Hurrah for a Sunny November day in The Lakes

By lisawato / November 7, 2013 / 0 Comments

It might have been rather rather wet and miserable last Sunday in Manchester, but The Lakes were experiencing glorious sunshine, which meant my wedding photographer friend; Jo Bradbury http://www.jobradbury.co.uk/ was able to take some delightful images of my new quilts. Thank you Jo.

These quilt pics are for my new website that is being created NOW!

Incidentally  Manufacturing Advisory Service http://www.mymas.org/ are supporting me in the development of my new website and if you are a start up business in the NW, it is well worth getting in touch with them too.
I was particularly impressed when I found out how MAS had assisted the iconic Brit brand Norman Walsh trainers; http://www.walshcasual.com/ so if it’s good enough for Norman Walsh…..
