Hello to Laird,

I'm sorry to hear that Dover books go out of print occasionally. I've never
had difficulty finding them. Indeed, you might do well to keep an eye on
the used bookstores in your area. I believe that at one point in time I
had -three- copies of Sibmacher, picked up for under $5 each at used
bookstores. I give them away to aspiring medieval needleworkers or as
contest prizes.
