This week's contest celebrates something we only rarely get to see during North Carolina winters, snowflakes. Over 300 designers created fabrics celebrating snow, but the winner turned out to be a designer who hails from an even warmer clime. Congratulations to our winner -- Maeli of Bandung, Indonesia -- and to the other designers whose lovely snowflake fabrics made the top ten this week.
