Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 605

Any way to get Fox Swatches other than the website? Don't want to pay 38 pounds just for shipping 8 swatches to the US.

If you're in NYC, feel free to stop by to look at the books.

I didn't have to pay near that much for shipping but things may have changed. What do you need? If you're in the US I'll send you what I have.

This one. Tones are richer and more complex.

Just break it up into separate orders. Total shipping will be much less.

Anyone have pics of the latest Breanish book?

Thought this tidbit might interest some in this thread.

Is it possible that Scabal is bringing back the discontinued Shetland tweeds? Particularly the 800374 below

According to the caption in this video, Scabal will have Shetland in the 2013/2014 winter collection. Anyone know anything about this?
