What is an ATC?

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.
