Date to send item by: 02/03/09

- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
Are you still using that sad, old tomato pincushion?  Or maybe a generic store-bought wannabe pincushion?  Perhaps yours is holey and in need of repairs. . . . Or maybe you just need another pincushion to add to your collection?  (And who doesn't??)  Then look no further!!  This is the swap for you!

We will be swapping one Medium sized Pincushion.  (Medium sized as in time = approximately 2 hours crafting.)  TWO small bottlecap pincushions may be subbed for one medium-sized pincushion.  Please discuss this with your partner!  This can be knit, sewn, crocheted, felted, whatever will work for pin cushions! They can be hand-sewn or machine sewn.  But no tomatoes! (Unless they are the ironic tomatoes we discussed in Round 9! Wink )  Since Pin Cushions are small, please be sure to make it your best work, and something you would want to receive! 

** If you wish to swap more than one pin cushion, please consult with your partner.
** No extras, please.... this is a quick, fun, stress-free swap!
** You must be able to post photos in the gallery.  If you cannot, then please let your partner know, so they can take a photo of their handiwork before they send out. 
** We ALL appreciate good communication, so if you have any questions or comments please PM me or your partner. 
**DCN's will be required.  If you are an international swapper, you MUST keep your shipping receipts.
**I check PMs and update feedback in the evenings, so please bear with me.

Be sure to post in this thread at least once a week to foster good communication and to let me know that you're still alive and kicking.  And crafting.

Send any communication to the organizer with the subject Pin Cushion Swap.

NOTE: please PM your organizer barbolot for any swap communications after partners are issued.

I am very guilty of the tomato pin cushion!  I have needed a new one for quite some time but haven't been inspired to make my own.  So much better to make one for someone else and swap!  Thanks for the inspiration, can't wait to get started!

I couldn't wait for this to start.  I was getting bored without doing a swap or two (or
more).

I have to do this one!  I am guilty of using the old tomato, only my tomato belonged to my great-grandmother.  I used to enjoy using it, but now it's really showing age and I'm afraid to keep using it.  It's time to put it in a display case and get a new pin cushion.  Sending my info in now!

I was planning to make a pin cushion for myself (need an extra on the cutting table) but this would be so much more fun!

Sending in my questionnaire now!

OK, that's just a sweet story, plus a darn good excuse. Wink  I agree, though -- time to put it on display, and get yourself a custom-made-just-for-you pincushion!

OH, NO!!!  I promise it's not planned that way!  I hope things will work out so you can join us this round.

It's good to see some familiar faces again!  This will be so much fun.... but we're filling up fast!  Invite your friends, but do it quick! Wink
