Wow...nice to meet the person that saved the day for me back a few months ago. I was having a contest entry dilemma and you fixed it for me! So nice to see the face of the person that made my day. I'm sure I speak for many others...we appreciate all that you do.

Stephanie, it is so nice to meet you. I'm behind on reading the SF blog but finally happy to know one more SF staffer. I can't wait to see what other improvements you have up your sleeve....and speaking of sleeves...love the blouse!

This is what I love about Spoonflower...great blogs, info, ideas, suggestions, pictures, community etc. etc. The info about taking pictures is especially helpful for us beginners. Yes...we must iron before taking a picture. And I love the Camera Bag... Thank you Berene, Kim and Spoonflower.

Can't wait to see the end result. I'm hoping to find time to make a set of curtain valances for my screen porch out of a flannel backed vinyl tablecloth. (Sorry, but I don't need SF fabric for this project). If I don’t find the time it’s only because I’m working on my next Spoonflower design! Enjoy the day...

Welcome to Spoonflower Beth. I'm a relatively new SF community member and love Spoonflower from afar! (well not that far...Kinston in eastern NC). I love that we are beginning to become familiar with Spoonflower employees. But a warning to Kim...enjoy her while you can. I can see her designing and sewing for the movie industry one day!

Kim, Happy days to you as blogger (of course along with owner, mother, wife, friend, neighbor etc. etc.). I don’t know how you do it all. You helped me once when I wanted to make sure that I was saving my design correctly to enter a contest. I was surprised that YOU answered my question (being the owner and all) and it was on the weekend! Which really helped since my day job seems to always interfere with my SF time.  In less than a year after discovering SF, I taught myself GIMP, now learning InkScape, learned how to create interesting repeat designs, figured out flickr and now typepad, actually sold a few designs!, have met incredible people including some across the globe, discovered other really neat websites, decided to learn watercolor painting and all at the tender age of “almost 60” and because of Spoonflower!! I now walk around seeing colors, shapes and designs in everything. My husband and biggest fan is not surprised with I have to stop and take a cell phone picture of something that might inspire a new design. And I’m not sure where I’m going with all of this since I’m not a career designer or seamstress. All I know is that I’m having the best time ever and visit your site every day to get my SP fix. One final note about how I found you guys…. I was on the Better Homes and Garden site getting ideas to make curtains. I saw a set made from the most interesting fabric and a link to the NC Art video. I watched the video and had to back it up a few times to catch where Stephen was saying you were located…Did he really say Durham NC! And that was the beginning of my new found addiction that has gotten me back to what I love to do---create! So thanks and greetings from Eastern NC. Laura aka minniemeatdaydreamstudio
