Welcome 2015 – the Winter Sparkles on!

I feel so proud that there are now nearly 400 photos of beautiful textile Artist Trading Cards in the Very Berry ATC swap group on Flickr… We have had 5 swaps over the 20 months since we started – and I think there might be a few amazing people who have done every swap (if that is you – please let me know – I have an idea of who you might be, but don’t want to name names in case I miss someone!). Over the months it has been fantastic to see how things have developed and how we have learned and been inspired by each other. This, for me, is the absolute best part about being involved in craft swaps and in the online crafting community generally.

You will be glad to know that I am planning another 3 or 4 swaps this year – the next will begin in early February, to cheer those of us for whom it can be a terribly dreary month…

I wanted to share some of the beautiful work from the latest swap – all with the theme Winter Sparkle.

These are by (clockwise from top left) Helen, Ali, Larisa, Beryl, Catherine, Maureen and Paula.

There are some equally gorgeous ones in the swap pool – do go and take a look.

I hope all the Very Berry readers out there have a very sparkly 2015!

  1. Yet another wonderful ATC swap Ali. Thank you so very much for all the hard work you put inot organising these swaps. This was my fourth time to take part and I’m looking forward to the next round already.

  2. Hi Ali, thank you for including me, even though it was my first ATC swap. I’m thinking of asking for ATC’s to be put into a Saturday meeting or Quilt Camp in the City for my Quilt Group as a couple of ladies like them too. I haven’t been into Flikr, so not sure if the one I sent is in there or not, if not, I will post a picture tonight. thanks again.

    1. Yay, Flissycat made my ATC, but I don’t see the one I made, but I was late posting, so I’ll give it another week before posting the picture

  3. Hi Ali. I loved this swap. Christmas is my favorite part of the year. It’s been my fourth one. And I can’t wait for the next one. Thank you so much.

  4. I really enjoyed seeing all the different interpretations of the Winter Sparkle theme, there were so many lovely creative ideas, including the beautiful one I received 🙂
