This past Saturday, over 30 community members and Spoonflower employees spent the afternoon sewing RARE Bears for one-of-a-kind kids supported by RARE Science Inc., a non-profit research organization accelerating cures for rare childhood diseases. On this very special afternoon, quilt guilds, sewing groups, and crafty individuals stitched up bears all over the country to Spring into Action. From California to here in Durham, North Carolina, it was RARE Bear mania!

Have a crafty St. Patty's Day!
Politics may be dividing our nation at the moment, but the USA can firmly stand united behind the color blue as our favorite choice for home décor! Spoonflower crunched the data from nearly 200,000 purchases of custom fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap over a two-year period and organized them under 15 color categories. We then weighed the scores to measure the popularity for each color by city and state. While our flag may be red white and blue, our homes definitely reflect a country of blue, gray and black!
From New Mexico all the way to Washington D.C., blue rang true for 82% of the country
Raining Linen by Holli Zollinger is one of the most popular blue designs for home decor projects in the Spoonflower Marketplace.
Based on data from 200,000 purchases.

Time for a Spoonflower status update: Berlin edition! If you've been curious about how things are going at the new Berlin office and want to stay in the know, read on as Spoonflower crew member Allie shares an update on the new space. Meet some new German team members, and behold the early stages of what will soon be a bustling factory cranking out custom-printed fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap for our European friends.
This spring, we are thrilled to announce that Spoonflower will be hosting a RARE Bear sew-in at the Greenhouse to support RARE Science! RARE Science is a national non-profit that helps find cures for kids with rare diseases. The RARE Bear program is a grassroots community-driven outreach initiative for kids with rare disease. Community volunteers create one-of-a-kind teddy bears for one-of-a-kind “rare kids." We couldn't be more excited to be joining the RARE Bear army!
When choosing a new sewing project or simply packing your lunch for work, do you ever stop and think about the impact you’re making on the environment? Spoonflower strives to ensure that our fabrics are good for you and good for the earth, and over the past year, we put lots of new efforts into making our workplace event more sustainable. With January coming to an end, we look back on what we've accomplished through our employee-led sustainability committee as we look forward to advancing our mission to lessen our environmental impact in the new year.
Blankets for Good
Earlier this year, Spoonflower team member Meredith showcased one of Spoonflower’s newest employee crafted initiatives: Blankets for Good. This quarterly employee sew-in uses returned marketplace fabric (don't worry, we will never use your private fabrics!) to make blankets for those in need. In 2015, we sewed over 70 blankets, preventing over 140 yards of remnant fabric going to a landfill. That’s enough to cover almost half of the eiffel tower!
