Thank you for the faith and trust you placed in Hitomi and I as we completed “A Fresh Look at Judging Floral Design“. Your immediate enthusiastic response to the book has delighted us.

Many of you have indicated how much the book resonates with you as it addresses designers and their readiness, teachers and the tools to better equip them, the depth of training for judges as they learn to apply their knowledge to seeing, scoring and critiquing and, of course, the benefits that accrue to competitors who put themselves out there.

May the book inspire you to new ways of seeing and doing that will make judging an exciting path of growth for you, the arranger, teacher, judge and viewer. Each can rejoice in well-deserved pride of accomplishment.
