Oh So Sweet Pincushions!!!

Oh my Goodness!!! Just look at these gorgeous pin cushions! They are truly "Oh Sew Sweet"!!

They look like a field of flowers.

or delicious cupcakes

but they are actually a handy Sewing Companion with everything you need for your hand sewing - a pretty pincushion, a thread catcher on a sturdy wooden base that holds one or two reels of thread. 

The creation of the wonderful sewing companions is a joint family effort with Anne Harris Loren and Lynn using fabrics from decades past. Each pincushion is topped with a vintage button.  Mr Harris has made the wooden bases from recycled timber and Annes daughter Loren has done all the printing on the cards and bags in a vintage style that finishes them off perfectly.

Won't it be fun to choose you're favourite from all the different fun fabric combinations. They would great gifts for sewing friends, or pair them with some hexagon papers to entice new people to sewing. 

You'll be able to find these truly special Oh Sew Sweet Sewing Companions at the Springwood Community Quilt Show on the Bower Birds stall.  All the proceeds from the sale of these pincushions will be going to Father Chris O'Riley's "Youth off the Streets".

These are just one of the wonderful items you'll find for sale at the show. The next post will have a list of all the other traders that will be there for all your shopping needs, after all it's always nice to get a few souvenirs from a fun day out.
