About the Author:

Christa Rolf grew up with fabrics and still feels the same passion for textile materials. Patchwork, sewing and embroidery are her specialties. For more than ten years she has turned her hobby into a career and has since worked as a course instructor, author and managing editor OZ Verlag, the parent company of Christophorus publishing house.

Review:

"Make your own postcards, collect them in an album, swap them with other people and have fun using up your stash of fabrics, beads, yarns and anything else that can be stitched onto a 4"x6" rectangle of stiffened fabric."  —MyShelf.com



"These cards are a wonderful way of experimenting with new techniques and learning about different materials and their applications."  —Fabrications Magazine

"Just in case you're stuck for ideas, there are over 30 different postcard designs and the techniques used to make them are all clearly explained."  —Stitch Magazine



"Stitch something different and try out new techniques whilst making artistic postcards that are fun to make and lovely to keep."  —Sewing World



"With contributions from other designers Christa has put together a comprehensive book of ideas and techniques using a wide variety of materials."  —West Country Embroiderers Guild Newsletter
