Finger Pincushion; smallest item, biggest seller

Finger Pincushion 1

   My husband and I create literally OODLES of pincushions, selling to quilt shops across the U.S. We have our own wholesale website and work with another distributor as well. In addition, we sell them in our crafty Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/OodlesOfWhimsy) and at the local Farmer’s Market. We offer a variety of shapes and sizes in every color of the rainbow :) Without a doubt, our smallest item is definitely our biggest seller !
So what is a Finger Pincushion ? And what’s the big deal about it ? Well, it’s a mini pincushion that you wear on your finger or thumb while hand sewing. It’s tiny and portable; doesn’t take up much room so you can tuck one in your travel sewing kit, car glove box, purse or overnight bag. You can keep one stashed in your office drawer for those little emergencies like repairing a sagging hem or replacing a popped-off button. You can hem curtains while they are hanging and this little pincushion moves along with you so you aren’t tempted to stick a pin or needle in a nearby chair cushion or (heaven forbid~) in your mouth. When the phone or doorbell rings, your pincushion stays safely with you keeping pets and toddlers away from pointy pins and needles while your attention is elsewhere.

I enjoy seeing new things, hearing new ideas. Maybe you’re like this, too.
