Spoonflower - My HQ Visit.

Spoonflower - Make your drawings/photo's/collages into Fabric and now wallpaper and wall decals too!

For those of you who haven't yet discovered the amazing world of Spoonflower then here is a treat for you.... My fabulous friend Kit told me I should check it out and I am so glad I did!

They were the first company to make it possible for individuals to create, print and sell their own fabrics. It is very simple to use and you don't have to be a tech head to understand how it works [ which helps me alot!] It puts the world of home decoration at your fingertips and makes it possible to customise your homewares and now even your walls! Pretty awesome huh.

Imagine your photos, collages and drawing on fabric and wallpaper, it really is a bit of a dream for me and I am currently drawing like crazy and cant wait to see my designs on fabric and wallpaper! As usual I have more ideas than time or patience but I will get there...

So I was lucky [ randomly] to go to their HQ in Durham in North Carolina when I was overseas in August. My sister in law lives down the road in Raleigh so we went for a road trip one day and the lovely team showed me around! The offices were lovely, with artworks everywhere and fun colourful projects adorning the space.

It was great, I saw it all in action from the printers to the drying and the packing. It was quiet amazing watching blank fabric being printed on with so many unique designs, so clever....

Some photos they very kindly let me take:












I would recommend checking out the website and blog. Very awesome stuff.

Enjoy!
