5.0 out of 5 stars great book, 15 Mar 2014

Excellent introduction for those of us who are beginners. I haven't used it much yet as been too busy but I'm sure it will be invaluable.

I managed to get these. Now apparently unavailable in Chemist's shops thankfully I found them on Ebay. Corn gone. Corn pads up to normal standard.

Dylon Dyes are standard and good if used correctly. These were a good price bargain. Not much else I can add to this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing in ideas and technical help., 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 50 Fabric Animals (Paperback)
A very dissappointing book - does not live up to its description. Too many rather boring bears - I was hoping for lots of modern ideas for animals to make from modern fabrics. You will not find them here. Instructions are surprizingly poor for a Search Press published book. The instructions for scaling up the patterns - require a trip to a copy shop - not always easy for everyone and two lots of enlargements, 1 x 200% and then another by 160%. There are no contacts for an author or for suppliers. Instructions for jointing hopelessly brief. If you are an experienced maker you might use it for ideas - but those are fairly thin on the ground. Its going straight into my 'sell back' pile.

1.0 out of 5 stars 3 years past expiry date, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this in May 2012 and on opening and fitting into printer the printer tells me its past the expiry date. Sure enough when I look at the caseing it is dated 21/12/2009. Now I have ordered another and cant use my printer till it comes and am waiting for a refund. There was no expiry date on the outer wrapper.

4.0 out of 5 stars after one month's use, 30 April 2012

this fridge seems to be all it is described as. It was bought for a B&B room and needed to be silent. It is absolutely silent. After one month it is still working fine. Delivery was very quick.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing, 8 April 2011
I returned this immediately as it had a useless radio tuning system and was generally plasticky and not worth the price. Intended for children I think.


Signe Chanel - Haute Couture Collection [DVD]
Signe Chanel - Haute Couture Collection [DVD]
Dvd ~ Signe Chanel
Price: 26.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and captivating, 22 Dec 2010
A captivating look into the workings of the Channel couture studios and work rooms preparing for a designer couture show. For anyone interested in couture fashion and the wonderful craft and workmanship skills still practised in Paris couture this is an essential DVD. Karl Lagerfield designs and controls the entire process with great charisma.
