Holiday Party Pincushion Swap

This year, we're changing our gift exchange tradition! The Naughty Santa/White Elephant was fun, but does anyone remember how long that went on for last year?!? So, we're starting a new tradition: a Pincushion Swap!

Please bring your individually wrapped pincushion to our annual Holiday Party meeting on December 2nd from 3:30 to 5:30 at Trinity-St.Paul's (427 Bloor St W). Also, please bring a treat to share!

Our fantastic secretary, Christine, has put together
some guidelines for this first Pincushion Swap:

  • It will be a 1-for-1 swap. For each pincushion you make, you get to choose a pincushion to keep. For example, if someone brings 5 pincushions, they will take home 5 pincushions made my other people. If you bring 2, you take home 2.
  • Pincushions do not need to be holiday-themed. Use your scraps and your imagination!
  • Pincushions must be hand-made.
  • Each pincushion should be individually wrapped. Please include a note, card or tag to identify yourself as the maker (you can also include your Instagram handle if applicable)
  • Feel free to add an extra something! Candy, sewing notions, etc are optional and are not expected.
  • Share on Instagram! #tmqgpincusionswap
