Free Swatch Day 2011

Those of you who receive our weekly email know this already, but we have postponed Free Swatch Day until next Thursday, August 20. We're very sorry! Here's what we wrote:

Last week we told you that Thursday, August 13, would be our first Free Swatch Day. With profound apologies, we've decided to postpone Free Swatch Day until Thursday, August 20. As you may remember, we plan to announce two new fabrics and really want to make Free Swatch Day your chance to try them out. The hitch is that when we make the announcement we expect to need a LOT of the new fabric on hand, but we have only a little in the shop at the moment. Sorry for the delay!

As I wrote last week, we'll be using Free Swatch Day as an excuse to raise money for a nifty organization called Heifer International that provides livestock, training and services to small farmers and communities around the world. When you use your free swatch promotion, you'll have the option to add a donation to your Spoonflower shopping cart. We'll report on the money raised on our Twitter feed during the day.

  • Anu,
    I’ll post details on the blog tomorrow or Wednesday, but Free Swatch Day
    will run from midnight, EST, on Wednesday night to midnight on Thursday.
    You’ll be able to order two free swatches with no limitations using a
    promotional code during checkout that we’ll publish on the page outlining
    all the rules. During checkout we will also ask you for — although you are
    in no way obligated to make — a donation to
    We’ll post links on FB, Twitter, the blog and in the email. I’m hoping that
    will get the word out reasonably well.

  • for those of us who do rss and don’t get the weekly emails, what’s the story with free swatch day? i want to be prepared for thursday!
