Announcing the Needlepoint Design Challenge Winners

JAN 19, 2017
Embroidered Flowers by Elena Naylor

Not just for “grannies” and Victorian-era ladies anymore, needlepoint has made a comeback in recent years (even Taylor Swift needlepoints!) — and we’re so glad it has! For National Hobby Month, we wanted to spend some time paying homage to one of our favorite past times, needlepoint with a design challenge. Congratulations to Elena Naylor with her gorgeous Embroidered Flowers design. Elena will receive $200 in Spoonflower credit.  The 2nd place winner, Amy of Pennycandy will receive $100 in Spoondollars, and the 3rd place winner C-hawk studios will receive $50 in Spoondollars. The rest of the top 10 winners will receive $20 in Spoonflower credit. The top 25 popularly voted designs (provided the designers are already verified sellers) will be automatically made available for sale in the Marketplace where they will receive 10% commission on every sale — no $5.00 swatch required. Shop the entire the winners here!
