Group Description

Welcome to Fiber Art Traders, a Mail Art Group. This group was founded in 2005 by fiber and mixed media artist, Normajean Brevik, http://sewnordic.blogspot.com. Normajean is a designer, writer and teacher that has been published in numerous books and magazines including: Quilting Arts; Cloth, Paper, Scissors; Studios; Somerset; Art Quilting; Sew Somerset; to name a few.

CURRENTLY THIS GROUP HAS SUSPENDED WEEKLY FIBER ART TRADES. HOWEVER, NEW MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN AND WE ENCOURAGE MEMBERS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ONE FOR ONE TRADES AND SHARE THEIR WORK IN THE SHOW AND TELL ALBUM. 1-1-14

We have many published members but we welcome artists of all skill levels in this group. We offer a safe and nurturing environment where accountability is a key component in organized mail art trades. We trade fiber art items like: Fiber Postcards (PC's), Art Trading Cards (ATC's), Artist Trading Pins (ATP's), Artist Trading Dolls (ATD's), Plus Size Inchies (PSI's), fiber books and pages, and mixed media pieces including charms, ornaments, talismans to name a few. We encourage members to host trades and share their experience with new tools and techniques with us.

We host teaching segments and sometimes offer free patterns. We encourage participation in National and International challenges and contests to help members grow in their art. We also collaborate on charity and community service work.

We welcome suggestions and input and ask that you participate in at least one group trade a year to remain in the group. Our trades are kept small to allow for a quicker turnaround and will usually range from 1 to 10 pieces. So if you are a newbie or an old hand at mail art trading, join us for some fun. We look forward to getting to know you.
