And to think all this started because I needed a microfiche reader for my Family History research :)
I began making Bobbin Lace in 1985 and progressed to being a Lace Supplier in 1989, attending Lace Days, Workshops and Group meetings all over the UK. In 1990, I was diagnosed with Osteo-Arthritis in both of my hands. It has now spread to other joints and can be VERY uncomfortable; I am now awaiting a knee replacement as a result. I had to give up making lace a few years ago, so took up researching my family history instead.
I now have a *website* about my research - anyone related to the CAWTHORNs, SCOTTs, PALMERs or DeSilva PALMERs of Cambridgeshire and West Norfolk, do get in touch - we might be related!
I found eBid.uk in 2004 and the site is an ideal medium for selling my books, vintage postcards, left-over lace & craft supplies and collectables inherited from my grandmother and mother.
After losing my mother in December 2008, I opened a fundraising store here on eBid -*Annie's Charity Attic* - to help raise funds for her favourite charity - *the East Anglia Childrens' Hospices*. Loads of goodies now on sale - so do pop in and take a look.
April 2016 - I started new listings for the *Dyfi Osprey Project* here in Mid Wales. It is one of Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust's flagship projects based at the Cors Dyfi Reserve near Machynlleth on the west coast of mid Wales.
I also list in the monthly YDC [Your Donation Counts] Charity auctions - both for the nominated charity & for E.A.C.H. and D.O.P.
