About This Club

The Clan Claus Society embodies the desire to preserve and perpetuate the history, ideals, traditions, family values, and heritage of the Scottish Santa Claus persona. The Clan Claus Society is fundamentally different from any other Santa group. All members will participate in an organization that is totally "FAMILY" oriented. As such, the Society invites like-minded individuals to join together to share in the Christmas family camaraderie and to encourage others to uphold the traditions of the Scottish Santa Claus persona throughout the year keeping the Spirit of Christmas alive in the hearts of all ages.

    Tartan Ordering

    Locked the topic to prevent replies as Kona stated above.
  4. Do not reply to this posting this is for information. Please follow instructions in post. Tartan Ordering Process You must be an official member of The Clan Claus Society to order tartan. To place a tartan order we must order a minimum of 30 meters at a time. The entire order must be the same weight (13oz - 16oz). The fabric is double wide approximately, 140cm (55”Inches). There seems to be a strong interest in 16oz fabric so we will be ordering 16 oz. tartan this time. Tartan takes anywhere from 8 - 12 weeks to weave depending on how busy the mill is at the time we place the order. Here is the process: 1) You are responsible for your correct measurements and your correct yardage amounts. I would suggest that you work with a kilt maker for this. Measure twice! 2) If you don’t have a kilt maker, contact USA Kilts www.usakilts.com or John Higgins at www.jhiggins.net they will help you out. We have worked out an arrangement with each vendor and they will accept your own supplied tartan. You must tell them that you will be sending them your Clan Claus Society tartan. 3) Individual tartan orders must be paid in full and are not refundable. I must pay for the tartan in full when I place the order. You will only pay for the fabric in advance. Shipping will be billed separately. 4) If you are planning to pay via Pay Pal or Square the 3% fee from Pay Pal and Square will be added to your order. 5) The price for tartan on this order is $58.00 per meter. 6) All the tartan will initially be shipped to me, (the mill will not drop ship to anyone else). 7) Shipping: There will be two (2) shipping costs. a. First shipping cost is from the mill to me. This will be shared equally by all those ordering fabric. Last time we ordered fabric the shipping was about $185.00 for 60 meters. b. Second shipping cost will be from me to you and will be specific to your order. c. Tartan will not be shipped out until the shipping charges are paid. 8) Once I receive the tartan, I must check all of the fabric to make sure there are no issues. I will then cut it and ship it to you. NOTE: The last time we ordered tartan there was a surprise tariff. ($200.00 USD. It was quite a big surprise) All of our previous orders have never had a tariff. I paid the tariff fee because everyone had already paid in full. Should we get another tariff on fabric orders going forward I will divide it among all those purchasing tartan at this time. To place your order contact me using my direct email santakona@gmail.com. Supply me with your name, current address, email and your phone number along with the total number of meters you would like to order. To insure your order is received do not message me through Facebook or on ClausNet. Any question please feel free to call me at 440-725-2107. Kona

    This is awesome! Congrats to the Claus Clan Society!
  12. Dear Clan Claus Society Members – It is my pleasure to share with you that Dr. Joseph J Morrow QC the Lord Lyon of Scotland is now a distinguished member of the Clan Claus Society! The Court of the Lord Lyon is the heraldic authority for Scotland and deals with all matters relating to Scottish Heraldry and Coats of Arms. The Court of the Lord Lyon of Scotland maintains the Scottish Public Registers of Arms and Genealogies. (www.lyon-court.com) We were fortunate that one of our members, Santa Matty Ross was in the “right place at the right time”. For those of you who do not know Matty, he is a fixture at the Utah Highland games where he represents Clan Claus Society. The Lord Lyon was in attendance at the Utah games a few months ago to award the Utah games their own Coat of Arms. Matty was one of a few select people invited to the private reception for the Lord Lyon. It just so happens that Matty was seated directly across from the Lord Lyon. The Lord Lyon noticed Matty’s Order of the Benevolent Reindeer medallion and inquired about its significance. Matty and the Lord Lyon had a lively conversation. He was very interested in our mission and purpose. As it turns out the Lord Lyon has been portraying Santa for over 20 years! He has been a part of the spirit of Christmas for decades. I was able to make contact with him and invited him to become a member our Christmas family. Here is his response. “Dear Kona, I was so delighted and honored to be made a member of your Society. It also in this summer months brought a real sense of joy to me. Can you thank all in the Claus Clan Society for the kindness they have shown me. All the materials have arrived safely I think it is one of the most enjoyable honors I have ever received. I will promote your/our work through my own work. With many thanks and best wishes.” Lord Lyon (Santa Joe Morrow)
  13. Hey everybody, During Discover Santa I had a number of people enquirer about the Clan Claus Society group and other aspects of us being kilted Santas. For anyone interested we have a website, Clanclaussociety.com and I also told a number of people that we have a Christmas story of Santa's first trip to Scotland. I did not have any copies of it to hand out but anyone interested in reading it can find it on the website as well. Here is a direct link to the story. Christmas Tale, Santa's first visit to Scotland Remember being a part of a clan is being part of a family, and it is always great to have a bigger family, come check us out.
  14. wonderful. congratulations you two. so glad to see you are sharing the load now Kona.
