The European Travelling Apron?

Well Jkath got this lovely idea of the travelling apron.. well now she and I got to talking, as there are members on this side of the pond (in Europe), and maybe it is a bit inconvenient to bounce it across the Atlantic ocean, how about a separate European Apron amongst us Europeans?

As I saw the interests in the original apron thread, the apron list so far is..

-Urmaniac13
-Cara
-Jikoni

anyone to follow us up?

awww, we should all be on the same apron. 1 world, not 3, ya know?
we should just adjust the list so it travels around each continent before being sent off to the next.

Hey Bucky, that would be ideal but then we found out the shipping cost is ridiculously high (though we are somewhat in doubt at the price we have seen so far... 50 dollars, some verification may be necessary...)

Or do you know any UPS guy that you can buy off with a couple of brews?

That must be wrong... I mail things to Greece every now and again and I've never paid that much, not even close. Check out the post office instead of Fed x or UPS. MUCH CHEAPER.

I agree, it can't cost that much! I've shipped t-shirts to Australia for $10 max using air mail at the post office. Once the apron has been shipped across the Atlantic, just make sure it hits all the europeans that want to be a part of this before shipping it back to the US. How do I add my name to the list?

From the usps website. A 2 lb package from my house to Italy. I'd be happy to send it over.
