the American variety.

BTDT... ordered EQ4 from Connecting Threads a while back (yikes, 3
years ago when I dislocated my shoulder!!!) as it was on a very good
special offer, and by the time I'd paid shipping, handling, VAT,
customs and for the parcel to have its own VIP seat in First Class on
Concorde, it cost more than I could have bought it for in the UK...
My advice? bribe someone on here with enough British chocolate and
quilting magazines to last them a lifetime...

Hoping some of you ladies can help me out with a wee problem I had with some
I ordered about $50 worth of lovely fabric from E Quilter.com as even with
paying the 9 dollars postage it's cheaper than buying fabric here in the UK.
The parcel came this morning and although I was delighted with the contents,
I was clobbered for a £8.36 (about $11) surcharge from Customs. I called to
ask why, and basically it's because it was worth more than £15, wasn't a
gift, and was sent from outside Europe.
So, any ways round this? Are there any nice quilting shops in the USA or
Canada that will mark something as a gift instead of "merchandise"?
Thanks in anticipation!
