  1. Thanks for the link. I had an email from Rainbow Silks about it but was viewing on my old laptop last night and couldn't get the taster video to work. I have now viewed it and it looks like being a good programme.


Thank you for visiting Loose Ends and leaving your much appreciated thought. I hope you have a wonderful creative day!
