We had a great meeting today, learning the history of pincushions, their fillings, and looking at some of the beautiful pieces is museums around the world. Karyn presented everyone with kits to reproduce an 1842 quaker pin disc on 40 count Havana Weeks Dye Works linen with silk thread. We were able to welcome two new members.
