Postcards To the Station, Postcards At the Station

If you are settling in to some spring / summer sewing projects, I'm going to let you in on a very fun Call for Entry. The Kathy Theissen Gallery in Rosthern, Saskatchewan did this last year andit was such a hit that they are doing it again.  Anyone from anywhere in the world can mail a maximum of 2 postcards each are 4x6 inch pieces of art.  All entries will be displayed as an Exhibition, and auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Station Arts Centre.  So... you don't get them back, but you do get them on display and spreading joy.

Here are the details they posted:

We are receiving POSTCARDS TO THE STATION, a Postal Art Fundraising Exhibit, well before the deadline date. If you have 'liked' some of the postcards you have seen, you might want to send us one or two as well. Here is how---

What are the rules? 
Create a 4”x 6 “ work of art on the surface of your choice. All media is welcome (text, paint, print, fibre, photography, collage, leather, metal etc)
Your Art Work must come through the postal system (stamped by the post office). Limit of 2/person. Sign it on the front, indicate the title, medium & your contact information on the back. Your card must arrive at the Station on or before Friday June 16, 2017.

Station Arts Centre
Box 1078
Rosthern, SK, Canada
S0K 3R0

Who may participate? 
Emerging artists, professional artists and YOU… if you love a challenge!
Work posted to us will be part of a silent auction & exhibit in the Kathy Thiessen Art Gallery from June 27 to August 6th, 2017. 

The work is viewed in person and on Facebook.


And if you are too chicken (tsk tsk) and you'd like to try your hand at making a fibre art postcard, I'm running a class in Rosthern during the postcards exhibition, so you not only get to make your own, you get to enjoy a collection of cards on display from around the world.

Open to all.  Any sewing machine in good working order is required.  You need some assorted threads and a bobbin loaded with white.  I bring all the fun stuff.  We'll have a theme and you get to do your work creative thing... so come with an open mind.


And I have another secret...  but you'll have to wait for the next post.

I haven't made any postcards for a while, but I am getting back in the groove of sewing and quilting and general fabric fun so I just might have to participate. I am at the Saskatchewan Stitches Conference right now. Never knew there was so much quilty fun to be had in Saskatchewan!
