Inside The Studio: Wplus9 Design Team

As you know, we have had the same wonderful design team for many years. Several of these talented ladies have been with me since day 1.

I remember all too well sending each email.

I remember being afraid that they would say "thanks, but no thanks". To my delight, they accepted, and have continued to delight me ever since with their incredible designs.

I did not realize what a special place each of these ladies would carve into my life - my history. And I can not thank them enough for all of their hard work, creative genius and support!

But it is time for these ladies to pass the reins over to a new group of talented ladies. They have some big shoes to fill, but I believe they are up to the task!

I am pleased to introduce the 2014 Wplus9 Designers. Each of these ladies are avid supporters of Wplus9 and I am sure that you will recognize them!

I will have more on each of these ladies individually in the coming weeks to help you get to know them better. For now, be sure to check out their blogs if you haven't already:

I hope you will join me in saying "thank you" to Hannah, Jinny, Kerrianne, Lea, Sarah and Savitri for providing us with so much creative inspiration over the last several years. This is not farewell, because I will continue to follow each of them, as I hope that you will.

And a great big "welcome" to Chupa, Joni, Kara, and Maureen. I can not wait to see what is to come from this amazing group of crafters!
