Those of you who have followed the Spoonflower fabric-of-the-week contests for even a few months probably don't need an introduction to prolific designer Samarra Khaja, aka Sammyk. Samarra has a light-hearted design style coupled with a great sense of both humor and color, and she's won our contests multiple times. She's also gone pro recently, with two new fabric collections debuting with Timeless Treasures (and more in the works). Samarra graciously agreed to answer some questions about her new collections during this busy Thanksgiving week. Read on for more about her new work and a chance at a giveaway!
