Esther wrote: One suggestion might be to do a section on how to date vintage textiles- specific advice about what to look for, what patterns were popular at what time, etc.

I’m throwing a barnyard animals themed baby shower, and it’s been really difficult finding fabrics that were the right colors (bright red and blues) with the westerny theme, so I’d love to see more of that. And also, I keep putting off working with slinky fabrics because I’m terrified and don’t know how to use them or what to use them for, so any tips and ideas on that would be awesome.
5. $60 gift certificate from the Fabric Square Shop

And for the European drawing for the 50€ gift certificate from Volksfaden …
Natasha wrote: Congratulations! I definitely would like to see more on suppliers in Europe, as well as independent fabric designers in Europe. Oh and also how to get started printing your own fabrics.
Congratulations to all the winners! I hope you’ll show us what you get and make with your booty. I have already emailed everyone; if they don’t get through I hope they’ll check in and contact me. (It’s hard to write such an email … I envisioned the spam filters sending up their little flags at every exclamation!)
