5.0 out of 5 stars Plus below grease, 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some of the things are a bit wacky, but they do work. Reminds me of any granny, she brought up 7 children on a pittance. I would say that some of the things need old fashioned elbow grease as well

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative, 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am reasonably experienced sewer, the book was informative and easily understood and I bought the book for the patterns. I would not liked to have paid full price for the book and to be honest only bought it as a watched the TV programme. It's good for someone embarking on a new hobby

5.0 out of 5 stars they are very useful and can be purchased in other colours, 26 Sept. 2014
I use these all the time, they are very useful and can be purchased in other colours. They are not so obvious as the plain tacks. They blend in very well. Not to be used where strength is needed, use ordinary tacks for strength
