An excerpt:

''There are no fancy knick-knacks that have so pleased the popular taste as have pincushions, and they are to be found in almost every room in every house, besides forming a large proportion of the stock-in-trade of every bazaar stall. Indeed, to such a height has the mania for pincushions rise, that at many bazaars a whole stall is now often devoted solely to the sale of these articles. They range in size from the tiny ones which fit into an acorn cup, to those which measure as much as eight or ten inches across, and form prominent additions to the toilet or work-table.

Perhaps one reason for the popularity of pincushions is due to the fact that many of them may be made without any expense at all of just those odds and ends of materials that are often difficult to turn to good account. Scraps of silk, satin, plush, velvet and brocade, or the less costly, but quite as pretty, art muslins, cretonnes and sateens, may be made useful. So, too, may stray lengths of ribbon, from those of a few inches to as many yards long. Gold thread, beads, spangles, artificial flowers, needlefuls of silk, chenille, pompons, fringe and cord may all be pressed into service.''

Our customers say:

 ''Fabulous service!!, very HAPPY!!!, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!''

(patterns, mottos, initials, etc.)

The Coque (Rooster) Pincushion and Penwiper

''This quaint little article will find many admirers, comprising as it does many useful trifles, though made up of odds and ends such as the worker is likely to have at hand...''

The Bow Pincushion

''This very novel pincushion resembles a parge bow, such as is used for trimming hats, the loops of which are stuffed for the reception of the pins. It is not difficult to make, but much of the effect will depend upon the ribbon and the colours chosen.''

Hanging Bolster Pincushion

''The chief recommendations of this pincushion are that is is easily made, and that it will take long hat-pins as conveniently as it will the ordinary short ones.''

The Doll Pincushion

''The taste of the moment is all in favour of the use of dolls for foundations, as it were, for pincushions, and these are often dressed up in fancy costumes, representing many nationalities and grades of society.''

Pipe Pincushion

''A couple of briar pipes of the cheapest kind...form the main part of this novel little fancy.''

Cream-Jug Pincushion

''As an example of the way in which tiny china ornaments of various kinds may be turned to account as pincushions is shown here a tiny cream-jug, which, with its fellow sugar-basine, make a charming little pair of cushions, one stuffed for holding ordinary pins, the other for hair-pins.''

Life-belt Pincushion

''White and gold form one of the prettiest combinations of colour that it is possible to have, and a pincushion in the shape of a life belt, for which these two tints are required, is remarkably effective, and quite easy to make.''

The Vase Pincushion

''This vase pincushion is particularly attractive, and would form no inconsiderable addition to a prettily-arranged toilet table.''

Key or Diagram Block

''This...shows the shapes for cutting out the...pincushions''

Toilet Pincushion

''This oblong pincushion is of a kind that is strictly useful, and even the gay ribbons that form a lattice across the top in no way interfere with its convenience.''

Fan Pincushion

''This a smart pincushion, for to make it properly, gold thread, spangles, and coloured gems, should be freely used.''

Star Pincushion

''The fancy for making pincushions in patchwork fashion of a great number of different scraps of silk is a very old one, but the effect is so good of some of these old-fashioned patterns that no excuse is needed for re-introducing them here.''

Heart Pincushion

''This is a quaint little pincushion that is very plump in shape, and is liked by many people better than anything more elaborate and fanciful. It is convenient to use, and is therefore to be ranked as one of those pincushions that are appreciated by a gentleman either in his dressing-room, or within easy reach of his writing-table.''

Cushion for Hat Pins

''A soft woollen ball such as serves as a plaything for very young children makes an excellent pincushion either for hair-pins or the long glass-headed hat pins.''

Ivy Leaf Pincushion

''A pretty little flat pincushion is to be made in the shape of an ivy leaf, and it commends itself to the notice of those who like to have pins at hand in their dressing-cases, desks or bags, as it takes up little room. Nothing can be easier to make, and there are many other leaves that can be used besides the ivy. There are maple, vine, creeper, oak, and shamrock leaves, &ct.''

Cluster Pincushion

''A group of three, four, five, or even more, pincushions tied together with many coloured ribbons forms a particularly attractive addition to a bazaar, and will be appreciated all the more by the worker on account of the convenience with which all sorts of small scraps of gay silk, satin, and brocade may be used.''

Witch's Hat Pincushion

''The witch's hat is quite a novel shape for a pincushion, and one which, being easily made, is sure to be popular.''

Bridal Pincushion

''This novel little pincushion receives its name from the orange blossom which forms the main part of its decoration, the pincushion itself taking the form of an orange in almost its natural size.''

Bracelet Pincushion

''The ladies who make their own dresses and fit one another's bodices, do not often feel inclined to press a third person into the service to hand the pins, as is not infrequently done by professional costumieres. For them any little contrivance that helps to lessen the labour of making a gown, and saves trouble in any way, will be warmly appreciated, and those who have once tried the bracelet pincushion will never do any fitting again without it.''

Hassock Pincushion

''This is another of the old-fashioned pincushions which, owing to their very convenient shape, are always in favour among such ladies as do a great deal of plane and useful needlework.''

The Folly Pincushion

''The ''Folly'' pincushion is one of those which are merely fantastic in shape, and do not intend to represent anything which is not really put to such a use. The materials and their colours may be entirely left to the convenience and taste of the worker, but it is essential that they should be as gay as possible and as varied in tint as can be.''

The Egg and Spoon Pincushion

''A small-sized wooden cooking spoon forms the foundation of a pretty little pincushion, which often gives rise to much amusement when presented appropriately. It is very easily arranged, and so quickly that there would be small difficulty in making do half-a-dozen or more for a bazaar.''

The Rose Pincushion

''A large, full, artificial flower, such as a rose, dahlia, chrysanthemum, or carnation, may often be converted into a novel and really decorative little pincushion.''

Bonbon or Cracker Pincushions

''These are specially suitable for drawing-room or boudoir use. They are very effective and pretty, and a useful shape for holding pins.''

The Tunnel Toilet Pincushion

''This shape, while fulfilling its purpose of holding the pins, forms also a receptable for the comb and brush, and though original and uncommon, is quite decorative as well.''

Beech Nut Pincushion

''Treasures brought in from the woods in the shape of acorn cups, fir-cones, and the husks of beech nuts and of sweet chestnuts are often made to do duty as pincushions.''

Box Pincushions

''The newest of these are made round shape, like collar boxes, and bonbon and dried fruit boxes serve for the foundation of many.''
