Songololo-Feet re-surfaced.

Days age when sex-workers could work safely in Soho and Mini-Holland was double-dutch, a crowd of Up Your Street people went to free screen-silk printing (FREE!!!) at Songololo-Feet in Hackney. Today I received my birthday present from Sue who’d incorporated her block print into a gorgeous hand-made crochet bag (or is it knitting?). Learnt skills, learnt skills.
