    May I know how much would be the postage to Malaysia for this book. thank you

  5. Wavatar Jackie Corsi says:

    I wonder if you could tell me, in GBP, how much postage and packing is to the UK. I love your book, Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork, but can’t possibly afford it from Amazon UK. If I could afford it I would, therefore, prefer to buy it from you.
    Many thanks.
    With kind regards

    • Hi Jackie
      The book is out of print and that is probably why it is so expensive. Hopefully my stockists in the UK still have some in stock. Please have a look here:

      and type in United Kingdom in the search bar.

      Let me know if there’s anything else I can do to assist. We are busy revamping the RES and it should be on the shelves sometime soon.

      Have a good Monday
      Kindest regards
