Field Trip to...Spoonflower!

Yes I got to go behind the scenes at Spoonflower!  For those of you who don't know Spoonflower is a fabric printing company.  You can create a design and have it printed on fabric!  I have used to print labels that even had photos on them.  It is also where you can buy fabric others have designed....people you don't know... and people like Heather Ross!  BTW the fabric is printed on huge injet printers you will see in the pictures.

So join me as we take a photo tour with the owner of this wonderfully innovative company.

When you walk in the door...examples of fabric everywhere.

Misters keep the humidity at the right level for fabric printing...machines have names
cutting and order sorting
orders all over the world...packing to ship
printing sits on top of fabric...dark colors may flake a little

keep dreaming...Colleen

I think that would be so fun to design my own fabric, but the cost makes it tough to print a lot. Would be fun to do it and share with friends.
