Hi Dyan!

 Thankyou SO much for writing in!

 I need 52", and I'm thinking about 3/4" inch wide.

 It'd need to be in a gold that matches the color of Light Gold Lurex 
from Tanya Berlin's site (I can do the colour match on the screen 
between the two companies myself if things do go ahead)

What are her costs like?

:-)
