I am launching the BirdDog Press // Feedsack of the Month Club for 2009 and this is the chosen feedsack design for the month of January! Each month, I will be choosing a feedsack from my Granny’s collection and recreating it for print on my letterpress.

Inspired by my Granny in South Carolina who has collected feedsacks for years and years along with her quilting friends, I made some notesets and coasters last year from letterpress designs inspired by these fabrics. She asked me to print some to send to her feedsack friends, as she was curious to see if they could match them to the actual feedsack fabrics that they collected. The idea of fabulous monthly arrivals, popular for holiday giftlists, like beer/wine, seeds/plants/flowers is really fun and was further forced into fruition upon discovery of port2port press’s Card Society and simplesong’s letterpress subscription. I’m hoping to trade each of these for my monthly subcription. I LOVE good mail!
