Pin Cushion – A pincushion is a small, stuffed cushion, typically 3–5 cm across, which is used in sewing to store pins or needles with their heads protruding to take hold of them easily, collect them, and keep them organized. – Wikipedia
If you are a pin cushion user then I have a great year ahead for you. Many people I know use pins and it’s great to have them easy to access, that often means a collection of pins in each project bag.
What is the Pin Cushion Club?
The Pin Cushion Club is a year of small quick and easy pin cushion patterns emailed to you each month. There are 7 pieced designs and 5 embroidered designs.
These small projects are perfect to encourage your creativity, use up some scraps or make them in you signature colours and have them in each of your project containers.
Each pin cushion finishes at 3 inches, and can be quickly and easily completed in a short space of time. I am not a fast stitcher and I have been able to complete each of the embroidered designs in an easy night in front of the TV.
How do I join?
Purchase the Pin Cushion Cub from our shop, you’ll recieve a new pattern each month in your inbox on the 5th of the month.
Join the club at any time during the year and you will receive all previously emailed patterns and then be ready to receive the latest on the 5th on the next month.
I’m not an embroiderer?
All the designs are pretty quick to stitch and use back stitch which is a really easy stitch to do. There are 5 embroidered designs so we are encouraging you to do a bit of slow crafting, you never know, you might just find you enjoy it. I totally enjoyed the time I spent stitching, It’s been a while since I sat and stitched. We’re also going to share some how to vdeos on the enbroidery stitch.
I love using my clips?
You’ll be pleased to know that on the majority of the pin cushions there is an extra design feature to attach your clips on to. There are times when clips are cool, but also times when pins are perfect!
What skills do I need?
The pieced designs have small pieces in some cases, but are all straight line sewing. You’ll need basic sewing equipment that you probably have in your sewing room already. All requirements will be listed in the patterns that are sent to you each month.
12 Pin Cushions – really?
Hubby asked me about my little pin cushions and why there are 12. After I rolled me eyes at him, I reminded him of all the different projects I have on the go and how having some pins and clips handy in each project bag is a good thing. I also reminded him of Mum and her project bags, and then how useful they could be to others who might be the same as us. Is that you? If you are one of those super organised people who only have 1 or 2 projects on the go, then you will have quite a few gifts to give after a fun year of being creative. Or we may convince you to start some more projects to use your pin cushions. Win win really.
To recap, join us as we create a little pin cushion each month for 2020, the pattern will be emailed to you on the 5th of the month and we’ll be sharing a quick how-to video each month as well.
