    It was such a delight to participate in the Jury for Feel the Yarn. The students were articulate and enthusiastic about their work, which in many cases was outstanding. Worthy winner YiYi Gou showed a youthful enthusiasm, creative skill in her colourful, uplifting collection. As a judge, it was a great experience to share the joie de vivre of the young designers from so many countries and see the great support of the Italian yarn industry and commerce.
