Over the 10 years Spoonflower has been in business, our focus has always been about empowering creative individuals around the world by connecting artists, designers and creators through our unique and growing platform.

So what does that mean for the future of apparel at Spoonflower?
While we are currently hitting the pause button on custom cut-and-sew apparel at Sprout, Spoonflower will continue to be passionate about indie fabric designs and sewing patterns. We will continue to serve our Spoonflower community with apparel fabrics to power your creativity and we hope to inspire you through projects like our recent collaboration with Indiesew and The Spoonflower Quick-Sew Project Book.
Fostering creativity and connecting with sewists around the world has and always will be an important part of our community and we hope that you will continue to join us on this exciting adventure. For additional details about the closing of Sprout Patterns, please see our FAQs.
