This past October, with the help of Marbles Kids Museum, Spoonflower got in the Halloween spirit at the annual Kooky Spooky Halloween party. Just two months later, Marbles was getting into the holiday spirit transforming the museum from a haunted mansion into a winter wonderland for Evening with Elves. Today, the Marbles team visits the blog to give you a closer look inside the transformation and show how they used Spoonflower’s Performance Pique and Fleece to make it all happen.
As we get closer and closer to the end of the year we’re excited to think about all the progress we’ve made in our Berlin office. It’s hard to believe it’s already been over a year since we started the process of opening a factory in Germany. Today, Spoonflower DE team member Allie stops by the blog as we look back at a few of our most exciting happenings and look forward to what’s to come!
It’s that time of year again, creative friends. Make sure to place your fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap orders in time to make and wrap all those thoughtful handmade gifts you have in store for loved ones this year! The dates shown below represent the order deadlines. If you place an order beyond the dates specified below, we cannot guarantee that it will be delivered before Hanukkah (Saturday, December 24th) or Christmas (Sunday, December 25th).
After reading last month's Spoonflower Handbook Master Class recap by instructor Becka Rahn, were you itching to road trip to the Spoonflower HQ? If the answer is yes, you're in luck! We are excited to announce registration is now open for the summer session of the Spoonflower Handbook Master Class on August 26-28. This workshop will be an introduction to using Photoshop for fabric design, with a specific focus on using layers and seamless textures to add depth to your designs.

On my first day working at Spoonflower, I learned our core values of creativity, customer focus, authenticity, resourcefulness, fun, and trust. These values are exemplified in daily office life. When you experience the unique, warm atmosphere throughout the office and operations floor it is not hard to understand why The Triangle Business Journal voted Spoonflower one of its 50 Best Places to Work in 2015.
As Spoonflower has grown from two families working together in Mebane to over 170 employees working in both North Carolina and Berlin, we have wanted to give back and help serve our local community in a more meaningful way. With this goal in mind, we established our Volunteerism Committee in December of 2015. So far, the committee has found wonderful projects for Spoonflower to support including adopting a family for Christmas, donating children’s books to Book Harvest, and sponsoring JUST TRYAN IT, which provides assistance to the families of children with cancer. Beyond these wonderful organizations, Spoonflower also offers its employees paid time off specifically designated for volunteering with any nonprofit of their choice.
