      1. Ive sent several and as long as the embellishments don’t get caught up in the postal machines, they will arrive safe and sound.


    1. I have sent and received dozens. I have even made some with pockets and sent gift cards. They have all arrived. I invite you to check out my blog. I have a 1 million mile quilted postcard challenge that just started Jan 1. So far we are at 70,000 miles.

  2. This is awesome and I already have an idea forming! Just wondering if the postcard should be entirely made of fabric or is it okay to attach fabric/stitching to firm paper?


  3. Really great project! I am sorry I have missed it! Congratulations to all the artists. Claudia, thanks for sharing! It was a pleasure to meet you.
