    July Fabric Postcard Swap - Red, White & Blue

    This month, we will be celebrating Red, White and Blue! You will be making One Fabric Postcard.

    My swaps are open to all levels of sewing. For a tutorial on how to make fabric postcards, please refer to my post in tutorials How to Make a Fabric Postcard. Please post pictures of the postcards you receive.

    *Cards must measure approx 4 x 6
    *Must predominantly be sewed and quilted. Embroidery by hand or machine is also welcome.
    *Must have some type of finished edge.

    Note: We will only be sending a postcard from this point forward due to the cost of postage.


    Sign ups Begin 6 -14-18
    Sign ups End 6 -28-18


    Partners will be assigned 6-30-18


    PS: I am looking for someone to take over the postcard swap for 2019. I have enjoyed hosting this swap for two years but it is time for me to move on. Please private me if you are interested.

    I haven't done postcards but am interested to give this one a try. I've read your tutorial and some others. Do we actually mail these as a postcard or put them in an envelope to the person? I just finished 20 blocks in the red, white and blue 12" block exchange and do I have scraps that need a project! Count me in and tell me what to do after I make it.

    It's strickly up to you. Some people like the patina a postcard gets when it is mailed. I however, do not. I put a lot of time and effort in my postcards and consider them mini works of art. I use an envelope.(I buy them by the box at Walmart.) A lot of times, I use 3D elements that can get stuck in a machine. So, I always insist that they are hand canceled. Some people also use these plastic sleeves. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I use these also. (inside my envelopes) You don't have to. You can decide what is best for you. They take time on order as they come from England.

    My postcard is just about ready. I am just waiting on a new tool to come in to put the finishing touches on it. Yeah, go me, I will be an early mailer this month. I think I have finally hit my groove in making postcards again.

    You must mail your postcard off by the end of July. Or earlier if you have it ready. You have one month (July) to make and mail your card off.
