Free Swatch Day Starts At Midnight, New Organic Knit + Bamboo-Cotton Poplin

AUG 19, 2009 updated May 30, 2016

Free Swatch Day: Thursday, August 20th. Starting
at midnight tonight and lasting through 11:59 pm on Thursday (EST), you
can get up to two free, printed swatches.  We're taking Free Swatch Day as an opportunity to raise
money for Heifer International, an organization that provides  livestock, training and services to small-scale farmers and communities worldwide.
Have fun. This is a great opportunity for folks new to Spoonflower to
give us a try, so please help us spread the word! We've posted all the
Free Swatch Day details HERE.
