Thank You Madison & Blog Followers!

Last week, another high school student spent some time doing hands-on work experience in our studio.

Madison was such delightful company and very eager to learn as much as possible during her short stay. On her last day, I let her choose some screens to play with.

She printed two of my old t-shirt designs. Pretty good, hey?

And chances are that if you buy one of our white Butterfly tea-towels, it was also printed by Madison. You can have a job with Thea & Sami anytime Madison!


And yes, I still have to post images from our printing workshop last Saturday. That will have to wait until tomorrow as I really should keep working on my new fabric designs but I did want to post the Blog Giveaway I promised you. This is in celebration of 500 wonderful blog followers. Yay!

The prize is a one-of-a-kind "Marguerite" linen tea-towel and a set of Marguerite linen placemats, all hand-printed in red.

To be in the running, simply leave a comment on this post. It can be feedback on my blog, website, products or just to say hello! As this giveaway is a thank you to my blog followers, it's only fair that you are one.

* Please make sure that I have a way of contacting you so leave an email address if you don't have a blog.

The winner will be randomly selected on Sunday,19th December (Aussie date). Yes, yes, I will ship anywhere. Now go away as I must get back to work.


This giveaway has now closed. Thank you to all who commented. The winner was announced here.

Last week a friend asked me about setting up a blog for her creative business, and I showed her yours as the best example of how to make a business blog engaging. Always a great read!

What a wonderful blog you have! I loved the headbands post. I may try something out. I have long thick hair and a lot of spare fabric that needs a new life. This is a project worth trying that requires little time. Thank you.

Συγχαρητήρια και καλές γιορτές!
