    Absolutely love this purchase. From the kind communication to the speedy shipping and the icing on the cake, COMPOSTABLE packaging! I love this seller and her shop. Quality vintage fabric (which you can see in the way she presents perfect photos on her listings!), which I love. So happy to have purchased from this exceptional shop! Highly recommended!

    Fabric is beautiful shipping is always expensive. But in the end I received the package.

    The fabric was what I expected, and was delivered timely.
