Hand-turned Oak Pincushion Base

23rd February 2024

It’s no secret that within the pages of Inspirations magazine you will find projects from some of the most talented and creative needlework artisans the world over.

Along with that privilege comes the challenge of trying to source some of the amazing materials they use, particularly when it comes to how the finished piece is displayed.

Have you ever fallen in love with a pincushion project, only to discover you can’t find anywhere to purchase the base?

In anticipation of this very problem, when releasing Lorna Bateman’s new project ‘Fleurs Sauvage‘ from Inspirations issue #121, we have sourced the same base she used and added it to our website.

This stunning hand-turned, oak pincushion base with three wooden feet includes the cushion area already built for you, all you need to do is cover it with either the ‘Fleurs Sauvage‘ embroidery or any design of your choosing.

This base is suitable for any project with a finished stitching area measuring 10cm (4″) in diameter.

If you’re looking for other projects that also use a pincushion base, below are a few suggestions from the Inspirations magazine library. Just remember, not all of them will have a finished size that matches the base we’re selling above, so you may need to scale the design up or down to suit.
