The Albuquerque ATC (Artists Trading Cards) trading meet repeats every month on the second Saturday at this location. More about Rhonda's Creative Crafting Center. More about ATCs:
Ed note: I haven't posted ATC announcements or links recently due to apparent drop in local interest. Despite an enthusiastic start, activity declined sharply following the 2007 Mountainair Art Tour. Yet there may still be ATC artists among us or artists who would take to creating and trading "pocket art." This is for them.

  1. I wonder what happened to that J. Darius Bake guy. He was a pretty cool artist, but apparently a gypsy.
    (hey)Jude

    I remain forever grateful to those of the mountains for presenting me to the art of the ATC.

  4. I'm sent this out as a separate e-mail in case you don't read the Evite or whatever reason.

    I'm asking for people to please come to this Saturday's trade event, even if you don't have cards to trade. As you may or may not know Rhonda is moving to Florida and will be closing up shop sometime in May. The shop might stay open if she finds a buyer but that does not guarantee the new owner will allow our group to continue meeting there.

    Therefore I would like for us to discuss the future for our monthly trades in terms of where we'll hold our gatherings. Turn out has been extremely low for the past year, we all have lots going on in our
    lives but if you are still interested in the group please come on Saturday, even if it's only for 10, 15, 30 mins.

    If you wish to no longer participate please let me know and I can remove you from the group so that your inbox isn't filling up with useless rubbish.

    Looking forward to seeing all you cool people!

  6. Some moved away, others moved on, another cuyo nombre no quiero acordareme went into hiding and may or may still make ATCs. I hope so because she made very attractive ones and I'd miss not seeing more of them. Linda Johnson, I think, still makes them - NM scenic watercolors - and frames them. She had some very nice ones for sale last summer during sunflower. Jude may still make a few to trade but mostly with fellow fiber artists she meets online. She could tell you better than I. At any rate, Jude always has new projects.

    Still, I would not be surprised to them make a comeback, if only because the topic always draws comments whenever it comes up here.
