Swap categories: Crafts  Handmade 
Number of people in swap:8
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Last day to signup/drop:February 18, 2012
Date items must be sent by:March 6, 2012
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap, I'd like you to send 5 beaded stick pins to your partner. The pins should be the longer length and not the short pins used for sewing. Everyone seems to be adding stick pins to everything (myself included) and they are a good way to add some sparkle to your crafts.

If you are new to stick pins, there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube for you to follow.

When sending, please cover the pointy part of the pin so that they do not break through the packaging and cause injury or even put them in a box. Please package securely so they don't get ruined in the post.

Exactly how long is 'longer'?

When I saw this swap title I thought it said "Breaded Stick Pins." I was really, really curious about that!!

Where does one find the pins? this sounds like fun!!

EsmeAna 02/12/2012 #

@Mieke the pins I have are 2 and a half inches and longer

@quiltncat haha yeah even though I made this swap I had to keep checking it didnt say breaded!

@patuma I found some on eBay. They are normally listed as corsage pins I think.

MMmm, yum yum... breaded stick pin! A pin deep fried... you bite into it and get stabbed in the mouth. My favorite!

@ChesterSarah I will love you forever. :D I was looking for the word 'corsage pins' for ages. These are the pins I was looking for!! Thank you.

I will join the swap as well, I do have pins in the right size. :D

I bought a few packages of pins from Michael's craft store; You can even get them at Walmart, they are found in the bead section. I absolutely LOVE swapping these, as everyone makes them look so different!! Only thing is I'm on vacation on the sending date...

patumma 02/18/2012 #

Ok I will go check out walmart and michaels and see if I can find any!

Dear all, I am not Mieke, but a friend of her. Mieke asked me to logon to her account because she is very ill. She wanted to let you know that she will be late In sending. If that's a problem she wants to cancle the swap. Mieke can't sit behind the PC so she might be late to respond to any reply on this. Hopefully you'll understand this.

Good luck on this swap! All the best, Jorien (friend of Mieke :) )
