Are You Crazy for Custom Design?


For those of you who have searched and searched and just can’t find the exact fabric to reupholster Grandma’s wing chair or locate the kitchiest of designs for your cottage kitchen – search no more. Go to Spoonflower, upload your own designs and within weeks receive your custom bolt of fabric to go crazy with! Your designs can be private or you can share them with others to purchase for their personal use.

Think you have a winning design? Test your designs in the Spoonflower Weekly Fabric Design contest or vote for your favorite entry.

As a fan of American Artisans I am also happy to report Spoonflower is located in North Carolina – no worries for extra fees at customs! There are so few, if any fabric and upholstery mills still alive and well in the U.S. it is wonderful to see a service catering to individuals and celebrating creative expression. Have fun and keep designing!
