Travelling regularly between Birmingham New Street and Tywyn has offered Margaret the opportunity to study and appreciate both urban and rural views from the comfort of the Arriva Train service.
During June there will be various Textile Degree Shows on at Universities up and down the country. I found the dates for Loughborough (10-18 June), Wolverhampton (10-21 June) De Montfort, Leicester (16-22 June) and Birmingham City (12-23). Degree shows can be good places to find new ideas and techniques so if you're near any venues during June, do go and have a look.
