After many weeks of frenetic activity around the Spoonflower office, things are relatively quiet in the aftermath of Christmas. A number of folks are on vacation; a few more are sick. We're still printing and cutting fabric, the mail trucks are still arriving, but for the first time in a while people are taking a few minutes to chat with one another instead of just hurrying on to the next thing with their chins tucked to their chests. What an amazing year it's been here at Spoonflower. Not a day goes by that I don't feel grateful for the good will and trust of our customers and community, and also for the dedication and creativity of the team of people who work here. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who are reading this.
For the final giveaway of 2012, we've got a copy of a book of modern quilts collected from some of our favorite crafty people called, "Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe." We'll also give the winner a fat quarter bundle that includes eight Spoonflower fabrics of her or his choice. The contest will close for entries on Wednesday morning, January 2, 2013, at 8am EST, and — in a departure from previous giveaways — you're eligible to enter once each day! Please note that simply commenting is not a means of entry (sadly), and please accept our apologies that the entry form requires a birth date. We would edit that out if we could, but it's just part of the software service we're using to run the contest.
