June-July 2016 'Stitch in Time' ATC Swap

Hi Everyone
The theme for this swap is :

Stitch in Time

We all have those sewing jobs that we like to put off so let's leave them where they are and have some fun with this swap.
Feel free to interpret the Stitch in Time theme any way you like but your ATC must include:

                   Machine or Hand Stitching, and

       1.  Australian papercrafters are encouraged to participate in this ATC swap.
       2.  If you commit to the swap please, out of consideration for all the
            participants meet the set guidelines.     
       3.  To participate, write a comment to add your name to the list of participants
            below and I will email you my address details.
       4.  Post your ATC's and a stamped self addressed envelope to me on or by
            the posting deadline (see 7 below). I recommend that you put your ATC's
            into a plastic bag to protect them from bad weather.

Deadline dates:
       5.  Registration list for this swap opens Friday 3 June and closes Friday 10 June.
       6.  To register to participate please leave a comment before the closing date.
            I will then confirm the number of ATC's needed to be made for the current swap.
       7.  Swaps must be in the mail to me by no later than Friday 15 July (as mail can take
            a business week to arrive to me' depending upon where you are located and I
            should receive them all by Friday 22 July at the latest).
       8.  I will post swaps received on Monday 25 July at the latest so you should
            receive your ATC's shortly thereafter.

Participation governance:
            ATC swap numbers will be limited to ten people per swap.

            Founding members have automatic entry into each swap (but still need to
            confirm their participation for each swap).

            With the exception of founding members, participants will be eligible to take
            part on a 'first in' registration basis.

I do hope you will participate - any questions feel free to leave a comment.

What's an ATC?
An ATC is the acronym for Artist Trading Card.
For anyone new to ATC's it's a small piece of original work that measures 2.5" x 3.5".
There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to stick to the
measurements and the rest is up to your imagination.


  1. I hope you will join me for this swap :)

  2. Sadly, I'm going to have to pass this time. We are off to Ireland and London for our grandaughter's Christening in two weeks and wont be back in time.
    Next time I'm in though :)

  3. OOps just happened to drop in and see the swap is up and 2 days to closing ... yes, I'll join
