We are so thrilled to share that team with you today and cannot wait to work with this amazing group of quilters, sewists, and makers!

  1. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to the wonderful assortment of energies and creative visions .. so delighted that there are some men on the team also .. we need more male role models in the fabric arts so that young boys growing up can see that making with fabric is one more option for creativity for them …

  2. I am so excited to be back for another year! Congrats to all of my fellow artisans, and thank you so much to the Aurifil team for the opportunity!
