Star Signs and Monograms...
Any star sign followers out there?
We asked one of our work experience interns this summer to look in to the star sign characteristics of each member of our team, and then design everybody a St James Washbag in the thread colour and font style which matches their star sign characteristics.  Then we asked her to write this blog about it. 
Is this indicative of the work we give our interns? Yes indeed.
