Wool Pincushions

A couple of us from our quilt guild, the Needlechasers of Chevy Chase, decided to take a wool class at a quilt shop on the eastern shore of Maryland.  The quilt shop is called Serendipity and is located in Dagsboro, Delaware.  It is a delightful shop with all sorts of fabric lines.  They also carry wool and yarn.  They are located right on the way to the beach, about 30 minutes from Bethany Beach, Delaware.  One of us has a place at Bethany so we made it an overnight field trip.

We had a great time and the wool class was lots of fun.  We each made a wool pincushion.  Mine is pictured on the upper right.  (I got a little carried away making French knots!)  I had not worked with wool before so I was happy to learn a new skill.  We used Perle Cotton No. 12 and Chenille needles, size 24, to make the buttonhole stitch.  The pincushions are filled with crushed walnut shells.


  1. Anne, your blog looks great! I enjoyed this little adventure in wool work with you. I hope we get to do some more in the future together.

  2. I love felted wool so much! The pincushions all look darling.
