  • Do I need to make a new video?

    The answer to the question was yes! Above is a screen shot of a post that I asked in the creative hive, one of the groups that I am in on Facebook, I made a video of the sewing Boro roll that was not made up and I asked for feedback and the feedback given was show how to use the Boro sewing roll to create excitement and also mention that it is a live workshop. I created a new video yesterday and realised that although I knew what I wanted to say, I needed to write it down and make a script so I was clear and precise in…
