Meet our Creative Team!

We are so excited to share a little about each of the designers for our brand new July-December 2018 Creative Team. The talented mix of women hail from all over the world and a couple come from our subscriber base. (We were WOW'ed by all of the super talented ladies - many from our subscriber base - who applied for the team this time around. You made our job very hard and narrowing the field down to these designers was one of those fun things/hard things as we easily wanted to make the team even bigger to include so many more.)

The projects from these creatives will begin appearing on our blog, Facebook fan page and on social media on July 1st (if you haven't already seen some of their sneaks!) Our July "Skyland" kits reveal at midnight PST on June 30 (or July 1, as the case may be).

We welcome you to meet the team!
