    SEW CLEVER, ATC Swap, Open Media, Due May 2

    SWAP DUE DATE: May 2
    SIGNUP/WITHDRAWAL DATE: Apr. 26
    NUMBER of ITEMS: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    NUMBER of PLAYERS: Unlimited
    MEDIUM: Open - Collage, Mixed Media, Fabric, Rubber Stamping, HD/HP
    NO Digital or Photography

    When my sister and I were growing up, Mom made all our clothes. We had a new school wardrobe each year, plus special Christmas and Easter dresses to wear to church. Those memories inspired this swap. It's all about sewing notions - buttons, snaps, tape-measures, thimbles, pincushions, spools of thread, fabric prints, dressmaker patterns, scissors, ribbon and lace trims, sewing machines, etc.....and I do love dress forms - adorned or unadorned. Though the theme cries out for embellishments, try to keep cards as flat as possible, and use any stickers with discretion, and not as the main focus.

    I really look forward to seeing what wonderful ideas you can come up with, and do feel free to share your finished cards in the thread!

    GUIDELINES FOR CARDS:

    * Please sign up on this thread only, not via PM, and if you need to drop out, please let me know in time. Late cards and no communication is inviting Neutral iTrader.
    * Be sure to put your very best work into each card, and I will try to swap effort for effort. A host card is not necessary but always appreciated!
    * Use only standard accepted measurements for ATCs, 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". be sure cards are sturdy enough and not so flimsy that they easily bend into a U-shape.
    * Please send each card in its own plastic sleeve, and secure safely inside the envelope (painter's tape or Washi tape works well).
    * On the back of each card, please include the swap name, your username, and your real name.

    GUIDELINES FOR MAILING:

    * When your cards are ready to mail, please PM me for my address. Returns will be mailed a few days after the due date, so do allow enough time in mailing your cards. Please allow at least 10 days to be safe, International more like 15 days. Extra postage is appreciated if there are raised embellishments.
    * U.S. players, please clearly write or type your address on a large mailing label or piece of paper. Include one Forever stamp, and I will provide envelopes.
    * International players, please clearly write or type your address on a large mailing label or piece of paper. Include a well-concealed U.S. one dollar bill or a Global Forever Stamp, and I will provide envelopes.

    Lastly, when returns are received, remember to give "You Rock" points to your return partners, and iTrader for your host. This may be easy to forget or overlook, but is so appreciated by the artists who worked hard on the cards you receive!

    Lurking, lots going on with my business right now. I love the swap idea, I use to sew ALL the time, I made and sold dolls and doll clothing/costumes. I always thought sewing machines should come with odometers, I'd love to know how many miles I've sewn over the years!

    Wow, OK! I am signing up Chromaphyll, xela7072, RaineyDay, Allegrae, and Cindylou. Hope I haven't forgotten anyone - do let me know.

    All you lurkers are very welcome! Hope to see you back again when time allows.

    Prex, that card is perfect. There are lots of embellishments, but they all look pretty flat. (I wanted that card actually, but it was already traded. I had this swap in mind at that time and was going to use that card as an inspirational example).

    Yes Please. This is right up my street. Before I started ATCing, I was always sewing.
