Postcards: Behind the Scenes

Quite a bit of prep work went into the fabric postcard workshops. In some cases, fabric was washed and dried. Most of it was given a fusible backing. Then a lot of it was fussycut into small pieces, typically with a design element (such as a single typewriter key). Some shapes were leaves and flower petals. (Did someone have a die-cutting gadget?) So when guild members arrived, construction was speeded up by all this advance work. Here are two photos of some of the pre-made elements. -- Rachel Holmen
