I love lots and lots of swatches, anything that cycles into and out
of fashion as well as the classics. I think the number and
assortment of swatches are good for two reasons. First, they align
with the focus of the text, which is those fabrics used in the
industry. Second, the depth of analysis required for each swatch
fits with the "science" part of fabric science and makes for a
reliable resource for students in the future. -- Sandra Lee

The current kit is comprehensive. . .I find a seamless synergy between booth the text and kit. Students have easy accessibility while reading about the topics and making the connections to the actual fabrics. The synergy reinforces their learning of the content. -- Nancy Miller, LIM College, USA
