Announcing Our Flights of Fancy Contest Winner!

NOV 22, 2012


Happy Thanksgiving to all our peeps in the US! The theme of our contest this week was
Flights Of Fancy, which produced both the expected — lots of bird
fabrics, for example — but also the unexpected: the winner, Roz
Robinson, based her design on the wistful flight of dandelion seeds.
Designers were also asked to restrict their use of color to a particular
palette. Roz's winning fabric will appear in a photo on the cover of an
upcoming issue of the UK craft magazine Mollie Makes. Congratulations to all who participated!
