Textile Mail Art Project


I've had so much fun making ATCs recently and through the connections I’ve made with people overseas I’ve discovered a beautiful idea called the Textile Mail Art Project. The idea is to have artists from all around the world submit a piece of original artwork based on the theme of textiles. This has got me a little excited at the limitless possibilities for having a real play around with the materials we all use in quilting and extending the experimentation I am doing with ATCs into a slightly larger format.

The deadline for this project has been extended to October 31, 2011 so there is still time to join in if you would like to make something for this project.

Go check it out and have a look at some of the gorgeous projects that have been submitted so far!

Hellooo! I'm Godssongg from the update your blog swap.

I love that you quilt! i have always wanted to try, I used to sew before I got married and moved out of my parents house. I'd love a sewing machine. All of your projects are wonderful! I can't wait to see your electrotextile finished project!

Happy swapping and crafting!

Hi! Thanks for blogging this, I'm excited to see such beautiful and creative work here and look forward to adding a piece (or two!) to the gallery.
You're the greatest! :D
And I promise the thrill of sending "dressed" postcards through the mail is addicting. Some people have even sewn the postage on their work!
Please stop by and have a look. The door is always open at the Textile Mail Art Gallery!!

I'm new with blogging but I 'm happy I found you. I want to make the QAL Raid your Stash but only found 7 patterns. Are there more? Hope to continue with this blog. I love your stuff and love the chicken purse!!
