The Fabric Of the Week contest theme this week is jokers & fools, which has a long and illustrious tradition as an artistic subject. Believe it or not, the person who wrote to suggest that we make fools the subject of a fabric design contest is actually theofficial jester of the city of Milwaukee. Who knew that there were official fools! [Please commence sardonic commentary here.] Of course the real fools' contest this month will, arguably, be the Spoonflower staff design contest… coming up next week!

  • Glad you noticed that, Victoria! There are many clowns in the contest. Maybe the voting page should include the information that designers are given pertaining to the theme and requirements of each contest.
    Yes, the origin of the theme suggestion is interesting reading, but the contest requirements are more important to me as a contestant.

  • I just noticed that you don’t mention clowns in the post; and they were included in the original theme for this contest. Clowns aren’t really the same thing as fools and jesters, or jokers; so some people might feel that entries depicting clowns are off theme.
