August 2016 Gallery

The theme for August 2016 was Kith and Kin. Each person chose to represent something that related to their family – perhaps based on the family name, something the family is known for, something they like to do together or anything else they can think of.  Where possible we have a viewers choice vote for the best card. This month’s winner was Meg’s card to Shane. Here they all are in all their glory:

September 2016 Theme

Last call for sign-ups for September 2016. For this month, choose a letter of the alphabet and decorate it up to your hearts content – some thread, beads, bit of bling, fmq, applique – whatever you want. As always any kind of needlework or fabric art is acceptable. Just a reminder of the rules for making postcards:

Postcards should be 4″ x 6″ in size and made completely of fabric i.e. use a fabric stiffener to give it body rather than cardstock.

Please keep a photograph of your card and place a post to say it has been mailed (don’t show the photo at this time).

When you receive a card from your swap partner, please place a post to say so and post a picture of the card you received.

Each month we will have a members’ vote for the best card and the winner will head the page until the next vote.

The photo that you keep of your own card is to allow for late delivery or a card being lost in transit – you can then send me the photo you kept so that your work is included in the vote.

Please try to mail out by the 24th of the month – if life gets in the way and you are going to be late, then post to let your swap partner and the administrator know.

If you would like to join in, you can either go to our facebook page Handmade Fabric Postcard Swap or contact me here and send me your name and address details.


Themes for September and October 2016

September’s theme is to choose a letter of the alphabet and decorate it up to your hearts content – some thread, beads, bit of bling, fmq, applique – whatever you want. As always any kind of needlework or fabric art.

October’s theme is  – a postcard-sized quilt. This is from a suggestion sent by Stephanie Lewin ages ago. Choose any type of block or quilt to represent – wholecloth, crazy patchwork, Log Cabin or any block that you can think of. We should all be able to attempt this one!

If you would like to sign up to join in any of the swaps you can do so either on our facebook page Handmade Fabric Postcard Swap or, if you are not a facebook user, contact me via this blog and I’ll assign you a swap partner on the 1st of the month.
