Thank you for visiting SIBOL today!
First of all may I thank you all for your comments, whether it be on the last Sunshine Blanket or indeed on the beautiful Squares we are getting through for SIBOL. It's very nice of you to take the time to comment.
Secondly, some advice from Katherine (UK). She is sending some Squares to me for the first time and thought you might like to know the following.......... I'm sure she won't mind I've 'copied and pasted' her advice.
"I had folded the squares up in a small padded envelope, but discovered from the post office assistant if I had left them flat in an A5 envelope which would have gone through the letterbox it would have been 66p, but as it ended up bulky it was £1.17. Not sure if this will be of interest to other ladies in the group. The package has to be 100grms or less. My 6 squares and padded envelope weighed 97grms, so although the weight was no different, the envelope was bulky because I had folded them in half, therefore costing more to send.
I will of course make sure I do what the assistant suggested next time."
Thanks so much for this Katherine. This is a really good idea. I do from time to time get Squares which have been folded and it will definitely work out cheaper if it's done this way. Many thanks.
