Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Details of swap:
Are you still using that sad, old tomato pincushion?  Do you need another pincushion?  (and who doesn't?)  Perhaps yours is holey and in need of repairs? Or lost somewhere where your ferret hid it?  Well then 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! 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 would like to do this one, but first I have to see how I'm coming along  with finishing up a couple of other swaps, before committing to this one.

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

One can never have too many pin cushions Smiley And I had so much fun last round.
