The Canadian Pattern Designer Blog tour is coming!!

I’m super excited! A few months ago I contacted a bunch of Canadian pattern designers and asked if they would like to take part in a blog tour. To my amazement many replied back with a yes!

I will be sharing more details next week, but for now here’s a little sneak peek about who will be taking part:
