The Beginning

Welcome to a new little blog which is associated with Happy Bobbin. On this blog we're going to be running some Artist Trading Card swaps just for the fabric and textile lovers - quilters, embroiderers, etc.

To start off we're going to be exploring some different techniques which will be the focus of our ATCs. We're going to be running swaps alongside each technique which gives you the opportunity to meet new people from all over the world and have a look at someone elses work when you receive your swap. Best of all, ATCs are quite small and usually fit into a standard sized envelope keeping costs right down.

If you don't want to swap ATCs with other people you can still participate in any of the technique workshops, and previous techniques will be archived so that you can always come back to them again.

We're getting the first technique ready, so please stay tuned. We imagine at this time that ATC swaps will run one swap a month. The first swap only has a 2 week sign up period, however after that we'll have a full month to sign up and a further month to get your ATCs made and sent. You will also be able to view your partners likes and dislikes so you can personalise swaps just for them.

I'm sure this will be great fun. Thanks for visiting!
