Our Team

It takes a village of amazing people to make Briar Hill what it has become, and we are so thankful for all the collaborators and helpers who were part of our creative process, by testing our patterns, sewing samples or quilting.

Here's our list of projects and the friends who helped us brig them to life.  Also, below I've listed the business names of those who have collaborated with us, Caverly and Julia.
