3.0 out of 5 stars Esprit largetop 082CC1KO34, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was disappointed with this top because it is so flimsy. I doubt I will purchase clothing again by the net. I prefer to feel the articles before purchase. I know one can return goods but it is more of a hassle than choosing in a shop. Dee

5.0 out of 5 stars Quilting Cutter Mat, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the latest cutting mat I have purchased since I started quilting a good twenty years ago. It is a much improved quality with a middle layer that provides stability. The self-healing surface is smooth and efficient. The measurements on each side (cms. and inches) are ideal providing a personal choice for the textile worker. Dee

5.0 out of 5 stars Olfa 45mm safety rotary cutter, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cutter is very well made and an essential for people doing Patchwork and Quilting. The blade size is ideal when cutting large quantities of fabric for quilts etc. and gives a smooth edge for sewing pieces together. Replacement blades ensure that this cutter will be usable for ever. I introduce my P&Q students to this size and make of cutter and they all agree that it is an essential tool which enhances their work. Dee

5.0 out of 5 stars The pins for Quilters, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These pins are ideal for anyone doing Patchwork and Quilting. The length and strength of each pin is ideal for the stretching process when one attaches the three layers of fabric under tension prior to the tacking phase. I recommend them. Dee

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fiber and Fleece Sourcebook, 24 Oct 2011
Robson, Deborah & Ekarius, Carol 2011 THE FLEECE AND FIBER SOURCE BOOK Storey Publishing

Pre-publication praise for this book excited me enough to pre-order a copy . I have hardly stopped looking at it. Aesthetically it is a beautifully illustrated volume inviting you to share with the authors their hands-on knowledge and experience of sheep. To open the covers is to be introduced to the world-wide map of `fiber animals' so that the reader becomes part of the wider community that is promoting wool particularly. Three-quarters of the book is given to sheep and the last 100 pages to other animal fibres such as Alpaca, Camel and the hair of rabbits and dogs. Each breed is introduced with a concise historical background. The photographs clearly place the sheep in their own specific environment and the accompanying sketch-book style of presentation of fleece to yarn is an inspiration for textile students at every level. All the information given is clear and well organised. It enhances the reader's experience and understanding of sheep, fibers and techniques required for producing yarn for knitting and weaving. The joint authors' personal experience of raising sheep and publishing books on livestock farming adds a depth to the volume of facts they have elected to include. This will inevitably widen the number of readers. I was thrilled to find how thoroughly they have researched British Rare Breeds at this time when we have a national campaign for the promotion of British wool .

I have been delighted to find that Amazon is offering Epson Original Multipack Black and Colour Cartridges . Internet search for this brand of ink (the honeybee) offers them at exorbitant prices with the sweetener of free postage.The last one I found cost twice as much as the Amazon price. Thank you Amazon. I just hope Epson doesn't stop production soon.
