  • Lanark Small Holders Festival

    Had a great day at the Lanark Small Holders Festival on Saturday 26th September.  I was there as a ambassador for Zero Waste Scotland and the Love Your Clothes campaign.
     
    I had some interesting discussions/sold some more" Girls Get Stitching" books need to re think  the title to 'ALL' get stitching under took some small workshops with  a variety of people from aged 8 years to 80 years!
     
    I was lucky enough to discuss my research and future research with Ingun Grimstad Klepp an ethnologist who works with SIFO in Norway and Tone Tobiasson - responsible for NICE Norway and Editor of the nicefashion.org website.
     
    All in one day!
