I received my assessment from the Royal School of Needlework today and I am over the moon! It’s been a long, long time since I’ve earned a grade for anything and, although I know it’s the learning that counts, I was still interested to see what the professionals had to say about my stitching.
But first…drum roll please…
Pass with Merit!!!
From the RSN Certificate Assessment Information:
Students are measured up against the finest embroiderers in the world and the gradings are much higher than other comparable courses. It is a great achievement to gain a Pass on an RSN course and this is what our tutors are
aiming for you to accomplish. If you gain a Pass grade you can be assured that your work is
of the appropriate standard required by the RSN
Merit 80% to 89% – this level indicates that you have demonstrated relevant and accomplished application of basic technical and practical skills; highly effective application of fundamental professional skills and a strong ability to work independently.
I am so chuffed! Proud! Amazed! Thankful! Relieved!
Here are a few of the comments the assessors made about my work.
