I think at the MSRP of $340 a box, I agree...Ravi occasionally sales them for a few bucks over $300, which is a little more palatable. The Pacifico has so much more character than the JL#4 torpedo, same year regional.
Wool/cash check would have been my choice. Greg was right in that keeping it open longer just delays things, just for those of us that just binge our way through SF threads once a week or 10 days, no wool/cash check in the cards. Beautiful fabric and great project idea, hope to get in on a future round.
