Questionaire

Three members have taken on the task of revamping the PostMark’dArt site in an attempt to attract more ACTIVE participants!
mea culpa! I’m one of the lax ones, as I felt it was arrogant of me to display my work for sale when I have so much yet to learn . Anyway, Karen Musgrave posted a questionnaire, and here are my replies:

1. How often do you quilt (sew the layers together) your postcards? Frequently
2. What do you use for the middle layer? Fast 2 Fuse
3. What do you use for the back-fabric? paper? Mostly fabric
4. How do you apply the stamp? Just normal self adhesive stamp
5. How often have you had a postcard arrive with no stamp? Needing extra postage? NEVER
6. Do you go to the post office to mail? Simply mail them from your mailbox? It depends on how textured card surface is! If I think the card needs protective cello, the PO
7. How do you apply addresses? If by pen, what kind? Print on your computer? Pen: ZIG Calligraphy pen Archival quality
8. How do you display your postcards? Individually on small tripods; Massed in a fish bowl; Some framed and hanging in groups on walls.Stored in archival postcard boxes
9. How do you generally finish the outer edge of your postcards? Mainly machined blanket stitching; some : fancy yarns.
10. What is one piece of advice you were give someone starting out? Don’t stress! Remember you’re doing it for FUN and friendship. No question is ever too dumb to ask;some one will ALWAYS help you
11. Why do you exchange postcards? I LOVE getting mail! I love seeing the ways people interpret the same idea.And the friendships made along the way is heartwarming
