UPDATE: 31 December 2011 
Thanks to All! Call Is Closed.
The final entries have been posted and documentation is forthcoming. 
Information about exhibition will be forthcoming. This has been slower than anticipated but I will continue to update here.


THEME: Artists from around the world are invited to submit a piece of original artwork based upon the theme of textiles. Media/Techniques: Let Your Imagination Run Wild through your fabric stash, your ribbons, yarns, felting material, embroidered, painted, or fiber-based mixed media, etc.

SIZE: Free, but postcard size suggested.
There will be  no jury, no fees and no return of artwork.
Submissions must be original work created by you.
ON THE BACK OF YOUR WORK: Your name, full mailing address, title of artwork, medium and email address, (website  if you have one).
EXHIBITION:  I'm trying to work out venues for free public viewing, and the completed call may become a "traveling trunk" show for textile groups. If you know of a group (or a quilt club, other textile groups) that might be interested, let me know and I'll start planning an itinerary. The shows will be viewed by the general public which will include children.

DOCUMENTATION: I will respond to each piece and will provide documentation to all participants shortly after deadline. All received postcards will be published  on the blog:

PLEASE! Leave comments for the artists, everyone loves to get feedback!  


  1. Sending you textile postcard for the project and a little something else!

  2. Thanks for the invitation to send some of my work. I'm up to my eyebrows at the moment but will send something as soon as I can.

    Interesting site. I assume you've checked out the various quilted postcard sites. Lots of people are doing very neat art and I'm happy to see someone like you trying to make it better known by the public.

    Being a Hoosier originally, I must check out where your town is.

  3. Thanks hyperpoesia for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    Hi June, Thanks for the note. Quilted postcards would be most welcome in this show. I've been involved with textiles from the museum/exhibition side professionally. I admire the skill of quilters tremendously and love them all, from Baltimore Album to Crazy Quilts, from handwork to machine quilted!
    If you'd like to share the call I'll send postcards that can be handed out to your group or friends. Just let me know! Thanks.

  4. You have received some amazing textile mail art, enjoyed looking at them! I hope to send you something soon.

  5. Thanks spopod! It's great to see your comment and I look forward to receiving your work for the Gallery!
