Overview

We’re getting a jump-start on the holidays with a month of design challenges highlighting your go-to gift of the season, tea towels! Whether you’re doing the hemming yourself or leaving it to the experts over at Roostery, the season wouldn’t be complete without a few new tea towels added to your kitchen collection. Like last year’s challenge, all designs made available for sale in the four tea towel challenges will also automatically be previewed on Roostery’s Special Edition Spoonflower Tea Towel.

Prizes

  • 1 first place winner each week will receive a $200 Roostery credit, a $200 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value).
  • The 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value).
  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value)
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value).
  • The top 25 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.
