Wooden Pin Cushion - Large
An elegant pin cushion comprised of lathe turned wood and a velour cushion. The wooden base (measuring 3 1/2" (8.9 cm) in diameter) sits on three round legs. The velour cushion is sturdy and deep. It is filled with Vancouver Island sheep's fleece. The lanolin naturally present in the fleece serves to protect pins from rusting.
In contrast to all-fabric pin cushions, pins and needles are prevented from slipping deep into the pin cushion due to the wooden base - they will always be easy to grab!
These velour and wood lathe turned pin cushions are truly one of a kind. Each one is created by Vancouver Island woodworker, Wray Parsons and come with an etched signature by the artist. They are created using sustainably harvested woods - some local and some purchased from ethical exotic sources.
