Yes, and of course it's been relativley well documented in books and magazines, as I'm sure you're aware.

Of course Bryan made to a price for Supreme as did Tony Green and his father, in the same way as Wal working for Davs or Fred for Gamages, a basic business principal sureley. Buy for less, sell for more. And you can sell at a higher price without the middle man!

They will interest collecters, of course, but they would probably want to put them back to the original condition, and so pay less. Something that both Bryan or Geoff could do. Bryan has made a number of very good Tickner copies. However a mixed set is perfectly acceptable, and favoured by many performers and collectors.

I imagine the cat would be worth maybe £30 - £40 tops.

Actually I think it's Edwardian! A hand cranked Singer that's been in the family for ever it seems.

I can even use it for some small bits of jobs on the frame cover. But for making covers I borrow an industrial machine - the canvas is too solid woven for the old domestic machine. It breaks the industrial needles with ease.

But I don't make dresses or costumes myself. My lady does that and her machine is all singing and dancing. makes a good job.

Rejects John?!!? I can't afford to have rejects. This is my living - not my hobby!!!!

And my lady doesn't have rejects either. Well, not that she admits to. It's her living too!

No, it's just that Tony hasn't got a ladder. He'd have to stand on his tippy toes to reach the loft.

STOP PRESS

James - have noticed you have a new signature line.

These Maria Marten puppets are highly sought after.
Suffolk just can't get enough of the show!
The reviews are outstanding, and a certain DW is hoping to add this to his repertoire just as soon as he can recover his money from Iceland. (We told him to put it into Tescos - would he listen?).
Who'd want a proper job?
