Thanks to Sal's Snippets









Just a quick note to say thank you to Sal for her lovely giveaway. These were photographed when I came in from work last week but first chance to post.


Have been to a lovely felting day today - really enjoyed it. Will take a photo later of my effort which I am so pleased with..........


Have picked up a few bargains before Xmas and read some lovely blogs lately - there are so many clever people out there - also bought my first purchase off Etsy successfully.

Hello,
Thanks for your comment. Happy to help you, the only problem is, what's an "inchy"?! As to buying from America, I have bought lots from Etsy using Paypal, it's always been fine. The only thing you need to watch is customs duty. The customs duty is not so bad but for every parcel that attracts duty, the Royal Mail charge a lovely £8 handling fee on top too. As such, on a parcel of fabric, the cost to me will probably be £12-15 in fees once it lands here in the UK (paid at the sorting office before they will release your parcel). The duty is charged on anything coming in with a value over £18 for goods or £36 if it's a gift (the sender has to fill in a form stating the value of the goods on the front of the parcel). Still, fabric is often still a bit cheaper even with the fees and the choice is so much better over there. Hope that helps...
