A few weeks back I noticed signs around my local area for a craft show to be held at the Tweed Heads Council Building on Fri 15th and Sat 16th July. The last time I went to this craft show was several years back and it was just wonderful and I spent a lot of money however I was quite disappointed this time and I was only there for about an hour at the max on Saturday morning. I did however manage to spend a little money, these are my purchases which I am very happy with I might add. I have some lovely patterns for ribbon embroidery and other embroidery I have wanted to use to make these type of pin cushions BUT I will not put pins in them, I want them for "show" only. I purchased two different types, I would have like larger sizes of the ones with the feet however they sold out of the larger sizes on Friday and the couple selling them come from Toowoomba. I took one of their business cards and the lovely gentleman who makes all the wooden craft items said he would make them to any measurement I wanted, uuummm...... I shall have to look into this further.



  1. How Fabulous. Can't wait to see what you stitch.

  2. You Know I went about 5 years ago to that craft show ......sorry that you didnt like it as much.....
    sometimes that is what happens ......I live at Broadbeach and work at Beenleigh I know what the traveling is like....

  3. Glad you got something you liked. I am looking forward to seeing what you create with them.

  4. Love the pincushion bases! Can't wait to see what you make with them. Were they expensive?? I think they would make very special presents!! I too am interested....
