Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Buckwheat hulls have been a choice filler for pincushions since the 1800s, as the hulls allow air to circulate freely *and* they sharpen sewing needles and pins, according to the ladies at King's Landing Historical Village, who still use them daily while hand-sewing. Buckwheat is also resistant to dust mites.

These pincushions are machine-sewn by me, have a slightly "bean-bag" feel but hold pins well, and can be propped anywhere while you work.

Good for those who are environmentally sensitive due to their organic nature (the hulls I use come from the mill at the historical village in New Brunswick - which means no synthetic chemical pesticides or fertilizers).

Pincushions measure 4 1/2 " by 4 1/2 " and can be shipped within 3 business days. The last photo is a sample of several patterns available: you'll receive the first pincushion shown.

Thank you for visiting!
