Spoonflower news and a giveaway!

Happy Friday everyone! I am so excited to share that Spoonflower has added my Mastering the Art of Fabric Printing and Design book to their Welcome Pack. So if you've been wanting to give digital fabric printing a try (or it makes a great gift!), here's a great way to dip your toe in the water.

Included in the pack are:


  • $35 in Spoondollar credit for the recipient to spend on Spoonflower
  • A Spoonflower swatch book with samples of all the fabrics and materials, including wallpaper and wall decals
  • A copy of my Mastering the Art of Fabric Printing and Design book which includes step-by-step tutorials for designing patterns (both digitally and by hand), as well as insider tips for developing a collection and bringing it to the marketplace.

I've teamed up with Spoonflower and we posted an excerpt from the book on the Spoonflower blog about how to create a seamless repeat by hand using paper, pen, tape and good old fashioned scissors. The full tutorial Paper Cutting Repeat tutorial from my book is available here.

AND, the fabulous folks over at Spoonflower are graciously giving away threee FREE welcome packs! Just hop over to register to win here before 2/5/13. They'll draw a winner on 2/6/13. Good luck!!


On a personal note, this is such a huge full circle moment for me. I started my entire fabric design journey by trying Spoonflower and just seeing what I could do. To have them including my book as part of their Welcome Pack is really, truly astounding to me. Never in my wildest dreams did I see where this all would lead. [Insert giant happy smile here] Thank you so much to Stephen, Kim, Garth and the entire Spoonflower team for making me a part of your family!

Love Spoonflower. I have never designed anything, but I am glad you got your start there. I love your stuff. I am sewing this weekend with Tufted Tweets and I love it.
