Folkwear Postcards

Did you know that April is National Card and Letter Writing Month (as designated by the USPS)?

We have been sending postcards out with our orders for the last year as a fun way to thank you for your order and to provide updated contact information. We love the beautiful (Gretchen Schields) artwork on the cards, and thought you would too!  Do you ever use your postcards?  We would love to know where they end up!  In case you haven't been using them -I mean, they are lovely stuck on a fridge or on your wall, so that's totally fine too - but if you haven't been mailing them, we have a few ideas for you!

  • Write a friend that you haven't seen in a while.  A surprise note in the mail always brightens someone's day!
  • Leave a random note of kindness in a public location (no littering) for a stranger to find (like in a library book or on a coffee shop table, etc.).  You never know how much it may mean to someone!
  • Use them for your thank you note. 
  • Send it with your sewing (or knitting, etc.) creation if your project is a gift for someone.
  • You can always send us a note to let use know what you are making, what you love (or don't) about our patterns, or ideas for new patterns.  We love fan mail!
  • Send a letter to an enlisted soldier through Soldiers' Angels
  • Write your US Representatives!

And, share your ideas in the comments on this post and let us know what great uses you have (or will) put the postcards to!
