black cat pin

I gave a talk today at the First Congregational Church in my home town of Falmouth, MA. The audience included many needle workers who were very curious about how I made some of the pieces I showed in my slide presentation. Jo Ann Coleman brought a black velveteen cat pin to show. It’s one I had made over 30 years ago for her son, who was a classmate growing up in Falmouth. In the late 70′s, early 80′s, I made custom¬†pins for customers who send photos of their cats. I remember seeing the picture of this big black one with a white beard. It’s wonderful that these pins I made decades ago keep coming back into my life!¬†You can read more about the pins here.

  1. Even then you had great ingenuity in how you did the eyes, the ears. So neat that they still had it – a little treasure from so long ago!
