I am now officially a student again! I have just started BA(Hons) Degree in Textiles with the OCA!
I am so excited about starting this journey, it has been one I have been waiting to take since I decided not to go to university when I was 18.
I have never regretted not going at that time as I have achieved so many other things in my life including running my own business, but the main achievement will always be my now 15 year old daughter who is so wonderful I would never be without her. I am now 37 and at last have the chance to follow my dream of academic fulfillment so here goes.
I am spending this week getting everything together so I can make a start on the first project at the weekend – wish me luck!

Out and about at Blackmoor monthly market

I will be attending the Blackmoor monthly market, held on the 1st Sunday of the month from August onwards. I will be selling some of my textile pieces at the fair and taking along some of the July Textiles range of craft supplies for you to buy. I will also be demonstrating a craft technique each month.

The Blackmoor Village Hall, originally the school, was designed 1872 by Alfred Waterhouse (architect of the Natural History Museum in London) as part of a Victorian estate village. The Village Hall is next to St Matthew's Church in the centre of the village. The village is now a conservation area located within the South Down National Park. http://www.blackmoorvillagehall.btck.co.uk/News
