Next Year's Calender

We've been putting out thinking caps on in the office this morning - our 'big idea' is to work at least 12 months ahead and devise a 'calender' of events which will be mainly online so that all students and other facebookers with an interest in textiles can join in, even if they live miles away from the centre or are in another country. These will then be made into a download and can be viewed from our site.

We've been toying with the idea of awarding a bursary each year which will completely pay for either a certificate or diploma student to complete their studies with us and had thought of running a competition of some sort to award it.  Whatever the competition or challenge for this was it could become one of the events for the year.

Other ideas were to include an open day at the same time as the annual exhibition for this who were near the centre to visit and view at the same time as speaking with the tutors and we'd also like to include at least one of the events for a charitable cause..............mmmm.  Lots to think about!  If you have any unusual/innovative ideas, then please do drop me a line. I'd love to get your input

Went walking at the weekend - the weather was somewhat better than today (it's pouring down!!) and took a couple of pictures of our route (one below) which tends to always end/begin or break at Cedar Farm for some of Roberts & Co's gorgeous fresh coffee! Recently an unfolding drama there has added interest to our usual stopoffs - a rather 'unique'customer turns up each week, elderly husband in tow, on Sunday morning and spends 3 hours or so with her bare feet up on one of their sofas (always the same one - apparently she arrives 15 mins before they open to ensure she gets it), completely shreding all their Sunday suppliments, leaving a huge pile of paper behind her, nothing left for anyone else to read and the staff and owners ready to do murder!!  From a psychological point of view it's pure gold - she's clearly on a weird sort of power trip, but my money is on the staff and owners of Robert's to win out...........watch this space for status updates!
