Sew Many (More) Pins

I’ve just shipped another batch of scrappy, quilty pins to Brandy in beautiful BC!

You may remember the first batch? Well, it was great fun to get to do round two – even with those teensy-tiny, hand-cut red hearts! Ack!*

If you are a quilter, Brandy has a great website with a blog, online store and instructional videos, and you can even listen to archives of her podcast, Canadian Quilt Talk (perfect for listening to whilst quilting, I imagine!)

Sew Many Pins!

Several months ago, I had the opportunity to create a large order of custom domino pins for a friend (and ex-Winnipegger), Brandy Maslowski.

All of the pins feature fun, “quilty” sayings and are available on Brandy’s website – Brandy Lynn Designs

I had so much fun creating these pins – especially the special “I ❤ CQT” pins with cut-out red hearts. They were a little more work, but I love, love, love how they turned out.

Be Well Domino Pins

Several weeks ago, I was invited to “Be Well Connect” – another fantastic event held by my friends at the Manitoba Canola Growers. Since I had shown up empty-handed to the last couple of events, I figured it was time to bring along a little representation of what I do, to share with the group.

After about 4 seconds of thought, I decided to make a batch of my domino pins for the group. There was no question that they would be canola yellow, and the “Be well!” tagline was already written for me; all I had to do was round up some dominoes and put them together.

Everybody likes getting swag (and especially something handmade), but I was still very happy to see everyone’s reaction to the pins. It was a wonderful evening, but being able to share my craft with such a warm and generous group of people made if just that much more special for me.

I haven’t been making the domino pins for craft sales for the past two years, but I am always accepting custom orders of 3 pins or more. Please contact me for details. Custom pins are 3/$18 (plus shipping, if applicable).
