a total of almost 1,900 threads.
RRP in UK is £11.25

The other commitments in my life mean that I am unable to schedule a whole day for collection of a parcel
which is what all the courier 'services' seem to expect.
However if you have an account with MyHermes I will take parcels to the local pick-up point. Please contact me.
Other couriers by arrangement, and only if they will collect during the morning.
For UK customers GBP cheque or electronic transfer preferred.
