Last Saturday was a busy day at the Elegant Crystal & China Shop. At one point six brides-to-be were simultaneously selecting china patterns to be recorded in the bridal registry. The brides ranged in age from 25 to 30 years old, though no two were the same age. Each of their selected patterns (including "Eternal Spring") was by a different manufacturer (including Lennox). Can you determine each bride's age, china pattern and manufacturer, and the order in which each selection was entered into the registry?
- Edythe (who didn't register last) didn't select the "Old English" pattern.
- The woman who selected the "Liberty Gold" pattern registered it sometime before Fran, who registered sometime before the eldest bride-to-be.
- The woman who chose Wedgwood china is as much older than Sinette as Sinette is older than the woman who selected the "Evergreen" pattern. Of the other three brides-to-be, Carla is younger than the woman who selected the Royal Worcester, who is younger than the woman who selected the "Old English" pattern.
- Alicia registered sometime before the woman who selected the pattern by Sasaki, who registered sometime before the 28-year-old.
- The woman who chose "Dusty Rose" registered sometime before the one who selected Spode china, who registered sometime before the one who chose Royal Doulton.
- Alicia, who is 26 years old, didn't register the pattern by Royal Worcester.
- The woman who chose "Fresh Garden" is older than the one who selected "Liberty Gold," who is older than Joan.
