New for Spring: Cotton Lawn Ultra!
The tea towel calendar contest this year did not disappoint... not only are the top ten designs stunning, but so are the entries that didn't win! Amy Peppler Adams (PennyCandy) -- whose 2012 Tea Towel Calender won the contest -- is a Seattle-based artist with lots of fun, typographical fabric designs. This is her first contest win, so congratulations, Amy! We recommend linen-cotton canvas for tea towels, by the way.
