Remember the 90s?

We are getting ready to move house, and we've just found those boxes we packed last time we moved. Actually some were packed when we moved nearly 15 years ago.

Decorative Folk Artist - Summer 2013

I've been slogging away at the next edition - the first since our annual convention in Swindon - and it will be sent out to our email subscribers very soon. The CD subscribers will be a few days later.

There are some interesting and thought provoking articles; I tell you about my day with Andy Skinner, Gill Hobbs starts her new series of projects for beginners, and not-so-beginners, Dorothy Oliver tells us what she things of the BADFA collection, and Ann Patmore describes her time spend with one of our popular teachers.

So, if you are a member of BADFA, the Summer edition will soon be with you. If you are not a member of BADFA, then you should be.

Don't forget to drift by our web site to keep up to date with the latest goings-on! incase you were wondering.
