Pin Cushion Swap

At our meeting last week we mentioned our upcoming pin cushion swap. We will be swapping fabric at our March meeting and will be returning the finished projects to our partners in April.

Just bring in a zip lock baggie with 4 to 5 pieces of coordinating fabric around 5 inches big, scraps will totally do. Also here is a link with 17 different tutorials to start looking through and maybe getting ideas. You get to choose the style based off of your partners preferences or surprise them. We just ask when making one for the wrist, keep in mind not all wrists are alike and to be ready to make it adjustable for wrists between 6-8.5"
