ATC Trade Meeting

This month's theme is Disney Character or Wild Animal. I want you to have fun with it. Are you into Disney? What was your favorite character growing up or now? or Do prefer to make something with a wild animal? Maybe you can pick an animal that represents you and share with us why. As long as the cards are similar, they don't have to match. Same quality though.

Materials and Techniques: Any that you will like including fabric, felt, needlepoint, different art techniques, dry/wet embossing, stamping, collage or whatever you want to use.

Please make sure to create an ATC for each member that RSVP including yourself.  You keep your first card and trade the others.

Also, cards must be the same theme but they don't have to look the same. For example, you could do Snow White and have Snow White on a card, the seven dwarfs, the evil queen, the prince and the apple. Or you could have Mickey and Friends with different characters. Or you can do all the same character with different poses or backgrounds. Please have fun with it.

This is an in-person meeting. (Online option available for those that one to participate but cannot physically come due to schedule or other conflict.) This practice will make trades easier to manage. Thanks.

Parking is free for the first 3 hours. This is a great place to hang out.

    I so hoped to come but with my schedule I found you too late to make the 10 atcs. See you next month! I have a question can you alternate with the online group for months you can't make it? Do you always meet on the 2nd Tuesday?

      yes you can participate in both or one or the either. the online version of the group is for indiviudals who can't physical come to in-person trades. meetup.com is fuel by in-person meetings and in fact, i have to agree to a statement before launching the group that I am committed to having in-person groups.
