Times have changed since I was at school, in my day there was no t’internet, no mobile phones and a fax machine was cutting edge technology.

If there was a central information site which listed fashion courses, creative workshops, had online learning, my world would have been different, and i have to say, possibly a richer one.

Artsthread has been set up to link the creative peeps of this world to those in industry. Obvious I hear you say… maybe…. but this is the first site to do it.

After spending years in industry and on the receiving end of graduates who are creative but lack business skills, this is a dream opportunity and one greatly needed.

Recently invited by the V&A in London to host a talk, the people at Artsthread know their fabric from their fusing so If you are creative, want to be or know someone who is – check out the site.
