Handmade fabric items, such as quilts, clothes, pillows, dolls, handbags and framed art, become priceless family heirlooms and pieces of unique history. Crafters can make designs even more personal by ordering custom fabrics from Spoonflower, Mebane, N.C.
Stephen Fraser, an Internet marketing consultant, founded the company when wife Kim Fraser said, “You know what would be really cool? If I could print my own fabric.” A business start-up was born, and Spoonflower now has 15,000 crafters signed up to use the Web site and has shipped custom fabrics all over the world. Fabric creations are $18 per yard with no minimum purchase, printed on quilting-weight, high-quality cotton from Moda™ Fabrics, Dallas, Texas. For more information, visit www.spoonflower.com.
