Age requirement?  Open to all ages over 18.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- 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!

This round will be a little bit different from our previous rounds.  This time, our pincushions will have a SPRING THEME!  What that means exactly will be up to you and your partner to decide. . . . Wink  You can check out our discussion thread for some interesting suggestions.

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 pincushions! They can be hand-sewn or machine sewn.  But no tomatoes! (Unless it is a garden of freshly planted tomato plants! Wink )  Since Pincushions 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 pincushion, 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've got kind of an "outside the box" idea floating in my head for this one.  I'll have to wait and see if my partner is an outside the box kind of person.

Just sent in my form - I'm excited to get started on this one!

Okey, dokey.  I'm in and it's my first swap so I am a little edgy.  I'm looking forward to getting a partner and making something she will like.  I've seen all the wonderful pin cushions in the previous swaps and am thrilled to be on the receiving end of such precious projects.

Life is short, but it is wide.
