I was thrilled to see every one of the members of our merry band step up to the staff contest design challenge. For some it was a first attempt at designing fabric, but from my standpoint everyone acquitted themselves admirably. The winner by a long shot -- and this came as no surprise to any of us -- was Danielle with her Queeny Brass fabric. Longtime followers of the Spoonflower saga may remember that not only was Danielle was the first non-familial employee to join Spoonflower but she did so, at the very beginning, as a volunteer back before we had money to pay people. We're lucky to have her. Not only will Danielle's lovely design soon adorn our staff sofa, but we'll have a special something for her at the staff meeting this week (shhh!).
