Three chances to win this week! Leave a comment, visit and LIKE our Facebook page, and subscribe to our Newsletter (which will be coming out soon with a detailed look at our NEW collections).

Get in on all the fun with Henry Glass fabrics!

This week's giveaway is from a relatively new designer to Henry Glass, Nidhi Wadhwa of Blue Fish Designs. Nidhi's background is the result of grit, talent and hard work. She started as a studio for greeting cards and children's books, but has now diversified over the last 15 years to many different design areas where her illustrations are loved. We are fortunate to have her as a Henry Glass fabrics designer with these other collections too: Frogland Friends, and Penguin Parade.
