Spoonflower got started. The wife of one of the company's founders, Stephen, was in search of large-scale yellow polka dot fabric to make curtains and the idea was born. Why can't custom, on-demand fabric be feasible for everyone? Well now it can...thanks to Spoonflower you can upload almost any digital image on their website and print your own fabric creations on various forms of textiles. It's seriously amazing...
Southern Blogger's Conference here in Raleigh and Spoonflower is graciously donating some great prizes and swatches to the swag bags, as well as printing our custom fabric signs for the event!

The employees also have regular design contests on how they can incorporate fabric into creative objects. Their creations, like hanging fabric umbrellas and fabric wall art, are featured throughout the Spoonflower facility. What a fun place to work!
Amy and I left Spoonflower with our heads spinning with ideas and since then, I've spent way too much time browsing through the Spoonflower Marketplace soaking in the multitudes of fabric designs already designed by others and available for purchase. If you haven't checked it out yet, you won't be sorry you did. One thing is for sure...you'll be seeing more Spoonflower around here!
