Lanolin and Emery Pincushion

In my never ending quest to create the ultimate pincushion, I took a little survey to find out the most desirable qualities in a pincushion. The top 5 were:

1. Large - room for lots and lots of pins
2. Heavy - so it doesn't move or tip over
3. Not too deep - so needles don't get buried inside
4. Lots of sections - for sorting different types of pins
and needles
5. Stuffed with materials that will sharpen,clean, shine
and condition your pins.

These adorable dressform pincushions meet all of the requirements for a high functioning pincushion and they do it with style!

The dressform is stuffed tightly with lanolin rich wool that I processed myself to ensure a high lanolin content was retained. This will condition your pins and needles and help them to glide in and out of your fabric like butter! To condition your thread before hand sewing, just thread your needle and run it through a few times before tieing it off. No more need for sticky wax! Both front and back can be used to store loads and loads of pins and needles.

The tomato base is 3 inches round and is stuffed tightly with a full 1\/2 cup of emery sand to clean and sharpen your pins and needles. It has 6 sections for sorting. The considerable weight of the emery makes it very stable. This pincushion isn't going anyplace you don't want it to. It stands 4 inches tall not including the pretty pin.

As with all Love Laurie Products a bit of whimsey is a must. Each dressform cushie has a cute little pretty pin hand crafted of polymer clay to top it off. Each also comes with a sewing quote on a pin. This one says "If i stitch fast enough does it count as exercise?". If you would like to choose a different quote or want to make up your own, just let me know in the notes to seller. The list of available quotes is in the 3rd photo.

Every component has been either machine or hand stitched. There is never any glue used on my pincushions!
