First up is Meg of Sew Liberated. It's very special for me to have Meg on the tour. I came across Meg's blog via her book, Sew Liberated,  I found at JoAnns years ago. I had two children under the age of five and I was pregnant with the third. I was also working full time and life was just hectic. That evening I found solace in her book. I thought the skirt was super cool and every single page was filled with simple and beautiful creations. I found her blog right away and fell in love. There was a certain aura of peace about it regardless of the circumstances. But then life became too busy and I just didn't' have the time to keep up with all the blogs I loved. So when I discovered Meg on Instagram, I promptly went through her feed and commented on one of the pictures. To my surprise, not only she responded, but she mentioned my Eleena pattern. What, she knew who I was?! That was such a cool moment. It was like your celebrity crush calling you by your first name. I was totally geeked out. I am so happy she could join the tour! You've got to go to her blog! The Eleena dress is just awesome!

Next up is Soso of Moineau & Petit Pois. Everything Soso makes is super cool. She just nails the clean lines, no fuss but totally cool look. Soso tested for me before and made the Cutest Wild&Free lounge pants and several awesome Ania tunics. She made another Ania tunic for the tour and I adore that print. So so awesome! Go to her blog for more!

The two super talented sisters behind Frances Susanne blog probably don't need an introduction. Their blog was also among the first blogs I ever followed. It's just full of awesomeness. Not only they are masters at sewing, they also do gorgeous embroidery and smocking work. They put so much thought and creative energy into their projects. I love the Antalya dress they made, so so good. The two fabrics are perfection together! Go here to see more!

Next is Emi of Just Add Fabric. I love Emi and everything she does. She has become such a good friend. If you know Emi, you know how sweet and supportive she is. I really appreciate all the time and effort she spent to help me out. This tour would have not happened without Emi's involvement. Emi also happens to be extremely intelligent and educated (Harvard, anyone?). She also happens to have great aesthetics. Everything she makes has that relaxed but super cool and urban Japanese vibe. I love it! Check out her take on the Mulberry tunic on her blog.

Courtney of Sweeter Than Cupcakes began blogging approximately at the same time I did and I have been following and admiring her creations since. She makes the sweetest things for her daughters. Everything she makes is just so pretty and stylish. The outfits she made for the tour are gorgeous. Hop over to her blog to see more.

Rachel of Stitched Together is an amazing person. She has also became a good friend this year, and I am really grateful I got to know her. She is so cool! Everything she does is top notch and stunning, from her makes to photography. She is constantly pushing herself to grow and improve, it's really inspiring! Visit her post here to see more of the gorgeous Polina dress she made!
