Aurifil: Shock, Squeal, Awe, Honored

So I can finally spill the beans on this!

When Pat Sloan contacted me about being a part of the Aurifil Design Team I was shocked.  With all the talent out there, I wondered why me?  Then in the quiet of my studio I squealed.  🙂  When I found out the other members of the team, I was in awe.  Oh my goodness, look at all of these wonderful women from around the world.  That is when things came crystal clear at how truly honored I feel to be apart of the group.

Below is a copy of the announcement from Aurifil’s blog:  I hope you will follow along on the creative journey 2016 is going to bring!
