Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap

Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap


The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap is a global swap of stitched postcard love, where people all across the world make a postcard-sized piece of art using any materials they like. The only rules are that it needs to include some kind of stitching, and it needs to fit with that quarter’s swap theme.


The 7th Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap is now live and open for registration here, with the theme CREATE. You can use any materials you like (paper, ink, fabric, ephemera, ribbon etc) , and put it together anyway you like to make a postcard. You can include ‘stitches’ any way you like – with a machine or by hand, and you can either send your postcard as it is, or pop it in an envelope to protect it. And in celebration of our brand new online course ‘PaperLove’ we are also challenging you to do something innovative with paper within your postcard design. This is your chance to be really creative, and share your love of creativity with someone somewhere else in the world.



  1. Interesting Maureen, but who on earth are they? They seem to be completely anonymous..

  2. Sorry Myfanwy! I am dangerous to let loose on blogs. I read about it over on Diana Mains Welte’s LILYWEEDS blog and the links didn’t work for me It is in association with Anchor and Coats (who will be known to you in the UK)
    There is also a paper company involved. I’ll try to blog more details

    I WISH I could find someone to tutor me in the art of blogging successfully.
