We're very excited today to announce the <a href="http://www.fabric8contest.com/">Fabric8</a> finalists, eight talented designers whose designs won the most votes to go on to the final round of our competition. Each of the eight finalists will develop an additional three designs to form a collection for the final round. Voting on the finalists' collections will begin June 6, 2013, and the winner will be offered a contract to design fabric for <a href="http://www.robertkaufman.com/" target="new">Robert Kaufman Fabrics</a>. Congrats to the final 8 and to all the semi-finalists!
We love gardening, and there's nothing that delights us more than our little herb plants! We love picking a few fresh mint leaves or rosemary sprigs with our own hands and adding them straight to a pitcher of iced tea or a bowl of pasta. This week, create a fabric design that celebrates the traditional herb garden. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014.
Match point! Create a fabric design that celebrates the sport of tennis. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.
Back to school already? This week create a design depicting the most necessary school accessory--the trusty backpack. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, August 5th, 2014.
