    Fabric Postcard Ingredients Swap

    A fabric postcard swap for partners. Each partner will send the other "ingredients" to make a fabric postcard. After receiving ingredients each partner will make the other a fabric postcard out of those ingredients, or at least using most of them on the card. The artist can add some of their own ingredients to the finished card also.
    Please post your interest to participate. As names fill in I will post them into a partner group. Please post when mailing your ingredients; should be within two weeks of receiving a partner, when ingredients are received, posting your finished PC to your partner; should be within two weeks of receiving your ingredients and when receiving your postcard. We would all love to see the finished project too. You can mail the PC "bare naked" or in a clear bag. Postage is usually about .64 cents US postage. Watch your thickness, use seed beads or small charms if included on the card. Any questions post to thread or PM me. Postcard must be 4X6 inches or a little less.
    This is a great way to think creatively, challenge yourself to new mediums and receive a wonderful gift in the mail.

    Welcome poshscot. Please send items to make a postcard. You do not need to send the Timtex or stiffning in the center. You can send unusual fabrics, something representing your country, small beads, ribbons, sheers, lace, yarns whatever you wish to send. What you receive from monarch you will use to create her a Post Card. You do not need to use it all and you certainly can add something from your own stash to the finished card.

    I would love to join this swap.

    I am in England so if I could have a British (or European) partner if one signs up please. Or someone who wont mind the extra cost of posting to the UK. I know, postage costs can soon mount up, esp with sending small packets through the post.

    Can you tell me, do you get a surcharge in America if you receive a postcard that is larger than 6"x4"? A postcard in England is a postcard, up to A5 size.

    Jonquil post your card, let us see what you are thinking.
    Louise if the PC is over 4X6 it will be charged extra, it is out of the proper size for postcard fees. Actually the final limit on size is 6 1/4 by 4 1/4 inch. I would highly recommend you do not push that limit, go a little smaller.
    It is so good to see interest in this swap, thanks.
