    With cutting up a grenadine tie, wouldn't it eventually sort of destroy itself?

    Well... I could either cut a portion off the end, and mount it into a piece of wood or something. Or I could just contribute the entire tie. It's Garza Grossa Silk, supposedly imported from Italy. Very vintage Robert Talbott, and it's super skinny so I don't wear it. Nabbed it for $5 shipped off eBay last year. It's Brown.

    just sew a backstitch or sewing machine around the area before you cut and it should stay stable for awhile. but yeah i was thinking it would probably self-destruct quickly otherwise...

    Wow, im glad that you guys are all into the KnowledgeBox [​IMG]

    As Im sure you can imagine, I myself don't have time to coordinate such a thing to start - so Im going to look to the field of you all to collect all the donations from us and assemble the KnowledgeBox[​IMG]. Ill be happy to send off your first pieces of information to start it off into the world.

    By show of hands, who wants to start receiving donations and be in charge to send this off? Once its off for the first time, the hive will relieve you of your responsibilities.

    I should also note that anyone who is sending in samples for the KnowledgeBox[​IMG], to mark or otherwise make them un-resellable, in order to circumvent any possibly unsavory characters out there.
