AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
Here is something that came across my desk this week - for those of you who are interested (fabric for the taking - and it's free)
Debbie Warren from Warner Brothers Studio has fabric to give away that is used on sets or end piece materials (so they can be ecologically correct) There is big shed filled with material and more comes every week. Debbie would like bags filled with fabric picked up on a weekly basis. So, if any of you out there are interested, Please contact Debbiewarren@warnerbros.com
