  93. Wowza. Well done, Tilly! Infiltrating the publishing world already?

    This would be super-helpful as being the vegan-sewing things can make it tricky to figure out which non-animal-derived fibres have the same hand as those recommended on pattern envelopes.

    If that makes ANY sense at all ;)

  177. What a fantastic resource - it wouldn't just be useful for fabric (for planning, dreaming, figuring out what I've got in my hand when I dumpster-dive and recycle old clothing into fabric, etc.), but would spill over into knitting and crocheting and textile sculpting, too. So awesome! And thanks for the chance to win one!
