Introduction I have been involved in Crafting in one way or another for over 30 years now. Ever since my Mum sat me down and taught me how to Cook, Sew and Knit. Skills i have kept up with all my life. Crafting has played a big part in my life both as a student and as a teacher. Education wise i have a BA Hons in Design and BA[hons] Textile/Surface Design. City & Guilds Teaching. City & Guilds Photography. My aim is to bring together all i have discovered and taught, into the Crafting arena. Crafting has moved forward in leeps and bounds from the day i started there is no wrong way to do something. Crafting is about FUN, ENJOYMENT, DISCOVERY and the feeling that you have produced something that you are proud to hand over as a gift. As a paper Surface Designer i am always working on new designs, some i hope to offer to fellow crafter's to use in their crafting projects. Remember crafting is FUN!! Happy crafting .....
