Hello Sandy -
Wonderful. Thank you for helping with the Southport workshop. And I just shipped two boxes yesterday to the UK too, one to Maureen and one to Suzanne, so with all our focus, it should be a good workshop ;-)
And maybe other workshops can be presented in the UK, in other areas too. I received an email from someone asking if a workshop could be held in Wales, so there seems to be interest...
Regarding using SignPuddle...it is pretty easy...

To add BSL literature or documents into the BSL Literature puddle:
