Feb 10 - Sweetheart Vintage Pin Cushion

Feb 10 - Sweetheart Vintage Pin Cushion


This wonderfully nostalgic piece duplicates the small, heart-shaped pin cushions created by soldiers during the First World War for their loved ones at home. Crafting was a popular pastime among British soldiers at rest behind the front lines or while convalescing from wounds, and one can find beautiful examples of their work in museums. Pin cushions were a popular item.


Working from several examples, Ulla has created a pattern and collected special materials, tiny pins, and beads and embellishments for you to turn into your own pin cushion.

Fee: $115; includes all materials
