What can I earn?
I joined the course five years ago after I retired and was slightly alarmed to find that learning wasn't just a one-way thing.
We learn new stitches and methods, and innovative ways of incorporating them into items which we are challenged to design and make ourselves. This challenge releases our latent creativity and results in an amazing variety of beautiful creations made by members of the course.
