i got a tip from Dustina about threading some cording through the handle. I have bought the cording but haven't done it yet, makes sense though.

Nope no letter. I don't think that I am on their mailing list Which is not necessarily a bad thing for the simple reason that I have too many children to buy gifts for

However I do not mind pushing ...er...helping other people to spend their money

Note about the twisted cord.
Mine needed more felting than the bag did, so if you do that its something to watch for.
