Small, achievable, and you find a happy surprise in your letter box!
EGV members all over Victoria are invited to join thATC 2017 Dece monthly ATC swap. You exchange one card every month February to November. You can join for part of the year if that suits you better. Contact Lynne Keys ([email protected]) or Margaret Ridland ([email protected]) for more details.

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 theme: ‘Psychedelic/Glitter’ – with lots of hand stitching.

What styles of stitching? While machine embroiderers and mixed media artists love ATCs,   traditional stitchers form a large part of our group. Surface stitchery, canvaswork, blackwork,  Hardanger, whitework: all techniques work happily with our themes.

The image below shows more hand-stitched cards
