Again, my deepest thanks and gratitude. You have to do none of this, and yest you have.
I am glad to be able to read all of the amazingly helpful information here. I also understand, as an apprentice of this site, learning by self-tuition, that I am being allowed, by you, to take part in these discussions and to learn. I am also acutely aware that in its primacy, this is a site for and by professionals.
You industry (bespoke, MTM or RTW) guys and gals are here for each other, and not at my beck and call. I will have patience in my questions, and demand nothing, as you do this out of your love for the craft, and in the interest of its preservation and application. This is not a place to ask and have answered silly home sewer questions.
Again, thanks for everything you've built here, allowing it to be available to all, and to all the professionals that give freely of their minimal free time to help those with a SERIOUS interest in the craft, its application and its preservation for posterity.
Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, but not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy; for the apparel oft proclaims the man.
-Polonius, Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 3
