Start Up Britain in Shropshire

I attended the Start Up Britain Roadshow in Telford's International Conference centre on Wednesday. It went really well, got lots of good information about starting up businesses and made some good connections. The highlight of the event was being chosen as the best new business, which was an amazing confidence boost and I won a laptop! It was really good to see people who liked the new designs for fabric and being very interested in Whinberry & Antler. The photo below is was taken of myself, holding a cutting of Whinberry & Antler fabric, and Fay Easton, who ran the event and invited me to it.

Here's a link to some press info about the event - http://www.shropshirelive.com/2011/09/27/sound-success-for-startup-shropshire/

So I am now carrying on with upholstering a small wing back chair and the silk screen table is being constructed today, very exciting.
