Excellent Service February 19, 2014
Reviewer: Amanda Jolly-Seddon from Manchester, Lancs United Kingdom  
I've used your website before and cannot fault the whole service offered.  Despite being in the UK the pattern arrived within a week of ordering, in excellent condition and well packaged.

I would recommend you.
