About This Class

Tea towel calendars designed with your own art make a wonderful addition to your shop, whether you're selling online or in person or both! They also make great gifts for friends and family. 

In this class I'll show you how to design a calendar with your art that you can use to create fabric tea towels (or print on paper if that's your preference).

We'll create templates for each possible month arrangement that you can use again and again for any year and any type of calendar. Then I'll show you how to make a simple calendar design using those templates and give you suggestions of different layouts to help inspire you in your own designs.

Finally, I'll show how to upload your design to Spoonflower, the company I use to print and sell my fabric and tea towels and how to enter your design in their annual Tea Towel Calendar Design Contest.
