Kristen Glasbrook to Ruth Manning
Hi Ruth
Here still, there soon!
All the best for the beginning of a new season
Love, Kirsten

The pandemic has dramatically impacted our opportunities for socializing together in person. Though digital technology has offered some reprieve, there is nothing more special than receiving a postcard from a new or long-time friend! heARTscapes is the theme for this year’s tapestry postcard exchange and invites participants to connect with one another by weaving messages of care, hope, and inspiration during our time of social distancing. Participants must be an ATA member to participate.

Entrants will be randomly paired and will be able to exchange communication with each other in order to design a special tapestry postcard that they will send to their partner. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to submit their woven postcards to ATA. We will be promote submitted postcards on Instagram as a form of sharing these messages of heartfelt encouragement to others throughout the year. Details regarding suggested sizes of woven postcards, how to submit your image to ATA for social media promotion, and other details will be mailed to registered participants upon notification of their partner.

Registration fee is only $15. Membership required.
