Throughout time small gifts were often exchanged as a token of friendship. One might send a beloved friend an embroidered needle case, or create a pin cushion, replete with pins, for a new mother. It is in the spirit of creation and friendship that the Regency Society of Virginia invites you to our Pincushion Sew Along and Exchange via Zoom on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 8:00 p.m.
We shall be hand sewing a small cushion that can be easily finished in less than an hour (machine sewing is just fine). Once the basic front of the cushion is complete you may choose to embroider, spangle, embellish or just leave alone to highlight your fabric selections.
You will need: two 4 x 4 inch fabric scraps, a sheet of felt or a 6 x 6 inch piece of sturdy fabric, paper, pencil, scissors, thread, bees wax (optional), and a small embroidery hoop (optional).
For those whom wish to participate in the secret pin cushion exchange will be sent the address of their special friend. Please remember If you do wish to exchange your cushion you will need to be willing to share your address.
Instructions will be sent out via email prior to the event.
One does not need to be a member to participate, though you will need to register on our web site: varegency.org
If our first event proves a success we shall more sew along in the future: pin cases, housewives, needle cases, reticules, kerchiefs and more. We hope you will join us for our first event.
