Sew relatable!

I love these podcasts...... so much information all presented in an informal manner. Buying fabric can be so tricky. As mentioned, buying plains can be problematic and leave you with polyester (and associated static) the only choice. I too have found a garment made from top quality fabric and properly lined, will last in good condition for years and represents brilliant value for money. I must visit the podcast on buying fabric online!
