Trade Card Tuesday: Vive St. Ann & a Giveaway!

The last postcard in this month's St. Ann series features a lovely seamstress with a green sewing machine.  Once again, I'm not able to identify the sewing machine, but the clues (clothing, hairstyle, non-black sewing machine) in the vignette all point to post-WWII.  

The card was printed in France by Editions Superluxe - Paris.  Never used, so no postmark to help determine the date.

With St. Ann being the patron saint of seamstresses, I thought it would be fun to observe her feast day - July 26th - with a sewing-themed linky party.  Please join me on Friday and share a blogging post about your current sewing project or any sewing project you feel is appropriate for the day.  It doesn't have to be quilting related, but it should be sewing related.  

And - because Friday will also be my 200th blogging post, I'll also be giving away some French-themed charm packs.

Just join in the linky party with a new blog post about your St. Ann project - it doesn't have to be a new project, just a new blog post to celebrate sewing in honor of St. Ann.  I'll draw the winning names from the proverbial hat and announce the names on Sunday evening.  The Celebrate Sewing linky party starts Friday morning and ends Saturday at midnight.  


  1. I've really enjoyed your St. Ann series cards Angie! Hopefully I'll be home in time to take part in your linky party :*)

  2. Looks like a lovely Japanese clone. I have some in blue, and in black. No green (yet).
