Pincushion Parade!

These pincushions are true workhorses of my sewing room.  They see heavy use and tend to be a little frayed around the edges!  Some are homemade, and others have been collected here and there at rummage sales and thrift stores.  To be honest, I didn't realize I had this many until I went searching to gather them up for a photo!  And, I think I'm missing a few, too!

This one gets a spot of honor as my son found it for me at a secondhand shop, and it's definitely old.  Another seamstress long ago took some time to embellish not only the cushion itself, but she also made tiny, satin toppers for some of the longer pins.  It's very sweet, and I keep it on top of an antique sewing cabinet in my sewing room.
Go over to the Pincushion Parade at Love, Laugh, Quilt to see lots and lots more 'cushions!  And add yours to the mix, too!


  1. What a FUN collection. Getting one from your son is EXTRA special!

  2. You sure have a lot!!!
    Have a nice day

  3. It was fun to gather them up and now to go along the parade and see everyone's pin cushions and to think of all of us happily sewing! I am from the midwest and am now on the west coast...wondering if it's more fun on the other side!!!!
