A couple of months ago, I phoned your shop/office at 4pm on Wednesday evening to order some material.....I had been let down at the last minute by local fabric shop. I needed the fabric to re-upholster my dining room chairs but realized I would have to delay my lesson until the week after. You staff, were incredibly helpful in choosing the fabric and the amount I needed and to my surprise it arrived at 9.00 am the next morning. "
