My application for The Quilters' Guilds teacher's travel bursary
I am applying for this bursary and the deadline is next week. I have had some wonderful letters of support from former students, course organisers etc. but if anyone could write me another and e mail it to me before the start of next week, I'd be grateful. A few people have promised me letters but the deadline has rolled around very quickly! So if you can support me, please do.
I would love to win this bursary as the funds would enable me to take another trip to Japan next year and stay a little longer than usual in Yuza-machi, to learn some of the more difficult Yuza Sashiko patterns that I have yet to master. Then I can include them in my classes.
A link to all the Guild's bursaries is here. There are other bursaries, for students, beginners etc. so it is worth having a look and giving it a go if you are Guild member!
Photos include work by my two Loch Lomond Sashiko classes, some of which has been shown in Japan and which will form part of my application.
