Rachel and I love the fun of creating tiny works of pincushion art almost as much as we love hearing from you after you finish one of our kits. It’s true that pincushions delight beginners and experienced stitchers alike!
Sometimes it’s a challenge for us to corral a big idea into a pincushion that will fit into our kit packaging.
What if we changed our pace for a bit?
A year and a half ago at Quilt Market, Martingale Publishing offered us a chance to write a book about pincushions. A flood of What If? questions followed.
What if we made pincushions that were tall?
What if we used unusual elements and one-of-a-kind collectibles for embellishing?
What if we gave in to our love of vintage?
What if we added tips for choosing materials and for creative display?
Martingale loved our What If? ideas. The result is Pincushion Appeal– a collection of eight pincushions presented in book form with beautiful photography, detailed material lists, complete instructions and expertly drawn diagrams.
Pincushion Appeal is available December 3, 2013 at independent quilt and needlework shops and through online sources.
We think you’ll have fun choosing materials and embellishments from your own stash. Coming soon to our website–embellishment packs plus material and findings kits for the projects shown in the book.
