Nearly famous....!

Well......not quite, but our materials may be near to other people who are famous!

Every now and again we'll have one of those really interesting phone calls, a designer, museum or theatre company wanting to create something a bit different using our materials. In the past we've supplied advice and all sorts of materials to be used by the West End and Covent Garden Theatres, snazzy London restaurants and even on the catwalk. We once supplied some basketmaking cane for a scene in "The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin" TV programme, (the poor long suffering wife of Reggie was trying to save money by restoring some chairs in one episode.)

Well today it was a film company that phoned, but not just any film company, the makers of the new Bond movie. Yes, our materials will be used on the set of the new movie. Oh well I thought it was exciting anyway........ at least it's a kind of brush with fame - about the closest we'll ever get, (thankfully)!

So a word of the week for a change.

Deluded - To mislead the mind or judgment, to mock or frustrate hopes and aims.

Just about sums it up I think!

Congrats! But Kim and Tim, how are the materials you are sending for the new Bond movie going to be used? Are they just going to be laying around on the floor or table, or is someone actually going to weave with them on camera? Inquiring minds want to know! If you are allowed to divulge the secret. Hehehe!

We are sworn to secrecy, hehe! I love the idea of someone weaving during the film, but sadly I don't think it's going to happen.
