For those of you asking for further clarification on exactly which holidays were being referenced in yesterday’s post calling for "holiday-themed" designs I have asked for clarification from our contact person at Taunton Press and have so far received none.  Lest I forget completely during the packing of 3 girl children for a beach trip tomorrow, I just wanted to say I had tried to do something to get more information for you.  I think it’s safe to assume that the winter holidays are what they’re asking for–Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah.  With–let’s be honest here–probably a heavy emphasis on Christmas.  I’ll keep y’all posted if I hear otherwise from the CraftStylish powers that be.

In other news, Stephen and I were up ’til 1:00 a.m. last night, packing up your many, many orders for shipment today.  (You people have been busy doing some fabric designing, huh?)  We would’ve been up way later if we had not also had the help of our mailing guru friend, Paul.  Thanks so much, Paul!  Truly, you rock!

Lastly, but not leastly, I just wanted to point out some very inspiring craftiness going on.  You may have seen this in our Flickr pool but just in case you haven’t, check out Rebecca’s Miss Sunshine doll.Miss_sunshine
  I’ve seen a few large scale figure designs coming through and wondered if they were destined for stuffing.  Please let us know if you, too, have any projects underway (or completed!) using Spoonflower fabric.  We start to get kinda fond of your printed designs, you see, and it’s nice to know how they fare after they leave us!

  • Oh, good! Thanks for the insider info there! I’m sure that’s what they must mean. This does seem to be the time of year when winter holiday fabrics seem to be featured in shops, for those sewers who are way more organized than I am and get started on making their presents early!

  • “Holiday” in the garment industry is typically the winter season in general… not fall or back to school- that’s different. It can be literally Christmas or Hanukkah (very rarely), but generally we keep it “generic winter themes” ie snowmen, skiing, snowflakes, presents, evergreens, polar bears, penguins, etc. Maybe this is what they mean?
