Lovingly Lissa Pincushion Swap 2021 Information Sheet

Welcome to the Swap!  Please read the information below before joining.

There is a $5.00 participation fee for the swap, the fee is not refundable.

When you join the swap, you receive the Whirl and Twirl Pincushion pattern by Lovingly, Lissa.  You do not need to use this pattern to participate in the swap.  A PDF of the pattern will be sent to you with your swap partner’s information email.  

You agree to abide by deadlines given for the swap.  

The dates for the Pincushion Swap 2021 are as follows

March 23rd – Sign ups begin.

March 28 – Sign ups close.  Sign ups will close earlier if 250 swappers join.

April 4th – Partner emails will be sent by this date.

April 10th – Mosaics* posted on Instagram.

April 20th – Progress photo posted on Instagram.

May 1st – Shipping Deadline.

*Mosaics – a mosaic is a post showing things you like to help guide your partner in making an item you will like.  Please include colors and fabrics you tend to gravitate towards in this Instagram post.  You may also include handmade pincushions you like.  Please make sure to tag the creator of any pincushions in your post.

Progress photo – please share the progress of your creation!!!  We want to see what you are making and drool over it!  

Please ship by the deadline.  

Please give at least 7 days past the shipping deadline (closer to 2-3 weeks if international shipping) before contacting me that you did not receive your pincushion.  Be patient, something will arrive!  If there is a delay that I am aware of I will notify you.

You agree to communicate with me at lovinglylissaswaps@gmail.com if for some reason you can not complete the swap.  I get it, things happen.  Just let me know.  

Please allow me 24-48 hours to respond to an email.  Maybe a little more time if it happens over a weekend. Thanks!

Don’t reveal the recipient of your swap!  Partners are a surprise.  The person you are making for is not necessarily making for you. 

Your Instagram account must be public so your partner can see your mosaics and get an idea about things you like.  It also allows me to keep track of participation.

Please use the following hashtags for the swap;  

#PINCUSHIONSWAP2021

#LOVINGLYLISSASWAPS

Post plenty of pictures showing what you are working on and comment on other swapper’s posts.  This is a great way to build community and friendship.

Please be sure to post when you have received your swap item and thank your partner!  

Honestly, all I ask is that you do your best, enjoy yourself, and don’t flake out.  If something happens, contact me.  I’ve got angels happy to help.

If you agree with all of the above, please fill out this Google Form. 

After completion you will get a paypal link to pay the $5 to participate.  Please include your instagram handle in the notes of the payment so I can correctly mark you as paid.  

Thank you!!!

Lovingly,

Lissa
