Something I had in the mail today made me think I should share it with you, if you are a designer or manufacturer here in the UK interested in discussing the potential of keeping manufacture on home soil you should seriously think about attending this forum. Sadly I’m away in Sweden at that time trying to sort out wedding things, not long now and things are getting a little manic! : )
