Stuck on Him

Sewers and fabric crafters need pins, and pins need a place to go. Artist JoAnn Stratakos' charming stoneware pincushion gives them a home where the woolly sheep roams. Wooliam's swirly black and white wool will hold all the straight pins you need. (Don't tell him, but he could almost pass for a porcupine that way.) Cute enough to leave out as decor, you can also stow him next to the sewing or craft box. Next time you're changing a hemline, whipping up a new outfit, or testing out a new quilt pattern, he'll be baaaaack. Handmade in Effort, Pennsylvania.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

"I tend to make things I like, things I’d like to have around me," says ceramist JoAnn Stratakos. Once the concept is in place, she uses her knowledge and expertise to guide each piece. In her Pocono Mountain studio, she creates one-of-a-kind glazes, giving her designs subtle variations and unique characteristics. The color and shapes are designed to compliment, not compete. Its the impressive shapes and functionality that makes JoAnn's items truly special.
