    Cathy M....did you use the square box or the long flat one?
    On t square box I used, it says total weight is 20 pounds on it.
    Not sure on the other box.
    Don't know what box your postal person is talking about. But they had 3 of them there. The long one that was about 2-3 inches high, the small square looking one, then another square one that was bigger, but is for APO/FPO shipping. Need to find out the rules on that one. I can get mail thru APO and someone told me that if you mail to APO/FPO its FREE! Hmmmmm.........
    I think it sucks you had to take the ribbon off!!

    But I like your table top. Really pretty!

    I need to find that 3d box. Didn't know they had it. I used the 12x12x5.5.
    Was mad that I had it full to the top and it only weight 6.65 pounds! Wanted to take it back and repack to find more room to put more fabric in. But, I'm definitely going to find that $49 box .

    Thank you Cathy, I guess the clerk was just lazy and did't want to look that up for me.

    Tirhni!!

    Where are you?? missin you, I have been trying my best to find out abit more information regarding fabric outlets in Hong Kong - NO easy task!!

    I have googled craft fabric/craft shops/quilting/ etc., with very little luck, but did find a couple of blogs in which they were asking about fabric outlets etc.

    One area being discussed that has a huge fabric market is a place called Sheung Wan, Sham Shui Po and Shanghai they apparently have a great market too!!

    I will plod on and try and find out some more info for you, its the least I can do for you, giving some of my time in return for your generosity!!

    If you DO google yourself, DO NOT go onto the site needleworkclub.com
    I got a blinking virus which thankfully was picked up by my AVG programme this morning, so be careful!!

    Catch you later,

    Izy

    Tirhni - well I broaden my horizons, and learnt a whole lot more about Hong Kong - Oh I wish I was going!! If you like Singapore you are just gonna luuuuuuuvvvvve Hong Kong!!

    Here are some websites with lots of good general/shopping information:-

    www.placesinfo.com/hongkong_shopping.html
    www.discoverhongkong.com - this is the tourist board site
    www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism_in_Hong_Kong

    On Wikipedia, if you look on the left, I think the link is 'where to shop' click on there, you will see all the different areas mentioned and what they particularly sell there. It mentions Sheung Wan in the Western District - sounds good fun!!

    Am I tempting you to go now?????? :D :D

    Ok..I'm going to do a clean-up in my room tomorrow. Can you post the address again so I can just take it from the computer. And please ignore any cat/dog hair..I use it instead of peanuts to cushion the package *said with very dry wit** :D
