We asked twelve of the world's most talented needlework artisans to design a pincushion… and the result was phenomenal.

Introducing a brand new series of books from Inspirations – The Design Collective.

In this first volume, we’re giving Pincushions a makeover.

Each designer was given the same brief. There were no rules. No guidelines. The only criteria: the final project must house pins and needles.

The result? The most imaginative, clever, and artistic pincushions you have ever seen.
