Fabric8: botanical sketchbook

The 2015 Fabric8 Contest theme is Botanical Sketchbook. Grab your sketchbook and take some time to stop and smell--and draw--the flowers! In this year’s Fabric8 Contest, Spoonflower and Moda Fabrics are seeking designs reminiscent of those found in a botanical sketchbook. Whether you celebrate the lush botanicals of the tropical forest of your dream vacation or the dandelions peeking through your sidewalk, show us a page from your book with your entry in this year’s Fabric8 Contest! Please head over to the Fabric8 Contest page for full details: http://www.fabric8contest.com/. 100 semifinalists will be selected by Spoonflower and Moda Fabrics, and our community chooses 8 finalists starting August 27th, 2015. Entries will be previewed using the scale of a fat quarter of fabric (21"x18").

State fair

Here in Spoonflower's home town, the State Fair is by far one of our most beloved fall traditions. Local farmers show off their biggest, best crops and livestock, we ride colorfully-lit ferris wheels, and indulge in probably more fried delicacies on a stick than we should. We want to know what your version of the State Fair looks like where you live! Let us see your best State Fair designs in this week's design contest. Deadline for entry is Tuesday, September 15th, 2015. Voting will open Thursday, September 17th, 2015.
