Pin Cushion Swap!

Modern Quilt Guild Pincushion Swap  
We all need them - why not get a unique pincushion from one of our fellow guilds?  The Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild is sponsoring a pincushion swap.  Here's how it works:  Make a Pin Cushion.  We'll collect them and send them off to Kansas City.  In return you'll get a new handmade Pin Cushion to use! The Pin Cushions will be returned to swappers at the December meeting, or other arrangements can be made.   If you're going to QuiltCon in Austin next February, a swap will be held there. 

Here are the guidelines:

·         Sign up by e-mailing
·         Create a Pin Cushion - any shape, any size
·         Use the filling of your choice, but make sure the contents are on the tag
·         Use a Modern Aesthetic
·         Don't use anything breakable
·         Pin a tag to the Pin Cushion with the following information:
o   Name
o   E-mail
o   Blog
o   Guild
o   Filling contents
o   Going to QuiltCon? Y/N

Return Pin Cushions at the next Indy Modern Guild meeting on October 27, or make arrangements to hand it off to an executive committee member (Katie Jones, Rachael Heger, Tisha Nagel, Holly King, or Lisa Parker) no later than November 10.

So far, eight guilds are participating:

Kansas City
Bay Area
Northern Virginia

Questions?  E-mail  
This is a really fun way to connect with the other guilds!  Have fun with it!
