Reinvention Book and Fabric Giveaway
We've had a wonderful book sitting on our shelves for a little while now at the Spoonflower office, Maya Donenfeld's "Reinvention: Sewing With Rescued Materials." With chapters organized by the type of material you might be repurposing -- linen, burlap, t-shirt jersey, wool, denim, Tyvek mailers, vintage textiles -- this book isn't exactly in keeping with Spoonflower's purpose of printing new fabrics. But the book is so lovely and so inspiring to us in our personal sewing projects--and January is our month to revamp and refresh--that we couldn't resist offering it up to you for giveaway today. To sweeten the deal, we'll also throw in three yards of the Spoonflower fabric of your choice. Give the new fabric its first purpose, then you can use the book to give your fabric another life down the road. Follow the link below to enter our drawing for this giveaway. Entries close next Tuesday, 1/29 at 10pm EST and we'll announce the winner on January 30th. Good luck to you all!

Win a copy of "Reinvention: Sewing With Rescued Materials," by Maya Donenfeld, along with three yards of the Spoonflower fabric of your choice. In the book, award-winning blogger Maya Donenfeld offers a guide to working with her favorite recycled materials. You’ll find linen, burlap, wool and more with details on their history, deconstruction techniques, sewing tips, and information about their environmental impact.
Reinventing everyday materials into extraordinary items of beauty and utility for the modern home and family will excite new and experienced sewers alike. To add an element of personalization, Maya draws on her experience leading print workshops to share easy methods for transforming gently-used fabric with paint and ink. Stenciling templates and thorough instructions are provided, as well as encouragement to invent your own designs. Stories, a favorite recipe, and nature activity are tucked between and around the projects to offer the reader an invitation to slow down, and create with intention.
