    then you type in '20 metres' and press 'weave'...the fabric emerges from a long slot at the bottom of the machine.

    simple.
    Will the software run under Windows? Will the device be connected via USB? Firewire? Fibre channel? Does the light go out when I close the fridge door?

    Pretend that you owe me nothing and all the world is green.

    Thank you Rudie! That is exactly what I was referring to. I'd love to have a sportcoat made in the fabric.

    Thanks for the link. I think I'll use that for my next (winter/autumn) newsboy (after the linen version).
