We have returned from our weeks holiday up near the Victoria/NSW coast. We loved it and have come back refreshed and relaxed! Thank you to those people who sent us well wishes and enjoys! - yes, we did have fun, I can tell you! Lots of feeding ducks, sitting in the sun, swimming and eating. I wish I could stay on holiday for much, much longer! We're back to the grind on Monday and shall start to catch up on orders and enquiries...
I found this Vera Neumann article oh so interesting. I hope you like it, too!
An older wing of the Printex plant houses the hand screen printing tables which, in 1964, were more frequently used for sample yardage.
