National Celebration of Stitch

Due to pressure of work and family committments there will be no Be Creative in July. However, here is a chance to be as creative as you like and be rewarded for your efforts!

Saturday August 2nd has been designated the National Celebration of Stitch. Various UK branches of the Embroiderers’Guild have organised venues for stitching, but what about those who are not members of a branch – or who can’t get to a venue – or ……. Well, here is an event for you!

Artist Trading Cards are small works of art that can be made using any technique, but in celebration of Stitch this post is to announce an exchange of stitched cards. There is no specific theme, the only criteria is that some stitch must be included somewhere – hand stitching, machine stitching – your choice. ALL STANDARDS ARE WELCOME – YOU ONLY NEED AN INTEREST IN STITCHING TO TAKE PART.

If you would like to take part please complete the form below with your name and address. By completing the form you are committing to making an ATC and sending it to the participant whose name you will be given. This form goes directly to me – you will receive details from ATCexchange (at) – you can also email directly if you prefer. Your ATC doesn’t have to be stitched within the day – more details to follow when you respond. Please note – you need to tick the box that mentions the Be Creative Celebration of Stitch or I won’t know to which post you are responding, that is the only reason it is there! If you don’t have a website please leave the box blank – it’s a courtesy box so that a link can be made at some point if applicable. PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS. Extra emails just add to the admin – and remember, there is no charge to you for this. Check and double check your email – if you are a registered WordPress user I will probably have an indication that you have typed it incorrectly, but if you don’t hear from me within a week I suggest you submit another entry.
