Join Stacey and stitchers across the UK to design and sew your very own postcard to Her Majesty The Queen
Design and free motion embroider the front and back of a postcard to convey your personal best wishes to Her Majesty for this historic celebration
The project gives you the perfect reason to learn the wonderful and versitile skill of freehand machine embroidery or to refresh your skills in using your sewing machine as a drawing tool...
... not to mention the power of a collective conveying all of our thanks to Her Majesty for her life of service for us all
We would dearly love people who traditionally do not sew or attend craft workshops to join in. I strongly believe there should be no barriers for people participating in this mindful, creative and fun passtime. So, please, spread the word far and wide and grab the least likely person to sew in your life and help us bring the love of sewing into their lives too!
The postcard templates can be downloaded for free on www.janome.co.uk
Alternatively, the above kit is available to purchase to create your postcard without the need for transfering the templates as well as other required supplies
An indepth how to video will be available for free at www.janome.co.uk to help you create your own postcard
The finished postcards will be collated in Spring 2023 for an exhibition alongside the portraits Stacey is creating for this special year at exhibition venues TBC
And if all of that isn't reason enough to join in, if the images or videos of you creating your postcard are sent to Janome before the immenant deadline of the 21st May 2022, you will also be in with a chance of winning the fabulous 740DC Janome Sewing Machine too! What could be even better than that!
Visit www.janome.co.uk for full information and subscribe to www.stacey-chapman.co.uk for updates on her large scale Royal portrait project that is running alongside this campaign
The collated images and videos will be available to view on the Janome website and You Tube Channel and on www.stacey-chapman.co.uk too and it would be great to see your creation on there too!
The more of us that join, the bigger the impact and love we can show Her Majesty, so don't be shy, come join in the celebratory fun!
Best wishes and thanks,
