I'm currently in no hurry to get my EFF stuff. My daughter brought home lice from that tenement we call a school so everything has been removed from our already overflowing closets to get cleaned or bagged for a few weeks. What a mess!
If you do use 1701 at some point, I'd be interested in your experience as well.I went into their shop in Birmingham on a whim one day (I was dropping something off at "Ali the Tailor" who is just a couple doors down) and they had a pretty good selection of fabric books to pick through.
