Marbled Fabric Giveaway, and a New Sponsor! Welcome Contemporary Cloth!

Today I am excited to be welcoming another new sponsor! Welcome Sondra from Contemporary Cloth!

After struggling to find a place to buy the best bold modern fabrics, Sondra opened her own online store in 2001. Alexander Henry's bold prints were always Sondra's favorites for making clothes, shirts for her husband, home dec items, etc. Her absolute favorites are Marimekko she first saw them in the 60's in NYC and Boston, and just fell in love!

What sets Contemporary Cloth apart from others, you might ask? Contemporary Cloth sells unique marbled fabrics, hand-dyed screen printed designs, and mixed media hand painted/screen printed papers from multiple Fiber Artists.
