Anyone up for a pincushion swap or another round of Hoopla?Huh

I am trying to collect pincushions in a beach/ocean theme.

and I'd love to do a Hoopla round with a monogram/initial............


anyone interested?

I would be willing to host the pincushion swap (I've never done one before but I can learn!), but it would def have to be in January. 
Not sure if there's a hoopla swap discussion going on, I couldn't find one.

thanks!!!

Why not both?  Cheesy Make a hoopla AND a pincushion, After all, you can really do one without the other, right? Hee hee....I'd be up for this. I need more hoopla on my wall. I just put the three I have up in my new house @^^@

Good. I cross-stitch too kayrun  Cheesy I'm too intimidated by the precision of embroidery and all the fancy stitches. Plus I got the most epic hoop from Averia in a hoopla round that will put anything I'd ever attempt to do to shame Tongue But I'd definitely be in for this! I really need more hoops on my wall, embroidery OR cross-stitch. Even fabric quilt hooplas are fun ^^

Or wool felt hooplas!  I've done several and received several. Pretty much anything hoopla Smiley
I know limeriot has organized and troublet,  don't want to step on toes. Anyone know if anyone else is discussing a hoopla round?  I'd wait til the first of jan and I'm thinking of a small to med size hoop. Maybe 4-6". That's not too intimidating or time consuming.

This sounds interesting & I haven't done a hoopla yet but I have made a pincushion & I love both of them. I use several so I have some upstairs & some downstairs so I don't have to worry that I forgot it & have to run up or downstairs to get it in the middle of doing something.
Hooplas I have been wanting to make one & receive one for awhile. Sounds like a lot of fun.

You'll become addicted shara, I swear!  Cheesy It's like money---the more you have, the more you want to add to it! Hee hee. Hoopla are really fun and can be as intricate or simple as you like. Also a bonus, it doesn't HAVE to be embroidery. I do cross-stitch hoopla or Mini quilt hooplas.

I'd be up for this... preferrably a pin-cushion AND hoopla swap. I've never really been into the hoopla's, but I now have one I really really want to make. Though I could always just surprise a random swap partner with it loll

I have been obsessively buying small hoops, so a multi-swap or a OTT hoopla swap would be good for me  Grin

I would love to do a hoopla swap if the timing is right.  But, I wouldnt be interested in the pin cushion part though.

I don't have a pincushion. I have a habit of sticking them in my lounge or my chair (oops) My partner is starting to get angry because of the holes. I just did not know how to make one.

I would love to make a hoopla.. I do not know how to make one. Lol, I always call Hoopla's hoopoola's I do not know why... I am a weird child

so far, we've had more interest in Hooplas than pincushions.....
I'm thinking sign ups for a hoop swap in mid january.............

and BamBam I just went to your blog...........Love it!  I subscribed by email.  I love reading others blogs and you are the same age as my daughter, so I enjoy the 'younger' prospective on things, :-)

Keep on crafting and learning.  Love the mustache pillow!!!

Howdy Folks

So I didn't see this thread before, but Homerof2 was gracious enough to point it out! I have started a discussion on the next Hoopla Round and for those who were interested in doing strictly a hoopla it might be a good idea to check it out! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418732.0

I think the pincushion swap sounds awesome and I hope it happens because I wanna see the gallery!
 I have too many shirts that have gone through the wash covered in pins... oy.. Anyways! My problem with most of my pincushions is they look too much like dog toys and inevitably end up covering my floor with sawdust or fluffy stuffing snow. ooo that rascally dog o mine...

Thank you Mezcraft for the Hoopla Link.  I am heading over there now................
I'm going to hold off on the pincushion swap until at least mid Feb since I really wanna do another hoopla, I'm doing the scarf swap and I'm doing the ATC swap  Grin Grin Grin

I'll start another thread later on for a pincushion swap to see what kind of interest it generates.

Awww. Booooo on the no pin cushions!  Wink My bean filled Chicken from ten years ago is looking tired and faded Cheesy
    Hey Robin, maybe you should do like an "embroidery kit" swap after the hoopla swap instead? Send a medium hoopla, a pincushion (bought or made), a needle book and some supplies? We could maybe get more crafters in who are on the fence about starting embroidery that way too Wink

orrrr...maybe in a month or so I can just post that as a separate swap O.O-?

IsikkahJai, I like the embroidery kit swap idea.  I'll have to think on that one for sure!
and BamBam91, a needle book is a small fabric "book" that you use to hold your pins and needles.  It's easier to put in a tote bag to take your stitching with you on the go.

Here's a couple of examples:  http://pinterest.com/pin/199354720974806303/
http://pinterest.com/pin/199354720974803177/

I made one out of a passport book (faux leather) and I use mine ALL THE TIME!!!
I bought one from a craft store and gave to my DD when she learned how to embroider and she uses hers alot too.

I actually use it more than pincushions........I just collect pincushions  Cheesy

BAAHAHHA!! Bambam, you crack me up  Cheesy My mom used to put her needles in the arm of our love seat too. Until my step brother brought his hand down on one and it went THROUGH his hand  Shocked Undecided She learned real quick not to do that anymore Tongue
