  • Thanks for this informative video Anna. Good to see the tucking in action.
    One comment on video production- no need for background music. It competed too much with the lovely local bird song and the essential message from you.

  • Hi there,
    I have found it much easier (and less messy) to use double sided tape on the rings, rather than cotton tape, glue and pegs. Just wondering why you use the latter over the double sided tape?

    Kind regards,
