Fibercards Textile Festivals

Want to see your fibercard on our wall in October 2017?

We introduced the fibercards for our 20th Anniversary we introduced the fibercards, and here you can see the lovely result. We are so pleased with this result that we have decided to repeat the fibercard exhibition again next year.
From October 19th to October 22rd, 2017 the 21st edition of Textile Festivals will take place in MECC Maastricht, and we cordially invite you to participate in the special fibercard exhibition.
What do you have to do?
Below you can find the instructions for making a fibercard. Create your own design for your fibercard, either following the Championships theme of “Speed”, or without a theme. You then simply send us the completed fibercard by mail. Surely you want the chance to have your fibercard exhibited at OEQC 2017 too, don’t you?!
Instructions for making a fibercard:

You need:
• A piece of adhesive batting, slightly larger than 15 x 15 cm.
• A postcard, a larger piece of heavy paper or thin cardboard. Keep the weight of the card in mind with regards to the number of required stamps.
• Cotton ticking or a piece of unbleached cotton.
• Glue stick.
• Make a small “quilt” on the adhesive batting without backing, or using thin cotton.
• Attach the cotton to the post card with your glue stick. Cut the cotton to fit the size of the card.
• Iron the “quilt” on the card side. This is only possible if you have used adhesive batting. If you have used thin cotton, then glue the cotton to the card. Cut the card to size (15 x 15 cm).
• Zigzag stitch the postcard with colored yarn with a minimum 1.0 stitch length and stitch width 2.5 – 3.0 / 0.4 / 0.5.
• Please note! Do not use black background fabric or black yarn to zigzag your fibercard. The fibercards will be presented on a dark wall. This will lead to dark fibercards or details fading into the background.

Additional information:

A fibercard can be sent as a regular post card, without an envelope. To do this, simply cut out a square at the corner for the postmark, and this way the mail man can enjoy your card too! Wrap your card in plastic if you used beads or other embellishments. Use tape on the front side of the card, to make sure the address is clearly visible. You can also send the card in a regular envelope. Please note that fibercards will not be returned after the show.

Please send your fibercard to our office address before October 1st 2017 at the following address:
