Sabrina Shirazi is just starting her final year in BA(Hons) Textile design at Falmouth College and has had a great start as she has just been awarded 2ND prize in the prestigious Hand and Lock's student embroidery competition 2011. Sabrina's piece I thought was very suitable as inspiration for the NC 'Fun and Humour Brief' and Sabrina's story, I hoped might inspire some of you to enter next year's Hand and Lock prize . The 2012 Hand and Lock competition opens on October 1st 2011 and works have to be submitted March 31st 2012 . . . go on take the challenge!
