  1. How do I make sure I am enrolled in the Fabric Design Series? I am subscribed to Creativebug and have been watching the classes from the beginning. Is there anything else I have to do in order to make sure I am enrolled in order to enter the contest?

    1. Hi Emily. If you subscribe to Creativebug and you’re watching the videos, you’re in the course! If you want to participate in the contest, share pics of your work on Instagram, use #fabricdesign and #creativebug and you’ll be entered in the contest.

  2. Sorry, I’m probably being a bit silly, but are you saying that we have to have an Instagram account in order to enter the competition Alexi?

    1. Hi Joanne – yes, that’s true. We’re running it entirely on Instagram. But! You can also enter Spoonflower’s Design Challenge for the course, no Instagram required. http://blog.spoonflower.com/2015/03/creativebug-design-challenge.html

  3. Does it make a difference if we enter on the Spoonflower website, rather than Instagram?

    1. Hi Courtney – they are actually two different contests. In the Creativebug Instagram contest, you can share pics of your work – and use #fabricdesign and #creativebug – to possibly win a $100 Spoonflower gift card. For Spoonflower’s Design Challenge to win some of these larger prizes, you WILL have to submit through their site. Good luck!

  4. Is there a theme to this contest? Or can you enter anything you’ve designed?

    1. Hi Virginia – you can absolutely enter any design! But you do have to take the Creativebug series in order to be eligible.
