Higher National Diploma BTEC qualification. For a short while I was able

Hampton Court to study at the Royal School of Needlework. Last year I
achieved the RSN Certificate for Technical Hand Embroidery with a Merit. I am
now studying for a Diploma in Hand

had the business Iíve hand crafted over 200 stoles or scarves. You can
see how pleased customers are with the quality of my products on the

out for the introduction of more of my own designs in 2013.
