Cornucopia - Pincushion on Parade Club
The Cotton Club's newest club is a Pincushion of the Month Club - Pincushions on Parade. Mary Jo Hiney is the designer. She is known for her beautiful work in silk. The first pincushion is for fall - a Cornucopia. She has made it both in Silk, using the Gracious Silk Packet (7 - 7 1/2" x 10 1/2" pieces of silk) and in cotton. For the cotton version she used the fabrics from the July/August Issue of The Cotton Club. Both are yummy. So much so, that we decided to make the club available in 3 ways. The Pattern and a Silk Packet, the Pattern and a Cotton Packet or just the Pattern. We like to make it fun for us and fun for you.
When we introduced Mary Jo's Silk Club, she designed a new project for every month. We expected it to be some little project to give you ideas on how to use silk, but instead, they were these fabulous projects: scarves, purses, pincushions, pillows, eyeglass holders and more. We are so excited about the pincushion club, because it gives us a chance to see another new design from her every month for another 12 months. Mary Jo will choose a theme for each month and if you sign up now, you will receive the first shipment now. The next one will be sent in September and has a Christmas/Holiday theme - three lovely designs for the price of one. These are keepsake pincushions and will be treasured for years to come!
Also, when you sign up for the club, we will enclose an information sheet on how to work with silk and some facts about it. Mary Jo backs hers with a lightweight Fusible Interfacing which we have available.
