ATCs – Artist Trading Cards
EGV members are invited to join the monthly 2017 ATC swap. You can choose to exchange 1, 2 or 3 cards each month, and you can join for part of the year if that suits you better. Contact Embroidery House for more details.
What do they look like? Just Google Artist Trading Cards for thousands of images. The first image on this page shows some cards for the December 2016 theme: ‘Psychedelic/Glitter’ – with lots of hand stitching.
What styles of stitching? While machine embroiderers and mixed media artists love ATCs, plenty of traditional stitchers join in too. Canvaswork, blackwork, surface stitchery and more. (Hardanger and other whitework lovers, your technique is perfect for August’s theme. The image below shows more hand-stitched cards)
