I bought my soft pot kit from Annie in Stoneygate, York seven years ago and (because I'm a terrible procrastinator with lots of unfinished projects), I am only about to do it now. It's a travesty to such a beautiful art, I know. But I am so excited. I have all my buttons, beads and threads out on the work table, as well as the kit. I've just ordered some more materials and .... you can tell I'm excited! Roll on 2022 and a great new beginning - in all kinds of art.
By the way, I fell a little bit in love with Annie when I met her - her spirit shone. She danced in her little office at the end and welcomed me like an old friend. I just told my (new) husband about her, only to look online and find she's gone. She's an angel.
