New York designer Samarra Khaja (SammyK) wins her third Fabric Of the Week competition with Friki Tiki Family Portrait, beating out 73 other designs in our Tiki-themed contest. The only other designer so far to win three contests is Danielle Hanson of the UK. Kim and I actually had the good fortune to meet up with Samarra when we visited New York a few weeks ago. Incredibly nice and amazingly talented: she's both. Read more about She's Super Tiki: SammyK Wins Tiki Fabric Design Competition.
