Dear Heather,
I am interested in purchasing all of your books. How is the best way to proceed? You could send an invoice to my Paypal account,which is my email

Hi, Paypal is fine but I need a postal address to calculate postage. Please contact me on - the site does not give me your email. Best wishes

I'd very much like to get hold of both Embroidered with White and White Embroidered Costume Accessories, to be sent to New Zealand. Are they still available?

Heather Toomer 23.08.2017 23.18

Yes, both available. Cost including air mail to N.Z. is £59 - sorry, no reduction for 2 as post has risen. Please email to arrange.

Hello Heather,
Would like your book 'European Lace' please let me know the price + post.
I am UK and bought from you several times before and love them all.

Dear Ann,
Glad you like my books. European Laces is now £5.50 including post I'm afraid - postage has gone up since I last updated. If that's OK please email me
