I wanted you all to know that our sponsored student Joanne, passed her 'A' level Textiles top of her class at St Peter's Collegiate school, with a grade B. She has accepted her first choice offer of a Fashion/Textiles Degree at Derby University and will begin her course this September.
I am sure you will join with me to wish Joanne well and hopefully she will keep us informed of her progress and when she is free will pop in to the odd lecture or workshop.

All of us explored the brilliant kantha. Some had done none before and some were experienced but we all found something new, taking ideas from each other.
