely into a pin cushion, or into a holder that will prevent someone from pricking their fingers when they open the package.

PIN CUSHION CAN BE MADE OR PURCHASED !!   I will make it easy for you on this one !!   Very Happy  cheers  bounce  bounce  bounce

This will be a group swap and I hope to see a lot of different designs of stickpins...  

Each member will create 5 identical (or close to it ) pins and 1 pin cushion .  Then, I will return 5 different pins to you and swap out your pin cushion with one that someone else made.

I will not be posting a lot of different requirements for the pins and cushions.  I want to see what you will create all on your own !   I am asking that you use NICE QUALITY BEADS and not a bunch of plastic cheapo ones... Make them something special .



You will mail your pins and pincushion to me along with return postage .  I would think it would be between $3.00 and $4.00 at the most to send them in a small box or padded envelope.  If your pin cushion is HEAVY, please add more postage.   THANK YOU !!

RESERVED FOR HOSTESS

I decided we do not need groups of 5. Just please make 5 pins and 1 pin cushion and send to me. THen I will divide up the pins so that you each will receive 5 different pins in return and one pincushion ... Thanks !! Please remember to add your return postage for me . You should not have to send these by Priority Mail if you send them in a timely manner...as they should not be heavy. Use First Class Parcel rates for anything under 16 ounces. If you want to do Priority Mail , please be sure to send me enough postage money. Even a small box runs about $7.00 now. Thank you !

I should be able to manage this swap. Go ahead and sign me up. If I need to bail out because of unforeseen circumstances I hope you all understand. If this circumstance does happen, I will post on here that I do need to bail out. However, right at this point all is going pretty well.

Bless my daughter's heart. Yesterday, she came into my craft room with a sweet smile on her face. These are her exact words, "mom. I have some money in my purse just calling out to go shopping. Why don't you take it and get out of the house for a while." I asked her is she was sure and she said "yes." Wow, I did not hesitate very long to take her up on that offer. Of course, my first stop was JoAnns to check out the bead selection. Found a beautiful set of a lovely shade of pink ones to use on the stick pins. Also could not resist purchasing a few other goodies. Like I really needed them. Next stop was Michaels where I found all of there 12 X 12 pads of cardstock on sale half price. Just could not resist purchasing one new one. It is so hard to find small prints used on the pages of the 12 X 12s, but I found one. Petite Florals by Recollections. Usually, the pages are geared more towards scrapbook pages. OK, I need to quit rambling and get back on the theme of this forum. I have an idea I want to try for the pin cushion. Hope to dabble with the idea later today.

I need to go and see what beads I have . Haven't even looked at them since we moved last summer. The hardest part will be the pin cushion.

I can do both groups, if you want to split into 2 groups of 5. If no one else joins. Let me know.

Babetta, glad you are back from your break from crafting! If you need any beads, just let me know. I have tons of beads in all colors. My sister and I went bead crazy one day when we were out shopping. I think we each bought over $100.00 of beads and then we split them in half so each of us had some of the other's lovely beads.
