Pincushions are:

  • visually interesting
  • easy to work with
  • long lasting
  • easy to care for
  • great in masculine arrangements
  • fragrance free
  • a favorite of mine!

I’d love to know how you feel about pincushions. Most people either love them or don’t care for them at all. What about you?
