New for Spring: Cotton Lawn Ultra!
It had to happen sooner or later, right? But with 193 entries in our Imaginary Animals Fabric Of the Week competition it still seems surprising that we have two designs in an exact tie for first place. Fine Feathered Friends by kayajoy and Fantanimals by melisza, two terrific fabrics by designers who have each won one previous contest, received exactly the same number of votes. Congratulations to the designers --Tamara Serrao of Montreal and Melissa Wang of Singapore -- both of whom now have $100 in Spoondollars to spend on lovely fabric. Well done!
