Announcement   Hello Friends! The holidays are upon us! How exciting! If you are thinking about giving pin toppers as gifts now is the time to put your orders in!

I SHIP INTERNATIONALLY! JUST CONVO ME FOR DETAILS! If you need a shorter lead time just let me know!

FEBRUARY 2019 MARKS MY ETSY SHOP'S 11 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! I'm busy sculpting and sewing little pincushions these days, so if you would like me to create something special for you or a loved one convo me : )

Stock in my shop may appear small but that's not really the case! If you are a returning customer and don't see something listed just convo me : ) There are just way too many creations to keep listed all the time lol.

My creations can be made into lots of different things like:

hat pins
additions to terrariums
knitting stitch markers
knitting needle toppers
buttons
earrings
brooches
pendants
cell phone charms
cake testers
dollhouse minis

Please note I am in the process of phasing out a lot of my cardstock I attach my pins to. I am simplifying them : )

NEWS: I didn't want to confuse any of you with my shop name change and my real name change. My shop used to be called GigiMinor but I've changed it to PinksAndNeedles. The reason being I am currently going through a divorce and figured I should change my married name of Minor back to my maiden name Kight.
My ex-husband called me "Gigi" so I guess it's time to go back to my real name which is Annie. Thanks everyone!
PS I'll still answer to both ; )

Shipping (twice a week - days vary) : all orders placed in the US will be shipped PRIORITY + Delivery Confirmation ~ insuring safe arrival to you : ) First Class Shipping for all orders placed outside of the US!

About

Busy Hands All the Time!

I started Pinks & Needles in February 2008. Miss Sandi Henderson of Michael Miller Fabrics contacted me and said "You really need to open up an Etsy shop for all of your pins." My response to her was "What in the heck is Etsy?
And so it all began lol!

    I'd like to think I'm the Alpha because I out weigh my dad Bruiser by half...but that would be a big fat lie! Lol

    Growing up my backyard was a Vineyard Wonderland. The mustard grew so tall I could play Hide n Seek for hours and never be found if I so choose. My parents should've named me Alice.... I'm not a very good listener unless my heart is talking.

At this time most of the items I sell are "MADE TO ORDER" ~ but I do offer some items that are ready to ship immediately. I usually require 2-3 weeks before I am ready to ship to you but this changes constantly depending upon how busy my shop is. Since the holidays are upon us I realize that waiting 2-4 weeks for your items may be too long of a wait because of gift giving. No worries! Just convo me and let me know when you would need to receive by ~ I will do everything I can to fufil your order in a timely manner.

Thanks for visiting my shop! I hope you like what you see : )

Hugs~
Annie

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

My pin toppers are hand sculpted from polymer clay so they are somewhat strong but due to the miniature size of them they are fragile as well especially if they have ears or leaves etc that may not be all the way glued down. The best way to handle your pins is to avoid touching the actual decorative part and hold the steel pin itself when you’re inserting them into your pincushion. All of my pins have at least 2-3 coats of varnish on them to protect the hand painted parts from rubbing off. If they become dusty it’s best to take a small watercolor art brush and wet it with water and gentle brush the dust off. Some pins may be run under a cool stream of water (gentle pressure) very quickly and use a dry watercolor brush to wipe water away.
