New Tartan Order 3/19

New Tartan Order 
We are putting together another tartan order. For those of you that missed the deadline last time around now is your chance. Don't miss out! For those of you who forgot this is the ordering process. 
(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). 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 Hazel Stewart at www.kiltshop.comor 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 depends the current mill pricing at the time of the order.
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 email me at santakona@gmail.com or feel free to call me at 440-725-2107.

Has the tartan design changed over the years?

No the tartan thread counts are still the same. We have been using a different mill then we started with the quality is 100+ better.

So is the red color, more red now? Or is it still on the orange side?

I still have a swatch from the original run, as I was asked to see if I could match colors for possible vests.

Would it be possible to get a swatch of the new one once it comes in?

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

    • Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas
      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
