As some of you will know, I spent the early part of the summer putting together a funding bid for EU monies for a project close to my heart, linking textile craft skills with local fleece producers.  Unfortunately the bid has not been successful, falling foul of EU funding rules which my advisers did not advise me of!  So after feeling a little deflated for an hour or two, I have picked myself up and am taking some time to reassess and find a new way forward.  

Serendipitously, the Heritage Lottery Fund telephoned me a few hours before I received the news about the EU funding, so there may well be an opportunity to apply to the HLF instead, for a new, improved version of the project.  So watch this space, it’s not over yet!
