5th Annual EAC Winter Ornament Exchange
Hosted by Tulip Tree Needlearts, Chatham-Kent, Ontario :: Open to all EAC members
Before Nov. 1, 2017 send your stitched ornament (limit two per member) and you'll receive the same number back in time for the holidays! It can be your own design or from a published pattern.
To take part, stitch a winter ornament. It can be multi-dimensional, beaded or flat as long as you plan ahead for postage requirements. Use an appropriate container for the size and shape of your ornament, i.e., padded envelope.
Once you've completed your ornament, here’s what to do:
- Attach your name and contact information to your ornament and send it with a second, appropriately sized, stamped envelope (one envelope to send yours in, and another envelope for yours to go to its recipient). Check the postage carefully - be generous with the stamps on the second envelope (www.canadapost.ca). Remember it could go across 13 provinces and territories!
- Include a mailing/shipping label with your name and address - this will be affixed to the ornament coming to you.
- Before November 1, 2017, send your ornament, extra stamped envelope and shipping label to:
