Having recently discovered that making a necktie is not exactly rocket surgery, I came across this lot of patterns and remnants that arrived today.
I was tickled to find that many of the scraps are still big enough to get a tie out of, others I might get a blade or two and use an alternate fabric for the rest, or they could end up as bow ties.

Also included were a healthy swath of lining material, four strips already cut out, a fair bit of plain satin bemberg material (presumably for tips but which I could also use as lining in other sewing projects), and one complete tie (the green paisley one in the last picture).
