Thanks to everyone who helped make this first blog swap of mine a success! All of the pincushions sent in were top quality and that made me very happy!

I have hosted many swaps on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum over the past 7 years (forum nickname Quiltaholic) and I want to take the plunge and host my first ever blog swap!
I would love to host a PINCUSHION SWAP!
Rules: You can make anywhere from 1 to 6 pincushions to swap and you will receive the same number of pincushions back in return. Please use good quality fabrics in your creations. You can use any design and any type fabrics (cottons, wools, fancy fabrics etc...) as you wish. You can piece them, cross stitch them, use applique, make wool pincushions..the choice is yours! Please be considerate in creating your pincushions and only send in pincushions that you would want to receive from each participant yourself. If you send in sloppy made pincushions, they will be returned back to you.
This is a centralized swap..... You will send your completed pincushions to me and I will swap them all out sending you back pincushions made by different ladies. This ensures that everyone receives their pincushions.
Sign up by replying to this post. You MUST have a way for me to contact you so I can give you my mailing address in order to be in the swap. Postage rules will be included in my reply email when I send you back my mailing address!
Also: After you sign up, please grab the Pincushion Swap button on my left sidebar and place it on your blog so others can know about the swap. I would love to see at least 20 participants for my first swap! Please help spread the word! :)
If you need to use Paypal to send me your return postage fees, that is absolutely fine with me.
International friends are welcome to play too!!
Everyone who completes the swap by sending in their pincushions will each get their name in a hat to have a chance to win this awesome Santa!!! He will come to the winner along with their new pincushions!!
Please help me have a successful first time blog swap by signing up and telling your friends to come and play too! If you send a friend to play, have them tell me you sent them and your name will go in the hat for Santa an extra time for each friend you send to play that finishes the swap! The more the merrier! :)
So!! Who wants to play?
