We’re really feeling the holiday spirit around here, so we decided that for 8 days in December 2016, we’d give Santa Claus a break and give away a few things to all of you! This giveaway was open worldwide beginning at 9:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday, Dec. 13, through Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 8:59 a.m. EST. A new prize draw (just one winner per day, winners may not win twice) was revealed each morning at 9:00 a.m. EST and was available for 24 hours. Congrats to all of our winners below on winning some of the hottest craft supplies of 2016!

Well, we've now wrapped up the 12 Days of Giveaways, and we're about ready to nestle all snug in our beds for the next week or so. Voting is still open today for our sweets contest, and we'll still send out the email to launch the snowflake fabric design contest tomorrow, but then we're going to lie pretty low for the week of Christmas. We might be able to squeeze in a giveaway the day after Christmas, and a blog post or two, but we might also be too full of food to drag ourselves anywhere near a computer. The next contest to open for voting will be the Year of the Snake, with voting beginning on January 3, 2013.
We're very pleased to announce the winner of our final giveaway — a one-year subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud service — is Marji Martin. Congratulations to Marji and all of the other winners from the giveaways, but we also want to thank all of you who participated, not just in the giveaways, but in all our contests and promotions throughout 2012. Thank you for being part of the Spoonflower community, and for the energy and creativity you've shared with us through your participation. We are so lucky to have you all as customers! We wish you peace and joy over this holiday season.

Day two of the 12 Days of Giveaways is an exciting one for us quilters in the office. We find quilting inspiration all over the place–on the web, from each other, at our local fabric shops, and of course, whenever we look over and see what’s coming off our own printers. But sometimes it’s nice to have concentrated inspiration right at your fingertips between the covers of a good quilting book. That’s why today we’re giving away a small library of modern quilting books today to provide you with plenty of fresh ideas for your quilts in 2013. Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen, Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman, and Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal are sure to get your creative synapses firing!
Yesterday's winners (from our Day 1 giveaway) were Audrey Clayton, Yuki McNeil and Christa McMillen. We'll be sending them emails shortly!
Enter this giveaway between now and 8:00 am EST tomorrow morning for a chance to win these lovely books. Good luck to you all, and do check back with us tomorrow for day three’s giveaway and for the announcement of the modern quilting library winner!

This beautifully crafted handbook features vintage-inspired patterns with simple and elegant details. Each of the book's five patterns (like the sweetly named Meringue skirt, and Pastille dress) is figured as a project, and offers fine fit and finishing techniques tailored to each garment.
The winner of today's giveaway also receives three cotton silk yards in Sarai's Spoonflower fabric design, Aqua Starburst. Featured below in the Jasmine blouse available on Colette Patterns, the print is also a lovely fit for the handbook's flutter-sleeved Taffy Blouse.
