We’ve recently joined forces with yet another amazing sponsor—Spoonflower Fabrics. If you’re a crafty soul, and you’ve never heard about Spoonflower, then I am about to make your day. Spoonflower is a specialty fabric provider—and get this—you can actually design and print your own fabric. Yes, you heard me right. You can design your own fabric. No more looking at a project and getting frustrated because you can’t find the perfect fabric. Now you can get perfectly customized fabric in a variety of weights.
From their website: Spoonflower was founded in May 2008 by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but who knew nothing about textiles. The company came about because Stephen’s wife, Kim, persuaded him that being able to print her own fabric for curtains was a really cool idea. She wasn’t alone. The Spoonflower community now numbers over half a million individuals who use their own fabric to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and much, much more. The Spoonflower marketplace offers the largest collection of independent fabric designers in the world. The site has appeared in the New York Times, Associated Press, Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, Make, CRAFT, ApartmentTherapy, Photojojo, and many other terrific publications and blogs.
So we pretty much think Spoonflower is amazing. Besides the ability to make your own fabric, you can choose from hundreds of pre-made designs…most of which are gorgeous. Spoonflower also has resources like cut and sew patterns and a blog dedicated to DIY sewing projects.
And we’re thrilled about this…for Indie Craft Parade this year, Spoonflower is donating a significant number of cut and sew Hugos (our elephant mascot)! People who attend our event can make and take home their own plush Hugos. It’s going to be amazing.
So thank you, Spoonflower! We think we’ve got quite a future together.
