Announcing the top 10 fabrics from the Urban Sightings Contest

MAR 29, 2012 updated May 30, 2016
The top ten fabrics from this week's contest are headed for an exhibit at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, where jurors will select their favorite for a grand prize. The people's choice in our voting was Canadian designer Cynthia Frenette's "Take the Detour Route," but all of the top ten offer terrific spins on the contest theme, which centered on the transformation of an urban neighborhood using selected photos as inspiration.
