I had ordered my copy through the American company which imports 
"New Stitches" magazine, and I seem to recall it only cost about $30 plus 
shipping.  According to the flyer in this issue, though, it says it costs 
$39.50 plus $6.50 for shipping.  I'm not sure this offer is valid for non-
subscribers but it might be.  You can email them at 
britstitch at to check on that, if ya wanna. :)
