I got mail...!!!

I mentioned in a previous post that I got some wonderfull news when attending at a David Hurley workshop. Well it was just an email so I wanted to wait a bit longer to be sure.
But this week there arrived a big envelope when I got home from work! Yes.....!!
Now I know I'm not dreaming anymore.....

I feel so honored.....because the IGMA has awarded me with a Scholarship for the Guild School 2012 at Castine. So now it's time to decide which workshops to follow. And that's very difficult since there are so many nice/interesting workshops to choose from.

On the website of IGMA you can read more about it, here you read more about the Guild Scholarship Program.

  21. Hi Sophia,
    Thank you....have you been there?
    This year Geoff Wonnacott doesn't give a workshop at Castine if I'm correct.
    But I've picked some other interesting classes.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed and hopefully get my first choice.
