We have lots of patterns and kits in the shop from Sylvia, as well as skeins of trapunto wool. If you order several at the same time, then as all the items can be sent together, we do try and adjust the p&p manually after the order has been placed, depending on the size of package required to send the items (The Post Office have some very strange pricing policies for size and weight!). Just contact us for details .
