spoonflower

Have you heard of Spoonflower? I hadn't until a few months ago. For anyone else in my boat, here's what it's all about. They're a US-based marketplace for independent designers to create and sell their own fabric. It seems very straightforward: designs are uploaded to their system, the customer selects the design they want and the fabric on which they want it printed. You don't have to be a graphic designer or textile artist to be a seller, either; you can create your own, if you like. As the customer, you visit a designer's shop and either browse the range of designs (I found C'est La Viv's fabrics this way) or search for what you want (how I found Star Wars fabric to make a custom Good Will Bunting® design for two little boys' themed birthday party). How lovely that Jenny Wiksten's fabric designs are also on offer.

Hi Heidi! Yes it's an amazing fabric source - I ordered some small pieces and their fabric swatches out of sheer curiosity - a great enterprise!
