Hello, just a brief introduction to your newest member! I'm a fully paid up member of the textile designers club having completed a four year apprenticeship in Jacquard Design just before the computer changed the world (only about 25 years ago!!!). I retrained as a graphic designer a few years later with a print company and I am now running a successful print company in Cheshire in the UK called Spiral Colour which is known online as PrintAndroid.co.uk I work with graphic designers every day and still love being involved in creative processes. I've joined because I would still like to keep in touch with the designers community both in graphic design and textile design. As an old fogey of 43 years old I just don't want to lose touch with young and energetic designers with new ideas which make the world go round!
